Johnny Depp Falls Into Disgrace Again!
Hollywood’s favorite celebrity star, Johnny Depp has once again gained the limelight as another lawsuit is filed against him. All the descriptions from the allegations sound very normal for the Pirates of the Caribbean character.
However, Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean isn’t facing this lawsuit. Rather it’s Johnny Depp himself.
Lawsuit Against Depp
Two of Johnny Depp’s bodyguards, Eugene Arreola and Miguel Sanchez have accused Depp of creating a “toxic” work environment with unpaid wages and working conditions that portray a lifestyle of chaos.
The suit actually claims,
Often times plaintiffs were forced to protect Depp from himself and his vices while in public. An incident at a local nightclub involved plaintiffs alerting Depp of illegal substances visible on his face and person while preventing onlookers from noticing Depp’s condition.
Further, the body guards have also claimed that Johnny Depp did not pay them overtime from May 2016 to January 2018. The actor apparently also deprived them of off-duty meals and breaks for 12 hour shifts. The lawsuit also claimed that he used his former bodyguards as drivers. The guards had to drive around minors and illegal substances as per Depp’s request. Looks like Captain Jack Sparrow is going to have a hard time sailing out of this one!
The bodyguards went on in their allegations about unsafe working conditions to mention a situation when the head of Depp’s security team shot himself in the leg and they had to drive him to the hospital.
As per the suit, Miguel Sanchez also had take care of Johnny Depp’s child, giving him the role of a ‘caretaker‘ more than that of a bodyguard.
Sanchez, whose primary detail was the protection of Depp’s children, was more often than not the primary caretaker for Depp’s minor child, who lived off of Depp’s compound in a separate home alone.
Why Didn’t Depp Pay the Bodyguards?
The biggest mystery of Hollywood still remains. How can a Hollywood star who is known to have earned more than $650m struggle to pay his guards? Maybe, the question should is something psychologists can answer and not accountants! Johnny Depp must have spent all of it. One thing we are sure of is that even Captain Jack Sparrow wouldn’t approve of this extravagance!
The Hollywood must be full of jerks who overspend, but Johnny Depp has no match in the industry here too! Fast cars, planes, yachts, a string of Caribbean Islands, and umm, spending $30,000 per month on wine.
Lately, Johnny Depp has had numerous clashes with his managers, guards and lawyers. Consequently, leading to him firing many of his staff. All of these former Johnny Depp employees have sued him in the courts of law on the basis of broken contracts and outstanding fees, draining Depp’s treasure chest and bringing his extravagant lifestyles back into public discussions.
