iving in Johnny Depp's mansion sounds pretty fabulous, doesn't it? We're not the only ones who think so, either—a group of seven people have taken up residence in a mansion that has been linked to the actor, and though police were called to the scene to try and kick the squatters out, no arrests have been made.
Anyone else feel like looking up squatter's rights laws right about now?
They've been staying in a 10-bedroom house, one which Johnny Depp has expressed interest in purchasing—the house is currently still being built and will have 17 bathrooms along with a swimming pool and a movie theater.
Officers left the scene without making any arrests after the group of squatters pinned up a sheet of paper reading "Legal Warning" that stated their right to stay.
One of the occupants, Ian Randall, 38, said, "The police came but said there was nothing they could do because it was a civil manner."
