Johnny Depp was (almost) back in court this week. Fresh off his defamation victory over ex-wife Amber Heard, the 21 Jump Street star settled a case of alleged assault before it went to court. The alleged incident occurred on the set of Depp’s 2018 crime thriller, City of Lies

Johnny Depp’s Alleged On-Set Assault

City Of Lies location manager Gregg “Rocky” Brooks alleges that Depp hit him “twice in the lower left side of his rib cage and causing pain” after Brooks told a supposedly intoxicated Depp that they had to wrap filming for the night. 

The incident escalated when the producers allegedly demanded Brooks not to press charges. Brooks refused and then was subsequently fired from the production.

Heard trial star Camille Vasquez was set to defend Depp in court.

Johnny Depp Is Not Done With Amber Heard

Amber Heard is appealing the defamation ruling that decreed she pay Depp $10 million. 

“Though understandably displeased with the outcome of trial, Ms. Heard has identified no legitimate basis to set aside in any respect the jury’s decision,” the filing in Fairfax County claims. “Virginia law is clear that a verdict is not to be set aside unless it is “plainly wrong or without evidence to support it,”

Heard and her attorneys allege that the entire case should be thrown out because a “wrong” juror showed up at court. However, Depp’s attorneys contend that Heard knew about the mistake and said nothing about it at the time.
