Crew member says Johnny Depp punched him on LA film set

Actor Johnny Depp posed at the world premiere of the film "Murder on the Orient Express", in November 2017, in London.

A crew member on the upcoming crime film City of Lies filed a lawsuit on Friday, July 6, that claims the actor physically and verbally assaulted him on set in Los Angeles in April 2017, according to court documents obtained by Us Weekly. "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!"

The movie stars Johnny as real-life LAPD detective Russell Poole, who investigated the 1997 murder of 25-year-old rapper Biggie Smalls.

Brooks said he was sacked from the "City of Lies" production three days later after he refused to sign a release giving up his right to sue Depp over the incident.

Rocky claims Depp continued his tirade and his bodyguards then removed him from the area. "I don't give a f - k who you are and you can't tell me what to do!"

Brooks says he told the director, Brad Furman, that shooting would have to halt.
