Model Kate Moss is expected to be called to the stand this week in Johnny Depp’s bombshell defamation trial against Amber Heard, The Post exclusively learned Monday.
The British fashion icon, 48, will testify via video link on Wednesday in the Fairfax, Virginia, courtroom, sources with knowledge said.
Depp’s lawyers were spotted fist-pumping a few weeks back when Heard, 36, suddenly brought up Moss during her testimony.
Legal experts explained at the time that Heard mentioning Moss on the stand could give her ex-husband’s team the chance to dispel a rumour that he pushed the supermodel down a flight of stairs when the two dated in the 1990s.
“That’s one mistake that [Heard] made, was bringing up Kate Moss, which potentially opened the door to [Depp’s team] bringing [Moss] on as an impeachment witness” — and Moss “saying ‘This never happened,’” said California entertainment lawyer Mitra Ahouraian.
A source close to Depp told The Post at the time: “Amber mentioned an ex of Johnny’s that clearly she felt was not supportive of him, which couldn’t be further from the truth.”
Lawyers for the “Pirates of the Carribean” star will call Moss as a witness, the sources said Monday.
She was in a relationship with Depp between 1994 and 1997, and has always been supportive of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star. (NYPost)
