Kate Moss took the stand in Johnny Depp’s trial against Amber Heard on today, denying that Depp ever pushed her down a flight of stairs and saying that he tended to her after she slipped.
Moss slipped, she said, while the two were at a resort in Jamaica while they were dating, sometime between 1994 and 1998.
“We were leaving the room, and Johnny left the room before I did,” she said. “And there had been a rainstorm. And as I left the room, I slid down the stairs and I hurt my back.”
The model’s entire testimony, via live video stream from England, took fewer than two minutes.
Moss’s role in the trial was teased Monday as a person close to Depp told she would be called as a witness.
While Moss wasn’t on the original list of witnesses Depp’s lawyers submitted to court, they reserved the right to call “any witnesses identified” by Heard and “any witness necessary for rebuttal or impeachment.”
Heard mentioned Moss in her testimony earlier in the trial, giving Depp’s lawyers a legal basis to call Moss to the stand. According to Heard, during a fight with Depp atop a flight of stairs, Moss flashed through her mind and she threw a punch at Depp in self-defense.
Moss, in her brief testimony Wednesday morning, said Depp never pushed her down a flight of stairs.
“He never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs,” Moss said.
