Kate Moss will testify on Wednesday

Moss, 48, who dated Johnny Depp from 1994 until 1997, is set to appear at the actor’s defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard on Wednesday.

She will testify that Depp ‘caught her and tended to her’ after she slipped while wearing flip flops and fell down some steps in Jamaica.

The famously-private model, who rarely discusses her personal life, will be testifying publicly in support of Depp and is expected to shut down Heard’s claim the 58-year-old pushed Moss down the stairs.

The defense is resting today on day 21 of the Depp v. Heard trial. 

Heard’s legal team will not call Depp as a witness.

Depp’s lawyer Ben Chew is requesting that Judge Penney Azcarate strike Heard’s counterclaim against Depp.

Both Depp and Heard’s legal teams each get 61 hours to present their cases. 

Depp’s team has used 45 hrs 24 mins with 15 hours and 51 minutes remaining.

Heard’s team has used 57 hours six mins of time with 4 hours and nine minutes remaining.


Who is the father of Amber Heard’s baby?

Amber Heard had her first child via surrogate in 2021, five years after her nasty split from Johnny Depp.

The actress, now 36, shared a snap of herself last year cradling her daughter, named Oonagh Paige Heard, born on April 8, 2021.

She wrote a lengthy caption about wanting to have a child under her own conditions: ‘I’m so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child. I wanted to do it on my own terms.’

Depp’s former co-star Greg Ellis slammed what he called ‘false allegations’ brought against Depp by his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Ellis starred in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ as Lt. Theodore Groves. He emphasized the importance of remembering someone is ‘innocent till proven guilty.’

‘Too many lives ruined by false allegations because the #MeToo ‘iron clad certainty’ replaced the ‘reasonable doubt’ of jurisprudence. Merely proffering an accusation does not mean someone is guilty. The cultural default must always be innocent till proven guilty,’ he wrote on Twitter.

The high-profile defamation case between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard continues day in Fairfax, Virginia.

On Monday, a hand surgeon said he found Depp’s account of the severed finger fight inconsistent with the injury and a psychiatrist said the actor’s behavior was ‘consistent with a perpetrator of intimate partner violence.’

An entertainment industry expert testified she found the op-ed had no impact on Depp’s career, but the scandal had cost Heard up to $50m in earnings.

On Wednesday, Depp’s ex-girlfriend supermodel Kate Moss will testify as a rebuttal witness for the actor.

Judge Penney Azcarate has scheduled closing arguments in the case for Friday, after which it will go to the jury.
