Hughes revealed that she diagnosed Amber with post traumatic stress disorder that was caused by "intimate partner violence by Mr Depp." On the other hand, Depp, 58, denies all claims of sexual and physical abuse against his ex-wife.

Dr Hughes then listed the details of the sexual assault claims, of which some were notes from Amber's therapist, Bonnie Jacobs. Dr Hughes said, "There were a number of incidents of sexual violence reported in this relationship. These are documented from early on in Dr Bonnie Jacob's notes." She added, "Where when Mr Depp was drunk or high he threw her on the bed, ripped off her night gown and tried to have sex with her. There were times when he forced her to give him oral sex, when he was angry."

The pyschology expert further explained, "These weren't in loving moment, these were angry moments, moments of dominance, moments of him trying to get control over her. There was a time when there were in a Hicksville in a trailer park where he was accusing her of a woman hitting on Amber and that was the problem. Amber got accused of women hitting on her and got accused of men hitting on her."

"But on that incident when Kelly-Sue was accused of hitting on Miss Heard and they went back into a trailer Mr Depp performed a cavity search", said Hughes. She continued, "And ostensibly was looking for drugs and felt it acceptable to rip off her night gown and stick his fingers in her vagina to look for cocaine [he] thought that Miss Heard was hiding in there. Again these incidents often happened in a drug fuelled rage."

As the expert continued to list the sexual allegations, Amber was visibly tearing up. Dr Hughes also recalled an incident of the then couple in the Bahamas where Johnny was quite upset and put his fingers "in her vagina and moved her around violently in the closet" She described this as the most severe alleged act of sexual violence. "He was beating her and chocking her and telling her I'm going to f***ing kill you, I hate you I hate you, and he grabbed a bottle that was on the bar and he penetrated her with that bottle. And Miss Heard reported to me of disassociating and going outside of her body and the only thing she was thinking was oh God I hope it isn't the broken one," said Dr Dawn Hughes.

She then said that Amber was at the risk of 'lethal domestic violence' and "Mr Depp threatened to kill her. The increase in severity of the abuse, the forced sexual activity, the choking behaviour, his obsessive jealousy. The control aspect and his threatening suicide, to kill himself. This means a woman is at risk for more serious, more lethal domestic violence."

In conclusion, Dawn said, "Even though she yelled and said some horrible things and hit him, it never was able to shift the balance of power and control in that relationship."
