Johnny Depp is reportedly being sued for attacking a crew member

Johnny Depp attacked a member of the crew on a movie shoot, telling the crew member he'd give him $100k to punch him in the face. and now the crew member wants his money in the form of a lawsuit.

Rocky went to Johnny and told him he only had one more shot.

In the film, which had previously been referred to as "LAbyrinth", 55-year-old Depp portrays LAPD Detective Russell Poole, who investigated the slaying of rapper Biggie Smalls.

Johnny Depp is heading to court after a film crewmember filed a lawsuit against him, according to THR.

Brooks said he didn't do anything, and then eventually, the bodyguards and security workers had to remove Depp from the set. "You have no right to tell me what to do", Depp allegedly yelled upon learning from Brooks that he'd need to wrap it up.

Brooks said Depp continued his belligerent behavior until bodyguards removed him from the set.

"Johnny Depp is a consummate professional, great collaborator and a supporter of other artists".

Depp is also now facing a lawsuit from two former bodyguards, Eugene Arreola and Miguel Sanchez, who allege that, in their assignment protecting Depp between 2016 and 2018, they "found themselves in situations that required more than what a bodyguard would be expected to do".

Depp, who Brooks claims smelled of alcohol, reportedly had to be dragged away by body guards, though the film's director, Brad Furman, claimed that the incident was overblown. "I don't give a f - k who you are and you can't tell me what to do!"

When Brooks returned to the set three days later, producer Miriam Segal allegedly wanted him to sign a declaration stating that he would not sue the production team.

"City of Lies" is due for release in September.

However, despite Depp's legal troubles, a source told ET last month that the actor was "getting his life back on track" after a harrowing couple of years.
