Johnny Depp called a familiar face to the stand in the ongoing Depp vs. Heard defamation trial. Kate Moss testified by video on Wednesday, May 25, and told a radically different story than the one Amber Heard had previously given the jury, reports TMZ. Kate and Johnny were a couple in the mid-90s and Amber mentioned their relationship as she recounted Depp allegedly swinging at her on a staircase. According to TMZ, Amber said when the moment happened, she thought of a rumored incident between Johnny and Kate so she "felt she knew what was coming and swung at him."
While Amber had insinuated Johnny had become violent during his relationship with Kate, Johnny's lawyer called Kate to the stand, who had a very different story. During her testimony, Kate recalled an incident when she was at a hotel with Johnny and slipped down the stairs in the rain, which injured her back. She said she cried out in pain and Johnny came rushing to carry her inside the hotel room and get her medical attention.
She also testified that the actor never got physical with her in any way during their time together. Kate said the staircase incident was an accident and Johnny was there to help her. According to TMZ, the testimony supports what Amber eventually admitted during cross-examination, that Johnny hitting the supermodel was a "vague" and false rumor she had once heard.
