Johnny Depp is reportedly building a series of tunnels to connect five of his homes

You would think Johnny Depp would want to improve his image after he was accused of domestic abuse by his ex-wife Amber Heard.

But alas, ever since those allegations, he’s sounding more and more like a bad movie villain. A lawsuit filed earlier this month from his ex-managers let slip that Depp pays huge sums of money for crazy things, including $3 million to shoot Hunter S. Thompson’s ashes out of a cannon and $300,000 a month on wine. And now, it’s come out that Depp is channeling his inner El Chapo, wanting to build a series of underground tunnels to connect five homes he owns in a cul-de-sac in Hollywood Hills.

“He’s been buying them up over the years,” an “insider” told US Weekly about the homes in the cul-de-sac. “He wanted to build a gate to stop the tour buses from coming up there.”

Like any movie villain, there is something preventing Depp from his goal of underground domination. Namely, the owner of the last home in the cul-de-sac, who refuses to sell even though “Johnny has offered him everything.”

Perhaps Depp should save his money for more important things. Like his legal bills. [Us Weekly]
