Johnny Depp Sued For Attacking Crew Member on Biggie Smalls Movie Set

Gregg Brooks, once a location manager for the City Of Lies, is suing Mr. Johnny Depp who allegedly punched him in the face and berated him while on set in 2017.

In the film, which had previously been referred to as "LAbyrinth", 55-year-old Depp portrays LAPD Detective Russell Poole, who investigated the slaying of rapper Biggie Smalls. That conversation was seemingly cut short when the apparently booze on the breath Pirates of the Caribbean star supposedly start screaming obscenities at Brooks and proceeded to strike him "twice in the lower left side of his rib cage and causing pain".

Brooks claims that after Depp allegedly assaulted him, the actor yelled, "I will give you one hundred thousand dollars to punch me in the face right now!"

Johnny was reportedly working with two of his friends on the scene in downtown Los Angeles when Rocky approached Johnny to tell him he was on a time crunch.

According to TMZ, Depp screamed at him, saying, "Who the f- are you?"

According to the lawsuit, Brooks claims he was asked to write and sign a declaration stating that he would not sue the production. Brooks says he was able to get the permit extended twice, but that at 11 p.m. the permit official said they would have to wrap it up.

Rocky claims Depp continued his tirade and his bodyguards then removed him from the area.

He is seeking unspecified damages, and Johnny Depp's rep has so far remained silent.

Brooks said he was sacked from the production three days later, when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident. When Brooks tried to explain to Depp that his job as location manager is to make sure the film's production adheres to city permits, Depp reportedly fired back, "I don't give a fuck who you are and you can't tell me what to do".

The lawsuit is just the latest setback for Depp, whose financial woes have played out in the media amid multiple court cases.

"City of Lies" is due to be released on September 7.
