Johnny Depp Settles Assault Lawsuit, Still Claims He Did Nothing

Johnny Depp has privately settled an assault lawsuit against him, filed by a crew member of City of Lies. Shortly after a verdict was reached in his highly publicized defamation trial against Amber Heard, Depp was due back in court on charges of assault. The lawsuit was filed by City of Lies location property manager Gregg Brooks, back in 2018. Brooks and Depp were scheduled to appear in court on July 25, 2022, to settle the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that a disagreement between Depp and Brooks about a particular scene, on the set of the movie, turned violent. Brooks says Depp forcefully punched him in the rib cage twice during the altercation, while screaming obscenities at him, and that the attack only stopped when bodyguards escorted Depp away from the scene. Brooks noted that he smelled alcohol on Depp’s breath and that Depp also offered him $ 100,00 if Brooks punched him in return.
