French Estate Relisted

14 Jul

Why? Why is he doing this now. It will look suspicious.  Most may think he’s recouping a loss from a payout.

However that most likely isn’t the case the article states he felt the original asking price was too low.  Also after seeing all the instagram photos of Raquel and her boyfriend staying at the villa, perhaps he feels it’s full of bad vibes now and wants to unload it.

Just another thing Amber tainted REMEMBER. THE MORE EXPENSES HE HAS (taxes) the less money Amber gets. 50+ million is more than last years listing price of 20+ million. That means higher taxes.  More expenses.

    I don’t know why I think this, Andy but it could just possibly be a rumor. Remember when he listed it before or supposedly listed it for sale and then took it down. I have a weird feeling he never put it up for sale. I haven’t trusted Ambitch’s silence for awhile. It could be some of her press “disciples,” and I am sure she has quite a few, trying to stir up shit. Like when they kept saying JD was selling the Basquiats to make money to pay the bitch off. No way, no how. Gossip Cop already killed a tabloid rumor that sounds so incredibly stupid it’s funny lmao. Apparently some stupid Sun article came out with JD supposedly having plastic surgery and botox on his face to restore his good looks after alcohol ruined them or some shit. It’s pathetic. I forget if it was here or elsewhere, but someone said about his house in Venice, that he doesn’t even OWN a house in Venice. I’m taking this with a grain of salt for the time being. 😉 😀

    I think it is more likely that it is better on the market than off. I believe it will help evade paying local property taxes in France. Owners who do not occupy a property that is for sale do not pay property taxes (which can be sizeable)

      I can see that…but I read the article and sorry, reputable as wsj is? It does NOT sound right. Why would Johnny say the original price he set was too low? It doesn’t sound right, it sounds like he’s thinking only about money. SO not JD, not with the memories of his kiddies there, and the sliding pole or whatever it is, he made for Jack. I don’t know, I know it said he sold the Basquiats through that same person, but you know…someone could be jumping the gun or being fed lies. These people don’t know JD.

      Gut feeling here. I don’t expect it to stay listed, if it is.

        I don’t have to rely on the paper. I, or anyone else can call the real estate agency and simply ask. That simple.

        • katedruana July 14, 2016 at 1:30 pm #

          That’s true, didn’t think of that. I do agree that it’s odd that he’s selling THAT place. Oh well, we’ll see what plays out.

      • Mebutnotme July 14, 2016 at 1:23 pm #

        His accountants will be thinking of his money. The property was thought by Sotherby’s to be overpriced. Now it is with Christies at double the price then there is no way it is going to be sold off. Which I think is the intention. It is a very legal tax dodge and I don’t think Depp has any intention on selling up yet. He has made comment in the past about grudging the amount of tax he is expected to pay on property in France.

        • Andy July 14, 2016 at 1:29 pm #

          For easy math. Let’s assume his taxes were two million when it was valued at 20+ million. Now it’s 50+ million which would be 4 million in taxes. Gosh those EXPENSES. Keep going up. More expenses = less money after all is accounted for.

          • Mebutnotme July 14, 2016 at 1:43 pm #

            With the house being up for sale it means he pays no local taxes which can be up to 25% annually . However if he does sell then the percentage of Capital gains tax is a whopping 34% of the sale price for a non resident. Although as long as he does not let the property out then he could be exempt from these costs or can gift the property to his kids and they will pay no capital gains tax if they sell it.

            I still hold that this is just a way to not pay local taxes on the property, which only appears to be used by family (his brother lives in one, or lived in one of the spacious guests houses on the estate) and friends (Tim Burton is often seen there along with his assistant and his wife).

            I’m a bit confused. If the house is on the market, he doesn’t have to pay taxes, right? So he’s not incurring those expenses. Also, does a settlement take into account the income from the date of marriage to the date of separation or to the date of divorce?

            I honestly think he’s not going to sell it. I remember reading that he wanted to spend time with his grandkids there.

