Quote: “Depp’s team did the opposite with forensic psychologist Shannon Curry making an effort ‘not to render an opinion on whether either party abused the other.’ Instead, Dr. Curry revealed Heard’s borderline personality disorder and discussed the traits associated with the diagnosis… It would have benefited Heard’s team to have the star take responsibility for her angry outbursts against Depp. Had Amber acknowledged her role in the breakdown of the relationship it would have shown awareness of her own faults.”
