Johnny Depp is facing legal action from a disabled woman, who has alleged she was assaulted by the actor's security guards at a rock concert in December last year.

The woman named Jane Doe claims she sustained severe injuries and emotional distress after Depp's minders hurt her during an Iggy and the Stooges gig at the Hollywood Palladium here, reports

She alleged that trouble ensued when Depp's entourage tried to take away her iPhone, before dragging her out of the VIP section and causing her pants to fall down.

The woman says Depp was aware of the struggle and was supplying direct supervision and management of his security guards and directing their actions.

She is seeking unspecified damages, medical costs, reimbursement for loss of income, attorney's fees and statutory damages.
