    He probably got mad and punched the wall in his trailer or something. He’s talked about doing it before and Holly Robinson Pete said she confronted him about something once and he got mad and trashed his trailer.

    The man is 51 years old, of course he will break something.

    Looks like Amber jinxed yet another film. First the cyclones, then this accident and now a psycho with a knife dressed up as a pirate tries to come on set and police track him down in a Kmart or something like that hiding in a room. Let’s just do to her what Salem did to the witches and be done with this nonsense.

    Could the trolls obsessed with Amber Heard, just leave this article alone and without their usual nonsense? This is about Johnny and things that could happen (and in fact happens) to anyone for plenty of reasons, only that in his case it may be a little more complicated because he’s a guitar player about to start his first musical tour with a band full of legends…
    If you are only interested to talk about Amber Heard then go to another article about her and leave this for the fans that really care about Johnny’s health!!

    So this happened when he was NOT on set. Hmmm….

  • Guest

    nonsense? since she come to his life, johnny been a mess! I have feeling she have something to do with this! maybe fight over phone and johnny get mad and hurt himself!

  • Guest

    Sure because only actors on set get injured!
    Normal people never falls nor get hit by something, etc…no, no, never

  • Guest

    oh please, because it only could be something related to Amber, isn’t it? You are so obsessed with her that it seem you are as in love with her as Johnny
    by the way it seem Amber’s already back in US, maybe because Johnny’s surgery? Too much for your fanfiction about phone fights LOL

  • Lol

    the same troll with the same, please. accidents happen all the time, but when are many action movies. is not the first, that hurts recording pirates.
    troll go to your favorite website, which is to Jamber to is that you belong there.

  • Lol

    The troll is believed that all the items are hers. all the items the attacks, the article is not amber, and always speak the same shit.

  • Melody

    You make too many excuses. There is something weird about this. Read between the lines.

  • Melody

    Something is definitely strange about all of this. Wish him a speedy recovery.

  • Melody

    They are too stupid to see through shit and see the truth. She has no talent, no class, no morals. She’s a manipulative fame wh0re and a homewrecker. Johnny had to be in a rehab program because of her. She’s not good news. Rumor has it, she’s a drug user herself. How can they be fans of her? So embarrassing.

    I do not know what is wrong with him, but think punching a hole in a room or trailer would not cause any kind of surgery let along one that he needs to travel overseas for the surgery. Maybe if he was an ordinary person whose health insurance did not cover medical treatment outside the USA like an average person, but that does not seem like the case here. Wish him well. Guess we find out more later maybe.

    Surgery could be needed if there are any broken bones that are badly misaligned and need to be pinned. Like a boxers fracture. As for him flying back to the States for surgery instead of having it there, who knows? Maybe he wants to come home for a bit or wants a doctor/hospital he knows and trusts.

  • Guest

    The Hollywood Reporter wrote that they confirmed the injury happened when he was shooting on set.
    hmm. It could be that the rep from Disney doesn’t want this to be known as an accident on set and that’s why the conflicting report? anytime an accident happens on set it’s a huge deal, police have to issue reports, experts have to check over the safety for the workers, etc, etc. then it comes the insurances involved on the movie, etc
    Maybe they don’t want to deal with the bureaucracy of an accident on set and as Johnny doesn’t need any money from any insurance to get the best doctors in the world, maybe they got an agreement

  • jady

    Gina Deuters (his assistant’s wife) uploaded a picture over the weekend wearing a hospital bracelet with her name and thanking the health care in queensland. Maybe they had an accident.

  • jady

    i don’t know it could be.
    But i think the accident with the entourage sounds even more likely because it would be too much coincidence.
