Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching the location manager of his upcoming movie. The actor is currently filming his new project “City of Lies” and while on set dating back to April 2017, Johnny allegedly punched “Gregg Rocky” Brooks in the lower left side of his rib cage because he told Johnny that production had to end for the day. The time of the incent took place while the crew was filming at the Barclay Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
CNN obtained the lawsuit which states Depp repeatedly screamed and reprimanded Brooks until his bodyguards had to remove him from the incident. Brooks claims Johnny’s “breath reeked of alcohol” and that he’d been drinking and doing drugs on set.
Brooks refused to sign a document promising that he would not sue Johnny, Brook also said he was fired. In the lawsuit, Miriam Segal and director Bard Furman are targeted. Also production companies Good Films and Infinitum Nihil for wrongful termination.
Good Films and Bard Furman were founded by Johnny. Representatives of Johnny has not responded to the claims just yet.