  3. katedruana July 14, 2016 at 1:10 pm #

    i’ll double check the mag source to be totally sure, but it smells funny to me. I don’t see why he’d list that estate for sale…especially that one where his kids grew up. It just doesn’t add up, and like you said, “Why?” We’ll see.

  4. XZY July 14, 2016 at 1:11 pm #

    It could be for a bunch of reasons, he wants to focus more on touring less on movies and is liquidating assets, etc. Doubt it has anything to do with Amber unless she’s spreading the rumors of his selling items. As for looking bad, not sure that he cares and he shouldn’t.

    • katedruana July 14, 2016 at 1:28 pm #

      Yeah I can see him liquidating assets and getting rid of too much shit…but if anything, sell the island he married Scumbitch on, not the French estate. i know he loves that Bahamas island for other reasons and it’s big…and he has beaches named after Hunter and Marlon there. But I don’t know, he married the scum there and I would think he’d want to get rid of that before the French estate where his kids grew up. I’d think sentimental reasons alone might make him want to even spend more time there with the kids. You know, time he didn’t get to spend there before probably because Ambitch was pulling her shit and not wanting him to go to a place where he shared with Vanessa. Big deal, Ambitch is out of his life now, and Vanessa and Johnny are good friends. There’s no reason to sell unless what mebutnotme said is the reason…I can see if property taxes are higher in France if you don’t live there in the place. But hell, Johnny could just move there for a bit. Vanessa can hang out there too and if she finds another guy to be with, they can both live there. it’s a whole village. They can live in one house, Johnny in another. They can spend time with the kids and everything. I don’t sense any awkwardness between Johnny and Vanessa. Unless there’s something we’re not being told. Maybe Vanessa wants it up for sale because they spent so much time there when they were in their relationship. Who knows….

      • Andy July 14, 2016 at 1:32 pm #

        I say taxes. He’s racking up expenses.

        • katedruana July 14, 2016 at 1:35 pm #

          Yeah, taxes makes more sense, you’re right. More sense than anything to do with the divorce, suspicious as it may look to those who still question his integrity. Lol. Yeah…probably just the tax thing. I always wondered if, with all he owns, that property taxes could be an issue for him.

          • katedruana July 14, 2016 at 1:36 pm #

            By “those who still question his integrity” of course, I mean Ambitch supporters wanting to jump on the rumor wagon and pull bullshit. lmao. But we know they would anyway. (rolls eyes) 😛

        He LOVES his island. If it goes up for sale, it’s either a false rumor or he’s ready to leave the planet…

        • katedruana July 14, 2016 at 3:35 pm #

          Lmao no, don’t even joke like that!!!! 😮 😉 😀 Nah, probably if he IS selling it it’s just to get rid of all this shit he owns. Maybe he wants to donate more to charity. And have some time off with kids. I hope for his own sake he gives acting a rest for a nice long time. I don’t care what stupid critics say about him playing music. Whatever makes this human being happy is what matters most. 😀 😉

        Johnny married the Scumbag in Hollywood , at his home..Not the Island….

        • katedruana July 15, 2016 at 6:39 am #

          I know he married Scumber legally at his home on Feb. 3rd, 2015, but then they had a ceremony on the island the weekend of Feb. 8th. That whole ceremony seemed like a joke, lol, I remember reading that guests were supposed to sleep on the yacht because there wasn’t enough room on the island. A big island like that. There was only about 25 ppl at the ceremony.

          It felt full of holes, probably the press. lmao. I did see a so-called video with a hellicopter over the island. I know someone said Lily Rose wasn’t there but I did think I saw her as Bitch’s bridesmaid looking miserable. Jack was supposed to be Johnny’s “best man” or something but he looked like he was wearing some kind of weird hat…not sure. The whole thing could have been staged, maybe even plugged in with CG characters. LOL! It would be just like Hollywood. 😛

    The last few years he spent very little time there, his kids also but he has to pay rather high taxes in France (memories don’t pay it). He prefers now his island which gives him total privacy.

