Did Depp Buy a Dump?

1/6/2008 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny DeppTMZ told you back in July that Johnny Depp bought a swanky downtown loft for a cool $2 mil -- but it's six months later -- and Jack Sparrow still hasn't moved in! What gives, matey?

According to Hot Property, Depp's new penthouse in downtown L.A.'s Eastern Columbia building is still vacant. In fact, the building hasn't even sold out yet -- there are still half a dozen lofts on the penthouse level available, ranging from 600K to $2.2 mil. Chump change!

But Depp isn't the only star in the Art Deco landmark -- comedian Ant and "Real Housewives of Orange County" hottie Slade Smiley also call the building home. On second thought, Depp is the only star in the building.

Funny how he is always critizing the U,S, then takes his kids to France to be raised and now he buys a loft in downtown L.A.? So I guess the U.S. is not so bad, huh, Captain Jack Sparrow......

if hes critizing the U.S. during the bush administration then he may have a point!! owning real estate around the world including down town L.A. is not a big deal!!!

Love Johnny Depp, always gracious to fans. As for Slade (whoever the hell that is) and every other reality "star" on the planet, can we please stop paying attention to these nobodys? Does anyone else remember a time when a person needed some sort of obvious talent to be considered a celebrity?

The Eastern in Downtown LA is on of, if not the most beautiful Art Deco building in all of the area. The trouble is that it is located on one of the most questionable streets in Downtown, although very up and coming.

It would be very smart for Depp to have purchased his place 6 months ago and I am positive that he is just waiting for the renovation of the rest of the area before he does or moves anything.

Is TMZ just rehashing LA Times Stories? Check out Todays LA Times Real Estate Section. I guess if Britney isn't imploding then TMZ is at a loss for stories. Perhaps some other celebrity will get drunk or have an accident so TMZ can have something to report.

God bless President Bush! He stands by his convictions and does what he believes is right, no matter who else agrees or disagrees with him. That is the mark of a true leader... something you idiots on the left know nothing about. I only wish you, on the left were half as angry at Al Qaeda as you are at him. They are the ones who want you dead, in case you forgot... and it certainly looks like you did!

I say we round-up all the leftist morons in Hollyweird and ship them ALL to France. Good Riddance to the lot of them!!!!
