Johnny Depp trial — live: Kate Moss expected to testify against Amber Heard this week

by Ella Harold, May 24, 2022.

Amber Heard’s defence case continues in the defamation trial brought against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp, with the Pirates of the Caribbean star expected to be questioned again in court later today.

Heard is being sued by Depp for $50m for implying he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. Although she didn’t name him, he claims her allegations impacted his ability to work. She is pursuing a counterclaim of $100m.

Supermodel and Depp-ex Kate Moss will testify on Wednesday as a rebuttal witness for the actor. She is able to appear following Heard’s mention of her during testimony referring to a rumour about an alleged altercation between the two when they dated in the 1990s.

On Monday morning, the court heard from two expert witnesses, a hand surgeon who said he found Depp’s account of the severed finger fight inconsistent with the injury, and a psychiatrist who said the actor’s behaviour was “consistent with a perpetrator of intimate partner violence”.
