Any of us could live on $7,000,000, but not a Hollywood gold-digger like her. She's going to go through that cash like shit through a goose.

[–]rossiFan 46 points47 points  (4 children)

I happen to know that the ex-wife of Luke Perry spent her settlement like she was mad at it. She's broke now.

[–]maxbrooksmacbook 2 points3 points  (1 child)

A lot of women go through their huge settlements like it'll never end. There was a story a few years back on huffington post of all places

[–]joeyjojosharknado 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you didn't earn the money/resources yourself then you don't respect it or understand it's true value. It's why 44% of lottery winners were broke within five years.

Gold diggers are no different.

[–]Planner_Hammish 106 points107 points  (63 children)

Seven million invested at 5% is $350k/year before taxes & fees & reinvesting some to account for inflation. Plenty more than most people make. Easily puts her into the 1% and she doesn't need to work. But she deserves $5000 designer handbags every season, with a new outfit to match!

[–]trpthroway123 70 points71 points  (56 children)

$5,000 handbags are for the wannabes.

She's the type to have the stuff that normal people can't even buy.

I bet you a testicle she has a Birkin bag worth more than my car sitting in her closet.

[–][deleted] 35 points36 points  (29 children)

[–]RedDeadlift 38 points39 points  (27 children)

WTF? That bag looks like it would be $10 at Target.

[–]Digital_Yar 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Ten years ago Dolce & Gabbana, very famous couple of Italian stylists, got challenged by a TV show to tell the counterfeits from real D&G. They accepted and failed miserably. Guessed right 50%of the times. Even the stylists themself couldn't tell a 500€ jeans from its 10€ copies

[–]TRPKid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And this is why I buy fake stuff.

I ain't spending 1000$ plus on a pair of yeezys when I can get them for 60$ and they're exactly the same, most likely made in the same sweatshop factory by the same exact kids in China.

[–]Polaris382 18 points19 points  (17 children)

Yeah...one of the things I dont get is its also so easy to find legit counterfeit stuff that most people will have no idea. ie- A high quality fake Rolex for $100-150? No problem if you know where to look.

So why the hell pay countless thousands on a real thing, unless you plan on reselling it or some shit? It blows my mind. Especially when you get into things like super expensive clothing that doesnt look special at all.

[–]Aypse 27 points28 points  (9 children)

What will really blow your mind is man made diamonds. You can buy a 5 CT monster diamond of perfect clarity for about $1000. Try to get a natural diamond of a lower clarity and you are going to have to sign over your soul. Diamonds should be absolute trash but women just eat the marketing right up.

[–]tyrryt 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Women don't want a piece of carbon.

They want a public symbol of wealth; and they want evidence of commitment and domination over a man to the point that he wasted his time and wealth for a useless ornament in exchange for her company.

    [–]Aypse 18 points19 points  (4 children)

    Diamond nexus is the one I am familiar with. You have the option to pay a bit more and get it certified and appraised ss well. The crazy bastards are actually adding flaws back into their diamonds purposely to make them more realistic. And yet women are taught that these are somehow not as good and a "real" diamond.

    [–]growingstronk 4 points5 points  (3 children)

    Where would one go for legit counterfeit stuff?

    Would you mind giving me a starting point at least.

      Around the circles she moves in, people will know what it is and that's what it's all about.

      [–]Planner_Hammish 17 points18 points  (22 children)

      haha, you're probably right. I saw another post saying she spends ~$45k/mo on stuff, including $2k for groceries. Man, I don't even think I could spend $70/day on food and not waste it. I mean, ya maybe if I ate ahi tuna steaks for every meal, or some endangered species...

      For me, I don't think I could ever spend $5000 on an accessory - that's already outrageous! My ex spent $500 on a "luxury" handbag that was her daily carry for all of her school etc. stuff for three years. So in that case, it was about function & build quality.

      [–]Joseph_the_Carpenter 22 points23 points  (6 children)

      "Groceries" in this case means meals at (expensive) restaurants.

      [–]SocialJusticeWhiner 10 points11 points  (1 child)

      $2k won't get you through the month while regularly eating at fancy restaurants.

      [–]Planner_Hammish 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      nope, that was counted different as another $2000 for restaurants.

      There was a Dilbert comic with Dogbert and Dilbert ordering dinner on the company. One says "I'll have the Endangered Species Kabob." The other says "I'll have the Bigfoot steak seared over Moon rocks."

