Kate Moss had testified against Amber Heard at the recent high-profile Depp v Heard defamation trial. Although she was not physically present in court, she had provided a live video testimony in front of the jury where she was asked if the allegations against Johnny Depp pushing her down the stairs were true. She replied in the negative.

The Kate Moss testimony was highly integral to the Johnny Depp case. On May 5th, Amber Heard had brought up her name during her testimony. Heard said she feared for her sister’s life and safety as Depp chased after the latter on the stairs and her only reaction was to hit him because she remembered the Kate Moss staircase incident.

This allowed Kate Moss to be included as an impeachment witness in the trial as Amber Heard directly brought up an incident that until that point had only been a rumor. Kate Moss testified on record that Depp had never pushed her down any stairs. Heard later stated that the testimony still doesn’t change what she went through.
Now with the trial over, Heard has made a dig at the witnesses who were brought on the stand in the latter half of the defamation case. “Johnny’s later witnesses were what I like to call ‘rando’s”, she said.

I loveeee that Johnny Depp never asked Kate Moss to testify because he knew how private she is but Kate was so angry about the lies she went to his team. Kate is a fucking Queen 👑

The Kate Moss testimony was allowed on the stand to rebut the statement already presented by Amber Heard. In legal terms, there are some cases when the rebuttal witnesses are called to discuss an issue that has come up during the course of the trial. Had Heard not brought up the Moss-staircase incident, there would have been no cause on the plaintiff’s part to call the latter on the stand to ask her directly regarding the incident.
This brings to light the fact that Kate Moss was not just a random witness but brought forth to testify for Depp because of Amber Heard’s own statements.
