Kate Moss has debunked claims that her ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp “pushed her down the stairs.”
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star’s surprise witness arrived in court via video link during the final week of his $100 million defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard.
Moss stated in court that she resides in London but is giving testimony in Gloucestershire. She also said that she dated Johnny Depp from 1994 until 1997.
She denied charges made by Heard throughout her testimony. Due to a report that Depp shoved Moss down the stairs when they were dating in the 1990s, the actress claimed she felt linked to her.
Heard added that she was reminded of the alleged stairs incident in 2015 at her Los Angeles apartment when Depp allegedly tried to punch her sister Whitney. She said;
“I just, in my head, instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs.”
“We were leaving the room and Johnny left the room before I did, and there had been a rainstorm.
“As I left the room I slid down the stairs and I hurt my back.
“I screamed because I didn’t know what had happened to me and I was in pain.
“He came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention.”
When asked if Depp pushed her down the stairs she replied “no”. She continued: “He never pushed me, kicked me or threw me down any stairs.” Moss added she has never testified in a court case before.
Depp is suing Heard for $50million (£40million) over an article in which she claimed she was a victim of abuse. Heard did not name Depp in the article, but he claims it has cost him acting roles.
During his time on the stand, Depp was asked what it was like to have listened to the claims made by Amber Heard during her testimony. After a long pause, he told the court: “Insane.”
“It’s insane to hear heinous accusations of violence, sexual violence, that she’s attributed to me, that she’s accused me of.
“I don’t think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth, but there are times when one just simply has to because it’s gotten out of control.
“Horrible. Ridiculous. Humiliating. Ludicrous. Painful. Savage. Unimaginably brutal, cruel, and all… false. All false.
“I wanted… No human being is perfect, certainly not, none of us, but I have never in my life committed sexual battery, physical abuse, all these outlandish, outrageous stories of me committing these things, and living with it for six years and waiting to be able to bring the truth out.”
Heard and Depp’s marriage lasted from 2015 to 2016. But the 35-year-old star of the Aquaman films has countersued for $100million.
Previously the pair had reached an out-of-court divorce settlement in August 2016.