      [–]omnicidial 4 points5 points  (3 children)

      I cooked dinner for 6 people for about 12 dollars earlier. I don't think we spend 20 dollars a day per person ever.

      [–]infiniteslinky 2 points3 points  (5 children)

      Dude, have you ever had an ahi tuna steak though? Maybe some poki.. omg...

      [–]Planner_Hammish 2 points3 points  (4 children)

      I have. Definitely delicious. Definitely can't afford to have it everyday. Or hell, even once a year!

      [–]Aypse 7 points8 points  (3 children)

      8 steaks for $15 at Sams club and its good stuff. I crank the grill to max, rub a little oil on it, and sear it for 30 seconds each side on the grill. Dip in wasabi and soy sauce... Delicious, healthy, and very affordable.

      [–]Planner_Hammish 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      Whut? That is so cheap I doubt it's real. Last time I saw some in the store it was $60/100g

      [–]Aypse 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      [–]zikol88 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Oh man, that emerald cut, 5 carat ahi tuna! So beautiful! It's brilliant color and perfect clarity is absolutely worth the price. Especially when sam's club sells it so cheap.

      [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (3 children)

      My ex spent $500 on a "luxury" handbag that was her daily carry for all of her school etc. stuff for three years. So in that case, it was about function & build quality.

      Can confirm. If my wife doesn't spend at least $400 on a purse it falls apart in six months. If she buys something decent she can get a few years out of it.

      [–]luckinator 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      What's your car doing sitting in her closet? Compact, right?

        That's about $9,000 for every day they were married.

        The per sex act total would be even more laughable.

        [–][deleted] 34 points35 points  (2 children)

        $9,000 a day? Tell me why rich people even consider marriage these days. He could have spent a fraction of that on hookers, who wouldn't bring the domestic violence baggage that Amber Heard did.

        I would rather take $7 million in hundred dollar bills and set it on fire, than give it to a woman who accused me of domestic violence.

        [–]1beerthroway 19 points20 points  (0 children)

        He's Johnny Depp. He could get any woman on the planet. Wouldn't even need to pay them.

        [–]Sementeries 23 points24 points  (0 children)

        She even filmed him. There's a video of her triflin' ass acting all calm and what not.

        I guarantee she pissed him off and then once she saw she is getting to him, she started to turn on the camera in her phone.

        [–][deleted] 39 points40 points  (0 children)

        Why do rich men get married?

        Rich men can be hopeless romantics too. Throw in a little social pressure. Historically, for Hollywood males in the closet, marrying a woman was a good front. Not that Johnny Depp is gay, or that there'd be anything wrong with that, but in general there was a bit of beard-ing going on.

        If you marry, at least get a damned pre-nup

        Feminazi judges will hamster away a pre-nup on behalf of the woman.

        Even Johnny Depp can be tricked into the lies of "love"

        Johnny Depp probably doesn't actually believes the statement. It's just PR.

        As much as $7 million is, paying a lump sum upfront is still better than paying alimony. That being said, we need alimony reform.

        [–]50pluspiller 26 points27 points  (4 children)

        Lay bets that Johnny gets married within 2 years???

        [–]Conceited-Monkey 27 points28 points  (3 children)

        Depp was never particularly "Alpha". He was a successful actor, dated in the Hollywood pool, then was married for a number of years. He was a typical married guy, went through his mid life crisis, got divorced and then ended up with Heard, who took the money and ran. About the only person that cannot have seen how that would turn out would be him. He has had more than a few drinking issues, and is a bit odd. He has a pile of money, gets lots of roles offered, and thus can do what he wants.

        Surprised no one has mentioned this before. Where I live (Coastal Orange County) guys like him and the woman he married are a dime-a-fucking-dozen. And I've seen the shit where the cunt leaves him once she gets bored or realizes that he has no interest in having kids with her because he's already got his own.

        Poor bastard, he never fucking saw it coming

        [–][deleted] 172 points173 points  (80 children)

        $7 million is a raping to Johnny Depp? Sounds like chump change to me.

        I just googled it, he is estimated to be worth $400 million. So she has raped him to the tune of 1.75% of his life earnings. Could she not have done better than that?

        [–]The1WhoCsAll 140 points141 points  (44 children)

        She tried, but the rumors of domestic violence she started began backfiring. Now Elon Musk is sniffing around her, so shes getting ready for a billionaire payday. Depp is small time by comparison

        [–]ransay3277 109 points110 points  (36 children)

        Your right. She wants Musk to think she's not a gold digger. But if he is stupid enough to fall for it, fuck him. He deserves it. Never give a sucker an even break.

