Johnny Depp is fed lines through earpiece, ex-managers claim
Johnny Depp’s former managers have claimed the star is fed his lines through an earpiece so he doesn’t have to memorise his scripts, US media say.
The bombshell comes from a new court filing in an increasingly bitter battle between the actor and his ex-managers.
He’s suing them for mismanaging his money and they’re countersuing him.
Among their claims about his spending, they say he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to employ a sound engineer to read him his lines on film sets.
The actor has used the method “for years to feed him lines during film production”, according to a court document that was filed on Monday.
“Depp insisted that this sound engineer be kept on yearly retainer so that he no longer had to memorise his lines,” according to the papers, written by attorney Michael Kump on behalf of The Management Group’s Joel and Robert Mandel. – Source
