As per reports, Johnny Depp has been sued for allegedly assaulting Gregg Brooks, a former location manager on Jhonny Depp's upcoming film City Of Lies.
In the suit, Gregg Brooks has stated that Depp punched him twice in the ribs. He also accused the actor of verbally assaulting him and saying he'd pay the crew member $100,000 to hit him back.
The suit, which Gregg Brooks lawyer filed, also claims that he had been fired from the film after he refused to sign an NDA that would prevent him from taking actor against the actor. He's seeking unspecified damages.
The alleged incident occurred back in April 2017 when the director Brad Furman asked Gregg Brooks to tell Johnny Depp that the shooting day would be ending after the next scene since it wasn't working out.
Brooks claimed that Depp reacted with a string of curse words. Page Six reports that Brooks then sought help from a police officer but that Depp struck him before that could happen. He then allegedly said, "I'll give you $100,000 to punch me right now."
Rolling Stone reached out to a representative for Johnny Depp for comment on the suit but did not hear back by the time of publication.
In addition to this suit, Page Six reports that Depp is also facing a lawsuit from two former bodyguards who claim that the actor allegedly didn't pay them properly and that he put them in toxic situations. Variety reports that Depp is also embroiled in another lawsuit where he's suing his former business managers for $25 million for gross misconduct.
Johnny Depp's ex-wife, Amber Heard, accused him of battering her. When the divorce was final, the former couple issued a joint statement. "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love," read the statement.
According to a leading publication in the US, neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.
In City Of Lies, Depp portrays LAPD detective Russell Poole, who sought the Notorious B.I.G.'s killer. The film also stars Forest Whitaker as a journalist who is also on the hunt for the murderer.
City Of Lies is set to open September 07, 2019.
