Despite several controversies, particularly over the last few years, Johnny Depp continues to be one of Hollywood's best earning and most popular actors. With franchises including Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them under his belt, a long-term working relationship with Tim Burton resulting in over nine films, it's fair to say that the actor has an impressive net worth, particularly as he is also a winemaker and restaurateur, and is a member of the band Hollywood Vampires. But just how much is he worth?
What is Johnny Depp's net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Edward Scissorhands actor is estimated to be worth an incredible £147.4million, and makes around £14.7million per film. However, the 54-year-old isn't without financial difficulties. According to The Sun, Johnny maintains a 40-person team and spends nearly £22k per month on wine, £113k a month on bodyguards and £150k on private jet travel. He also began a lawsuit against his business manager, The Management Group, back in early 2017, alleging that he was the victim of "gross mismanagement" which has cost him "tens of millions of dollars".

Responding to the lawsuit, TMG's representative Michael Kemp claimed that the firm did "everything possible to protect Depp from his irresponsible and profligate spending", adding that Johnny owed the company over £3million. He said: "His tactics and lawsuit will fail, and he will be forced to pay back the loan as promised." Johnny also paid his ex-wife, Amber Heard, £5.6million as part of their divorce settlement, which the Justice League actress then donated to charity. The actress promised to give half of the money to the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, who recently included her in their Honour Roll of Donors list. The 2017 Annual report revealed that Amber donated between $1-5million to the charity. It read: "We are honoured to acknowledge our extraordinary donors for their generosity during fiscal year 2017. On behalf of all the children and families whose lives you have impacted, and everything at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, we offer our sincere thanks."

Split from Amber Heard and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them criticism
Amber initially accused Johnny of domestic abuse but the pair released a joint statement through E! News following their settlement, which read: "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity. There will be no further public statements about this matter." However, the accusations caused some to question why he continued to be given film roles, with his part of Grindelwald in JK Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them particularly coming under fire.

Addressing fan concerns on her website, the Harry Potter author wrote: "When Johnny Depp was cast as Grindelwald, I thought he'd be wonderful in the role. However, around the time of filming his cameo in the first movie, stories had appeared in the press that deeply concerned me and everyone most closely involved in the franchise… For me personally, the inability to speak openly to fans about this issue has been difficult, frustrating and at times painful. However, the agreements that have been put in place to protect the privacy of two people, both of whom have expressed a desire to get on with their lives, must be respected. Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies."

Children and past relationships
Johnny has two children from his long-term relationship with Vanessa Paradis – Lily-Rose and Jack. Lily-Rose is becoming a prolific supermodel in her own right, and has starred in campaigns for Chanel, and has appeared on the cover of Vogue, Glamour and Elle. Speaking about her parents in an interview with Vogue, she explained how they were supportive when she left school at 15, explaining: "They both left school when they were 15, so they can't really say anything. You know what I mean? I've never thought of university as my goal. I've always just wanted to work and be independent. I didn't have any incentive to keep doing all that work. I read a lot of books, and I research stuff myself that interests me." She added: "My parents weren't very strict. They've always trusted me to be independent and make my own decisions. There wasn't really anything to rebel against."

As well as Amber and Vanessa, Johnny has been known to date several high profile stars. He was married to Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1985, and has also dated Jennifer Grey, Kate Moss and Winona Ryder. He was so devoted to Winona that he had a tattoo which read: "Winona forever," which he later changed to "Wino forever". Following his domestic abuse allegations, the Stranger Things actress was among Johnny's exes who claimed he had never been abusive in their relationship, telling Time magazine: "I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said. I mean, he was never, never that way towards me. Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves."

As well as a thriving acting career and other businesses, Johnny also does plenty of charity work, and often dresses up as his popular character Captain Jack Sparrow to visit children in hospital. Speaking about his work on The Graham Norton Show, he said: "To me they're giving me the gift… I've spent time in Great Ormond Street. I was the parent when my daughter was ill and it was – I've known darkness in my life but that was the darkest period ever… I'd always done these visits but after that the visits became more and more important because the kids, bless them, they're so strong, so courageous but the parents are the ones who are slowly dying and to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to these people means everything in the world to me."
