Director Of Johnny Depp’s First Post-Trial Movie Is Being Sued For Alleged Assault

After Johnny Depp made headlines throughout 2022 for the highly-public defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard that ended in his favor, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor headed to France in the fall to make his first movie in years, a French film called Jeanne du Barry from director/actor Maiwenn. Just a couple days after it was announced that Jeanne du Barry would be getting a fancy premiere at this spring’s Cannes Film Festival, now Maiwenn is being accused of assault. 

The accomplished French filmmaker and actor is being sued by the editor-in-chief of Mediapart magazine, Edwy Plenel, for allegedly attacking him at a restaurant back in February. As confirmed by a Variety report, the lawsuit comes after Plenel filed a police complaint on March 7 where he detailed that Maiwenn came up to the journalist while he was having dinner at a restaurant, grabbed him by the hair, spit in his face and left the location, all without saying a single word to him.
