Pirate Johnny Dumps Asset Booty In Post Divorce Purge
[otw_shortcode_dropcap label=”T” font=”Bowlby One SC” color_class=”otw-black-text” background_color_class=”otw-no-background” size=”large” border_color_class=”otw-no-border-color”][/otw_shortcode_dropcap]Thankfully, Johnny Depp’s divorce from Amber Heard “only” cost the actor the relatively paltry sum of $7 million. But perhaps he was sufficiently spooked by the experience to ensure his next romantic interest pursues him purely for his good looks. How else can we explain his recent purging of assets, which has now taken on a Hare Krishna like devotion.
You know you’re wealthy when you can sell an entire town—and, of course, that’s what Depp did, casually listing a French village he owns for $55 million. Also expunged were eight Basquiat paintings via a Christie’s auction. Now, according to the Wall St Journal, he has listed five adjacent penthouses in the Eastern Columbia Building, also known as the Eastern Columbia Lofts in the Broadway Theater District of Downtown Los Angeles.
Depp purchased all the penthouses for $7.2 million in 2007 but never combined them, using them instead as various rooms in a home, not wanting to disrupt the “integrity” of the spaces, the Journal reported. Must be nice. They total 11,500 square feet and can be purchased individually.
But the hits keep coming. Also for sale, as reported in Affari Italiani, is Depp’s Venetian mansion with an asking price of $10.9 million. The home is known as the Palazzo Donå Sangiantoffetti. It overlooks Venice’s Grand Canal and, according to the NY Post’s Page Six, once belonged to a Venetian family who owned ships used to battle the Turks. You know, just an average day with another eight figure transaction.
But it’s not as if Depp is completely cashing out. Let’s not forget that he also happens to own a 45-acre private island in the Bahamas called Little Hall’s Pond Cay. There’s also a 156-foot steam powered yacht called Vajoliroja, a $17 million mansion in Somerset, England, a $ 3 million pad in West LA, a burger restaurant, a football team, fashion line, perfume fragrance and vodka brand. And if you pay him enough, he’ll endorse your uncle’s second hand car dealership. My God, the man’s a walking billboard.
OK, so maybe the Hare Krishna comparison was stretching it a bit.
