Part of the actor’s defense focuses on proving the star’s emotional instability. Aquamanaccompanied by substance use.
In the first place, she reviewed the state of health and previous conditions of the actress – to which she herself refers – since the moment she became her patient, among which she highlighted the emotional dependence eating disorders, attention deficit disorder and bipolarity.
In this sense, Falati said that at that time, Amber “He had experienced increased anxiety, had several outbursts of rage and his mood had been labile”, as indicated Daily mail. When Depp’s lawyers asked her to elaborate on emotional lability, she explained that it was about sudden changes in mood. “You see someone sad and they quickly transition to extreme happiness.. It’s like a pendulum and emotions revolve around it,” he said.
Later and in another comment that emerged from her notes, the former nurse said Heard told Dr. Kipper – Johnny’s personal physician – and her that “She felt anxiety about being alone every time Depp went to London to work to break a record”adding that she revealed to him that “she had a hard time dealing with jealousy and insecurity when she wasn’t in his presence”.
The star’s lawyers Pirates of the Caribbean remained incisive and delved into another entry on September 2 of the same year, when he stated that amber told him that “I felt anxiety about Depp’s fame and his interaction with other women”. He added that he remembered a “general feeling of jealousy and anxiety that surfaced over the years”.
