“I was as low as I believe I could have gotten. The next step was, ‘You’re going to arrive somewhere with your eyes open and you are going to leave with your eyes closed’. I couldn’t take the pain every day,” Depp told rollingstone.com, recalling his emotional state in the midst of his failed marriage and his simultaneously collapsing financial situation.

Depp had a highly publicised divorce from actress Amber Heard, which was finalised in August 2016, following a legal battle. After Heard’s allegations of spousal abuse, which Depp has vehemently denied -- his legal troubles continued to spiral.

In January 2017, Depp sued his former business managers, Joel and Robert Mandel of The Management Group (TMG), claiming they mishandled his money and cost him millions.

The pair subsequently countersued and claimed Depp was the one who spent all his own money on extravagances. In their countersuit, TMG claimed that Depp spent $30,000 a month on just wine, and even had a sound engineer on his payroll to feed him lines while shooting his films, so he wouldn’t have to learn them.

Depp claims it isn’t because he doesn’t want to memorise a script. Rather, it’s the engineer’s job to play him specific sounds to allow his to convey emotions with his eyes. “I’ve got bagpipes, a baby crying and bombs going off. It creates a truth. Some of my biggest heroes were in silent film... It had to be behind the eyes. And my feeling is, that if there’s no truth behind the eyes, doesn’t matter what the f**king words are,” he said.

On his wine budget, Depp said, “It’s insulting to say I spent $30,000 on wine. Because it was far more,” he said.
