Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow

How actor Johnny Depp spent $650 million dollars

The Pirates of the Caribbean star explained to the court in London (where the actor sued the English newspaper The Sun for writing he was a "wife beater") his financial situation regarding why he was angry to his then wife, actress Amber Heard.

  • There were always rumors of the excesses of Johnny Depp.
  • The actor has now a net worth of approximately $200 million. He entered the Guinness World Records as the highest earning actor in the world for one year.
  • His controversial purchases include more than $30.000 dollars monthly in wine, security 24hs, mansions around the world and jewelry.

Depp explained the jury that he made a staggering amount of money with his most successful films, Pirates of the Caribbean II and III.

Because he is not a financial expert, and doesn't know what to do with so much money, he hired a management firm to handle his investments. He said they don't only manage to make bad decisions, but also to avoid paying tax government for more than 15 years. In reality, he also helped to splash a couple of millions.


He spent over $60 million in properties (Los Angeles apartments, several houses in Hollywood Hills, a farm in France with private restaurant, and one island).

His Bahamas island

According to his ex-girlfriend, British supermodel Kate Moss, they stayed in $20.000 per night hotels in Paris, although she had an apartment in the same city.

His yacht

Apart from spending his money on art and alcohol, he also gave a lot to charity, including 1 million to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital. Oh, last but not least, a purchase that costed $300.000 to maintain (monthly!): a $20 million super yacht.
