On Tuesday, forensic accountant Mike Spindler testified in the ongoing legal battle between actor Johnny Depp and his former business managers, The Management Group (TMG). Spindler was called to testify about Depp’s lost earnings since 2018, when he wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post about his financial struggles.
According to Spindler, he analyzed Depp’s earnings since the op-ed was published and concluded that the actor had lost approximately $40 million in potential earnings. Spindler noted that Depp’s earnings were affected by a number of factors, including the actor’s decision to leave the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and the cancellation of the sequel to the 2018 film, City of Lies.
In addition to the lost earnings, Spindler also noted that Depp had to pay out a number of legal fees related to the ongoing legal battle with TMG. He estimated that Depp had paid out over $5 million in legal fees since 2018.
Spindler also noted that Depp had to sell off a number of his assets in order to pay off his debts. These assets included his private island in the Bahamas, his French estate, and his yacht.
Overall, it appears that Johnny Depp has lost a significant amount of money since 2018. He has lost out on potential earnings, paid out a large amount of legal fees, and had to sell off a number of his assets. It remains to be seen how this ongoing legal battle will affect Depp’s future earnings.
