JOHNNY DEPP: Psychologist Says Amber Heard Suffers From Borderline Personality

Written by on April 27, 2022

A psychologist for Johnny Depp’s defense said on Tuesday Amber Heard suffers from borderline personality disorder.

Dr. Shannon Curry, a licensed clinical psychologist, testified that she believes Depp’s ex-wife “demonstrates psychological symptoms of combined borderline personality disorder (BPD) and histrionic personality disorder.”

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, “Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that severely impacts a person’s ability to regulate their emotions.” And histrionic personality disorder is defined by the American Psychiatric Association “as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive attention-seeking behaviors, usually beginning in early childhood, including inappropriate seduction and an excessive desire for approval.”

Dr. Curry said she based her evaluation on case materials provided by Depp’s attorneys as well as two interviews with Heard.

The psychologist also said Heard had “grossly exaggerated” symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder because of her hostile relationship with Depp.
