Johnny Depp has been accused of spending $2 million a month
The 53-year-old actor has been accused of spending beyond his means by bosses at The Management Group.
They claim his "extravagant lifestyle" has resulted in his financial problems and even stated in the lawsuit that the A-lister spent $3 million to blast author Hunter S. Thompson’s ashes out of a specially made canon in Colorado.
His business managers filed the lawsuit after Johnny sued them earlier this month for mishandling his finances.
The Edward Scissorhands star claimed the firm collected $28 million in fees that he never agreed to, repeatedly failed to file or pay his taxes on time and loaned around $10 million of his money without authorisation.

Johnny Depp lived an ultra-extravagant lifestyle!
But TMG – led by Joel and Robert Mandel – have said they have done all they could to maintain Johnny’s finances and raised caution when it came to his spending habits.
Attorney Michael Kump states in the claim: "Depp 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.”
"Depp, and Depp alone, is fully responsible for any financial turmoil he finds himself in today.
"Depp also paid over $3 million to blast from a specially-made cannon the ashes of author Hunter Thompson over Aspen, Colorado. Depp is responsible for his own financial waste."
