London [UK], Sept. 22 (ANI): Controversy's favourite child Johnny Depp has landed himself in one more controversy.
According to The Independent, Depp has been accused of throwing family and friends "under a bus" during a multi-million dollar legal wrangling with his former management company.
The 54-year-old actor is now clashing with a number of people close to him - after he accused them of taking money from him during a battle with The Management Company, who say he owes them huge debts.
"In his attempt to avoid paying his debts to TMG, Depp is knowingly throwing his closest family, friends and employees under the bus. He is falsely alleging that they took millions of dollars in unauthorised payments from him," said in a statement.
The statement continued, "It is no wonder that Depp delayed for months in revealing their names."
"Depp's claims of unauthorised loans to the new Cross-Defendants are not a basis for Depp to obtain a judicial declaration requiring the disgorgement of any business management fees from TMG, or for any of his other baseless claims. Depp's closest friends, family, and colleagues who have been added as new Cross-Defendants in this action have only Depp to blame for their involvement in this charade," the statement concluded.
A trial for the case is set to begin on August 15,2018. (ANI)
