Model Kate Moss is expected to be called to the stand this week in Johnny Depp’s bombshell defamation trial against Amber Heard

The British fashion icon, 48, will testify via video link on Wednesday  in the Fairfax, Virginia, courtroom, sources with knowledge said.

Depp’s lawyers were spotted fist-pumping a few weeks back when Heard, 36, suddenly brought up Moss during her testimony.

Legal experts explained at the time that Heard mentioning Moss on the  stand could give her ex-husband’s team the chance to dispel a rumor...

that he pushed the  supermodel down a flight of stairs when the two dated in the 1990s.

Moss was in a relationship with Depp between 1994 and 1997, and, according to sources, has always been supportive of the actor.
