In the latest case of "Really, dude? What was it worth it?", professional eccentric billionaire Johnny Depp could face up to 10 years in prison or huge fines for bringing his dogs into Australia illegally, according to the New York Daily News.
Depp is in serious doo-doo for bringing his two Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, into Australia on his private jet. Because his dogs didn't have to go through customs (a la Kanye West), Depp broke quarantine laws in Australia—and he's since been found out.
But how, exactly, was he found out? The Daily News reports that Depp brought Pistol and Boo to the puppy salon (of course he did), and the salon's owners posted about the visit on Facebook. Government officials saw it, and the rest is history.
Even though Depp already sent his dogs back home (or risk them being put to sleep in Australia), an Australian senate committee confirmed yesterday that Depp could face a fine for $265,000 USD, or up to 10 years in prison. Which is admittedly exactly the kind of plot twist you would expect in a movie starring Johnny Depp as an eccentric billionaire. Life imitates art imitates life, I guess.
