    A recorded statement by the medic was played in court in Virginia on Thursday. Blaustein gave an insight into his work with Depp, but also into the inner life of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star. He spoke of “anger and jealousy” that Depp felt. “It was a very chaotic relationship with a lot of ups and downs. A lot of difficulties, emotional expressions,” he said. “Lots of anger on both sides and high intensity. Lots of love, lots of disappointment, lots of fears,” Blaustein explained.

    According to the psychologist, Depp wanted to work on the anger he felt towards Heard. In his statement, he also revealed that the actor is said to have felt similar feelings in other relationships. In particular, his strong jealousy was a topic of therapy.

    traumatic childhood

    One important aspect he mentioned is Depp’s traumatic childhood. Already on the witness stand, the American had remembered how his own mother became violent and his father was often the victim of her outbursts. “The relationship that he was in reminded him of his relationship with his psychotic sister and his mother,” Blaustein told the court, recalling Depp calling Heard a “nuisance”. He also mentioned Depp’s reluctance to remarry. The actor is said to have said that he didn’t know if he “shouldn’t marry at the age of 51”.

    “His drug use, his turn to drugs helped him alleviate the psychological pain he was experiencing,” he said, noting that Depp had used marijuana, alcohol and opiates. Attempts to get him off the drugs were unsuccessful. “Paranoia, fear, envy” were also feelings that his famous patient had to struggle with.

    Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation trial is expected to end on May 27.
