Johnny Depp Unloads Basquiats for $11.5 Million Amid His Public Divorce

Johnny Depp's collection of Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings have been sold on the auction block.

The actor's two Basquiat artworks sold for a combined $11,583,785 at Christie's Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction in London on Wednesday. Basquiat's Pork (1981), a painted door, sold for $6,838,538 to an anonymous phone bidder. The three-panel painting titled Self Portrait (1981) reached $4,745,258 and was snapped up by New York gallery owner Bill Acquavella. The rest of Depp's Basquiat collection is going up for auction on Thursday.

"The beautiful and disturbing music of his paintings, the cacophony of his silence that attacks our senses, will live far beyond our breath," Depp said of the late American artist's work in a release announcing the auction earlier this month.

The auction takes place amid Depp's public separation from Amber Heard, who filed for divorce on May 23, citing irreconcilable differences. The actress is also asking for spousal support from Depp. Heard was granted a restraining order against the actor following her claim that he assaulted her in the past.

Though there have been reports that the divorce could be costly for Depp, divorce attorney Jonathan Wolfe, who is not representing either party, told The Hollywood Reporter that the domestic violence allegations won't impact the financial outcome of their divorce case, though the extra chunk of change probably doesn't hurt.

A divorce is a complex legal matter. But the hardest thing to do in a divorce is to isolate the emotions of the situation from the difficult decisions that need to be made. Sometimes a professional divorce lawyer Orlando FL can be helpful and guide a party to take the right decisions.

The heartbreak and loss of confidence that many of us experience during divorce can all seem like a terrible nightmare, leaving us wondering if we will ever be stable or happy again. You don't have to face it all alone. You will need a professional like the Tampa divorce lawyer and the support of your family and friends. But most of the time, the end of marriage gives the couple a second chance that many others didn't think about it. Embrace these divorce blessings as gifts because your new life is waiting.
