Kate Moss who dated Johnny Depp testified in support of the actor. Moss supported him in his ongoing defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard.
British model Kate Moss, who had dated Johnny Depp, briefly took the witness stand in the defamation battle between Johnny and Amber Heard on Wednesday. Kate had been brought up by Amber earlier in the trial when she claimed Johnny had pushed the model down a staircase when they dated in the 90s. However, in her testimony on Wednesday, Kate denied any such incident ever taking place.
Johnny is suing Amber in Virginia for $50 million, saying she defamed him when she said she was a victim of domestic abuse in a Washington Post article in 2018. Amber Heard has countersued for $100 million, arguing that Depp smeared her when his lawyer said her claims were a “hoax.” Closing arguments in the case, which is being heard in Virginia, are scheduled for Friday, May 27.
On Wednesday, Johnny’s legal team called Kate as a rebuttal witness after Amber had testified about a time she feared Johnny would push her sister down a staircase. She had said she recalled “rumors” of Johnny pushing Kate Moss down a flight of stairs and she slapped Johnny to stop him from harming her sister.
Kate, who dated Johnny from 1994 to 1998, testified that she slipped on a staircase and injured her back during a vacation the couple took in Jamaica. She added that Johnny rushed to help her, carried her to her room, and summoned medical services. “He never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs,” said Kate, who appeared via video from England.