        [–]The1WhoCsAll 57 points58 points  (33 children)

              Well they haven't spend a large portion of their time reading stories that support the ideology of AWALT and other theories you hear here. The marriage is probably a background thing for them.

              [–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (2 children)

              Musk types arent really 'players'. They're rich geeks. Look at the dorks that have accumulated wealth almost overnight in Silicon Valley. It's not like they were players or business tycoons prior to garnering this money, just dorks that had a skill that managed to translate to real dollars.

              I'd be willing to bet that a lot of Silicon Valley types were virgins before they got that money. And i'd go even further and assert a lot of them still are! Being rich doesn't inherently turn you into a boss

                Men can be in love with multiple women so, yeah, not likely going to stop him.

                [–]allnamesfckintaken 12 points13 points  (0 children)

                the thing about elon is he's really smart and the women he married have never been gold diggers. read his biography by ashlee vance. his first wife was a cock carousel rider but he pursued her like everything else and finally wore her down in the end. she basically gave him 5 boys and he dumped her when she's old. he's the one that initiated the divorce and often said that he was dissatisfied with her. at first i thought the way she reacted after the divorce with airing all their dirty laundry and shit was bad but then i found out the truth about it. she's kind of a victim in this. with his second wife, i'm sure he had some kind of prenup too. he's the kind of guy who thinks 10 steps ahead of everyone. love for him is really more about satisfying carnal needs like eating. i'm sure he wish he didnt need female companionship.

                elon is my hero and the only person i look up to but the truth is the truth. as with all great ceos, they usually have a sociopathic personality otherwise they couldn't cope with the stress that comes with so many decisions and having to recover from so many failures. you guys dont have to worry about elon being tricked by a woman. to quote him "how much time does a woman need, 10 hours a week?"

                [–]jpowell180 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                I hope Musk keeps a level head, get a pre-nup at least; we don't want that woman derailing mankind's best hope of affordable access to orbit....no woman is worth that.....

                That is a good point. A nasty divorce case can scare off potential suitors. She stands to gain more by cutting her losses and tying the knot with someone else.

                She looks good, but she's fucking 30! In 5-10 years she'll hit the wall just like everyone else. Why the hell doesn't Elon go for someone 19-20?!

                  It was $8 million last week. However, she just couldn't help herself by leaking that video in violation of the pending agreement. These women. They have been told their whole lives how wonderful they are and can do no wrong. When their fate is finally in their hands, they always fuck it up.

                  Look at what happened to that idiot that tried to do with Mel Gibson.

                  Regardless of the percentage of his worth, she gets $7 million for simply divorcing the guy. That's a financial rape no matter how you view it.

                  Well, having read a little about it seems like in principle she tried to rape him much harder

                    I would bet that there are a number of clauses around the settlement restraining her from ever uttering a foul word about Johnny again.

                    In my book, he's conducted himself in an exemplary way through this ordeal. A lesser man would have said too much and ended up being screwed through court.

                    He go ex-wives and other women to attest that he was never violent, he got the police to tell the news that they didn't see any evidence of physical harm on Amber.

                    He saw that Amber was trying to use the media against him to get a good settlement in court, and Johnny counteracted by presenting all the evidence to the news.

                    "Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity." I'd be surprised to see any more than $100,000 dished out to charity, as she attempts to put out the bullshit image that she's not just another gold-digger.

                    I'd be shocked if she donated a cent to charity. After all, it's not like the statement saying she "will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to charity" is legally binding. I'd bet that language was put in the statement by her PR people who are doing damage control from people thinking she's a gold-digging cunt. If you really were going to donate all that money to charity, why not stipulate in your divorce settlement that Depp pay that money to charity directly rather than the money going through your greedy little hands first?

                    I had never heard of Amber Heard before her domestic violence allegations against Depp, but I'm so disgusted by her and women like her that I will make a point to avoid seeing any movie or TV show Heard is in.

                    In fact, Heard told the court that she spends around $43,700 per month. That figure includes averages of $10,000 a month for rent, $3,000 for health care, $2,000 for groceries, $2,000 for dining out, $2,000 for clothing, $10,000 for entertainment and vacations, and $10,000 a month combined for pet supplies and payments for her public relations rep, agent and attorney.

                    What the hell is she eating, to even spend $2,000 a month on groceries? Most people aren't even spending $200 a month on groceries

                    It's trivial to spend $2K on groceries, that's $67/day. Just buy expensive shit at expensive stores. You can easily do it without buying black caviar.

