A close friend of Amber Heard’s, artist iO Tillett Wright, has come to her defense on Twitter, calling out those who doubt Heard’s many claims of physical abuse for reasons like “but she smiled the next day!” and “but her face looked fine to me!”

In response to a TMZ story about “witnesses” not noticing bruises on Heard’s face after one of Johnny Depp’s alleged attacks, Wright wrote:


Hours after Wright’s defense, TMZ published a story revealing Heard was arrested in 2009 for domestic violence against her “then-domestic partner, Tasya van Ree.”

Reports TMZ:

According to law enforcement sources and documents, Amber and Tasya van Ree got in an argument on September 14, 2009 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Amber allegedly grabbed and struck Tasya in the arm, which upset Tasya and triggered the arrest.


The Washington prosecutor reportedly “declined to move forward with the case.”


Some dopey arsonist tried to burn down the Dash store in Los Angeles on Monday night. A man was reportedly seen throwing “a weighed, burning rag through the West Hollywood storefront window just after 11:15 PM.”


Writes TMZ:

The rag burned itself out inside the store without incident.

Serves you right, suckers! Much like Daenerys Targaryen, the Kardashians and all their businesses are immune to fire.

It’s amazing that that her neighbors/doormen remember exactly what Heard’s skin looked like on an specific day more than a week prior. And how observant they are that they were able to do a quick scan for bruises beneath makeup as she walked by. No amount of evidence she can provide would possibly compete with that kind of eye witness testimony.

I’m genuinely envious of their memories. I can’t remember what color shirt I was wearing two days ago.
