Somebody might need some MONEY.

Did you know Johnny Depp has been secretly collecting Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings for the last 25 years? Yeah, me either. But when they call art an investment, this is what it means.

The actor has decided to auction off his nine pieces at Christie’s in London later this month, a press release from the auction house revealed on Thursday, June 9. Most of the paintings and drawings are from the early 1980s and they are describing them very prettily to get more of that sweet, sweet cash:

“Nothing can replace the warmth and immediacy of Basquiat’s poetry, or the absolute questions and truths that he delivered,” Depp says of the artist’s work in the press release. “The beautiful and disturbing music of his paintings, the cacophony of his silence that attacks our senses, will live far beyond our breath.”

Maybe the Alice Through the Looking Glass actor know’s a chunk of those paintings will go to, Amber Heard, or maybe it has nothing to do with it.  The actor is worth an estimated $400 million, so another 25 million doesn’t seem like that big a deal? Or does it? I can’t wait to know how this settlement goes down.
