Johnny Depp's extravagant spending detailed in court documents

Jul 20, 2017 15

The ongoing legal battle between actor Johnny Depp and his former business managers just got a little more interesting. New court documents allege that the actor’s extravagant spending habits are to blame for his current financial situation more so than any wrongdoing from The Mandel Company, that previously handled his money.

As previously reported, Depp is claiming that Joel Mandel and his group caused him to go into debt, while Mandel has stated in court that the actor was spending roughly $2 million a month. Now, new court documents are detailing exactly what some of those expenses were.

The documents, published by The Hollywood Reporter, reveal some interesting purchases from Depp including $500,000 in rental fees for storage warehouses that hold his Hollywood collectibles, $17,000 in handbags and luggage from Prada and a whopping $7,000 on a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” couch for his young daughter.

Additionally, Depp reportedly allowed the employees on his private island in the Bahamas to charge $123,000-worth of expenses for his $1 million wedding to Amber Heard, which only about a dozen people reportedly showed up for. A $9,500 price tag was revealed for “safari” thatch hut material for the island as well. Even $7,000 in suits from Tom Ford was allegedly charged to his CNB Visa card, which The Mandel Company says it warned the 54-year-old actor would inevitably bankrupt him.

The new expenses were reportedly revealed after the management group’s second amended cross-complaint following Depp’s decision to sue The Mandel Group for $25 million in January.

Jul 20, 2017 23

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has died on what would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday.

The Soundgarden singer hanged himself on May 18, and now Bennington’s death is also being investigated as a possible suicide, as TMZ reports he hanged himself, too.

The two performers were close friends and even toured together in 2007 and 2008. Bennington joined Cornell for a version of Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike,” and Cornell performed alongside Linkin Park for their 2000 hit “Crawling.”

Bennington was also reportedly the godfather of one of Cornell’s three children.

Cornell’s widow Vicky tweeted out a message for the 41-year-old’s wife Talinda Ann Bentley.

On the day of Cornell’s passing, Bennington wrote a lengthy post via Instagram describing how the rocker impacted him:

Bennington performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at the Soundgarden singer’s memorial in late May.

TMZ reported Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and had previously talked about suicide as the result of childhood trauma and abuse.

The report also listed naloxone, an anti-opioid drug, and a decongestant. However, Dr. Theodore Brown, assistant Wayne County medical examiner, announced the drugs found in Cornell’s body did not contribute to his death.

Bennington leaves behind six children from two marriages.

Linkin Park's Chester Bennington dead at 41 from apparent suicide

Jul 20, 2017 17

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington has died at the age of 41, according to The Los Angeles County Coroner. A spokesperson for the coroner’s office confirmed that the death is being investigated as an apparent suicide.

Bennington allegedly hanged himself inside a private home in Palos Verdes Estates in Los Angeles County, TMZ reports. According to the gossip site, the singer struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and had previously talked about suicide as the result of childhood trauma and abuse.

For years, he acted as the frontman to the rock group, whose hits include “Faint,” “In the End” and “Crawling.”

The news comes on the same day the band debuted a new music video for the song “Talking To Myself” off their latest album, “One More Light.” Previously, Bennington described how personal the new album was to him on the band’s official Facebook page.

“In the beginning, we wanted to challenge ourselves musically… but then it became more about our lives,” he said. “I sang things in the lyrics of this album that only my wife and closest friends know. I did it because I know there are other people out there who have gone through the stuff I have, and it feels better to know you’re not alone.”

The band’s website listed show dates to promote the album spanning from July 27 to October 22. Linkin Park’s debut album, “Hybrid Theory,” sold 10 million copies in 2000. The follow up album in 2003, “Meteora” earned the band another 4 million.

He leaves behind six children from two marriages.

Red West, longtime Elvis confidant dead

Jul 20, 2017 14

Actor and songwriter Robert Gene “Red” West, a longtime confidant of Elvis Presley, has died in Memphis.

Danita Allen of Memorial Park Funeral Home said West died Tuesday. He was 81. His wife, Pat West, told The Commercial Appeal he died at Baptist Hospital after suffering from an aortic aneurysm.

West met Presley in high school and worked for him for 20 years. He was a friend, driver and bodyguard. He also took small roles in some of Presley’s films and co-wrote some songs Presley sang including “Separate Ways” and “If You Talk In Your Sleep.”

After being fired by Presley’s father in 1976, West became a full-time actor and appeared on TV shows and in movies. His most famous role was in 1989’s “Road House” starring Patrick Swayze.

Katie Couric: Fake news is ripping America 'apart at the seams'

Jul 20, 2017 17

Katie Couric says fake news is “tearing” the United States “apart at the seams.”

The Yahoo News anchor expressed her concern over people falling for fake news and called upon her fellow journalists to do a better job at helping people understand “complicated issues.”

“I remember I got sent a lot of stories from friends who were quite educated and were like, ‘Did you see this?'” she told the New York Daily News. “And I would say, ‘Come on, you’re kidding, right? This is BS.'”

She added, “We’re not doing enough of a good job of breaking down complicated issues and helping people really understand them.”

While Couric blasted what she called fake news sites, she avoided placing blame on the mainstream media.

However, she did say the lines between straight news and opinion “have been blurred considerably.”

“[Americans] are so divided that it’s hard for us to come up with solutions and find commonalities,” she said. “And there’s vitriol spewed by both sides at people who disagree with them.”

Couric herself has been accused of reporting fake news. She was hit with a $12 million lawsuit over her documentary “Under the Gun.” Pro-gun activists accused Couric of deceptive editing but the case was dismissed in May.

The 26-year-old told Fox News she served Saran with a cease and desist order.

“Farrah is happy she will not have her ex harassing or stalking her further,” a rep for the star told us.

Saran told E! News, “I don’t need drama in my life at this point. She can say what she wants, but we all know who the real one is and who the fraud is. I have no hard feelings against Farrah. We are just from two different worlds. She likes the fake life, I want what’s real. I wish the best for her and much success in all of her future endeavors.”

Abraham wrote a series of tweets earlier this month slamming her ex.

“why are you trying to get attention, your pathetic & im a great mother, professional, friend & women go STOP using me for money.”
