Amber Heard’s ex Tasya van Ree says 2009 domestic violence arrest was misunderstanding

The ex-girlfriend of Amber Heard has spoken out after celebrity news website TMZ dug up old police documents which said Heard assaulted her at an airport, describing the arrest as “misinterpreted and over-sensationalised” as well as “homophobic”.

Photographer Tasya van Ree has released a statement regarding the 2009 incident, after the new information was used to discredit Heard’s current domestic violence case against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

“In 2009, Amber was wrongfully accused for an incident that was misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a power position,” the statement read.

“I recount hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which later appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends’. Charges were quickly dropped and she was released moments later.”

Van Ree, who dated Heard for five years before the actress began a relationship with Depp in 2012, added that she found it “disheartening” that Heard’s testimony of abuse was being questioned by the media again.

“It’s disheartening that Amber’s integrity and story are being questioned yet again. Amber is a brilliant, honest and beautiful woman and I have the utmost respect for her. We shared 5 wonderful years together and remain close to this day.”

According to the TMZ report published on Tuesday, Heard, 30, was arrested and charged with a domestic violence offence during an altercation at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington on September 14, 2009.

During the incident, Heard reportedly hit van Ree, 40, on the arm.

Heard and van Ree faced court the next day, although the charges against both were dropped — according to the police documents — because the women were Californian residents.

Amber Heard made headlines when she presented at the Los Angeles Superior Court with a bruised cheekbone two weeks ago, alleging her husband of 15 months, Johnny Depp, had thrown a mobile phone at her.

The court granted her a restraining order from Depp, 52, just four days after she filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences”.

The court ordered Depp to stay 100 yards from Heard.
