Johnny Depp Sued for Assault on Movie Set

Johnny Depp Sued for Assault on Movie Set

In the suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Gregg "Rocky" Brooks says that he was working as a location manager on one of Depp's films past year when things got ugly during a shoot at the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Depp, 55, allegedly asked Brooks to extend the permit needed to shoot outside, which he says he did on two occasions.

The lawsuit says Furman forced Brooks to go beyond his duties and tell Depp himself that shooting had to end.

Location manager Gregg "Rocky" Brooks claims the Pirates of the Caribbean star became violent after he informed the actor that he only had one more chance to shoot a scene in Los Angeles in April, 2017. Johnny then allegedly screamed, "I will give you $100,000 to punch me in the face right now". A bodyguard had to remove him from the area when he refused to stop the confrontation, with Brooks explained that his breath stank of alcohol during the ordeal. "You have no right!'" a source told Page Six following the incident, adding that Brooks told Depp "'I'm just doing my job'".

The lawsuit states that a week later, Brooks returned to the production office but was sacked from the film when he refused to sign a declaration stating that he would not sue the production company, Good Film Productions.

According to TMZ, Depp screamed at him, saying, "Who the f- are you?"

The altercation occurred on the set of "City of Lies", a film based around the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

The filing is seeking unspecified damages from Depp, Furman, producer Miriam Segal and the production company. The actor is now suing his former managers for $25 million for mishandling his finances, and he was sued in May by a pair of former security guards over unpaid wages and a "toxic" work environment.

A rep for Depp did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
