The manager of Johnny Depp’s private island in the Bahamas testified on Tuesday about an alleged brawl on the island betweenIn 2015, while a forensic psychiatrist testified that Heard had borderline personality disorder and theatrical personality disorder, the civil lawsuit continues to immerse themselves in the couple’s personal issues.
Tara Roberts, who has been Al Jazeera’s manager for about 15 years, said via a video link to the court in Fairfax, Va., that Heard apparently hit Depp with a can during a fight in 2015.
“Amber was telling him he was a washed up actor,” Robert said. “He was going to die a lonely fat old man. Then I heard. You hit me with a can, I heard Johnny say, ‘You hit me with a can.’” “
Roberts testified that after the argument, Depp arrived at the nearby cafe with injuries to the bridge of his nose. Roberts said Heard tried to stop him from leaving by scratching her and that she “didn’t notice any” marks on Heard.
Depp previously said that Heard hit him on several occasions and threw things like paint cans and vodka bottles at him.
Deb Heard is suing for defamation in Fairfax County Court after she wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Post referring to herself as a “public figure representing domestic violence.” The article did not mention Depp by name, but his lawyer says the article contains “implicit libel” because it clearly refers to allegations of domestic violence heard when she filed for divorce in 2016.
Also on Tuesday, a forensic psychiatrist appointed by Depp’s legal team took the stage. Psychologist, Shannon Curry, said she reached her diagnosis within 12 hours of interviews with Heard, as well as from a review of her mental health records.
Carey also testified that Heard did not suffer from PTSD from her relationship with Depp, Heard claimed.
Depp’s team hopes Curry’s testimony will bolster their claim that Heard was the abuser in the couple’s turbulent relationship. Depp just wrapped up four days at the witness stand and testified about Heard’s “need to struggle” and her tendency to stalk and chase him during an argument when he tried to get away and disengage.
Carey said personality disorders are similar. She said borderline personality is a disease of instability “driven by an underlying fear of abandonment.” She said people with this disorder “will make desperate attempts to prevent this from happening.”
Evidence presented earlier at the trial included audio clips of Heard pleading with Depp not to leave, and to stay with her after he indicated his desire to break up or break up.
She also said that borderline personality disorder “appears to be a predictive factor for women who engage in violence against their partner.”
Carey said histrionic personality disorder is linked to “drama and shallowness” and the need to be the center of attention.
She said there is a connection between the disorder and people who are physically attractive and “take advantage of their appearance to get that attention.”
While the defamation lawsuit is supposed to focus on whether Depp was defamed in the article, most of the trial focused on the ugly details of the couple’s short marriage. Depp denied hitting Heard at all. Heard’s lawyers say Depp physically and sexually abused her and that Depp’s denial lacked merit because he was often drunk and agitated to the point of fainting.
Jurors previously heard an audio clip of a conversation between Depp and Heard that appears to be mocking him and suggesting that he would not be believed or respected if he publicly portrayed it as offensive.
“Tell them, I’m Johnny Depp, I’m a victim of domestic violence…and see how many people believe in or support you,” Heard says in the recording.
