Johnny Depp accused of punching crew member on LA film set

The actor is being sued by a crew member following an alleged altercation on the set of his latest film, City of Lies, in which Depp plays a former LAPD detective investigating the murders of The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.

Depp allegedly punched Brooks twice in the left rib cage while he was screaming at him. That said, Brooks is now seeking monetary damages from the movie star, though the exact amount remains unspecified at this time.

A recent profile in Rolling Stone magazine, in which Depp wished to expose "the truth" about his current predicament, instead painted a picture of an isolated, tragic figure, struggling with money and personal issues.

The 14-page filing alleges the altercation, which happened in April past year, began when Brooks attempted to enforce curfew restrictions. However, at 11pm the permit official told them that they needed to stop filming. "When PLAINTIFF did not react to DEPP's satisfaction after being punched, DEPP yelled "I WILL GIVE YOU ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS TO PUNCH ME IN THE FACE RIGHT NOW!"

However, when things weren't going to plan, this is when Brooks had to inform Depp, who reportedly "reeked of alcohol", that he only had one more shot.

He says Depp then punched him twice, before being removed from the scene by his bodyguard. Mr Brooks's allegations include assault and wrongful termination.

Brooks claimed he was eventually fired from the movie when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident.

Maybe Johnny Depp was just feeling the Brooklyn spirit and wilded out by accident.

The actor is now suing his former managers for $25 million for mishandling his finances, and he was sued in May by a pair of former security guards over unpaid wages and a "toxic" work environment.

Last year, the actor emerged from a bitter divorce battle with actress Amber Heard, who accused him of domestic abuse.
