Johnny Depp Sued By Crew Member For Allegedly Punching Him

Johnny Depp sued by 'City of Lies' crew member who says star physically verbally attacked him

Gregg "Rocky" Brooks, a location manager, filed documents in Los Angeles on Monday claiming the actor attacked him when he tried to enforce permit restrictions while working on crime film City Of Lies. In the movie, Depp plays LAPD Detective Russell Poole, the honest officer who continued to investigate the killing years after its occurrence.

The actor's former business managers revealed a number of Depp's extravagant expenses during the lawsuit, which at one time totaled $2 million a month.

According to the lawsuit, the production was given permission to shoot outside the hotel until 7 P.M. and inside the hotel until 10 P.M. Brooks had to get the shooting permit extended twice to accommodate Depp because the actor wanted to perform a longer cut of a particular scene.

Brooks claimed he was eventually fired from the movie when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident.

When Brooks maintained his composure, the suit says, Depp yelled that he would give Brooks $100,000 to punch him in the face.

Brooks claims Depp then punched him twice in the rib cage. The filmmakers should have known that that Depp was using alcohol and drugs and was a threat to the well-being of others on the set, it says.

Eleventh person rescued from Thai cave on third day of operation
Authorities have said the mission could take up to four days to complete and heavy rain is forecast in the coming days. Medical officials told reporters that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and "seem to be in high spirits".

The crewmember is now suing for unspecified damages.

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.

Depp has not yet responded to the lawsuit. Hesitant to approach Depp after Furman told him to, the vet location manager went to speak instead to the on-set off duty LAPD officer about the matter.

Depp is now embroiled in a legal battle with his ex-managers and is suing his former lawyers, claiming they cheated him out of millions of dollars.

TMZ said its attempts for a comment from Depp's representatives were unsuccessful.
