Kate Moss Explains The Truth Behind 'Staircase Incident' In Depp Vs Heard Trial

Kate Moss Explains The Truth Behind 'Staircase Incident' In Depp Vs Heard Trial

Kate Moss provided testimony on the 'staircase incident' after it was mentioned by Amber Heard.

Kate Moss has testified in Johnny Depp's defamation case against Amber Heard. Watch below.

The supermodel testified via videolink on Wednesday (25 May) to discuss her relationship with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, whom she dated in the 1990s.

Moss said her relationship with Depp lasted between 1994 to 1998. During a trip to Jamaica, she slid down some stairs because of a rainstorm and hurt her back.

She clarified via videolink from Gloucestershire, England that Depp helped her after her accidental fall by getting her medical attention. However, Heard claimed that she felt connected to Moss because of a rumour that Depp pushed Moss down the stairs during the holiday.

Heard discussed Moss on the stand on 5 May, when she spoke to the court about an alleged fight in March 2015 in which she claimed she punched Depp in the face over fears he would push her sister Whitney Heard down the stairs.

Heard testified: “[Whitney’s] back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her. 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.”

Depp’s team called Moss as a witness to discuss the incident after Heard mentioned the supermodel in her testimony.

Moss is famously private about her personal life but agreed to give a testimony about her relationship with Depp and to clarify the details surrounding the incident.

She also testified that Depp never pushed, kicked or threw her down any stairs.

Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36, in a $50 million (£40.1million) defamation lawsuit over abuse claims she made in a piece for The Washington Post in 2018.

Depp’s legal team argue that the article implies Heard was physically and sexually abused by Depp when they were married, although the article does not mention him by name.

Heard formally rested her case on Tuesday (24 May). This means her legal team has finished explaining their case and are ready for the judge or jury to decide on the outcome.

The trial is expected to end this week.
