Johnny Depp Accused of Punching Film Crew Member in New Lawsuit

Mr Brooks claims Depp's breath "reeked of alcohol" and he alleges he had been taking drugs on set. But before Brooks could get help, he claims that Depp punched him twice in the rib cage. When Brooks noticed that the scene wasn't working, he told the director they could only have one more shot at filming it.

The lawsuit also says Depp said, "I DON'T GIVE A F- WHO YOU ARE AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!"

Brooks knew Depp for his bad temper, so he called on an officer for back up just in case Depp didn't react to the news well, the location manager claimed in the lawsuit.

Depp is also locked in a legal battle that started previous year with The Management Group (TMG), who counter-sued Depp after the actor sued its principals Joel and Robert Mandel for allegedly collecting millions in fees without his consent. Jony still continued his tirade and was removed by bodyguards.
