Intimate partner violence expert summoned to testify in defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp Amber Heard He testified that her evaluation of the actor revealed two psychiatric diagnoses – borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder.

Shannon Curry, Depp’s witness, said the diagnosis came from examining Heard’s previous psychiatric assessments, along with direct examination on two occasions, and participation in the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), a court in Alexandria, VirginiaI heard on Tuesday.

Carey said Heard, 36, showed off a “reactive” and “hyper-dramatic” show and used words like “magical” and “awesome” to describe the events. She said, I heard, switching between “the princess and the victim.”

Complicated and “nice and girls” like these guys, Carey said, they “may actually be very disruptive”, “dramatic, erratic and unpredictable” and have a “primary drive not to let go but also to be the center of attention”.

Curry said BPD is an unstable personality, alert to rejection, with little access to self-regulation and is characterized by “a lot of anger and cruelty toward people of less power, an image concern, attention seeking, a tendency to blame outsiders, a lot” of pent-up anger that It might explode outward.”

Carey said that anyone attempting an intimate relationship with such a character would likely go from “idol to trash”. She added that it was customary for Frontier characters to be “aggressive as partners. They would make threats to use the legal system, threaten to file a restraining order, and allege abuse.”

The doctor referred to Raquel Pennington, a mixed martial artist and friend of Heard. Heard allegedly punched Bennington, who was living rent-free in the Doub-Heard penthouse complex, on a shopping trip. Carey said that people with borderline personalities can quickly devalue friends.

The testimony of Heard’s forensic psychological evaluation – which the defendant was supposed to agree to air in court – came during the ninth day of the trial in which Depp is suing his ex-wife for defamation after she wrote an article describing herself as a survivor of domestic violence during their marriage. Depp, 58, alleges Heard abused him.

Witnesses recall and investigate the couple’s differences for their observations of the dynamics of the relationship in which they were based, with each party trying to prove to the jury the possibility of their version of events.

Earlier Tuesday, Tara Roberts, the manager of Depp’s residence on an island in the Exuma chain in the Bahamas, testified that she witnessed a feud between the couple in which “Amber was telling him he was a washed up actor who was going to die a fat, lonely old man.”

Moments later, when Depp tried to leave, Heard was seen “embracing and kissing” the actor while his wife was “begging him to come back”. Roberts said Depp “stood there with his arms at his side. He didn’t do anything.” She said she later noticed Depp had “a mark on the bridge of his nose.”

The housekeeper suspected she had ever seen Depp “drunken unconscious” but admitted that he had once fallen from a hammock and was found lying under it. Roberts said she then arranged for Heard and Depp’s children, Lily-Rose and Jack, to leave the island.

Throughout the trial, the jury heard from a number of medical and mental health professionals.

Heard claimed that she suffers from PTSD as a result of the alleged abuse she experienced from Depp. But on Tuesday afternoon, Carey claimed PTSD is one of the easiest psychological conditions to fake.

The trial is continuing.
