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.

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.

London-based psychotherapist Stina Sanders explains the four stages of the Narcissistic Abuse Cycle.

Sanders, who is also a lifestyle blogger, recently had her own "dream relationship" that turned into a nightmare when her partner became abusive towards her.

Sanders appeared on This Morning to explain the stages of the Narcissistic Abuse Cycle.

Stage 1: Idolization

"So the first stage is the idolization stage, that's when they love bomb you, they put you on a pedestal, you feel amazing. You essentially fall in love very quickly, you're lured into a false sense of security."

Stage 2: Devalue

"Once they have you, that then moves on to the devalue stage, which is where the belittling, the gaslighting, the emotional, the verbal and sometimes the physical abuse will start to happen. They chip away at yourself, you become a shell of your former self."

Stage 3: Discard

"Then the third stage is the discard stage. Once they're done with you and found someone else to manipulate they then leave you, feeling very upset and very confused.

Stage 4: Hoover

"And the last stage is the hoover stage. Doesn't always happen, but this is when the abuser comes back for more. They hoover you, they see if they can still manipulate you and essentially they do that to stop you from moving on."

Sanders also said gaslighting is a "manipulation tactic" that "abusers use to basically get you to doubt yourself".

Narcissists are constantly on the lookout for more victims. If you don't present yourself as a victim you will not be an easy target for a narcissist.

A woman is accused of recruiting plus-size Black women on TikTok, then forcing them to cut themselves and call her "daddy."

Angela Vandusen, 27, of Michigan, is accused of forming a social media cult called "Daddy's Girls" in 2020 that targeted "insecure plus-sized black women". Angela reportedly encouraged the cult members to call her "daddy."

Angela gained a large following on TikTok by creating videos of herself dancing and lip-syncing provocatively.

She also shared her weight-loss journey on TikTok and other social media sites. Eventually, she expressed her fondness for BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism), in addition to her preference for BBWs - big beautiful women of color.

One former member, who asked to remain anonymous, told Rolling Stone:

"We don't fit the society's standards of what a body is supposed to look like. It was safe to be around other women – we all looked the same, had the same problems, had the same struggles.

"A lot of girls joined based off the same aspect that we could talk about things and we could all relate to each other."

As more BBW women joined her BDSM cult, Angela's dark side began to emerge. She targeted women who were insecure, submissive and willing to be dominated by her.

Several of the women have spoken out about the abuse they suffered. They say Angela forced them to cut themselves and to pull their hair out of their heads to prove their loyalty.

When Angela had around 50,000 followers, she started charging $50 for weekly livestreams. During one of the livestreams, the male-identified lesbian asked the women to only make videos about her on their pages.

Women who made videos that weren't about Angela were disciplined or lectured to by the other group members.

Over time, her livestreams became more and more sexual and her rules more strict.

"That's when I realized she's leading these girls on and making them fall in love with her," a former member told Rolling Stone.

One woman showed Rolling Stone a series of text messages from Angela, in which she said she was going to "punish" her for not answering her phone.

"You will be punished for this bulls**t. Stupid f**king b***h. You don't do jack f**king s**t, just lazy for no f**king reason," the text messages read.

A TikTok user named @auntkaren0 (left) shared a screenshot of text messages allegedly sent by Angela (right) to an ex-Daddy's Girls member encouraging her to "cut deeper" and to "pull 20 strings of hair" out of her head (see the video below).

Angela, whose TikTok username was @AngelaTheeG0ddess, has since been kicked off the platform.

She has not been charged with any crimes, but there is a Change.org petition calling for her arrest.

The petition has gained over 22,300 signatures of its 25,000 goal as of Sunday night.

Megan Thee Stallion is off the market. The 26-year-old Aquarius recently hooked up with rapper Pardison Fontaine, best known for his 2018 single "Backin' It Up" featuring Cardi B.

The internet was abuzz with rampant speculation that Megan and her new man are already fighting.

A viral video clip sparked rumors that Megan is involved in yet another abusive relationship.

In the video, a man is heard yelling at Megan to come out of a room. "Don't make me come through the door," he yelled. "Y'all got five seconds before I come through this sh*t!"

