There came a time in my life, when my Feminist Sensibilities, no longer automatically jump to the defense of any woman who alleges that she is a victim of ‘Domestic Violence. That change came the moment I discovered that photographer Taysa Van Ree’s, ex-lover of actor Amber Heard had assaulted her during their relationship.
I began losing respect for Amber Heard when I first learn about this incident
I am Team Depp, all the way. I always have been. See, in my estimation, Amber Heard most definitely proved herself to be the opportunist I suspected she was, the moment she dumped Tasya Van Ree in order to ‘Hook Up’ with actor Johnny Depp, who she chatted on with Mega-Entrepreneur Elon Musk.
Amber Heard had been cast to co-star in the ill-fated feature film: The Rum Diaries with Johnny Depp, who claims that Amber Heard along with relatives, employees, and associates that have accused her of abuse.
According to Depp and his team, Heard had abused other girlfriends besides Van Ree as well.
Heard’s then-girlfriend, Tasya Van Ree, was reportedly physically abused by Heard in 2009 at an airport. Allegedly, Heard was in some sort of fight with Van Ree when things got violent. Reportedly, Heard struck Van Ree, and police got involved, arresting Heard.
Van Ree, like Heard’s sister, like the classic abused partner has gone on to defend Heard, saying that the police were overstepping,
“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.” Bullsh!t, one of the arresting officers is a Lesbian Activist.
Amber Heard’s former assistant has also accused her of verbal abuse.
Heard’s ex-assistant, Kate James came forward to discuss several instances where Heard was abusive towards her, as well as the toll that it took on her.
James detailed all of the things that she was tasked with doing for heard as her assistant. She allegedly did everything from laundry to caring for her dogs. According to James, being Heard’s assistant was an all-day, everyday, laborious affair where there was always something for her to do.
Reportedly, Heard was often, less-than-appreciative of James, who described some of Heard’s abusive tendencies.
In one instance, Heard allegedly screamed at James for moving some magazines into storage, “She just got very angry at me one day because I hadn’t quite made it downstairs to put them in the garage when she came home. And she went absolutely ballistic over that.”
Sometimes Heard would apparently just randomly text abuse at her assistant as well, “Barrages of abusive text messages, day and night. A lot of them in the middle of the night. I think between 2 and 4 a.m. the barrage would start that I’d wake up to. All incoherent not really making sense just basically someone to lash out at, you know? No apparent reason to it.”
James also alleges that Heard used drugs and that these might have spurred on some of her abuse.
Depp and his team have indicated that there were other, as of yet unnamed women who could testify to violent abuse from Heard.