                    You can go to freaking Whole Foods and get $35 Emu eggs or a $24 jar of "organic" almond butter.

                        Prenups won't help you anymore. There is really no effective* way to protect your assets in a divorce.

                        *there are illegal ways, like hiding your money outside of the jurisdiction of the United States.

                        Actually, a buddy of mine got divorced in Connecticut and his prenup was...wait for it...completely enforceable. And boy was he fucking happy about that. Not sure it's worth living there because of the high taxes and because a lot of folks there are, apparently, assholes, but if you've got a prenup, you're golden.

                        That's totally absurd for me, as a Brazilian.

                        Here our marriage contracts are 100% upheld in court. Hell, our Civil Code explicit creates three "default marriage agreements", and one of them is full separation of properties.

                        It's weird to see that the US, the biggest country in the world, doesn't have a basic legal institution like (working, court upheld) marriage agreements.

                        [–]Blazedazex55 9 points10 points  (0 children)

                        Prenups are almost always upheld here in the States. This not bring effective belief that floats around here is ridiculous. Ignore it

                        [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (6 children)

                        Many prenups are held to be void ab initio because they violate public policy. There is some use for prenups, but the laws of many states set a minimum that the ex spouse is entitled to receive upon divorce. This is further complicated if children are involved. This doesn't really matter for most people who don't have any significant assets. But, if you have a business and several millions of dollars in assets, then your ex is going to take a piece of that even if she signed a contract saying she wouldn't.

                        [–]felipebarroz 2 points3 points  (3 children)

                        That's the point, I guess. The law here doesn't set a "minimum".

                        In fact, there IS a minimum guaranteed by law, but only when your marriage doesn't explicit determines what agreement the couple is getting into. When the marriage contract is explicit on this matter, the law doesn't guarantee nothing.

                            Private contracts can be voided if they are contrary to public policy. Many states have divorce distribution schemes set up by statute. A prenup cannot interfere with the state law scheme. Prenups are still enforceable to the extent that they would otherwise comply with state law. But, you cannot contract your way around state law.

                            [–]grewapair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                            Not true at all. That's the whole reason for a prenup is to go around the default state law. The reason they aren't enforced is due to fairness: by default the woman is a poor helpless thing and the man is evil. If the woman has an independent lawyer and meets other standards of fairness, a prenup is enforceable, at least in CA.

                            About the most intelligent comment so far.

                            Johnny Depp has an estimated net worth of $400 million.

                            Also the statement states: "will be donating a portion of 'financial proceeds' from the divorce to a charity"

                            So he will get a tax deduction for that component too.

                            Johnny Depp can afford that.

                            I'm not saying law is not biased etc, just he can affords 7 mils for 2 years of good pussy stomping. I bet he's the one laughing more after paying so little.

                            If you could fuck good and divorce for 2% of your total cash, you'd feel like a winner. Period.

                            He's the guy who won it. He just paid her to leave, and some sponsorship expenses too. There are many injustices to feel bad for, this is not one of them.

                            This is not one of these cases i can say "that poor naive guy" in my head tbh.

                            Consider how much you could end up to pay for 2 years of continue escorting by Amber Heard and i'm sure you'll have to call that a deal.

Musk is like the one person who is single-handedly changing the world, yet he doesn't understand to not get married. Like he isn't doing any of his work for money, but once they get married, he will be remembered as the guy who spent billions on pussy. Again, not like a billion dollars means anything to him, but that money could be spent on like medical research or whatever, yet it is going to a fucking slut who probably manages to waste it in no time.

                            Depp was once a cool kid. He turned into some kind of fashion victim, caricature of himself a long time ago. Women just aren't going to respect a guy that has weekly facial peels and tanning sessions.

                            Yeah, it's a lot of money to us. But he wasn't divorce raped. Divorce rape is where half your paycheck for 10 years goes to some woman that didn't do anything beyond put a ring on her finger.

                            JD has $400M ($393M), this is a drop in the bucket to him, about 2% of his net worth.

                            He can afford this, but average guys would stand to lose a lot more in a divorce.

                            Heard will burn through this money in 3-4 years tops, but by then she will have colonized Elon Musk and been taken under his wing...

                            Because she is not giving it away. It is purely damage control. Giving to charity is such a lofty statement that the fact that she says it is enough for people to overlook that she is a gold digger, even though she could in fact actually still keep 95% of the money.

