In his lawsuit, Depp's lawyers argued,
"As a result of years of gross mismanagement and sometimes outright fraud, Mr. Depp lost tens of millions of dollars and has been forced to dispose of significant assets to pay for TMG's self-dealing and gross misconduct."
He demands more than $25 million for all the negligence and fraud.
TMG's claims on Johnny
On 2016 January 31, the actor's former business managers cross-complained, counterclaiming that the actor lived an "ultra-extravagant lifestyle that often knowingly cost Depp in excess of $2 million per month to maintain, which he simply could not afford."
They further said that Depp waste $30,000 only on wine from around the world.
As a counteract, TMG sees things conflictingly and the management organization asks The Oscar-nominated star to settle the matter paying up for more than $560,000 in assertedly unpaid commissions and credit card fees.
TMG also demanded a court statement that "complied with all of its fiduciary obligations under the law and that Depp is responsible for his own financial waste."
In the court papers, his former managers noted that they cautioned Depp about his debt explosion, and even warned him to get a prenup before marrying Amber Heard, which terminated costing him a $7 million settlement.
He has been selling off some of his assets in the past year for all the tasks.
