Psychologist hired by Johnny Depp testifies Amber Heard has personality disorder

A forensic psychologist testified Tuesday that actor Amber Heard suffers from borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder, as the civil lawsuit between her and ex-husband Johnny Depp continues to wallow in the couple’s personal issues.

Depp is suing Heard for libel in Fairfax County Circuit Court after she wrote an op-ed piece in The Washington Post referring to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” The article doesn’t mention Depp by name, but his lawyers say the article contains ”defamation by implication” because it clearly refers to allegations of domestic abuse made by Heard when she filed for divorce in 2016.

The psychologist, Shannon Curry, was hired by Depp’s legal team. She said she reached her diagnosis during 12 hours of interviews with Heard, as well as from reviewing her mental-health records.

Curry also testified that Heard does not suffer post-traumatic stress disorder from her relationship with Depp, as Heard has claimed.

Depp’s team hopes Curry’s testimony bolsters their contention that Heard was the aggressor in the couple’s troubled relationship. Depp just concluded four days on the witness stand and testified about Heard’s “need for conflict” and her tendency to hound and pursue him during arguments when he tried to walk away and disengage.

The two personality disorders are similar, Curry said. Borderline personality is a disease of instability, she said “driven by an underlying fear of abandonment.” She said people with the disorder “will make desperate attempts to prevent that from happening.”

Howard Stern had some less-than-kind things to say about Johnny Depp‘s behaviour in his ongoing, fully televised defamation trial against the actor’s ex-wife Amber Heard.On Monday’s episode of radio’s The Howard Stern Show, Stern and co-host Robin Quivers discussed the trial. Stern, 68, called Depp a “huge narcissist” and claimed he was “overacting” during his testimony.Stern hypothesized the reason for the trial being televised was Depp’s own doing.“The reason he wanted that on — he wanted it televised — is that’s what narcissists do,” said Stern.
