Around this time about 18 years ago, Johnny Depp was one of Hollywood’s most profitable stars thanks in part to the release of Pirates of the Caribbean.

History/Early Life Story
John Christopher Depp II was born on June 9, 1963, in Owensboro, Kentucky. He has three older siblings. His family moved frequently during his childhood, eventually settling in Miramar, Florida.
Depp began playing in various bands after his mother gifted him a guitar when he was 12 years old, eventually dropping out of high school to become a rock musician. His band The Kids relocated to Los Angeles, but split up soon after.
Depp then chose to pursue an acting career on the advice of actor Nicolas Cage, whom Depp met through his first wife.

For the majority of his career, Depp’s finances were managed by a company called The Management Group. In 2017, he filed a lawsuit accusing them of “gross mismanagement and, at times, outright fraud.” Depp alleged that the firm caused him to lose tens of millions of dollars, racked up more than $40 million in debt without his knowledge, failed to file his property taxes on time, made unauthorized loans, and overpaid for security and other services, amongst other charges.
The Management Group counter-sued, claiming that despite the fact that Depp had been paid $650 million in the previous 13 years, his unbelievably lavish spending habits made it so he no longer had enough liquid cash to cover his basic monthly expenses, which topped $2 million per month. They claimed that Depp put himself in this position by over-spending in a reckless way.
Depp reportedly spends $3.6 million per year to maintain a 40-person full-time staff, $30,000 per month on wine, $150,000 per month on bodyguards, and $200,000 per month on private jet travel. He also reportedly spent $75 million to purchase more than 14 homes around the world including a 45 acre chateau in France, a horse farm in Kentucky, and several islands in the Bahamas.
If he were to sell his entire real estate portfolio, it would easily be worth $100 million. He owns several yachts, more than 45 cars, 12 storage facilities worth of memorabilia, and an art collection that includes works by artists such as Andy Warhol. Depp also reportedly once spent $5 million to have the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson fired from a cannon off a 153-foot tower.
Depp is still one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors. He commands $20 million upfront per movie, plus 20% of the backend. That deal has resulted in more than $300 million earned off the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise alone. He also made $55 million in backend earnings off “Alice in Wonderland.
