According to Sky News, psychologist Dr. Shannon Curry claims Amber Heard suffers from histrionic personality disorder. The doctor’s testimony came as Amber Heard’s and Johnny Depp’s trial continued.

The defamation trial of Johnny Depp against Amber Heard is already in its third week. The actor is seeking $50 million in damages from his ex-wife for an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in 2018.

Heard described herself as a “public figure symbolizing domestic abuse” in the piece. Depp was not mentioned by name in the piece. The star of Pirates of the Caribbean thinks the piece harmed his career.

Heard, on the other hand, is suing for $100 million, saying that he defamed her by referring to her claims as “false” and a “sexual assault farce” via his legal team.

The court heard testimony this week from Dr. Shannon Curry, a psychologist who diagnosed Heard with histrionic personality disorder.

Psychiatrists classify personality disorders into three categories: suspicious, emotional and impulsive, and anxious.

“Most people like being offered accolades or positive feedback about their conduct,” the mental health organization Mind states of histrionic personality disorder. However, if you are overly reliant on attention or seek approval to the point where it interferes with your daily life, you may be diagnosed with histrionic personality disorder.”

People with histrionic personality disorder, according to Mind, may have following symptoms:

  • If they are not the center of attention, they become very uncomfortable.
  • They believe they are obligated to entertain others.
  • Constantly seek, or feel reliant on, other people’s approval
  • Make hasty choices
  • Flirt or act/dress provocatively to keep themselves in the spotlight.
  • Make a name for yourself as a theatrical and emotional person.
  • Allow yourself to be readily swayed by others

What did trial witness claims about Amber Heard?

Dr. Shannon Curry is a forensic and clinical psychologist with licenses in both California and Hawaii.

Shannon is a trained forensic examiner and a psychology specialist for state courts and law enforcement.

After Dr. Shannon Curry purportedly conducted an evaluation on Amber Heard, the question of histrionic personality disorder has resurfaced. In 2021, Johnny Depp’s legal team approached Dr. Curry to assess Heard’s mental health.

According to Curry, histrionic personality disorder is linked to “drama and shallowness,” as well as a need to be the center of attention, as reported by USA Today Entertainment.

According to the psychologist, the condition is linked to people who are physically attractive and “use their looks to get that attention.”

In her evidence, Curry claimed, “The results of Miss Heard’s evaluation supported two diagnoses, borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder.”
