The version of Amber Heard and the appearance of Kate Moss
Heard testified at this trial that that day he hit Depp to protect his sisterbut that he grabbed her by the back of the head and hit her face repeatedly.
This episode was also analyzed in the previous defamation lawsuit that the ex-partner already had in the United Kingdom during the year 2020. In his statement, Heard assured that he attacked her at least 14 timesrepeatedly threatening to kill her, and that he slapped, hit her on the head and kicked her during violent outbursts of jealousy caused by her excessive drug and alcohol use.
As he said in that trial, that day was the first time he faced him and that she thought he was going to push her sister Whitney down the stairs. “The moment it happened I was reminded of information I had heard (that he) had pushed an ex-girlfriend — I think it was Kate Moss — down the stairs,” Heard said. “That memory came ‘in the blink of an eye’ and he reacted to defend his sister from him, he added.
In that trial, Henríquez testified to the same thing and the judge ended up ruling that Depp, on that occasion as well as many others, assaulted Heard.

The moment Heard pronounced Moss’s man, the actor’s lawyers cheered, shaking their fists in victory. Depp flashed a satisfied smile. What is this about?
There is nothing clear but this could be because until now Kate Moss could not be called to testify, but the fact that Heard mentioned her in court could lead to her being subpoenaed to testify. Apparently that would benefit Depp.
