Amber Heard's take on Johnny Depp's 'STAIRCASE ASSAULT' on Kate Moss goes viral
Heard told the court that Depp had once pushed Moss down the stairs, so when she saw Depp grab her sister near a staircase, she was 'triggered'
The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard which began on April 11 2022 has been bringing up controversial topics. Heard has made a number of charges against her ex-husband Johnny Depp since taking the stand. And on Thursday, she referred to allegations that Depp had pushed ex-girlfriend Kate Moss down a flight of stairs in the 1990s. This testimony has become viral and people are all ears to know the truth.
Heard took to the stand for the second day in the multi-million dollar defamation case against Depp and spoke about one of her fights with her ex-husband in March 2015. During the confrontation with Depp, involving her sister Whitney, she said she "instantly" thought of "Kate Moss and stairs." Heard opened up about how she allegedly hit Depp with a can of Red Bull and yelled at him, causing him to grow upset. When her sister Whitney joined in the fight, she said Depp followed her up a staircase and grabbed her. This is when she instantly got 'triggered'.
Heard was describing when she punched Depp in the face for the first time out of fear he was going to shove her sister Whitney down a staircase.
Heard said she and Depp had been fighting on the mezzanine of the stairs in one his many penthouses when her sister got in between them. “She threw herself in the line of fire,” Heard said of her sister. “She was trying to get Johnny to stop. Her back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her.
“I don’t hesitate and wait — I instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs.”
This is not the first time that Heard has made the Kate Moss 'staircase assault' allegation. While describing the same fight involving her sister during the 2020 UK libel trial between Depp and The Sun, Heard claimed that she heard rumors about the actor pushing Moss down the stairs while they were dating in the 1990s.
“I remembered information I had heard [that] he pushed a former girlfriend — I believe it was Kate Moss — down the stairs. I had heard this rumor from two people and it was fresh in my mind," she had said.
Heard's latest testimony went viral online, with several people debating her statement.

Did Johnny Depp push Kate Moss down the stairs?
Kate Moss and Johnny Depp dated for three years between 1994 and 1998, following his breakup with Winona Ryder. They met in 1994 at the upscale New York hideaway Cafe Tabac. Depp and Moss were considered an iconic pair of the 1990s. When it came to public displays of admiration for one another, Moss and Depp were not shy. According to a 2019 Instagram post by George Wayne, the man who introduced Moss and Depp, the pair enjoyed an "unforgettable union."
Moss has never accused Depp of being abusive during their relationship, but the former couple were often spotted shouting at each other in public. There were also rumors of an argument in 1994 between the former couple that led to Depp trashing their room at the New York City’s Mark Hotel. Depp had been arrested for criminal mischief after the incident and had to even pay $10,000 in damages to the hotel. Police found Depp “in a state of possible intoxication” and Moss uninjured.
During a 2012 interview with Vanity Fair, Moss admitted that nobody was able to take care of her the way Depp had. "There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, 'What do I do?' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!"
Depp blamed their breakup on himself — for letting his stress from work get to him, and not giving Moss the attention that she deserved. “I have been so stupid because we had so much going for our relationship. I’m the one who has to take responsibility for what happened—I was difficult to get on with, I let my work get in the way, and I didn’t give her the attention I should have done," Depp had told Hello! Magazine.
“The whole thing was crazy because I should never have got so worked up over what people had to say about my work,” Depp continued. “Sure, I should care about my movies, but when I get home, I should try to leave that stuff behind. I couldn’t do that, and I was horrific to live with. Trust me. I’m a total moron at times.”
