In 2018, Gregg “Rocky” Brooks, a location manager who worked on the set of City of Lies with Johnny Depp sued him claiming that the actor allegedly assaulted him on set in April 2017. Sources say the two parties reached a settlement just weeks before they were set to go to a civil court in Los Angeles on July 25.

As per the court documents, Brooks claimed that the actor followed him and allegedly punched him twice in the ribs after screaming, “Who the f**k are you? You have no right to tell me what to do” when Brooks told him they only had one more shot while filming a scene in City of Lies. He also alleged in the complaint that Johnny Depp said he’d give him $100,000 to punch him in the face but Brooks didn’t do anything and Johnny Depp was eventually removed from the set.
