Gregg Brooks alleged that Johnny Depp assaulted him on the sets of the 2018 movie. Brooks claimed that when he went to tell him that only one scene is left, the Pirates of The Caribbean actor hit him on the ribs twice:

Brooks said in the complaint that Depp followed him and allegedly punched him twice in the ribs after screaming, “Who the f*ck are you? You have no right to tell me what to do.”

Brooks also alleged that Johnny Depp offered him $100,000 for hitting him back which he ignored. He also revealed that he was fired from the movie after he denied to not suing the star over this case.


The script supervisor of the movie Emma Danoff came to Depp’s defense that he didn’t do anything first and went on to Brooks after the location manager insulted a black woman with a racial slur. She stated:

“He immediately stood up from our shared seat on the edge of a planter bench and went over to Brooks to stand up for the woman,” Danoff said. “Mr. Depp said to Mr. Brooks, ‘You can’t talk to her like that. You think she is something less than you? Who do you think you are? How dare you?’”

According to reports, the case was settled before going to a civil trial although it’s not known what is needed from Johnny Depp to fulfill the agreement. Once it’s done, the case will be dismissed.
