NEW YORK (AP) — Transit officials have decided to alter subway station tiles that have a cross-like design similar to that of the Confederate flag.The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is modifying the tiles at the 40th Street entrance to the Times Square subway stop to avoid any confusion about their meaning, MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said in a statement."These are not confederate flags" Ortiz said. The red, white and blue tiles installed decades ago are "based on geometric forms that represent the 'Crossroads of the World,'" he added.The decision comes in the wake of the deadly rally over a Robert E.

- Johnny Depp’s Ex-Managers Claim More Sky-High Spending — Including $7,000 on a Kardashians Couch

The former managers of Johnny Depp have fired the latest salvo in their legal battle with their ex-client, filing an amended cross-complaint alleging even more exorbitant spending by the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor — including $7,000 for a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” couch.Among the newly alleged expenditures listed in the amended cross-complaint: “well over $500,000” in rental fees for the storage facilities where the actor keeps his Hollywood memorabilia; approximately $1 million in expenses for his private Bahamian islands; $17,000 in handbags and luggage from Prada; and $7,000 to “pay for and then store a couch from the set of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ … which was a present for his daughter, Lily-Rose.”The amended cross-complaint also takes issue with Depp’s assertion that TMG made unauthorized loans with his funds, saying that the people they allegedly made the loans to are still in Depp’s camp.Taking a 5 percent commission of the actor’s income, “in some cases regardless of whether Mr. Depp actually received any income himself or not” — a commission that was “exorbitant, excessive, and far outstripped the actual value of services TMG would be performing for Mr. Depp.”The management firm filed a cross-complaint shortly thereafter, saying that they’d warned Depp about his spending and accusing Depp of a number of extravagant expenditures, including spending $75 million on 14 residences throughout the world; dropping more than $18 million to buy and renovate a 150-foot yacht; and spending $30,000 a month on “expensive wine that [Depp] had flown to him around the world for his personal consumption.”