    • katedruana July 14, 2016 at 1:33 pm #

      The taxes do make sense all things considered. I agree with XZY, it probably doesn’t have to do with Ambitch.

  6. linda July 14, 2016 at 1:33 pm #

    I’m seeing an incredibly large amount of false stories lately and this is just another one. Sure he may be selling it, but I’m inclined to believe its for tax purposes. He stated he wasn’t ready to give up his U. S. Citizenship when France was urging him to become a citizen there, and keeping the property means he has to pay taxes there and in the U. S.

    • Andy July 14, 2016 at 1:35 pm #

      Right. The more it’s worth the more taxes you pay. The more taxes paid the higher his expenses. The less AH gets in a divorce Appraise that sucker double of last year lmfao!

    • Olivia July 14, 2016 at 1:47 pm #

      In reality, they didn’t spent much time there (generally only holidays before the yacht and island), his kids never attended the school in France. It was kind of myth spread by media and Depp never denied it.

  7. GQ July 14, 2016 at 1:58 pm #

    He bought a house in Monrovia, California right before he went on tour in Europe with HV.

  8. Jo32 July 14, 2016 at 2:06 pm #

    I don’t believe any of this shit.
    (wish i could buy it though lol)

  9. chocolatelover July 14, 2016 at 5:04 pm #

    I think JD has more fighting power than a lot of people (especially AH) thinks he has. I worry sometimes of a settlement happening but I think it is probably a last resort, I get the sense from him that he will show no mercy in this case. Can’t think of any clear examples right now but he has shown in his career that he knows how to defend himself, his kids and what he believes in.

    • PennyForYourThought July 14, 2016 at 7:43 pm #

      Yeah I agree, he’s very protective of his family and loved ones, like Winona Ryder said.

      I agree.

      I think his tattoo “Silence Exile Cunning” states his philosophy and reflects exactly how he will handle this horrific attack on his character, his career, his family, and himself. There is one thing I know is that underneath Johnny’s quirky rebellious hillbilly hobo persona, he is a true Southern gentleman. The ultimate insult to a Southern gentleman is to show gross disrespect for his mother, especially only hours after her death. No way in hell Johnny is not going to take that offense lightly – NO WAY NO HOW. Then you add to that he trusted her in the company of his children…yeah, he is going to take this entire situation VERY seriously. He also takes his friendships very seriously, so her lawsuit against Doug Stanhope for him being honest and loyal to Johnny is another BIG strike against Scumber. He once said if anyone hurt his family or friends or anyone he loves he would eat them…so…uh…yeah he takes this all VERY SERIOUSLY and will fight back in every legal way possible.

        Well, he’s got the right partner in Laura Wasser. I knew of her reputation but never knew what she looked like or saw her in action. I was just flipping thru an episode of Chelsea on Netflix. LW was on for a brief segment. The minute I saw her & she opened her mouth I was scared, then Chelsea said something stupid & she just took her down. Unfortunately Chelsea interrupted so the segment was brief, but let’s just say, I wouldn’t want to be AH.

      • katedruana July 15, 2016 at 9:16 am #

        Very, very good points, usnpup. I didn’t think about the Silence Exile Coming tattoo, but he is always making sure that is visible unless he’s wearing long sleeves. You’re right…never underestimate the silent ones! As for Wasser, I would love to see her in action myself!!! 😀

        • aquagirl10009 July 15, 2016 at 9:58 am #

          If you have Netflix, it’s on the episode with Nancy Pelosi, about 17 minutes from the end.

  10. Nobody July 14, 2016 at 10:29 pm #

    Accounting, taxes sound good. Also, given the terrorism attack today in nearby Nice, maybe he’s trying to sell it before things get worse there. Christie’s did well by him with the art.

  11. swansta July 15, 2016 at 1:48 am #

    He’s also selling his Italian mansion. I think he’s preparing for a new life.

  12. swansta July 15, 2016 at 3:42 am #

    More expenses today doesn’t mean less money for Amber. She gets half of whats left from their earnings in those 15 months – from the day they married to the day they agreed is the day of separation.
