Psychologist claims Amber Heard has personality disorders

“Heard displayed traits like passive-aggressive and self-indulgent behaviour.”

A psychologist has claimed Amber Heard has multiple personality disorders.

During Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Heard, the doctor said she had traits of numerous disorders.

However, she stressed that she does not have PTSD.

Speaking in court, Doctor Shannon Curry said Heard displayed signs of two disorders, borderline and histrionic personality disorders.

She was asked to “provide a psychological evaluation of Ms. Heard”.

However, she did not have to conduct a psychological evaluation of Mr. Depp.

Dr. Curry met with Heard on two separate days in December 2021. They spent over 12 hours together. The doctor also analysed case documents, Heard’s medical records, audio recordings, videos, and photos.

She also reviewed multiple witness statements before concluding that Heard has personality disorders.

“The results of Ms. Heard’s evaluation supported two diagnoses: borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder,” she told the court.

“One of the main tests I used were consistent with those diagnoses, which was consistent with her records and her self report.”

Dr. Curry explained to the court that Ms. Heard was “the code 36 type”.

She said she has a lot of cruelty, very concerned with their image, very attention-seeking, and prone to externalising blame to a point where it’s unclear whether they can admit to themselves they have certain responsibilities.”

She also said people like this are hostile, controlling, self-righteous, and judge others critically.

They also have a lot of inner anger and rage, which can explode at times.

The doctor continued to confirm that Heard displayed traits like “passive-aggressive behaviour and self-indulgent and self-centered behaviour.

Other traits include being manipulative; needy as well as needing approval.

The high-profile hearing is set to last for six weeks.
