According to the lawsuit, the production was given permission to shoot outside the hotel until 7 P.M. and inside the hotel until 10 P.M. Brooks had to get the shooting permit extended twice to accommodate Depp because the actor wanted to perform a longer cut of a particular scene.

- A film crew member says in a lawsuit that Johnny Depp twice punched him on the Los Angeles set of a movie about the killing of the Notorious B.I.G., and that he was sacked from the production when he refused to promise not to sue over the incident.

Rocky says during the altercation Depp's breath reeked of alcohol.

Mr. Furman states that Depp "respects other artists", and while movie sets become stressful and take a lot of work, there simply "isn't one (a story) here", as much as Brooks would like there to be.

TMZ claimed Brooks went to get a police officer for protection before approaching the star, who reportedly screamed at him: "Who the f*** are you?" Depp allegedly yelled, "I will give you $100,000 to punch me in the face right now!"

Brad Furman, the director, responded to the allegations in a statement to Page Six, where he referred to the claims as "exaggerated", and described Depp as a "consummate professional", as well as a "great collaborator". "I don't give a f - k who you are and you can't tell me what to do!"

Public Health England said the risk to the general public "remains low". Authorities have launched a murder inquiry into her death, police said.

The location manager on City Of Lies, whom Johnny "punched in the ribs" in May, has hired a lawyer, according toTMZ.

"PLAINTIFF still did not react and DEPP continued to scream and berate him in front of a set full of people until DEPP's own bodyguards physically removed DEPP from the scene".

He is seeking unspecified damages, and Johnny Depp's rep has so far remained silent.

"City of Lies" is due to be released on September 7.

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.
