Johnny Depp sued over alleged concert attack on disabled woman

   Apr 17, 6:45 pm

Washington, Apr 17 (ANI): Johnny Depp has been sued by a 52-year-old disabled woman, who claims that she was roughed up and humiliated by the actor's bodyguards during a concert back in December.

According to the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court , the woman, who identifies herself as Jane Doe, has claimed that she was trying to get to her seat in the V.I.P. area of an Iggy Pop concert when Depp's bodyguards went berserk.

In the lawsuit, Doe- who claims she's a professor of medicine at UC Irvine - says that without any reason, the actor's team grabbed her from behind and bear-hugged her, while restraining both of her wrists.

Doe also claimed that the 48-year-old actor's bodyguards went after her cell phone-which contained highly sensitive confidential medical information about her patients-and ripped it from her hand "one finger at a time."

Doe claims a member of Depp's squad eventually put her in handcuffs-and then dragged her on the ground, causing her pants to be removed from her body, "exposing her buttocks to the other Hollywood Palladium Theater patrons," TMZ reported.

Doe claims she suffered severe injuries in the incident-including a dislocated left elbow, bleeding, swelling, bruising and possibly broken bones.

The woman has also claimed that the incident caused more damage to her pre-existing spondyloarthritis and fibromyalgia-which affects her joints and back.

Doe is suing the actor for unspecified damages. (ANI)
