Psychologist Hired by Depp’s Team Testifies Celebrity Model Heard Has Personality Disorders
In the courtroom on Tuesday, Amber Heard’s demeanor was described as unstable, self-righteous, and manic by the psychologist who testified.
Celebrity model Heard underwent an assessment by a professional and forensic psychologist hired by Heard ex-husband John Depp’s legal team. The doctor said that the actress showed evidence of borderline and histrionic personality disorders, but not post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Dr. Shannon Curry, a forensic psychologist, examined all the case papers and visited Heard on December 10 and December 17, 2021, for a total of nearly 12 hours of face time. Curry claimed Heard has not one, but two probable personality disorders.
She also admitted that she had wined and dined with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor’s whole legal team at his house before the trial. Curry claimed it was an “interview” during which Depp’s staff was deciding whether to hire her or not.
A counsel for Heard asked the psychologist if she was board certified during cross-examination; Curry stated that she is not. This has raised questions about her credibility.
Tara Roberts, who manages Depp’s Bahamas island, spoke about the couple’s connection earlier in the day. She claimed she witnessed a struggle between the two during which Depp attempted to flee the scene.
During the ongoing defamation trial that actor Johnny Depp is pursuing against his ex-wife, the character assessment was harsh. The former couple’s acrimonious divorce is expected to make headlines all over the world once more, as Depp accuses Heard of defaming him in an opinion column when she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence.
On Monday (April 25), the actor testified for the fourth day in the $50 million defamation trial, telling the judge that he had he is “a victim of domestic violence.” He wrapped up his testimony amid recordings of the former couple’s furious clashes.
Depp and Heard both produced a list of potential witnesses for their respective teams ahead of the trial.
Celebrity witnesses such as Elon Musk, James Franco, and Paul Bettany are anticipated to testify in court. Billionaire entrepreneur Musk, who was romantically related to Heard, is one of the. Others include actors Franco, Bettany, and Ellen Barkin.
Bettany, a friend of Depp’s and the star of WandaVision, is set to testify about text conversations he exchanged with Depp concerning Heard. Meanwhile, Franco is anticipated to be questioned about his previous relationship with the actress. Representatives from Disney and Warner Bros. will testify, as will representatives from the ACLU and LAPD, as well as at least one nurse. Stay tuned with Robinhood News for the latest celebrity news.
