Kate Moss denies Johnny Depp pushed her down the stairs during courtroom testimony
On Wednesday, Kate Moss gave a three-minute video deposition in the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial, denying a claim that Depp threw her down a flight of stairs when they were dating in the 1990s.
From her home in Gloucestershire, England, the 48-year-old supermodel told a Virginia court that she and Depp had been in a love relationship from 1994 until 1998.
Moss was asked by Depp's lawyer, Benjamin Chew, if anything had happened when they were on vacation at the GoldenEye resort in Jamaica.
"We were leaving the room, and Johnny left the room before me, and it was raining." "I went down the stairs as I left the room and bruised my back," Moss said the court through video connection.
"I yelled because I was in pain and didn't know what had happened to me." He came running back to support me, carrying me to my room and seeking medical assistance," she added.
Moss testified in court, "He never pushed me, kicked me, or shoved me down any stairs."
Moss was not cross-examined by Heard's attorneys, and she was told she was free to leave.
Depp's defence team summoned Moss, who seemed ecstatic when her name was mentioned by Heard during her evidence, where she resurrected the allegation that Depp had pushed her down a flight of steps.
Depp later testified in court to refute elements of Heard's prior evidence. Among them was Heard's allegation that Depp had taken a handful of ecstasy tablets during a trip to Australia in 2015.
Depp admitted to taking the drug, commonly known as MDMA, six or seven times during his life. As Heard testified, his lawyer asked him directly if he had ever taken eight to ten tablets at once.
He also denied Heard's allegations that he had nothing to do with her earning a role in the superhero film Aquaman.
