Depp Crashes Sports Car Into Gate

JOHNNY DEPP is facing a $18,000 (GBP10,000) bill after wrecking his brand-new MERCEDES by reversing into the gates of his French villa.

The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL actor, 41, sped the $28,000 (GBP16,000) sporty motor up to the electric gates outside his home in Plan De La Tour on the Cote D'Azur - before smashing into them as he reversed.

A source says, "We saw Johnny pull up outside his house going at quite a speed.

"He put the car in reverse but can't have paying attention because he drove straight into the side of the gate. He knocked the gates' electric motor straight off the wall and left an almighty dent in the back of the car.

"Judging by the look on his face he got quite a fright. Once he got out of the Mercedes he started cursing himself for being so stupid."
