Johnny Depp is Hearing Things

Johnny Depp isn’t doing so well. First, there’s his divorce from Amber Heard. She did alright when she rebounded with billionaire Elon Musk. Ouch.

His finances are dwindling. Depp spends an insane amount of money but evidently, doesn’t bring enough in. Also, he wastes it on things like shooting Hunter Thompson’s ashes from a cannon. That cost $3 million. Depp even sued his business manager because the money disappeared so fast.

Friends fear he’s dying. He doesn’t look well. His teeth are rotting, his skin looks sickly and these friends paint a grim picture.

Now, he’s hearing things. Like literally. His business manager filed a lawsuit against Depp. Among the lawsuit’s claims:

Notably, the managers also claim that Depp spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on a sound engineer who feeds him lines on set.

“Depp insisted that this sound engineer be kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorize his lines,” writes attorney Michael Kump.

Wow, nice. This is something his idol Marlon Brando would’ve done. Brando taped cue cards all around the set instead of memorizing his lines. He said this made him more spontaneous. It also likely made him lazier.

This isn’t even a petty rumor started by the manager. In the past, Kirsten Dunst said he wears one on set, but not to get lines fed to him.

“But Johnny Depp has music playing in his ear when he acts,” she said. “He has an earbud. That’s why he’s so great.”

[…]

“I don’t know if he does it on every project, but I know he does,” Dunst said.

Dunst also said he probably hides it with her hair and that everyone in Hollywood knows it because “word gets around.”

Depp is turning into a caricature. I’m pretty sure this can be traced back to when he accepted the Captain Sparrow role. Once he put on those scarves, it was all over.
