Famous actor Johnny Depp will be selling nine pieces by artist Jean-Michel Basquiat from his personal collection at auction at the end of the month according to Artnet. Though Christie's, who will be handling the sale, claims that it has been working with Depp since the beginning of the year, the timing is interesting, given Depp's recent marital troubles. Celebrity divorces can be quite costly, and Depp is currently accused of domestic violence against estranged wife Amber Heard, so he might need some liquidity for a breakup that's looking pretty ugly.
