British model Kate Moss, 48, who dated Johnny Depp from 1994 until 1997 (left: pictured together), is set to appear at the actor's defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard (right) on Wednesday. The famously-private model, who rarely discusses her personal life, will be testifying publicly in support of Depp and is expected to shut down Heard's claim that the 58-year-old pushed Moss down the stairs. A source familiar with the case told the New York Post that Moss will talk about an incident when she 'was walking down some stairs in Jamaica. She was wearing flip flips and she slipped on the last two stairs. Johnny caught her and tended to her.' Heard had brought up the model in her testimony earlier this month, saying she felt connected to Moss due to a rumor that Depp pushed her down the stairs when they were dating back in the 1990s. But by mentioning the alleged misconduct, Heard inadvertently allowed Depp's lawyers to call her as a witness to discuss the rumor, which sources say is not true. In fact, after Heard brought up the allegation, Depp's legal team could be seen fist bumping and celebrating.
