The British supermodel, who previously dated Depp in the 90s, will appear via video-link, according to The New York Post.

She will be a rebuttal witness for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.

It comes after Depp's team of lawyers were filmed smiling and fist-bumping after hearing Heard mention Moss' name during her testimony.

At the time, it was explained that their reaction was due to the fact that Moss could now be called to the stand and may dispel a rumour that he pushed the model down the stairs when they dated.

In her testimony, Heard had recalled an alleged fight between her and Johnny in March 2015. She admitted to hitting Depp in the face, saying she did so because he had threatened to push her sister down the stairs.

Heard said the incident had instantly made her think of "Kate Moss and the stairs".

It is believed that her testimony will come on Wednesday, just two days before the six-week-trial finishes up.

Depp is seeking $50 million in damages over an opinion piece Heard wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, in which she described being the victim of domestic violence, but did not mention Depp by name. Heard is countersuing for $100 million.
