Is this one of the lies to authorities we've been hearing so much about with Johnny Depp???

Legal documents obtained by People allege that the former managers who worked with Depp — The Management Group (TMG) — apparently confirm that the actor himself was "fully aware" that he was illegally bringing his dogs into Australia two years ago.

You'll remember it was a massive controversy at the time, how Johnny was facing dog smuggling charges after failing to follow quarantine protocols in the country.

And while Johnny still maintains that he loves Australia despite the whole controversy, it increasingly sounds like he may have known what was going on — and that what he was doing was illegal — the entire time.

Part of the legal documents from TMG read (below):

These are SHOCKING allegations!

According to a new lawsuit, an anonymous woman from California is suing a "confidential male defendant" for exposing her to HIV. While Charlie Sheen's name is not mentioned, "Jane Doe" says the defendant announced he was HIV positive on national TV on November 17, 2015 — the same day the Two and a Half Men star revealed the news to TODAY.

When the actor told the unidentified woman about his health, he allegedly told her to take two pills to avoid getting ill. Apparently, he also told her not to believe "the convenient rumors of the medical community" and that she doesn't "need to be on all that f*cking sh*t."

The 51-year-old thespian also allegedly told the Russian woman the "Apocalypse" had "cleansed" her soul, and she would be fine.

In a shocking twist of events, the reported victim says Sheen frequently used the n-word and once called himself "the dumbest f*cking n***** in the room."

When speaking of other women who have accused him of exposing them to HIV, he reportedly called them "assholes, f*cking n******."

We are absolutely speechless…

Kesha's Mother Retracts Claims That Dr. Luke 'Date Raped' & 'Physically And Mentally' Abused Her Daughter

One less lawsuit for everyone involved…

On Friday, Dr. Luke dropped his 2014 defamation suit against Kesha's mother Pebe Sebert after she withdrew her statement that the music producer "date raped Kesha when she was 18," and that he abused her "both physically and mentally."

The songwriter — whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald — accused the singer's mother of "publishing false and shocking accusations" as a way of getting her daughter out of her recording contract.

Ryan Seacrest's American Idol Contract Negotiations Hit A Snag Over THIS Little Request!

Ryan hasn't signed his 'Idol' contract

Ryan Seacrest's contract for the American Idol reboot isn't a done deal yet!

As we previously reported, the TV personality has been offered somewhere between $10 and $15 million to once again host the celebrated singing competition. While new judge Katy Perry is making significantly more than the 42-year-old, *cough*$25 million*cough*, the industry vet isn't upset about his paycheck.

Reportedly, negotiations for Ryan's contract have reached a standstill over the fact that Seacrest wants an executive producer credit in addition to his host title. It's said Fremantle Media and Core Media are hesitant to hand over that title to Ryan and have been stuck in a stalemate over the issue for the last week. Yikes!

So far, it's unclear if Seacrest is trying to snag more day-to-day responsibilities. Although, we doubt that's the case as Ryan is already spread pretty thin thanks to his Live! gig, radio show, production company, etc.

Nonetheless, as the producers are still scrambling to lock in another judge (potentially Lionel Richie), we're sure they'll cave and give Ryan what he's asking for. We mean, it's hard to imagine Idol WITHOUT Seacrest!

Bill Cosby Juror Thinks Andrea Constand Was Asking For It

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSexBill Cosby

She was asking for it... this according to one juror.

In the days following a mistrial in the case of Bill Cosby's alleged sexual assault Andrea Constand, jurors from the court room are slowly starting to break their silence.

Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer on the condition of anonymity, one male juror essentially went on to say Andrea was asking for it because of the way she was dressed on one occasion:

"Let's face it: She went up to his house with a bare midriff and incense and bath salts. What the heck?"

And added "she was well-coached" on the witness stand.

More like WTF, dude! No matter how someone is dressed, it does not mean you can take advantage of them nor are they asking to be sexually assaulted then or anytime down the road!

In fact, he believes Andrea should have been "dressed properly and left the incense in the store," if she wanted to show up to the comedian's home.
