• Robert Downey Jr. FaceTimed Johnny Depp after the verdict of his defamation trial against Amber Heard was read
  • The "Iron Man" star reportedly told his pal he was thankful his legal battle was over
  • Depp's close friend Josh Richman claimed Kate Moss was unimpressed when Heard mentioned her during her testimony

Robert Downey Jr. is the latest celebrity to congratulate Johnny Depp for scoring a major victory in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Josh Richman, a close friend of Depp, revealed that the "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor received a call over FaceTime from the "Iron Man" star after the six-week Virginia trial concluded earlier this month, the New York Post reported.

Richman shared details about the two actors' conversation with a group of Depp supporters during a charity live stream event for Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

"John, thank God it's over," Downey reportedly told Depp.

A spokesperson for Depp confirmed to the outlet that Downey FaceTimed the "Minamata" star after the verdict was announced.

The "Fantastic Beasts" actor was "stoic" in a U.K. hotel room while his friends and staff cried and screamed around him when the verdict was read, with Depp's pal Jeff Beck even flipping off the TV screen, according to Richman.

Richman also shared that Depp had no intention of asking his ex-girlfriend Kate Moss to testify for him during the trial. However, things changed when Heard mentioned the supermodel's name during her testimony.

The notoriously private model was "pissed" and was "like, f--k this," Richman claimed. International Business Times could not independently verify this information.

"Her [Moss] goddaughter was like, 'did Johnny Depp push you down the stairs?'" Richman continued. "She was like, 'no.'"

Back in May, Heard said on the stand that she thought about a rumor that the actor had pushed the model when the "Aquaman 2" star and her sister Whitney Heard Henriquez were in an alleged altercation with Depp near a set of stairs.

"She threw herself in the line of fire. She was trying to get Johnny to stop. Her back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her. I don’t hesitate and wait - I instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs," Heard testified.

However, Moss, who dated Depp for several years in the '90s, debunked the rumor, saying that she accidentally slipped down a flight of stairs and injured her back after a rainstorm while she and the actor were in Jamaica for a vacation.

"I screamed because I didn't know what happened to me and I was in pain. [Depp] came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention," the model said under oath. "He never pushed me, kicked me or threw me down any stairs."

Depp ended up inviting Moss to see him perform alongside Beck at the Royal Albert Hall in London days before the verdict was announced. She didn't disappoint him because she was spotted at the venue. The model reportedly spent some time backstage before leaving the venue alone.

On June 1, Depp was awarded more than $10 million in damages after the jury found that Heard defamed him in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed about surviving domestic abuse.

Heard won on one counterclaim, with jurors awarding her $2 million after she argued that Depp's lawyer defamed her by calling her abuse allegations a "hoax." The actress plans to appeal the verdict, her lawyer said.
