Kate Moss and Johnny Depp.
Kate Moss has said she felt she â€œhad to say that truthâ€ during Johnny Deppâ€™s high-profile defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Moss took the stand in March via video link to deliver a few minutes of testimony, during which she denied Heardâ€™s claim that Depp had pushed her down the stairs in the Nineties.
The model â€“ who dated Depp between 1994 and 1998 â€“ said that she did fall down a set of stairs when she and Depp were on holiday in Jamaica, and that he had helped her up at the time.
During a recent appearance on BBC Radio 4â€™s Desert Island Discs, Moss told presenter Lauren Laverne: â€œI know the truth about Johnny. I know he never kicked me down the stairs. I had to say that truth.â€
Last month, a jury found that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts and awarded him $10m (Â£8m) in compensatory damages and $5m (Â£4m) in punitive damages.
Heard was awarded $2m (Â£1.6m) in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.
At the time of her testimony, Moss recalled: â€œWe were leaving the room, Johnny left before I did, and there had been a rain storm. As I left the room, I slid down the stairs and I hurt my back.
â€œI screamed, because I didnâ€™t know what had happened to me and I was in pain. He came running back to help me and carried me back to my room, and got me medical attention.â€
Moss added that Depp â€œnever pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairsâ€.
The defence declined to cross-examine Moss.
Viewers watching the trial spotted that Depp appeared to be smiling at the screen on which he was watching Mossâ€™s testimony.
