The defamation lawsuit is the talk of the town these days and it seems like it’s not gonna end soon. After a slew of shocking revelations by Amber Heard, Johnny Depp’s former agent Joel Mandel revealed many details about the Hollywood actor during the testimony.
For those who are unaware, Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard are having a legal lawsuit against each other after Depp sued Heard for $50 million over an article she wrote in The Washington Post in 2018. In response to that, she countersued him for $100million claiming that Depp defamed her when his legal team referred to her claims as “fake” and a “sexual violence hoax”.
Shocking Revelations of Johnny Depp’s Habits by Ex-Money Manager
Johnny Depp’s former financial manager Joel Mandel described the actor’s spending in testimony shown to jurors on Thursday, telling that it has become increasingly irresponsible over the 17 years he worked with him. According to Mandel, Depp earned more than $600 million between 1999 and 2016.
Somewhere in 2010, after Depp shot The Rum Diaries, Mandel said the Depp’s expenses had surged suddenly. This was the same movie where he met Amber for the first time.
He also added that at the time of The Rum Diaries, Depp consumed more alcohol and drugs than ever, and that made it difficult for them to have a conversation about his finances.
“What I had always experienced as someone who liked to enjoy his wine at the end of his day became consumption that became excessive,” Mandel said in the prerecorded deposition.

During the testimony, Mandel revealed the amount of money Depp used to spend. According to Mandel, he spent a stunning $100,000 every month on David Kipper, a doctor Depp hired in 2014 to help treat his addiction issues.
In addition to that, he spent $300,000 p for a full-time staff that included Nathan Holmes, a former personal assistant, Kevin Murphy, a former property manager; and Stephen Deuters, another personal assistant who also worked on Depp’s creative projects.
Along with that, he spent a total of $10,000 every day on Jerry Judge who was Depp’s former security manager. Judge employed a team of guards and other security officials who guarded Depp around the clock.
He also revealed that Johnny also seldom gave to charity, “I don’t recall writing large charity checks,” Mandel said. “It was more his style to show up at an event or lend his name something rather than write a check.”
