JOHNNY Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a crew member on upcoming movie City of Lies.
Gregg ‘Rocky’ Brooks has accused the 55-year-old actor of “maliciously and forcefully” punching him twice in his ribs before saying he’d pay the location manager USD100,000 to “punch [him] in the face” in April 2017 and claimed he suffered “physical pain and emotional and psychological injury” as a result.
In his legal documents, the crew member slammed the Pirates of the Caribbean star over his conduct, alleging he “was intentional and malicious and done for the purpose of causing plaintiff to suffer humiliation”.
And he claimed Johnny’s “temper created a hostile, abusive and unsafe work environment”, which eventually resulted in him being assaulted by Johnny during filming of the crime thriller.
Gregg claimed he was eventually fired from the movie when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident. – BANG!
