Johnny Depp’s lawyers were spotted fist-pumping when Amber Heard suddenly brought up Kate Moss during her testimony last week — because the name-drop has the potential to help their case.

The gesture by attorney Benjamin Chew in the Fairfax, Virginia, courtroom was a “celebratory acknowledgment,” a source close to Depp confirmed to The Post Tuesday. 

Amber mentioned an ex of Johnny’s that clearly she felt was not supportive of him, which couldn’t be further from the truth, in an apparent reference to Moss’ potential to help Depp’s case.

Legal experts explained that Heard mentioning Moss on the stand could give her ex-husband’s team the chance to dispel a rumor that he pushed the British supermodel down a flight of stairs.
