1. Kate Moss denies Johnny Depp pushed her down the stairs

Kate Moss was brought into the seemingly never-ending Johnny Depp defamation trial to deny some rumors about their relationship. Depp's legal team called Moss, who dated the Pirates of the Caribbean star in the '90s, for brief testimony, during which she disputed claims that he once pushed her down the stairs. Instead, she testified that while they were in Jamaica, she slipped and fell down the stairs, and Depp "came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention." During testimony in a previous U.K. trial, Depp's ex-wife Amber Heard said she heard a rumor that he "pushed a former girlfriend — I believe it was Kate Moss — down the stairs," and while testifying in the U.S. trial, she again referenced this. "I just instantly think of Kate Moss and the stairs," Heard recounted — and when Moss was mentioned, Depp's lawyer was seen literally fist-pumping in the courtroom.
