  • On Monday, Elizabeth Holmes testified that Ramesh Balwani, her ex-boyfriend and former COO, was abusive.

  • She said he controlled when she ate and slept and “would get very angry” if she didn't listen.

  • Read the note listing Holmes' strict schedule and 15 rules she said came from Balwani, per The Verge.

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes testified during her trial that her ex-boyfriend and former Theranos COO Ramesh Balwani was emotionally and sexually abusive.

A lawyer for Balwani that attended Holmes' testimony denied the abuse allegations against his client, the Journal reported.

Among the submitted evidence was a handwritten note that details Holmes' schedule for the day, starting with a 4 a.m. wake-up and ending with a broccoli and quinoa dinner.

Beneath the schedule is a set of notes Holmes wrote for herself on apparent hotel stationery. The notes include guidelines such as “I am never a minute late,” “I show no excitement,” and “I call bullshit immediately” — rules that Holmes said came from Balwani, according to a report from The Verge.

“He told me that I didn't know what I was doing in business, that my convictions were wrong, that he was astonished by my mediocrity, and that if I followed my instincts I was going to fail,” Holmes testified, according to The Times.

Holmes' attorneys previously told Insider they planned to accuse Balwani of abuse to bolster their argument that she wasn't making her own decisions during the time prosecutors allege she was working to defraud investors and doctors.

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes' schedule appears to include working out from 4:45 am to 5:20 am and praying before breakfast.
