Johnny Depp started as a musician and then ventured into acting. Depp’s lifestyle and enormous monthly expenditures drove him to spend a staggering $650 million from 2013 to 2016, according to a lawsuit against his previous business managers. His divorce from Heard, whom he divorced in 2017 for a $7 million payout, and the split from his children’s mother, Vanessa Paradis, have resulted in financial losses for him.

Despite having squandered $650 million over 13 years, mostly because the actor makes approximately $20 million per movie, Johnny Depp’s net worth in 2022 is predicted to be $150 million by Celebrity Net Worth.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Steph Curry’s net worth is estimated to be $160 million. In his first 10 years in the league, Stephen Curry earned $130 million as his salary from the NBA and $150 million in endorsements.
