JOHNNY Depp is being sued by a woman who claims his security removed her from her seat at a concert.

The '21 Jump Street' actor attended an Iggy Pop concert at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles last December and the woman - named only as Jane Doe in the lawsuit filed on Monday (16.04.12) - alleges he instructed his minders to grab her wrists and wrestle her to the ground after she tried to return to her seat in the VIP section of the venue.

She claims she was moved so roughly that her clothes were ''disheveled'', her shoes came off and her pants came down, ''exposing her buttocks'' to other concertgoers, according to court documents obtained by E! News.

The unidentified woman also alleges Johnny and his security detail were ''huddled and speaking to one another'' while looking at her and the actor was ''supplying direct supervision and management of his security guards and directing their current and future actions''.

The UC Irvine medical professor - who says her phone was ripped out of her hand ''one finger at a time'' - states that she suffered ''injuries to the extreme and outrageous humiliation''.

Johnny, 48, and the Hollywood Palladium are being sued for unspecified damages for a list of offenses, including negligence, assault, battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and discriminatory practices in public accommodations.
