The Gregg ‘Rocky’ Brooks lawsuit
Gregg ‘Rocky’ Brooks, the location manager for a movie based on the investigation into the murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., said in 2018 that Depp punched him twice in the rib cage. The events, according to his version, happened on April 13, 2017.
Brooks said that things got heated after he told actor-director Brad Furman that a scene wasn’t working. Depp then punched him twice in teh rib cage. Brooks said that Depp yelled at him and told him to punch him back and that if he did, he’d give him $100,000, Brooks went looking for a cop.

Brooks’ lawyer, Pat Harris, recently said that he respected the decision in Fairfax, but that the process in this case is different, and the outcome there will be irrelevant.
“The Brooks case is not about two Hollywood celebrities involved in a toxic relationship, it is about the assault on a hard-working film crew member by the star of the production. Mr. Brooks is looking forward to his day in court,” he noted.
