Washington, United States:
British model Kate Moss on Wednesday rejected reports that her ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp had once thrown her down a flight of stairs, saying it never happened.
“He never pushed, kicked or threw me down a flight of stairs,” said Moss, who testified as a witness at Depp’s libel trial against his former wife Amber Heard.
Depp, 58, filed a lawsuit against Heard over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in December 2018, in which she described herself as a “public figure who represents domestic violence.”
Heard, 36, didn’t name the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star in the opinion, but he sued her for suggesting he was a domestic abuser and is seeking $50 million in damages.
Texas-born Heard contradicted herself, asking for $100 million, claiming she had endured “rampant physical violence and abuse” because of him.
During her testimony earlier this month, Heard mentioned a reported incident in which Depp allegedly pushed his ex-girlfriend Moss down a flight of stairs.
That reference gave Depp’s lawyers an opening to call Moss as a witness to discuss the allegation, and she testified via video link from Gloucestershire, England.
Moss, 48, said she was in a romantic relationship with Depp from 1994 to 1998.
She was asked about an incident that occurred during a vacation that took the couple to a resort in Jamaica.
“We left the room and Johnny left the room before I did,” Moss said. “And there had been a downpour and when I left the room I slipped down the stairs and hurt my back.
“And I screamed because I didn’t know what had 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 help.”
Heard’s lawyers declined to question Moss.
