Johnny Depp 'punched crew member in drunken tirade'

Johnny Depp is reportedly being sued for attacking a crew member

Johnny Depp is reportedly being sued for attacking a crew member

The suit seeks unspecified damages. 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".

Depp's bodyguards then removed the actor from the set, it is said.

The 14-page filing alleges the altercation, which happened in April previous year, began when Brooks attempted to enforce curfew restrictions.

According to Brooks, the production had a permit to shoot until 7pm outside the hotel, and until 10pm. inside. However, at 11pm the permit official told them that they needed to stop filming.

The lawsuit says Furman forced Brooks to go beyond his duties and tell Depp himself that shooting had to end.

Depp, who used to be married to Amber Heard, continued berating him: "You have no right to tell me what to do!"

Depp is also now facing a lawsuit from two former bodyguards, Eugene Arreola and Miguel Sanchez, who allege that, in their assignment protecting Depp between 2016 and 2018, they "found themselves in situations that required more than what a bodyguard would be expected to do". And it's not just for the alleged assault but wrongful termination and retailation as well.

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

"City of Lies", which was called "Labyrinth" during production, stars Depp as former LAPD detective Russell Poole and tells the story of the police investigation of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls' murders.

Depp is now embroiled in a legal battle with his ex-managers and is suing his former lawyers, claiming they cheated him out of millions of dollars.

However, the managers of Mr. Depp state Johnny merely spent his money irresponsibly.

The actor also divorced Amber Heard in January past year after months of wrangling and allegations of domestic abuse.
