A lawsuit has been filed by a Californian medical professor alleging that Johnny Depp and the Hollywood Palladium are responsible for allowing security staff to aggressively remove her from the venue.
According to legal papers, the woman, who would not reveal her name for fear of damaging her career, was at the Hollywood Palladium with her husband to watch a performance by Iggy and the Stooges, reports Yahoo UK Movies News.
Because she suffers from back problems and walks with a cane, she had to purchase VIP tickets to obtain proper access to the venue: and it was here that she encountered Depp and his entourage.
It is alleged that Depp's security guards, 'directed by Depp', proceeded to grab her and take her phone, and in the process dragged her across the VIP area so that ‘her clothes became dishevelled and her shoes fell off’.
After the confrontation, security guards are said to have approached the woman again, this time handcuffing her and forcibly removing her from the venue. As she was dragged out, the lawsuit alleges, her ‘pants were removed... exposing her buttocks to the other Hollywood Palladium theatre patrons’.
Depp is believed to have witnessed the entire incident, and is even accused of ignoring the woman's pleas for him to call off the attack.
The incident is said to have aggravated her disability, caused injuries including a dislocated elbow and ‘outrageous humiliation’.
We are still waiting for a response from the Depp and Hollywood Palladium reps.
