Elite Daily spoke with therapy professional Dr. Kathryn Smerling, who also watched the TMZ video. She makes it clear that it’s difficult to say whether or not Savage actually has Stockholm syndrome simply from watching the video.
But Dr. Smerling can’t deny the 21-year-old woman’s responses are very peculiar.
“The fact that she didn’t want to tell anyone where she was, she didn’t want to elaborate on anything she’s doing is very strange,” she says.
Generally speaking, it’s important to note that Stockholm syndrome is not something that is associated with a particular “type” of person.
Dr. Smerling describes Stockholm syndrome as “a truly terrifying reality.”
