Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s defamation lawsuit took a sharp turn after Kate Moss, Depp’s former girlfriend was testified on Wednesday. Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for $50 million for an op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post. Depp claims that her article turned things south for him and has made him look like an abuser when he clearly isn’t. Amber is countersuing him for $100 million.
Amber Heard recently narrated a confrontation between Depp and her sister Whitney. She claimed that this was the only time she smacked Depp in order to protect her sibling. She further mentioned that as soon as she saw Whitney and Depp near the staircase she couldn’t think of anything else other than the rumor of him shoving his ex-girlfriend, Kate Moss down the stairs. However, it was evident that Depp and his attorney Ben Chew were the happiest among all at the mention of Kate Moss clearly hinting at the benefit Depp might enjoy if Kate is testified.
‘He never pushed me” – Kate Moss
Kate Moss entered the stand in the trial between the former husband and wife on Wednesday, May 25th, adding to the suspense. The 48-year-old was not originally scheduled to testify, but Depp’s attorneys were eager to have her stand up when Heard made a comment about her during her testimony.
Depp’s lawyer questioned Moss about a rumored incident in which Depp shoved her down a flight of stairs, which Heard had mentioned. Moss testified via video link from Gloucester, England, that she slid down the steps because it was pouring while they were in Jamaica and that Depp did not push her. She then expanded on her quick response by claiming that he came to her rescue after she wounded her back.
“We were leaving the room and Johnny left the room before I did. There had been a rainstorm and as I left the room I slid down the stairs and I hurt my back. I screamed because I didn’t know what happened to me and I was in pain. Johnny came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention.”
When asked if Johnny ever pushed her down the stairs by any chance, she said, “He never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs.” Kate Moss’ testimony has as expected strengthened Depp’s side of the story and we can only feel sorry for Amber for digging her own grave by mentioning Depp’s ex-girlfriend.
