Kate Moss Reveals Why She Testified in Johnny Depp-Amber Heard Trial
Kate Moss has talked about why she decided to testify in Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard’s defamation trial.
In an interview with the BBC radio show Desert Island Discs, Moss was asked about defending Johnny Depp and the fashion designer John Galliano, who was found guilty in a Paris court in 2011 of making racist and anti-Semitic comments.
Moss said, “I believe in the truth and in fairness and justice.” “I know that John Galliano is not a bad person. He had a drinking problem, and that’s why people turn against him. When people drink, they aren’t themselves, and they say things they’d never say when they’re sober.”
“I know the truth about Johnny,” she said next about Depp. I know he didn’t throw me down the stairs by kicking me. I had to be honest.”
The model, who dated Depp from 1994 to 1998, became involved in the case after Heard testified that she punched Depp in a fight to protect her sister.
“I just saw Johnny swing at my little sister as she stood with her back to the stairs,” Heard said in court. “I don’t think twice or hold back. I immediately think of Kate Moss on the stairs, so I hit him.”
Heard’s mention of Moss gave Depp’s lawyers a chance to call Moss as a witness to refute what Heard had said.
Benjamin Chew, Depp’s lawyer, pumped his fist with excitement when Heard brought up Moss on the stand. This made it possible for Moss to testify. Moss didn’t believe what Heard’s friend said about what happened.
Moss said, “As I left the room, I slipped down the stairs and hurt my back.” “And I screamed because I was in pain and didn’t know what was going on. He ran back to help me, carried me to my room, and took me to the hospital.
In the end, the jury ruled in Depp’s favour in the case he brought against Heard.
