“He immediately stood up from our shared seat on the edge of a planter bench and went over to Brooks to stand up for the woman,” Danoff said, per THR. “Mr. Depp said to Mr. Brooks, ‘You can’t talk to her like that. You think she is something less than you? Who do you think you are? How dare you?’”

Danoff also said that she had photos to prove that Depp didn’t punch the location manager.

The terms of the deal were not detailed in the notice.
