Thompson, “I was with Kate, and I think he went straight for the romance jugular, s*** like whether I beat her enough. I probably told him, ‘Yeah, she gets a severe beating.'”Depp’s team had no comment on the 1998 Rolling Stone quote.
During trial proceedings on Monday, Heard’s team presented multiple expert witnesses, including two physicians.Dr. Richard Moore, an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hand surgeries, testified as an expert that the injuries Depp sustained to his finger after an incident in Australia were not consistent with his allegation that Heard slammed his hand with a glass vodka bottle.Dr. David Spiegel, a psychiatrist who is an expert in intimate partner violence, testified that he believes Depp showed behaviors that are consistent with both someone who has a substance use disorder as well as consistent behaviors of someone who is a perpetrator of intimate partner violence. Neither Moore nor Spiegel have ever examined or spoken with Depp. Both reviewed medical records and testimony associated with the case.Entertainment industry expert Kathryn Arnold also testified about her analysis of Depp and Heard’s respective careers.Arnold testified that she believes Heard’s op-ed did not have much of an impact on Depp’s career.”Very little,” Arnold testified. “Hardly anybody even knew the op-ed existed before he filed suit. If anybody that I know but certainly not Disney.”Arnold believes that Heard, on the other hand, has lost up to $50 million in possible earnings over the next five years due to Depp’s attorney’s statements calling Heard’s claims a hoax.Attorneys for both sides are expected to give closing statements in the case on Friday.Kate Moss will testify on Wednesday in’s against a source close to the Edward Scissorhands actor told Vulture. Moss’s upcoming testimony was first reported by the New York The source told Vulture that the British supermodel is going to testify via live video link. Her testimony stems from’s statements on the stand that alluded to a rumored domestic incident between Moss and Depp when the pair dated in the 1990s. Heard testified that she hit Depp in the face during a fight in the spring of 2015, fearing that he would throw her sister, Whitney, down the stairs. Describing the incident, Heard said on May 5 that “I don’t hesitate, don’t wait. I just, in my head, instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs, and I swung at him …” Heard had also referenced Moss during Depp’s U.K. defamation trial, at which she reportedlyhearing a rumor that he had shoved a former girlfriend — whom she believed to be Moss — down a staircase. During cross-examination on May 17, Heard was asked to explain her reference to Moss. “You thought he was going to throw your sister down the stairs like he had thrown Kate Moss down the stairs, right?” one of Depp’s attorneys said, alluding to the allegation. Heard responded, “I’ve heard a rumor, big rumor, about that.”By calling Moss as part of its rebuttal case, Depp’s legal team can try using her testimony to undermine Heard’s credibility and, potentially, provide an alternate narrative about how he has treated romantic partners. On Thursday, Heard’s team called actress to testify about a friendship and, later, brief “sexual” relationship with Depp. Barkin’s description of Depp’s behavior was not exactly flattering. Barkin said that Depp was a “jealous man” during their relationship. Depp, she claimed, accused Barkin of cheating because of a scratch on her back. Barkin said that Depp was routinely drunk and on drugs. Once, in Las Vegas, Depp lost control. “Mr. Depp threw a wine bottle across the room, the hotel room, in one instance, in Las Vegas when we were shooting Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” Barkin testified via a prerecorded video deposition. The disagreement that spurred the alleged bottle-hurling was between Depp, his assistant, and his friends, not with her. The bottle didn’t strike anyone. “I don’t know why he threw the bottle,” she testified. (Depp has Barkin’s description of bottle-throwing.) Their relationship ended not long after that.I went to go home. There was a big good-bye, crying, a lot of jealousy — ‘Don’t do this. Don’t do that,’” Barkin said. “I never heard from him again after that.” Depp and Heard have accused each other of domestic abuse. He is suing her over an op-ed in which she identifies as a victim of domestic abuse but does not use his name. Heard is pursuing a counterclaim against Depp, claiming his denials defamed her. Depp’s team is also planning on calling him back to the stand later this week as a rebuttal witness ahead of closing arguments which are expected to happen on Friday.n Amber Heard’s testimony in her defense in the $50 million defamation lawsuit filed against her by ex-husband Heard which some believe may have been a huge mistake.On the witness stand on May 5, Heard testified against Depp, recalling many instances when Depp allegedly abused her in their relationship, which ended in 2016. In one description of an argument between the two, Heard brought up Moss, who dated Depp from 1994 to 1997.Heard told the courtroom several weeks ago that Depp once tried to hit her sister,who was standing at the top of a staircase in their penthouse apartment.I don’t hesitate. I just instantly think of Kate Moss and the stairs, and I swung at him. In all my relationships to date, I hadn’t [delivered] a blow. For the first time, I hit him square in the face,” Heard said.Video footage of Depp and his legal team celebrating after Heard mentioned the model’s name quickly went viral. In the video, which was shared on by Depp’s attorney Benjamin Chew can be seen fist-pumping the air as Depp smiled and shook his head.A source close to Depp, 58, confirms to PEOPLE that the supermodel, 48, will speak to the court in Fairfax, Virginia, via video link on Wednesday.Moss, who is Depp’s ex, was referenced by Heard, 36, earlier this month during the latter’s time on the stand, while discussing an alleged altercation between Depp and Heard’s sister, Whitney HenriqThe actress said Henriquez was near a staircase “in the line of fire … trying to get Johnny to stop,” which reminded her of a rumored incident between Moss and Depp.Whitney’s] back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her,” Heard testified. “I don’t hesitate, I don’t wait — I just, in my head, instantly And I swung at him,” Heard continued of the between herself, Henriquez and Depp.
