Kate Moss to Testify in Johnny Depp, Amber Heard Defamation Trial After Heard’s ‘Stairs’ Remark

Kate Moss is set to testify in the ongoing defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

The supermodel, now 48, will speak to the court in Fairfax, Virginia, via video link on Wednesday.

Heard made a reference to Moss earlier this month while telling an alleged altercation between Depp and Heard’s sister, Whitney Henriquez.

The Aquaman 2 actress said Henriquez was near a staircase “in the line of fire … trying to get Johnny to stop,” which reminded her of a rumored incident between Moss and Depp.

“[Whitney’s] back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her,” Heard testified. “I don’t hesitate, I don’t wait — I just, in my head, instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs.”

“And I swung at him,” Heard continued of the alleged March 2015 incident between herself, Henriquez and Depp.

“In all of my relationship to date with Johnny, I hadn’t landed a blow,” she said. “And I, for the first time, hit him — like, actually hit him. Square in the face.”

Heard added, “He didn’t push my sister down the stairs.” (Henriquez, 34, testified later that Depp once hit her and then “repeatedly” struck Heard, who allegedly defended Henriquez in the incident.)

A rep for Moss has not responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Depp’s lawyers were spotted fist-pumping when Heard mentioned Moss’ name during her testimony, presumably because it gave them the opportunity to bring in the model as an impeachment witness to dispel the rumored incident.

Heard first made the Moss staircase allegation during her testimony at Depp’s U.K. defamation trial in 2020, according to The New York Post.

“I remembered information I had heard [that] he pushed a former girlfriend — I believe it was Kate Moss — down the stairs,” Heard previously testified while describing the same fight involving her sister and Depp. “I had heard this rumor from two people and it was fresh in my mind.”
