This clip's all over the internet. I couldn't help but watch...

CLICK TWO: Have you ever thought about what you'd do if you had an obscene amount of money? Who hasn't, right? I can tell you this- blowing it all frivolously didn't make my top-10 list.

Has Johnny Depp Blown Through $650 Million in 13 Years?

The "Hollywood Reporter" dove deep into JOHNNY DEPP's legal dispute with his former money managers, and it does sound like Johnny just had no interest in reigning in his spending, whether he had the cash or not.

The Management Group claims Johnny made $650 MILLION in the 13 years he was with them.  And while he was never LITERALLY broke, he didn't have enough liquid cash to fund his $2 million-a-month lifestyle.

 

A lot of the money was tied up in his crazy purchases.  Like three islands in the Bahamas that he bought for $5.35 million.  Or the five properties he scooped up on a cul-de-sac in West Hollywood.

 

He also had a 40-person staff that cost him $3.6 million a year.  He spent $350,000 a month to maintain a 156-foot yacht . . . which he sold in 2015.  He had originally bought the thing for $10 million, and spent $8 million renovating it.

  

And he shells out big bucks to support his ex Vanessa Paradis and their two kids.  And let's not forget about the $30,000 he spends on wine PER MONTH.

Johnny is blaming The Management Group for mismanaging his income.  But they say they warned him multiple times about his spending, and he just wouldn't listen.  Which isn't hard to believe about a guy who spent $5 million to blast Hunter Thompson's ashes out of a cannon.  (You can read more about this chaos here.)

CLICK THREE: President Rock? Maybe.

There's a "Real Possibility" Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Will Run for President

Celebrity presidents are a thing now.  And the next one up might just be . . . DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON.  In the new issue of "GQ", he says it's a "real possibility" he could run someday.

 

As for affiliation, he's registered as an independent, and he refused to endorse either DONALD TRUMP or HILLARY CLINTON last year, even though they both asked for his blessing.

 

He said, quote, "I feel like I'm in a position now where my word carries a lot of weight and influence, which of course is why they want the endorsement.  But . . . it might sway an opinion, which I didn't want to do."
