Johnny Depp’s legal suit!

American actor and musician Johnny Depp is in some deep financial crisis! At the start of 2017, Johnny Depp had filed a case against his former management company called TMG for cheating him to the tune of $ 25 million or more. He has termed their actions as acts of ‘gross misconduct’, ‘unauthorized loan payments’, and ‘fraudulent self-activity’ without his permission.

He has now added after several months the names of his sister, nephew, and close friends as the people to whom the loans were provided without his permission. TMG has refuted the charges and has counter-sued Johnny Depp stating that all his accusations on them are false.

They claim that they issued loans to his near ones only after his signature or that of his ‘Dembrowski’ who is Depp’s inner circle and who runs his production company ‘Infintum Nihil’.

They additionally accused Depp of not monitoring his expenses in spite of being told to do so. They alleged that he has not paid the debts he owed to TMG and showed an inclination to avoid it.

They issued a new statement which stated:

“In his attempt to avoid paying his debts to TMG, Depp is knowingly throwing his closest family, friends, and employees under the bus.”

Keratoconus and visual impairment

Depp has not specified the cause of his visual problem. But it has been supposed that it is due to Keratoconus. This condition is bulging of the cornea of the eye due to corneal thinning.

This leads to image distortion and blurred vision. It could be in both or one eye/s.

Rigid contact lenses are used for less severe cases but it could hurt the soft cornea and cause more problems. The corneal transplant has been tried with variable success.
