The "Aquaman" actress' statement allowed his attorneys to summon Moss as a witness.
Moss was asked to testify after Heard cited the British model in her testimony on Thursday, referring to an incident in which Depp is accused of pushing her down a flight of stairs during an argument.
“[Whitney’s] back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her,” the “Aquaman” actress stated. “I don’t hesitate; I don’t wait — I just, in my head, instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs.”
As we previously reported, Heard recently admitted in court that she did not donate her $7 million divorce settlement to charity after testifying that she did on the 16th day of their defamation trial.
She also fired her public relations agency, Precision Strategies, just days before her planned court appearance with her ex-husband and replaced it with Shane Communications, a business that has previously worked against Depp.
In a separated event, Milani Cosmetics set the record straight about her claim that she used their concealer to cover up bruises from Depp’s alleged physical abuse throughout their “entire relationship” between 2014 and 2016, despite the fact that the kit was only introduced in 2017.
Reactions to Kate Moss Expected To Testify At Johnny Depp's Defamation Trial Against Amber Heard
Kate Moss testifying for Johnny Depp is the power move I needed on a Monday afternoon AMBER WILL PERISH ON THE SPOT— brooke (@depplyhaIIows) May 23, 2022
Kate Moss testifying for Johnny Depp is huge. Amber's defence for hitting Johnny was because she said he threw Kate down the stairs and Amber thought he'd do it to her sister. When this blows up in her face remember she brought it on herself.— Strawberry Fields ミ☆ (@sunflxwervolsix) May 23, 2022
The immense respect I have for Kate Moss right now… She's a very private person and she has had her own share of dirt thrown at her by the media. The fact that she's willing to stand up for Johnny Depp, all with a live cross examination waiting for her is some queen behaviour. pic.twitter.com/HjV4nmUFgd— KeepRocking (@truthhurts06) May 23, 2022
So Amber Heard stans, after 6 years of saying Johnny Depp abused Kate Moss, your queen finally opened the door for her to stand up for him under oath. Team work.— KeepRocking (@truthhurts06) May 23, 2022
Omg omg omg Kate Moss will testify and she is one of the most private women ever. If she is willing to break her silence in the name of justice that says a lot about how she feels about Johnny Depp. I honestly feel like crying right now…. #JusticeForJohnnydepp— 🐝- Annabel Depphead -🐝 (@mrsdepp_head) May 23, 2022
