Amber Heard's Nurse Says That She Was Jealous Of Johnny Depp's Fame

Erin Falati, also known as Erin Boerum, is Amber Heard's former nurse. She gave a video deposition in Virginia court on May 3, during the Depp vs. Heard defamation trial.

Falati went through her notes, which had "reports history of substance abuse including an addiction to cocaine and liquor."

Among the notes, Erin revealed to the jury that Amber had a "Familial history of substance abuse, both mother and father have abused and become dependent on stimulants."

She added:

"Client admits to a history of anxiety, eating disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, bipolar disorder, codependence issues, and occasional insomnia."

"Client identifies as bisexual and was married to a female partner prior to the current relationship."

The notes add that Heard had been "experiencing increased agitation recently and has had several outbursts of anger and rage. Her mood has been labile."

When Depp's lawyer asked Falati to explain what "labile" means, she said Falati said:

"Emotional lability is when emotions spin on a pendulum, you see someone sad and quickly transition to extreme happiness, it's like a pendulum."

This was the first testimony after Judge Azcarate denied the request of Amber's lawyers to dismiss the case.

Falati claimed that she felt as if Heard was acting during the treatment in her testimony. She further said:

"Client expressed concern to husband and Dr. Kipper (Depp's personal doctor) she is nervous about being alone while husband is working (on a movie set in London) and expressed she has difficulty dealing with feelings of insecurity and jealousy when not in the presence of her husband."

A note from August 29, 2014, said that over dinner, Heard spoke about her "confusion" because she thought Depp wanted her to "eliminate her acting career" and stay home.

However, Falati does not recall whether Depp wanted Amber to stop acting, saying she did not get that sentiment.

In her medical notes from September 2, 2014, Falati wrote that Heard expressed "difficulty with jealousy issues and anxiety around fiance's fame and ability to interact with females often."

Falati told the court she recalled a "general sense of jealousy and anxiety issues cropping up over the years."

In the medical notes from September 4, 2014, Falati wrote that at dinner, Heard became "frustrated" with the wait staff over a miscommunication.

Heard calmly repeated herself, which caused Falati to reflect on her "change in coping mechanism" as previously, Heard's coping skills involved "anger and yelling."

On March 25, 2015, Falati wrote that Heard was "concerned about the ability to trust fiance following argument" two days before.

Explaining Amber's feelings, Falati recalled the actress had allegedly had a "generalized memory of there being jealousy and anxiety issues including mistrust within the relationship."

Falati attended Heard's 30th birthday at the LA penthouse on April 21, 2016. Allegedly, Heard became angry because Depp was late.

The notes of the evening state that "Heard appears to laugh and smile when talking to friends, but the mood turns depressed and affect flat when she is alone or talking with friend Rocky."

The actress allegedly said, "I can't believe (Depp) isn't here yet. He keeps saying he is on his way, but he still hasn't shown up."

Depp came in around 10:15 pm, after a two-hour meeting with his accountants. Amber and her friends went to the Coachella music festival the following day.

A note from May 11, 2016, says:

"Client admits to illicit drug use, and states she ingested mushrooms and MDMA simultaneously and vomited, and was 'high for at least 24 hours straight.'"

Further, it said that Falati "reminded the client that illicit drug use will not be tolerated by medical staff and that any medications or drugs that are not prescribed can cause adverse effects with her prescribed medication."

It continued:

"Client laughed and also reported using illicit drugs (mushrooms and MDMA) on March 9 at home with a high profile male acquaintance. Client reported that her husband was not aware of the male visitor, not her illicit drug use."

Falati said that Amber previously spoke about using drugs when they first met.

Asked if Heard ever spoke about her substance use before, Falati said she did when they first met.

Before resting their case, Depp's attorney, Ben Chew, told the court:

"Witness after witness has testified that Miss Heard, far from being a figure representing domestic violence, is, in fact, a recidivist perpetrator of domestic violence on Mr. Depp and others."

Rottenborn, Amber Heard's lawyer, responded by saying:

"She's not the abuser. She and her witnesses will put on even more evidence she suffered at the hands of Mr. Depp."

In the meantime, Depp's supporters from across the world are calling for Aquaman 2 to remove Amber from the upcoming movie.

Amber starred as Mera in the original film in 2018 alongside Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman. The petition to have her replaced reached over three million signatures.

Though her screen time is limited to less than 10 minutes, Depp supporters are upset since the actor lost two franchise roles after the divorce from Heard. One fan tweeted:

"I will not be going to view Aquaman 2 movie if Amber is playing the role. I love Jason Momoa, I can't support a project that fires the victim and kept the abuser in their films."

Another wrote:

"I don't care if Amber Heard's Aquaman 2 screen time is reduced to 10min. I won't watch it until they reduce it to 0."

Today, Amber Heard took the stand.
