The Pirates of the Caribbean star called out Heard after Moss gave evidence on Wednesday about a much-speculated incident that was said to have taken place at the GoldenEye resort in Jamaica when the pair were dating.

Testifying via video link, Moss recalled the incident in detail and said Depp had not pushed her down stairs, he had come to her rescue.

"We were leaving the room, and Johnny left the room before I did, and there had been a rainstorm," she said.

"And as I left the room I slipped down the stairs and I hurt my back. And I screamed because I didn't know what had happened to me and I was in pain. And he (Depp) came running back to help me. And carried me to my room. And got me medical attention."

Moss’ name came up in the courtroom earlier this month during Heard’s testimony, when she described a time that Depp allegedly “[swung] at” her sister while she had her back to a staircase.

Heard said this reminded her of another incident during which she alleges Depp pushed Moss down stairs while they were dating. “I just, in my head, instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs,” she told the court.

According to The Associated Press, The Aquaman actress made the claim during Depp's 2020 libel claim against The Sun newspaper, which he lost.

The publication quoted Heard as saying: “He was about to push her down the stairs and the moment before that happened, I remembered information I had heard that he pushed a former girlfriend — I believe it was Kate Moss — down the stairs.”

Moss and Depp dated for about four years beginning in 1994.

Until her testimony, Moss had never publicly responded to Heard’s claim.

Heard’s team hit back following her testimony.

Depp returned to the stand and denied knowledge of his attorney’s defamatory statements about his ex-wife, and instead went on to slam Heard for her remarks.

Depp’s rebuttal case in the defamation trial of his ex-wife is close to concluding at the court in Fairfax, Virginia.

Depp is suing Heard for $50m over an op-ed she wrote which he believes inferred he physically and sexually abused her. Heard is counter-suing for $100m.
