Johnny Depp sells his art collection for $3.6 million

American actor Johnny Depp sold a collection of his prints to Hollywood and rock icons for 3 million pounds ($3.65 million) through a British exhibition chain on Thursday.

The 59-year-old “Pirates of the Caribbean” star is spending millions of dollars in a fierce legal battle with his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, 36.

Depp wrote on Instagram that the prints would be sold online at Castle Fine Art, which operates a network of British galleries.

The company uploaded a photo of Depp working on a portrait of Bob Dylan.

The gallery noted that the collection, titled Friends & Heroes, is “a testament to those who knew him well and others who inspired him as a person.”

Depp was quoted as saying, “My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and bound them, and no one should be restricted.”

The works also depict the late actress Elizabeth Taylor, actor Al Pacino and Keith Richards, guitarist for the Rolling Stones.

The gallery tweeted that “Johnny Depp broke the Internet” and the collapse of its website due to the lawsuit.

By Thursday afternoon, all publications indicated they were “out of stock.” There were 780 pieces.

Buyers paid £14,950 for a set of four prints or £3,950 each.

In June, Depp was awarded $10 million in a defamation lawsuit against Heard in the United States, while she won $2 million in damages after a counterclaim.

Heard appealed the verdict at the trial, broadcasting on air horrific and intimate details of the former partner’s private life.
