Amber Heard has accused her husband, Johnny Depp, of physically assaulting her, but she herself was charged with domestic violence in 2009! Amber was arrested after she allegedly got into a fight with her then-girlfriend, Tasya van Ree!
It seems Johnny Depp, 52, isn’t the only one in his marriage who has been accused of committing domestic abuse. Though Amber Heard, 30, has claimed her husband has repeatedly beat her – even providing pictures of the alleged abused – she was actually charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend, Tasya van Ree, 40!
Amber and Tasya reportedly go into an argument on September 14, 2009 at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, according to law enforcement sources and documents obtained by TMZ. Amber allegedly grabbed her then-girlfriend and hit Tasya in the arm. Amber was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence.
Her mug shot was taken and she made a court appearance over this alleged misdemeanor domestic violence charge on the next day. Amber — who was addressed as “Amber van Ree” in the audio obtained by TMZ — lucked out, as the Washington state prosecutor declined to file charges, supposedly because both Amber and Tasya lived in California. Amber was told to be careful because the state could re-file the charges up until 2011.
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Amber’s reps for comment on this arrest.
Wow. While this 2009 arrest wouldn’t really change anything if Johnny really did assault Amber, it seems to echo the statements made by security guards, Jerry Judge and Sean Bett. The men claim that, while working for Johnny and Amber, she was the violent one in the relationship. Amber “flew into rages” and reportedly ended up “screaming at [Johnny]” while throwing bottles at him!
Amber’s bisexuality reportedly caused a major rift between her and Johnny. Amber was with Tasya for four years before she started dating Johnny, and she maintained a close relationship with iO Tilley Wright, 30, an activist within the LGBTQ community. After Amber made her blood-chilling accusations of repeated physical abuse, she may have even sought out Tasya for a shoulder to cry on.
This horrible situation between Johnny and Amber is getting more and more complicated. Amber has claimed Johnny once punched a wall during a 2015 argument. Meanwhile, the concierge in Amber and Johnny’s apartment building claims that there was no evidence of any bruises on Amber’s face two days after Johnny allegedly hurled an iPhone at her head.
With Amber taking legal action against Doug Stanhope, 49, the comedian who accused her of blackmail, and Johnny being an “emotional mess,” it’s unlikely this tragedy is going to be resolved anytime soon.
