Depp settles lawsuit with ex-managers
Johnny Depp has settled a lawsuit with his former managers a month before they were due in court.
The 55-year-old sued the Management Group in January 2017 and accused them of spending millions of dollars behind his back, an allegation they denied.
He was seeking $25m (€21.4m) in damages.
The Management Group, led by Joel and Robert Mandel, filed a counter-suit and said Depp had been responsible for his financial woes, accusing him of spending millions of dollars on luxury homes, wine, art and a cannon used to scatter the ashes of writer Hunter S Thompson.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star has now settled the lawsuit, meaning a planned trial on August 15 will not go ahead.
A spokesman for Depp said: "Johnny Depp is pleased to have achieved a settlement agreement with The Management Group. The lawsuit taken out against The Management Group - and the subsequent settlement - is a further demonstration that Johnny is determined to take firm action to protect his personal and artistic reputation in the interests of his family and his career."
