Working for Johnny Depp may not be as glam as it sounds. Two of the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s former bodyguards are suing him for unpaid wages and overtime, Page Six reports.
They also claim they were “were forced to protect [Depp] from himself” because of his unsafe behavior.
- This suit is the latest in a string of legal battles for Depp, the most prominent of which is a $25 million fraud lawsuit with his former managers, who claim he spends beyond his means.
- Former LAPD detective Eugene Arreola and Miguel Sanchez also claim they were used as chauffeurs and nannies by Depp’s family and were exposed to “illegal substances” during their time with Depp, according to Page Six.
- In court papers, they allege: “In early 2016 Plaintiffs began to notice a stark change in Depp and the atmosphere on his Hollywood Hills compound. Depp began making sudden and drastic changes to his staff and management team, causing a significant financial crunch for everyone surrounding Depp, except for Depp himself,” but they accepted the “in-house” jobs because “Plaintiffs were loyal to Depp and his family and understanding of the financial hurricane Depp was in.”
- They are seeking unpaid overtime, wages, meal and rest break compensation, penalties and damages, as well as attorney fees.
