Kate Moss and Johnny Depp met in 1994 at a restaurant in New York.
The pair had a passionate relationship for four years before breaking up.

1994: Johnny Depp and Kate Moss met at New York's Café Tabac, according to a former Vanity Fair writer.
Kate Moss and Johnny Depp were introduced to each other in a New York restaurant in 1994.
George Wayne, a former Vanity Fair writer, told The Face in 2019 that he was the one that brought Moss to meet Depp at Café Ta bac.
"So, Kate walks in with Naomi," he said, referring to fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell. "They walked into this...room and Johnny Depp was sitting at the back of the restaurant having dinner with a few friends. I grabbed Kate's hand and I said, 'Come. I'm taking you right now. I want you to meet Johnny.' I just grabbed her hand and took her back there."
He continued: "I said, 'Kate, this is Johnny. Johnny, this is Kate.' And that was the end of it. I didn't think they would go on to destroy five-star hotel rooms across the globe for the next two years. But that's what happened. I just wanted to, you know, cause a little drama."
People reported that Moss once said about meeting Depp: "I knew from the first moment we talked that we were going to be together."

"They don't really know anything," she said. "They just presume all these allegations."
Depp added: "It makes for really good fiction. They write some really interesting stories."
Roslin then asked the couple if it was "hard" to keep their relationship going while being celebrities.
Moss immediately replied: "No."
However, Depp was silent for a moment prompting the British model to say: "Johnny."
Depp then said: "No, no. No."
1997: The pair called off their relationship
Multiple outlets reported that the pair split up at some point in 1997.
Depp told Hello Magazine in an 1998 interview that he took responsibility for the end of their relationship.
"I was difficult to get on with. I let my work get in the way and I didn't give her the attention I should have done," he said.
"The whole thing was crazy because I should never have got so worked up over what people had to say about my work," Depp added at the time. "Sure, I should care about my movies but when I get home, I should try to leave that stuff behind. I couldn't do that, and I was horrific to live with. Trust me, I'm a total moron sometimes."

"She's super sharp, really smart and...got a great heart," Depp said of Moss. "She's a good mum, and she just happens to be human, and the press wouldn't allow that, and that's unforgivable."

"I believed what he said," Moss told Vanity fair. "Like if I said, 'What do I do?' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust."

2022: Moss testifies in Depp's ongoing defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard where she defended him.
Moss took the stand in May during Depp's trial against Amber Heard, testifying that Depp had never pushed her down a flight of stairs — a rumor brought up earlier in the trial by Heard on the stand.
During Moss's testimony, she said that she slipped on the stairs at a Jamaican resort when she and Depp were dating, and hurt herself.
"I screamed because I didn't know what had happened to me, and I was in pain," Moss testified, Insider previously reported. "And he came running back to help me and carried me to my room and got me medical attention."
"He never pushed me, kicked me, or threw me down any stairs," Moss said during her testimony.
Moss, as Insider reported, was not on the original list of witnesses that Depp's lawyers submitted to the court. However, his lawyers reserved the right to call any witnesses that Heard identified, or "any witness necessary for rebuttal or impeachment."
Heard mentioned Moss earlier in the trial. She said that she thought of Moss during a fight with Depp on a flight of stairs, in which she said that she punched Depp in self-defense.
"I don't hesitate. I don't wait. I instantly think of Kate Moss and the stairs, and I swung at him," Moss said in court, referencing a rumor that her ex-husband had once pushed Moss down the stairs.
