From 2008 to 2012, Amber Heard was in a romantic relationship with one of the entertainment industry personalities and photographer named Tasya van Ree. The relationship became so serious that Heard legally changed her last name to van Ree, but later reverted to her birth name in 2014.
Later in 2009, Heard was arrested for domestic violence after she was caught punching and grabbing van Ree, but she was never charged with assault.
Heard’s arrest became public knowledge over time, and in 2016 it progressed to another affair involving Johnny Depp, in which van Ree came to make a statement that Heard had been wrongly accused. Following her divorce from Johnny Depp, Heard dated tech entrepreneur Elon Musk for a year until early 2018.
Heard appeared to have one child through surrogacy, and the child was born in April 2021, the month of birth of Heard himself. The child was named Oonagh Paige Heard.
Heard married fellow actor Johnny Depp and maintained the relationship from 2015 to 2017. They decided to separate and filed for divorce, which attracted a lot of attention from common people.
Heard revealed their relationship was one of the most abusive relationships she’s even had in her life and it allegedly backfired in 2018 when Depp claimed Heard had abused him before unsuccessfully suing the editors of British tabloid The Sun for English defamation sued. Describing himself as a victim of domestic violence, Depp said men can be victims too, and came forward to talk about his early relationship with Heard.
Both personalities got their trial on April 11, 2022 in Virginia, where Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber are in the middle of the $100 million defamation lawsuit.
