FAIRFAX, Va. – Actress Amber Heard struggled with anxiety, insecurity and substance abuse – and was jealous of Johnny Depp’s fame, her former nurse testified at the couple’s defamation trial on Tuesday.
Private nurse Erin Falati also said Heard, 36, told her she had a history of bipolar disorder, ADHD, codependency and insomnia during her tumultuous marriage to Depp.
“I have a general memory of … jealousy and anxiety issues, including distrust within the relationship,” Falati testified. “I have a vague idea that these issues have cropped up over the years, but I wouldn’t say it’s been a constant theme.”
Falati testified in pre-recorded video testimony at the trial stemming from Depp’s $50 million lawsuit, in which he claimed Heard’s allegations of abuse against him hurt his career, with the trial now in its 13th day.
Falati, who also goes by the name Erin Boerum, was a private nurse hired to examine Heard from 2014 — and described the actress as “excited” and “screaming” in her notes.
The nurse’s notes also cite a history of substance abuse, “including an addiction to cocaine and alcohol,” and said Heard “reports that she drinks 1-3 glasses of red wine a day.”
“[Heard] reports [a] Family history of substance abuse,” the notes read. “Both mother and father have abused stimulants (methamphetamine), opiates and alcohol and become dependent.”
In one instance, Falati writes that Heard “reports [a] History of substance abuse, including addiction to cocaine and alcohol.”
Heard also told the nurse that she was jealous of Depp and felt he wasn’t supportive.
Depp, 58, is suing Heard for $50 million, alleging her allegations that he was abusive to him seriously damaged his career and cost him more than $40 million in revenue.
Heard’s attorneys say the actor’s own demons, not Heard’s allegations, cost him his role in the Disney film series Pirates of the Caribbean and other jobs.
