A psychologist hired by Johnny Depp’s attorneys said Tuesday that Amber Heard suffers from personality disorders during the trial due to the actor’s defamation right against his ex-wife.
Shannon Curry, a clinical and forensic psychologist, said she personally analyzed Amber Heard’s mental health for 12 hours over two days in December 2021. She estimates the 36-year-old actress suffers from limited personality disorder (“borderline”). and histrionic disorder.
Amber Heard’s attorneys tried to denigrate this testimony during the cross-examination, noting that Depp’s attorneys had hired him to testify on his behalf.
According to the psychologist, some of the main features of borderline personality disorder are “a lot of internal anger and hostility,” a tendency to be “moralistic” and “varying moods”.
“They can react violently, physically,” the professional added.
“Often they are violent towards their partners. It’s almost an act,” he pointed out.
Shannon Curry, who has experience with U.S. war veterans, said she thought Amber did not suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the alleged domestic violence.
Johnny Depp, 58, denied having physically assaulted Amber Heard, claiming he was violent towards him.
Tara Roberts, who has run Depp-owned private island in the Bahamas for the past 15 years, also testified on Tuesday. The actor’s lawyers asked him to share details of the controversy the couple had on the island.
“Amber told her she was a failed actress,” Tara said. That “he would die as an old man alone.”
The employee said Amber Heard shouted at Depp, grabbed him and tried to get him back home. The witness said he was worried about what might happen and that he took the actor to the kitchen, where he spread ice on the injured actor’s nose.
In another injurious statement, Los Angeles police Melissa Saenz, who went with her colleague to the actor’s apartment in response to a report on May 21, 2016, also testified that the actor was not a victim of domestic violence.
Police, who said they have to react to many cases like this every day and there would be as many as 100 in May 2016, said the imprints on the actor’s face corresponded to what happens with crying and not beating. knife, cell phone, as claimed.
