Brooks claims Depp hired 2 of his friends for a scene in downtown L.A. on April 13, 2017. That conversation was seemingly cut short when the apparently booze on the breath Pirates of the Caribbean star supposedly start screaming obscenities at Brooks and proceeded to strike him "twice in the lower left side of his rib cage and causing pain".

In the movie, "City of Lies", set for USA release September 7, the 55-year-old Depp plays a Los Angeles police detective who for years investigated the still-unsolved 1997 death of the rapper Notorious B.I.G., also known as Biggie Smalls, whose real name is Christopher Wallace. Brooks says the scene wasn't working well, and he informed the director they could only have one more shot at finishing it.

Brooks alleges that he went to get an on-set police officer to help him break the news to Depp, but that before he could do so, Depp accosted him, yelling, "Who the f*** are you?"

"Sacha Baron Cohen Stars in 'Who Is America?" for Showtime
Baron Cohen burst onto the comedy scene with 2000's Da Ali G Show , which received six Emmy nominations during its four-year run. Now the actor has shared a second video which teases what has been reported to be a new series for Showtime.

Furman allegedly replied: "Why don't you tell that to Johnny Depp?". When Brooks tried to explain to Depp that his job as location manager is to make sure the film's production adheres to city permits, Depp reportedly fired back, "I don't give a fuck who you are and you can't tell me what to do". "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. He is now seeking "unspecified damages" over the incident.

Earlier this year, two former bodyguards filed a lawsuit alleging that they were "forced to protect (Depp) from himself" in a variety of "toxic", unsafe situations, including when they had to dust drugs off his face in public. IndieWire has reached out to Depp's representative for comment.
