Johnny Depp has been quiet with the unfavorable headlines over the past couple of years and his recent alleged outburst on the set of the upcoming film, Labyrinth. The movie records the life and times of late LAPD detective Russell Poole, most famous for his immense interest in The Notorious B.I.G.’s 1997 murder. According to Page Six, multiple sources relayed to the publication that Depp, 56, was “smoking and drinking all day on set” and attacked a location manager while screaming, “I’ll give you $100,000 to punch me right now!”
The alleged incident happened due to Depp’s willingness to keep the cameras rolling after a permit expired during a scene he was directing. “The producers kept asking for the time to be extended,” a source said. But when Labyrinth director, Brad Furman stepped in, yelling, “Tell that to Johnny Depp!” citing the scene was a wrap, the location manager had to face the wrath of Jack Sparrow in the flesh. “He was 6 inches away, yelling, ‘Who are you? You have no right!’” the source claimed Depp bellowed. It was then Depp was reported to attempt to punch the location manager in the ribs but the punch was so frail, it failed to inflict any damage or pain.
A statement from Furman said, “Johnny Depp is a consummate professional, great collaborator and a supporter of other artists.” “He always treats the crew and people around him with the utmost respect. Movies can be stressful, and nonevents often become exaggerated. We all love stories there isn’t one here.”
