The matter is over...
TMZ reports that Johnny Depp has settled a lawsuit with a woman named Robin Eckert who claims that his bodyguard beat her up.
Depp went to an Iggy Pop concert in Los Angeles in 2011 when Eckert, who was sitting next to him, claims she got up and danced a little too close. That's when the bodyguards dragged her to the ground, causing her pants to fall to her ankles and "expose her buttocks to other Hollywood Palladium Theater patrons." She said that she had several injuries and even filed a police report. However police never believed the story and believed she was under the influence at the time. That's when she sued Depp and others.
Eckert, who said she's a professor of medicine at UC Irvine, has been given an undisclosed amount. All defendants paid some money to get rid of her.
