Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a production crew member on the set of City of Lies, RadarOnline.com can report.
According to explosive court documents obtained by Radar, Amber Heard’s ex-husband allegedly screamed and berated a helpless crew member who claimed he was just doing his job back in April 2017.
Gregg “Rocky” Brooks stated in documents filed on July 6 that he was working on the City of Lies set in April 2017 when he was asked to deliver a message to Depp that he had only one more shot at finishing a scene. The crew member alleged in the suit that when he did what he was told, the former Pirates of the Caribbean star screamed, “WHO THE F**K ARE YOU? YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO!”
The crew member then alleged that Depp then “forcefully punched” Brooks in the lower left side of his ribcage, according to the lawsuit.
The actor then offered to pay the crew member $100,000 so he could punch him in the face, court documents stated.
Brooks claimed in the documents that Depp was “drinking alcohol and using drugs throughout the day on set” before bodyguards physically removed him from the scene.
Brooks claimed he was fired the following day after he failed to sign paperwork promising he would not sue the production company.
The plaintiff described Depp's behavior as “willful and malicious.” He claimed he has suffered emotional and physical distress and severe humiliation as a result of the alleged incident, the documents stated.
City of Lies is scheduled to be released later this year. In the film, Depp plays Russell Poole, an LAPD detective who tries solving the murders of rappers Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.
Just last month, the troubled actor stepped out showing off a skeletal frame.
