Kate Moss Denies Johnny Depp Pushed Her Down Stairs

Kate Moss Testimony

The supermodel testified in the Amber Heard trial.

Moss appeared via videolink on day 22 of the Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife Heard. The proceedings are being held at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia.

During the brief testimony, Moss was questioned by Depp’s lawyer Ben Chew about their four-year relationship.

Regarding allegations made by Heard that there was a rumor that Depp had pushed Moss down the stairs during a holiday in Jamaica, Moss explained what really happened.

‘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.’

Chew asked again whether Depp had ever ‘pushed her down the stairs’ any time during their relationship.

‘No, he never pushed me, kicked me or pushed me down any stairs.’

Heard’s legal team opted not to cross-examine the supermodel. Her entire testimony lasted less than three minutes.

The former couple met in 1994 while in New York and embarked on a lengthy relationship before going their separate ways in 1998.

Moss has never alleged that she was abused by her ex during their lengthy romance, but has said that she cried for ‘years’ after their split.

She told Vanity Fair:

‘There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, “What do I do?”, he’d tell me. And that’s what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust.’

Depp is currently suing ex-wife Heard and seeking $50 million in damages over a 2018 op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post, in which she discussed her experiences of domestic abuse.

Heard is countersuing for $100 million, claiming that he libeled her by calling her a liar.