A few seconds later he tells someone to "tell Megan to come to the door."

According to bloggers, Megan and Pardison have only dated for a few weeks.

"It's unfortunate that some women don't see their own value. They are better off being single because they lack the discernment to find a good man who won't devalue them.

Do better, Megan.

Tamar Braxton has denied allegations by ex-fiancé David Adefeso that she was the abusive partner in their relationship.

Adefeso, 51, says Tamar, 43, brutally attacked him while he was driving, and nearly caused a traffic accident.

Adefeso filed for a restraining order against the singer after claiming she hauled off and punched him in the neck, which caused him to become disoriented while behind the wheel of his Rolls-Royce.

He claims she began to trash the car, damaging the camera and rearview mirror when he pulled over and parked the vehicle.

In court papers he said he suffered bruising to his neck and shoulder area, but in a clip from Tamar's sit-down interview with Tamron Hall - set to air on Wednesday, Oct. 28, Tamar denied his claims.

"I am a survivor of a domestic violence relationship," she said. "And not at any point (were) David and I in an abusive relationship."

Tamar added that audio and video recordings of the alleged incident in the car exist as she "voice-recorded it" and he "videotaped it" with a camera in his car.

"Does that video or the voice recording show any physical abuse?" Tamron asked.

"No, it doesn't," Tamar replied. "He has the videotape. He has it. It was in his car. Release it."

She became emotional as she continued:

"No, let me tell you something, I loved David. He was my best friend. He was an amazing, amazing partner. He was my son's best friend as well, they were best friends. And it's just so hard because through everything else, I never expected this from him. Now, I have to be real with myself, is he acting like this because he found me the way that he found me? Probably, I don't know."

Brown pled guilty to felony assault and had a restraining order placed on him, preventing him from seeing Rihanna.

The order was later lifted and the pair developed a "very, very close" non-abusive friendship.

Speaking about the relationship during a no-holds-barred interview on Oprah Winfrey's SuperSoul Conversations podcast, Rihanna explains: "We've been working on our friendship again. Now we're very very close friends. We've built up a trust again, and that's - we love each other and we probably always will. And that's not something we're ever going to change. That's not something you can shut off, if you've ever been in love."

She added: "I think he was the love of my life. He was the first love. And I see that he loved me the same way... it's not even about us being together. I truly love him. So the main thing for me is that he's at peace. I'm not at peace if he's a little unhappy, or he's still lonely."

When Oprah asked if Rihanna and Chris have rekindled their romance, she replied: "He's in a relationship of his own. I'm single but we have maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order has been dropped. We've just worked on it, little by little, and it has not been easy. It's not easy."

Rihanna has had difficulty maintaining a stable, healthy relationship with men including Travis Scott, Drake, A$AP Rocky, Hassan Jameel, and others.

Rihanna said mending her relationship with her father, who was abusive to her mother, allowed her to forgive Chris.

"It took me a long time, I was angry for a long time," she admits. "I felt like this is not my fault, this is not me doing this, and still I have to worry - I was resentful, I had a grudge, I was angry, I was dark. It was coming out in my music, in my clothes, in my attitude and I didn't like that feeling, it was heavy."

She continued: "I repaired my relationship with my dad. I was so angry with him, and I was just angry about a lot of things from my childhood and I couldn't separate him as a husband from him as a father. I felt like if he was a bad husband then he was a bad father. I witnessed a lot as a child. Yes he was (violent)... I remember just thinking one day, why can't I get to a place where I can let somebody in? Why can't I love? I wanted to know why. I would think, 'What is my idea of what is supposed to happen?' I wasn't having a relationship with my father anymore so I wasn't able to connect with a man past a certain point.

"The minute I was able to realize that my father was probably one of the best fathers in the world. He taught me everything. And as awful as he was to my mom at times, it didn't compare to how great he was as a father. And I had to come to terms with that. And I was able to close that gap with him. And all kinds of emotions started happening after that. All kind of things started making sense."

She concludes: "I thought I hated Chris and I realized it was love was tarnished. It looked like hate because it was ugly, angry, it was inflamed, it was tainted. And I realized that what it was is I had to forgive him because I cared about him still. And the minute I let go of that, I started living again."
