Kate Moss will appear at Depp defamation trial: Supermodel who dated Johnny from 1994-97 is set to take stand on Wednesday after Amber Heard namedropped her during case

  • Kate Moss will reportedly testify in Johnny Depp’s $100 million defamation trial after Amber Heard namedropped her last week
  • Experts say that Heard’s testimony on May 5, when she mentioned Moss, could give Depp’s team a chance to quell rumors about their relationship
  • Rumors abounded at the time that Depp pushed Moss down a flight of stairs when they were dating in the 1990s
  • Sources say that is not true – and Moss continues to support her ex-boyfriend

Kate Moss will appear at Johnny Depp’s $100million defamation trial against Amber Heard, DailyMail.com has confirmed.

The British model, 48, who dated the actor from 1994, will reportedly take the stand on Wednesday after she was mentioned by the actress earlier in the case.

Heard had brought up the super model in her testimony on Thursday, saying she felt connected to Moss due to a longstanding rumor that Depp pushed her down the stairs when they were dating back in the 1990s.

But by mentioning the alleged misconduct, Heard inadvertently allowed Depp’s lawyers to call her as a witness to discuss the rumor, which sources say is not true.

‘That’s one mistake that [Heard] made, was bringing up Kate Moss, which potentially opened the door to [Depp’s team] bringing [Moss] on as an impeachment witness’ and ‘saying “This never happened,”‘ California entertainment lawyer Mitra Ahouraian told the New York Post after Heard first made the allegations earlier this month. 

Another source said: ‘Amber mentioned an ex of Johnny’s that clearly she felt was not supportive of him, which couldn’t be further from the truth.’ 

Instead, they say, Moss – who dated Depp from 1994 to 1997 – remains supportive of him, and after Heard mentioned Moss on May 5, Depp’s lawyer, Benjamin Chew, could be fist bumping and smiling in celebration.

Heard first made the reference to Depp’s ex-girlfriend on May 5, when she told the jury about a March 2015 fight in which she punched Depp in the face over fears he was going to push her sister, Whitney, down the stairs.

She said she ‘instantly’ thought about the alleged Kate Moss incident at the time.

The namedropping allowed Depp’s attorneys to call Moss as a witness to discuss the allegations, with one entertainment lawyer telling Indy 100: ‘[Moss] is still allegedly friends with Johnny,’ but she was not originally allowed to testify about the incident because it wasn’t relevant.

Now, she could testify before the court in Fairfax, Virginia and clear the air about the longstanding rumor.

But Halim Dhanidina, a criminal defense attorney and former California judge, cautioned that Heard’s team could counter Moss’ testimony by explaining that the rumor was just meant to detail Heard’s ‘state of mind’ when she punched Depp all those years ago.

Moss’ testimony will come on the third to last day of the six-week trial, which is set to wrap up on Friday.
