Actor Johnny Depp accused of punching crew member on set

Actor Johnny Depp accused of punching crew member on 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 previous year when things got ugly during a shoot at the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Brooks said he was asked to get the permit extended to accommodate Depp, who wanted to direct a longer version of the scene with two friends. Brooks filed a lawsuit against the actor on July 9, Variety reports. The film's director, Furham, allegedly replied: "Why don't you tell that to Johnny Depp?".

Gregg "Rocky" Brooks, who served as location manager for Depp's film "City of Lies", said the alleged attack came as he was seeking protection from an LAPD officer against Depp. Before the officer could arrive on the scene, Brooks alleges that Depp punched him in the midsection then screamed, "I'll give you $100K to punch me in the face right now".

The papers also state the actor "reeked of alcohol" and took drugs on set.

Brooks states that he was then fired from the movie three days later when he refused to sign a waiver stating he wouldn't sue the production over the incident.

Page Six previously reported that Depp also told Brooks, "I'll give you $100,000 to punch me right now!" in return for his jabs.

Matthews would usually stay at home and only venture outside to walk the dog, his mother, Temeka Matthews, told WGNO-TV. A big fan of the Boston Celtics and Kyrie Irving , he was dressed in an Irving jersey with the Celtics on a TV screen.

Brooks is suing for assault and battery, infliction of emotional distress and negligence, among other things.

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

City Of Lies explores the Los Angeles Police Department's investigation into the 1997 murder of rapper Biggie Smalls and is due to be released in September. With it has come a series of sometimes-ugly legal fights including a long court battle with his former money managers over lost millions and a bitter divorce from wife Amber Heard.

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