While addressing an alleged fight between Johnny and her sister Whitney, Amber Heard brought his ex girlfriend Kate Moss during her testimony. Last week in the defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the “And Soon The Darkness” actress told court that her sister Whitney was near a staircase “in the line of fire trying to get Johnny to stop”. While on the stand, Heard remembered the alleged incident between Kate Moss and Johnny Depp, telling, “Whitney’s back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her. I don’t hesitate, I don’t wait…I just, in my head, instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs. And I swung at him. In all of my relationship to date with Johnny, I hadn’t landed a blow. And I, for the first time, hit him…like, actually hit him. Square in the face.”
The New York Post reported that Amber Heard first mentioned the alleged Kate Moss staircase incident when she took the stand at the Uk defamation trial in 2020. She narrated to court then, “I remembered information I had heard that he pushed a former girlfriend, I believe it was Kate Moss, down the stairs. I had heard this rumor from two people and it was fresh in my mind.” After dating each other for 4 years, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss broke up in 1997 but later were seen together at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998. Depp and Moss didn’t hesitated to express their love in public, however, they were caught arguing with each other in public.
One fight between Johnny and Kate ended up with the former’s arrest as Johnny Depp was arrested in September, 1994 at Mark Hotel in New York City for making a mess of his hotel room. Cops found the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star drunk and his girlfriend was uninjured, later a judge dropped the charge against him on the condition that he stay out of trouble. Depp had to pay Mark Hotel $10,000 and $2000 for damages.
In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2012, Kate Moss opened up about her affair with him, sharing, “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.”
