A clinical psyhologist who evaluated actress Amber Heard for 12 hours diagnosed her with personality disorders and a tendency to be violent with partners.
Forensic clinical psychologist Shannon Curry was hired by Johnny Depp’s legal team to testify against Heard in his defamation trial.
According to reports, Curry diagnosed Heard with borderline personality disorder (narcissism) and histrionic personality disorder.
Curry also said Heard had violent tendencies toward romantic partners.
However, Heard claimed Depp was abusive to her throughout their 2 year marriage that ended in divorce in 2017.
Depp, 58, sued publishers of British tabloid The Sun for defamation for calling him a “wife beater.” But he lost the lawsuit in England.
He then sued Heard for defamation in Fairfax County, Virginia in 2019 for an op-ed she wrote about abusive relationships.
Heard, 36, countersued Depp in August 2020, claiming that he organized a harassment campaign to get her fired from Aquaman and L’Oreal.
Heard filed to have Depp’s defamation suit dismissed, but a Virginia judge ruled against her motion. Depp’s defamation trial began on April 11, 2022.
Depp and Heard are pictured in 2015. His right hand is bandaged after allegedly punching a wall during an argument with Heard.
In 2009, Heard, a bisexual, was accused of assaulting her ex-girlfriend, photographer Tasya van Ree.
After divorcing Depp in 2017, Heard dated billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk for a year.
She is currently dating cinematographer Bianca Butti. Their daughter Oonagh Paige was born on April 8, 2021 via a surrogate.
