Johnny Depp took the "thug life" theme of his next movie a little too seriously -- according to a crew member who's suing him for violent threats and actual assault.
New York's Daily News reports that Gregg "Rocky" Brooks filed suit on Friday, charging that Depp went ballistic on the set of City of Lies -- a drama based on the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
According to the lawsuit, an extremely intoxicated Depp punched location manager Brooks twice in the rib cage after being told they had to wrap shooting for the day. Depp allegedly then screamed, “I will give you $100,000 to punch me in the face right now.”
Brooks says he was fired after he refused to sign a document promising not to sue the production company.
Talk About It:
- A lot of people would be willing to punch Johnny in the face for free.
- He was playing a cop who was on the edge of madness -- maybe he was too deep in character.
- No wonder Johnny is dead broke!
