The lifestyle of the rich and the famous comes with a price tag many of is couldn’t begin to imagine, no example of which could be better than Johnny Depp.

According to a lawsuit filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court by The Management Group (TMG), during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Depp was struggling to keep himself from financial ruin due to his lifestyle. He’s reportedly got 14 different homes, a yacht and a monthly wine bill that would put your yearly rent check to shame. Basically, he’s got everything many of us wish for on a too-often basis.

According to a lawsuit filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court by The Management Group (TMG), during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Depp was struggling to keep himself from financial ruin due to his lifestyle. He’s reportedly got 14 different homes, a yacht and a monthly wine bill that would put your yearly rent check to shame. Basically, he’s got everything many of us wish for on a too-often basis.

According to the lawsuit, TMG is suing Depp for breach of contract and promissory fraud, pleading with the courts not to be swayed by his status. Their reports have it listed that his properties cost around $75 million to purchase and continue upkeep, the yacht was $18 million and each month he purchases around $30,000 worth of wine. Twelve separate storage units contain the actor’s collection of Hollywood memorabilia and fine arts, which he utilizes private jets to go buy. As his fame increased so did his appetite for the lavish, pushing his lifestyle beyond the means of what he could afford.

Initially he would ask for advances for acting in the movies he starred in, mainly from Disney, but eventually, that transformed into taking out loans from City National Bank. When he got an eye on a property he wanted there would be no talking him out of it, he had to have it. To help him out there, CNB and the First Republic Bank gave him several residential loans. One thing about borrowing money, however, the people you borrow from eventually want that money back and you can’t pay it when you’re in the red already. Not to mention, most of us never see this situation coming, which goes a long way in compounding the problem.

The reports state that multiple attempts to speak with Mr. Depp about switching up his habits a bit proved unsuccessful and were often met with profane tirades of narcissistic rage. They even go so far as to state that Depp would abuse the financial advisors and inform them how they’ll just work harder to get him what he wanted. A report from back in 2008 outlines an email advising Him against the purchase of a new home, to which he responded by purchasing the house.If these accounts are true then we have one very high pedestal to see the actor fall from, though we hope it doesn’t come to that (his movies are pretty good).

Depp has promised more than once to change his ways, but it never happens. Finally, it’s time to face the music, though someone needs to tell that to him! Just last month he filed a lawsuit against TMG under the claims that his new business manager found serious misconduct’, though the management group is under the impression it’s only to stall the foreclosure proceedings they started in an attempt to get back the $4.2 million he has left to pay.
