This Depp v. Heard trial has been entertaining, to say the least. It got a little spicier when Norfolk, Virginia-based psychiatrist, Dr. David Spiegel of Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) testified in the trial. He went on record saying Depp's behavior is consistent with someone with a substance use disorder, as well as a perpetrator of intimate partner violence (IPV). He also noted he sees traits of Narcissistic Personality Disorder in Depp.
Dr. Spiegel's online reviews are now in shambles from Depp fans and others who watched the nearly hour-long testimony.

Depp for $100 million, saying he defamed her when his lawyer told the press she had made up the abuse allegations.
