Did Amber Heard Really Abuse Her Ex-Girlfriend, Tasya Van Ree?
“Several people who have been in a relationship with Ms. Heard have come forward to tell their personal experiences of severe violence and other abuse at the hands of Ms. Heard,” Depp claimed during the defamation trial. Following an altercation at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in 2009, Heard was arrested but not prosecuted with domestic assault against Van Ree.
However, the photographer stated in 2016 that the actress’ actions had been “misinterpreted.”
“Amber was wrongly implicated for an encounter that was misconstrued and sensationalized by two people in positions of authority,” Van Ree told Us Weekly. “When they discovered out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends,’ I recall hints of misogynistic views toward us that subsequently turned homophobic.
The charges against her were immediately dropped, and she was released shortly after.” While there isn’t enough proof to show Heard’s guilt in their reported fight, supporters feel it’s related to her alleged abuse of Depp.
Ireland Baldwin, Alec Baldwin’s daughter, chimed in. “I know women who are just like this.
They are cold and manipulative, and they exploit their femininity to play the victim and turn the world against males because we live in a society where it is acceptable to claim that men are all bad and blah blah f***ity blah “On her Instagram post, Baldwin added.
“Men may be abused as well, and Amber Heard is a nasty person. I hope Johnny regains his reputation as well as his life.”
