Depp is currently suing Heard for $50 million over an article in which she alleged she was molested. However, the ‘Aquaman’ star has filed a $100 million counterclaim. Now Kate Moss, the British supermodel, is set to testify about an alleged event in the 1990s when she was dating Depp, during which he reportedly pushed her down the stairs.

Kate Moss’ rise to fame and fortune
Moss gained a reputation as the “anti-supermodel” of the early 1990s after a string of notable photoshoots. In the 1990s, towards the end of the so-called supermodel era, she achieved international fame and became a household name around the world. Dubbed the “waifish,” Moss’ body shape has been embraced by the fashion industry as a new look. Kate Moss has also been in a number of music videos and films in addition to modeling. Moss has also actively contributed to the fashion industry outside of her modeling career, launching various clothing collections, perfume brands and cosmetic products.
According to Wealthygorilla, Kate Moss’ net worth is well over $70 million. She is often regarded as one of the most influential women in the world. Moss is also one of the highest paid models in history. She claimed to have made well over $10 million in her peak years. In 2008, the British Royal Museum displayed an 18k gold statue of the fashion legend worth nearly $3 million. She was named the 99th richest woman in the UK in 2009.
Between 1994 and 1997, Kate Moss was at the peak of her fashion career when she dated Depp. In a 2012 interview with Vanity Fair, Moss opened up about her split from Depp, explaining, “There’s nobody who’s ever been able to really care for me. Johnny did for a while. I believed what he said. If I said, “What should I do?” he would tell me. And that’s what I missed when I left. I’ve really lost the measure of someone I can trust.” Meanwhile, the couple are said to have remained close even after the split. Aside from Johnny Depp, Kate Moss has been in a few other long-term relationships. She dated Dazed & Confused magazine editor Jefferson Hack in the 2000s. Moss dated Pete Doherty from 2005 to 2007. She also married Jamie Hince, a guitarist for The Kills, in 2011, but their marriage ended in divorce four years later. Moss also dated the German aristocrat Count Nikolai von Bismarck.
The news that Kate Moss is appearing in court for the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial comes after Heard revealed Moss’ name during her court appearance earlier this month. Speaking about an alleged confrontation between her sister Whitney Henriquez and Depp in 2015, Heard claimed, “Johnny hits [Henriquez]. All I see is my little sister with her back to the stairs and Johnny swings at her and I don’t even wait… I immediately think of Kate Moss and the stairs and I swing at him. In all my previous relationships with Johnny, I hadn’t had a hit. I hit him for the first time – like, actually hit him – right in the face.
How did Moss meet Depp?
Heard made the comment in response to rumors that Depp had pushed Moss down the stairs. According to The New York Post, the actress originally made the allegation during her testimony during Depp’s 2020 defamation trial. However, Moss has never responded to claims that Depp pushed her down the stairs. Heard testified in 2020, “I remembered information I had heard [that] He pushed a former girlfriend – I think it was Kate Moss – down the stairs. I had heard this rumor from two people and it was fresh in my head.” However, according to the NY Post, Heard gave Depp’s legal team the opportunity to subpoena Moss to disprove the allegation by bringing up the alleged incident. The case is nearing conclusion and Depp could testify for the third and final time in the trial.
