The Aquaman actress told the jury on May 5 that the only time she was “beaten” was during an altercation with Depp over his alleged infidelity in March 2015, when she thought he was about to push her sister down the stairs.

“I don’t hesitate. I don’t wait. I immediately think of Kate Moss and the stairs, and I swung toward him,” shouted Heard, referring to a rumor that Depp once pushed the model, whom he dated in the ’90s, down a staircase.

Deep’s attorney, Ben Qiu, opened his mouth wide and his eyes lit up with an expression of dazed astonishment, as he turned to his side and made a fist. Deep, seated next to Qiu, looked at the plaintiff’s table and smiled widely.

Depp Heard is suing for $50 million in Fairfax County, Virginia over a 2018 op-ed she wrote identifying herself as a victim of domestic violence, which he says destroyed his reputation and career.

In a $100 million counterclaim, Heard alleges that her ex-husband conspired with his ex-lawyer to defame her by calling her abuse allegations a hoax.

Manhattan civil attorney Roland Acevedo described dropping the model’s name as an obvious mistake that could “explode in her face.”

“It certainly could open the door to contact with Kate Moss,” Acevedo said. “It’s an occasional case that the courts don’t usually let you bring in, but since the defense opened the door and said he did, they might now be able to call her in to prove that it never happened. And this might explode in her face.”

Virginia-based civil attorney Broderick Dunn agreed with Acevedo. “I think it’s definitely something Johnny Depp’s lawyers are going to explore now,” he said. It wasn’t the reference to the moss that might have landed in the hot water. During Heard’s testimony, she recounted the first time Depp hit her in 2013.

She testified, “I knew you couldn’t hit a woman. I knew you couldn’t hit a man.”

This statement may allow Depp’s team to question Heard about her 2009 arrest for allegedly beating her ex-girlfriend, Tasya Van Ree, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

She was charged with a misdemeanor of domestic violence for allegedly snatching Van Rey’s contract and hitting her in the arm, but prosecutors refused to proceed with the case, according to Depp’s lawsuit.

Dan said the domestic violence incident may now surface. “If Amber Heard says she ‘knows she can’t hit a woman’ and if she is accused of doing exactly that, that opens the door for Depp’s team to try to provide evidence of any previous assaults,” Dunn said.

After the photo of Heard’s face surfaced, the actress claimed she was arrested on a “fabricated” charge because the cops were misogynistic and homophobic.

“She was a woman and a lesbian activist, who said so publicly after Ms Heard publicly disparaged her,” Depp’s lawyers wrote the lawsuit.

“You can set up a witness so it’s blue in your face,” Acevedo added, and these blunders still happen.

“Maybe they told her 10 times not to mention Kate Moss, but it gets emotional on the stage and it’s not easy to testify,” he said.

The trial was on a previously scheduled respite this week but is set to resume on Monday with Heard back in the witness box.
