Johnny Depp has reportedly found himself on the receiving end of a lawsuit this time around, and his ex-wife Amber Heard is pumping in appeal after appeal.
For those unversed, the lawsuit has been filed by Gregg Rocky Brooks. He alleges that on the set of City of Lies, in 2018, Johnny Depp punched him in the ribcage.
However, since the initial filing, Depp has been negotiating an out-of-court settlement with Brooks.
According to Radar, Brooks cites “emotional distress” and “humiliation” as his main woes, and added that Depp’s “intoxication and temper” created a “hostile, abusive and unsafe work environment.”
The lawsuit even goes on to allege that Depp offered him nearly $100,000 to punch him in the “unspecified damages” charge that includes the film’s producers and directors as well.
Depp continues to deny any wrongdoing related to the case and once even mentioned he’s already “made amends with Brooks.”
He made the claim in a deposition and added, “I had my assistant bring a bottle of wine. And we toasted in I think paper cups. And, you know, no harm, no foul.”
“I apologized. He apologized. Gave him a hug. We embraced. You know, I hugged him. And everything was cool.”
“As a matter of fact, he asked for a selfie with me. And so I took a selfie with him.”
