If the legal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp is far from over, financially, the actor should be doing pretty well. Amber Heard, who was found guilty of “defamation” last June, decided to appeal this decision. Johnny Depp for his part also wished to appeal, 24 hours later, to request the cancellation of his three convictions for defamation.
But on the financial side, everything should work for the actor of Pirate of the Caribbean. He will not only receive 8 million dollars from his ex-wife, who has been forced to sell her house to pay off his debts, but he has also just signed a very lucrative contract for a very long period, which will guarantee him stable income over the next few months.
Since 2015, Johnny Depp has been the official face of Dior’s “Sauvage” fragrance. Good news: the actor should return to service for the French luxury brand, according to information revealed by the American magazine TMZ. The actor should continue the adventure for several years, cashing in the passage several million for his good and loyal services.

His new campaign would even be ready to go out! According to TMZ, it is the photographer Greg Williams who would have reconnected with the actor after having attended one of his concerts given in Paris, in the company of Jeff Beck. Financially speaking, this decision is not surprising since Dior would have seen a very strong increase in its online sales since the perfume Sauvage is linked to the image of the famous Pirate.
Following the media coverage of his trial, Johnny Depp had lost many professional opportunities, and had notably been replaced by Mads Mikkelsen in the role of Gellert Grindelwald, in the hit films Fantastic Beasts.
But the more time passes, the less directors boycott Johnny Depp. After a cinematic break due to his many setbacks, he will be showing, in 2023, the film Jeanne du Barry by Maïwenn Le Besco, lending her features to Louis XV.
