Johnny is accusing the tabloids of “multiple breaches” of his privacy and “misuses of private information, including the illegal interception of his voicemail messages and other unlawful data gathering.”

In the letter, Johnny reportedly explains that his team has investigated the situation and believes it was hacked between the years 1996 to 2010, resulting in evidence that “clearly points towards repeated and prolonged illegal intrusion,” including information about his children and medical information.

During that time period, The Sun revealed both of his girlfriend’s pregnancies to the public.

“These details were obviously intrusive and sensitive and included the stages of the pregnancies, our client’s movements and plans (showing clear surveillance of him),” the letter reads, according to The Blast.

He is reportedly asking for the company to admit to its information gathering tactics for articles in The Sun.

“Yesterday we sent notice to The Sun of our intention to file suit against them for illegally hacking Johnny Depp. Our Barrister David Sherborne has represented Princess Diana, and also Elton John, Jude Law, Hugh Grant, and Prince Harry in hacking claims against The Sun. The Sun has paid out tens of millions of pounds to settle dozens of illegal hacking claims for one reason – because they did it. This case is a matter of principle for Mr. Depp, not one of money,” his attorney Adam Waldman said in a statement.
