Hollywood actor Johnny Depp was hit with a Rs 2.44 crore suit from a law firm that claims he has not paid his bills. The lawsuit was filed against the Pirates of the Caribbean star on Monday.

Depp retained law firm Buckley LLP in 2017 to sue his former entertainment law company, Bloom Hergott LLP, which he accused of pocketing Rs 209 crore in fees without a written agreement, reports variety.com.

Three Buckley attorneys - Fredrick Levin, Michael Rome and Ali Abugheida - worked on the case until this January. Levin successfully defended the case at a summary judgment hearing in August 2018.

Depp is now represented by Adam Waldman and attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP. The case is currently set for trial in September. According to the suit, Buckley has billed the actor Rs 3.7 crore - which represents a 10 per cent discount on the firm's hourly rate.

Depp has only paid Rs 1.30 crore, leaving a balance of Rs 2.4 crore. The suit states that Depp's representatives notified Buckley LLP in January that he was dropping the firm because he was looking to "contract the number of law firms providing services to him and his entities".

Edward White, Depp's representative in the matter, told the firm he had "high regard" for Levin, and that the actor intended to pay the outstanding fees in the first quarter of 2019.

"Plaintiff received further assurances regarding payment from Depp's agents, most recently with promises to pay the amount owed in full by mid-May," the suit states.

Those promises have gone unfulfilled, according to the suit.