                            Its the same principle as products that give a certain (say 5%) amount of proceeds to save the rainforest. Starbucks did this a while back. People stopped buying as much Starbucks because they were worried about the environmental effects of all of the waste generated from the cups. In response Starbucks donates 5% of profits to rainforest protection. This small amount acts to allay our guilt and allow us to keep consuming as we believe the negative impacts have been anulled. The reality is that the damage (gold-digging) still far outweighs the benefit (charity donation). Its a psychological trick that I find interesting.

This is the man who takes his entire costume with him everywhere to don it for children in hospitals. A very stand up act for sure, but sane? He's a loony tune, whacko, nutjob, whatever you want to call it. So to say "He's an idiot blahblah..." sure, but he's also a whacko and you can't hold whackos to the same standards.

                            Johnny depp was never alpha. He is 5'7 and creepy as fuck... Always has been. He's little and greasy. He is not remotely attractive... And he sure as shit isn't a leader of men. Women just blindly thought so the same way dudes always thought Cameron Diaz was (she never was and definitely isn't now). His music is shit. He hasn't been in a good movie in forever and all of his good movies would have been just as good with any seasoned actor in his place. He is the opposite of the red pill. He is a drugged out drunk mess with no sex appeal and cheese grating personality. He has sex appeal and personality of drunk weird uncle. He brought this on himself. I could not imagine a woman staying remotely attracted or interested in him after seeing the real him... Say what you want about amber heard but she is just like any other girl... Escort to church mouse... If she is into to you, she will do you right... If she isnt, she will do her own thing. I called this along time ago... She is light years above him... He never had what it takes to keep her interested or satisfied (emotionally or sexually)

                            I'll never understand the law. How is this still sanctioned where one has to give up such a large amount of money to someone who you engaged in a relationship with? I get the rational of giving them some compensation (which is still absurd), but goddamn what an archaic notion.

                            If we're roommates I don't owe you anything if you move out.

                            These court proceedings are frightening. I can't see why a man would want to get married.

                            i think at this point, 7 million is very lucky for him. for him, he gets to brush his hands of this whole shit show and move on with his life. he probably has more than 300 million. 7 million for a hollywood life isnt a lot. she's not going to be living it up or anything. a house in the ghetto already cost almost 1 million in california right now.

                            "Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity." I'd be surprised to see any more than $100,000 dished out to charity, as she attempts to put out the bullshit image that she's not just another gold-digger.

                            Nah brah, $100 won't even hit "charity"

                            Johnny's no alpha. He's about as beta as they come. He has money, though. He's already looking for another "NAWALT".

                            Johnny Deep is more like a goofy sidekick. It's hard to see him as an Alpha.

                            "Even Johnny Depp can be tricked into the lies of "love"" If anything, celebrity males have such an easy and positive time with women that they don't ever see the dark side of women until a divorce. A regular guy may get dumped by a girl branch swinging but a celebrity alpha male rarely will since it's so tough to branch swing to someone even more famous.

                            Johnny Depp doesn't look too alpha. He would definitely be left-swiped on Tinder: his success is AFAIK based on celebrity...

                            It amazes me that some bitch slut can cheat on you, initiate a divorce, and be rewarded with a huge sum of cash. The alimony laws are never just, but goddamn, you'd think that circumstances such as this would at least lessen the damages. GUESS NOT!

                            It blows my mind. She could parasitize off him while they were together and reap the benefits of that, but why is she allowed to continue it after they have separated?

                            At least she should have to support herself using her own income. At most the alimony should pay her minimum wage or help with financial obligations such as a mortgage that she took on while they were married.

                            She chose to end their contract (marriage) so the benefits of said contract should end at the same time.

                            It blows my mind that her standard of living (rent, groceries, health care) are upheld and preserved, while his own standard of living (bareback pussy, blowjobs, anal) is left unaddressed

                            Saw him on a rerun of Graham Norton when he was promoting whatever movie she was also in. Another male guest commented on how absolutely gorgeous Amber was/is. He quietly agreed. You could tell he was already sunk.

                            I happened to just see this recently when all the abuse stuff came out. Why didn't he stay with Vanessa? I remember reading Jolie wanted him when she was also in a movie with him, Vanessa was on the set every day. She needed to keep on doing so, for his benefit.

                            Shouldn't have married a bisexual golddigger. He shouldn't have to pay her nothing but he will survive, 7 million is probably not that much for him.

                            Married for 560 days @ 7 million = $12,500 a day to be married to her. NOPE!
