Johnny Depp is back in court, this time being charged with assault
The case dates back to 2017. Greg Brooks worked with the actor on “City of Lies” and says he was punched in the chest.
There is no rest for Johnny Depp. Just days after his triumphant and lengthy trial that put him face to face with his ex-wife, Amber Heard, the actor appears to have another trip scheduled, this time to the dock.
The plaintiff is Greg Brooks, who served as part of the film’s crew “City of Lies”which accuses Depp, an actor, of punching him in the chest during an argument, in 2017, in Los Angeles.
“This case is not a case between two Hollywood celebrities involved in a toxic relationship. It is about the production star assaulting the worker. Mr. Pat Harris told The Sun.
The lawsuit was filed in 2018 and alleges that Johnny Depp was upset when he was told to pause filming, because they would have exceeded the legal hours set by the city.
“Who are you? The actor replied to Brooks, when I tell him to boycott, you have no right to tell me what to do. The actor then punched Brooks, before shouting, ‘I’ll give you a hundred thousand dollars if you punch me in the face now.'”
Brooks reportedly remained silent, and in the face of the reaction, “Depp continued to shout and insult, in front of the entire team, until he was removed from the scene by his bodyguards.” The complainant claims that Depp “smelled of alcohol” at the time of the argument.
When Brooks returned to the set, he reportedly approached producer Miriam Segal, who asked him to sign a declaration pledging not to sue the team. You will have been refused, and as a result, you will be fired.
Depp claims that Brooks’ injuries were the result of “self-defense” and that the agent “provoked” the behavior that led to the physical altercation.
In 2018, other members of the film crew will have testified that the confrontation between Depp and Brooks did not turn into physical aggression and was only verbal. “They had a moment there, there were no punches, nothing like that. They were face to face for a second,” script supervisor Emma Danoff said. “We scored for another hour and an hour and a half, and then we left.”
