British supermodel Kate Moss will take the stand Wednesday on behalf of Johnny Depp in his bombshell defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Moss, 48, will testify via video link about an incident when she was “walking down some stairs in Jamaica. She was wearing flip-flops, and she slipped on the last two stairs. Johnny caught her and tended to her,” a source told the New York Post.
The cat walker got dragged into the messy legal fight after Amber Heard, 36, told jurors about a fight with Depp, 58, near a staircase in the couple’s Los Angeles penthouse in March 2015.

Whitney Henriquez Heard, Amber’s sister, testified that Heard and Depp were arguing over Depp’s alleged infidelity when Henriquez Heard thought he was about to push her sister down a flight of stairs. Henriquez Heard said she punched Depp, and it was the first time she had ever “landed a blow.”

Kate Moss and Johnny Depp arrived at the official screening of the film “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” at the 51st Cannes Film Festival.
