Kate Moss explains why she testified in support of ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp in trial against Amber Heard

Kate Moss, a famous actress, has discussed her decision to testify in her ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp’s defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Moss was challenged about defending both Depp and fashion designer John Galliano, who was convicted of making racist and antisemitic remarks in a Paris court in 2011, during an appearance with the BBC radio program Desert Island Discs.

Moss responded, “I believe in the truth, and I believe in justice and fairness. “I am aware that John Galliano is not a horrible person, but he did have a drinking issue. When they are drunk, people don’t act like themselves and say things they would never say when sober.

Talking about Depp, she continued: “I know the truth about Johnny. I know he never kicked me down the stairs. I had to say that truth.”

Moss, who dated Depp from 1994-98, was drawn in the legal battle after Heard testified about a fight with Depp during which Heard punched him to protect her sister.

“I just see my little sister with her back to the staircase and Johnny swings at her.” Heard testified. “I don’t hesitate or wait. I just instantly think of Kate Moss and the stairs, and I swung at him.”

Heard’s mention of Moss gave Depp’s lawyers an opening to bring Moss in as a rebuttal witness.

“As I left the room, I slid down the stairs and I hurt my back,” Moss testified. “And I screamed because I didn’t know what happened to me, and I was in pain. He came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention.”

Depp was ultimately handed a sweeping legal victory by the jury in his case against Heard.
