Johnny Depp Settles Alleged "Concert Brawl" Lawsuit

Posted Friday January 3, 2014 6:53 PM GMT

Deciding that paying a fee instead of going through the complicated mess of a lawsuit would be better for his health, Johnny Depp settled his Iggy Pop concert lawsuit from 2011.

Apparently, while in attendance at the concert, a woman sitting beside the now 50-year-old got to her feet, and began dancing a bit too close for the star's comfort, thus instigating a response from his bodyguards.

The woman, Robin Eckert, who claims to be a professor of medicine at U.C. Irvine, then said that Depp's guards threw her to the ground, forcing her pants to slip down.

She stated that the incident "exposed her buttocks to other Hollywood Palladium Theater patrons," and ended up suing for unknown damages.

As a result, the "Pirates" actor, as well as other defendants, decided to pay Eckert, in lieu of going through the headache of a massive lawsuit.
