Dr. Dawn Hughes, a New-York based clinical and forensic psychologist, testified in Johnny Depp‘s defamation trial on Tuesday (May 3rd), detailing how Amber Heard was repeatedly “subjected to sexual violence” by Depp. She also said that Heard that suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of this violence.
“There are a number of incidents of sexual violence reported in this relationship. Those are documented early on … where when Mr. Depp was drunk or high. He threw her on the bed, ripped off her nightgown and tried to have sex with her,” Hughes said.
When Depp was “not able to perform” during these instances, he would become “enraged,” she said. “There were times when he forced her to give him oral sex when he was angry — these weren’t loving moments, these were angry moments.”
