Johnny Depp Says Ex-Managers Suing Him Is a Joke, IRS Docs Prove It

2/22/2017 2:58 PM PST

Johnny Depp's ex-managers have a collective brass pair for suing him ... according to Johnny who says he has massive tax receipts to prove how much they screwed him.

Depp and his old management firm, TMG, are locked in a huge legal battle -- first, Johnny said they defrauded him out of $25 million and then TMG filed a countersuit against him. But in new docs, Johnny says it's laughable they'd try to sue him.

According to the docs, Johnny says TMG cost him more than $6 million in fines and penalties to the IRS from 2000 to 2015. He says the firm also dropped a seven-figure screw job on him for his California state taxes. To be clear, Depp's already paid the penalties, but he ain't happy about it.

Depp says his new management discovered TMG's "negligence and misconduct" in 2016 -- it's one of the reasons he originally filed his fraud lawsuit last month.

He's submitting the proof of bad performance to convince a judge to toss TMG's suit against him.

The article talks about wine collecting and says that investing $30k/month isn't all that much among sophisticated oenophiles. Some bottles are worth a great deal. An LA wine merchant said JD used to spend more per month and that he was a serious, knowledgable, and sophisticated collector. The article went on to describe collecting wine as a form of investment that often pays off very well. There was a lot of information about investing in wine and most of the article has nothing to do with Johnny.

I had not, either, but apparently quite a few people do. It certainly puts a whole different light on what Johnny was doing.

All very sad. :no2: Have been awaiting the next Pirates. Still want to see Johnny in action despite what has been said and written. Only Johnny knows the real truth about everything that has happened in recent years/months. And I do not think I really want to know nor should I. He is the master of his own fate. If he was mislead whose fault is it really. People are people, they make good choices and bad choices.
I just want to see good ole Captain Jack again.
Johnny you rock and rock in the saddle that suits you. :cool:

They were making Beer 6000 yrs ago and some spirits survived in the Pyramids, Those have to be worth millions or just plain priceless. So I can see him selling off his investment and not drinking any of it. :lol: Especially when table wine can be just as tasty and just as inebriating. :lol:

I'll drink to that. But give me a bottle of mellow Jack(Daniels or Sparrow who cares) and I will be just fine! :lol: :harhar: :biglaugh:

Hopefully, this awesome new Pirate movie will get him back on track financially. I believe Johnny does indeed overspend and he probably didn't pay the attention to his finances the way he should have. He is truly guilty of being too generous to his friends and family and so giving and caring to so many charities and people in need, his handlers may not even know all he has given to so many. In my eyes he is a hero and I love him to death because of this situation he is in, he will come out of all of it, but he wont stop giving and caring as he has always done..You rock Johnny!!!!

Why has Johnny or more likely his lawyers agreed to this:
Waldman countered in a statement to PEOPLE, saying that evidence supporting Depp has been redacted from the complaint at the request of TMG attorneys Joel and Robert Mandel.
I would think, that they shouldn't "help" TMG in any way whatsoever by removing evidence of what the firm has done :rolleyes: So can anybody explain why that has been done - or am I misunderstanding the word 'redacted' :perplexed: ?

It's difficult to say for sure. I'm guessing that both sides are negotiating a settlement of some sort.
They are probably trying to narrow the scope of each complaint and focus on the allegations they feel strongly about and have the most evidence to win a verdict.

Sort of like....we'll remove this if you remove that. Legal negotiations al a Jack Sparrow. :bigwink:

I understood that Johnny's lawyer in the last complaint filed, he redacted from the claims of TMG, adding evidence against TMG itself
