Well this certainly complicates things for Amber Heard.
On Tuesday it was revealed that, before the blonde beauty made assault allegations against her husband Johnny Depp, she was previously arrested for domestic violence against her former partner Tasya van Ree. Whoa.

Sources dished to TMZ that the Magic Mike XXL actress got into a heated argument with Miz van Ree back on September 14, 2009 at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Hmm, go on.
Reportedly, The Danish Girl star grabbed and struck Tasya in the arm — which obviously upset the artist as Amber was then arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence. Miz Heard appeared in court the day after her mug shot was taken. Oh man!
An audio snippet from the Texas native's court hearing revealed that the starlet avoided facing charges thanks to the fact the prosecutor declined to move forward with the case — since the twosome lived in California. Nonetheless, the judge warned Amber that while the case was being dismissed she was still not off the hook as the prosecutors could reconsider and refile within two years. Well, a lot more than two years have gone by, so it looks like Amber's avoided being charged altogether.
Unfortunately, this bit of news comes not long after the A-lister's estranged wife was accused of blackmailing her husband. We doubt this story is really going to help her case. Oof.
