When it comes to large telecast lawsuit trials that ever took place, we were fortunate enough to be present for Johnny Depp Vs. Amber Heard, is probably one of the biggest lawsuit cases of the decade. While it seemed like the case could go in favor of any of the two parties involved in the lawsuit at first, the righteous won in the end. Johnny Depp single-handedly won the case with the majority of the jury and the public in favor of him on 1st June 2022. In a case exceeding the courtroom boundaries, this was a monumental victory for Depp and his supporters against Amber Heard’s hoax allegations.
While Heard might have tried to sway the public and the jury with her false accusations, she might not be the only one who wasn’t speaking the truth.
In a recent report by The Management Group, which was the management firm that previously managed Depp’s portfolio, a possibility arose that he might not have disclosed what he was truly worth, and possibly might’ve exaggerated the losses from the case.
How Much Is Johnny Depp Worth?
Johnny Depp has been part of some of the most successful film franchises in the industry, so naturally, there will be no surprise that his net worth would be astronomical in size. From being part of the Pirates Of The Caribbean to Disney’s Alice In Wonderland and the Fantastic Beasts series, in total, the new estimated net worth for the Rango actor is almost $650 Million, which is a far loftier number than the one which was previously claimed.
This monetary figure is shocking as Depp himself stated that he had lost a lot of his net worth during his defamation trial against Amber Heard, so seeing that he made so much money to his name in these 13 years makes him a big liar. It’s not a well-known fact, but Depp was infamous for his stunts at parties to be the top spender whenever it came to celebrating like a big boy, so saying that he lost a hefty chunk of money due to the libel case would be letting him off the hook easy. He also stated that he was “$100 million in the hole,” after losing his net worth, which is a little suspicious when we think about it as he had previously received $15 million from the libel case and an additional $10 million after winning the defamation case. The actor also had to sell his ultra-luxurious mansion in Australia for a record-breaking $40 million.
Was Johnny Depp Right?
After all, there is no right and wrong when it comes down to the legal aspects of these claims, all we can say is that Depp did not lie so much so that he hid the truth from everyone. It’s a shame though that he had to do so, and in the process, he might have disappointed a lot of his supporters. Claiming that he had suffered losses is true as he had lost a lot of his movie roles, not to mention, the goodwill that he held in the industry along with it was gone as well. But exaggerating about the losses was something of a questionable decision or just an impulse from frustration.
Either way, this just goes to show that some of the most honest ones might also have to use a white lie once in a while.
