Heard & her then-girlfriend, artist/photographer Tasya van Ree, got into a fracas at the airport after Heard allegedly grabbed & struck van Ree"s arm.

Heard ended up being nicked for misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree/domestic violence, Cooper said.

Van Ree, however, says Heard was "wrongfully" accused và the incident was blown out of proportion. In a statement issued by Heard"s publicist Wednesday, van Ree said two cops "misinterpreted & over-sensationalized" the incident.

"I (recall) hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which later appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just "friends," " the statement said. "It"s disheartening that Amber"s integrity and story are being questioned yet again. Amber is a brilliant, honest và beautiful woman & I have the utmost respect for her. We shared 5 wonderful years together and remain close to lớn this day.”

Heard, 30, grabbed headlines two weeks ago when she filed for divorce và a restraining order with explosive allegations that her estranged movie-star husband, Johnny Depp, had abused her for years — including before their February 2015 marriage all the way until an alleged violent encounter on May 21 at their downtown Los Angeles loft.

Ever since, Heard and Depp, 52, have been trying to out-smear each other in the media while denying various allegations each has made in court documents và in public via their lawyers & publicists.

Depp and Heard"s divorce chaos chronicled

On Tuesday, TMZ landed with a new story that Heard had her own troubles with temper-tantrums and domestic strife.

Heard and van Ree were dating in 2009, và Heard was using van Ree"s last name. (Now van Ree is dating Caroline Vreeland, great-granddaughter of the late Vogue doyenne, Diana Vreeland.)

TMZ posted an audio purported to be recorded during the hearing. "Amber van Ree" is told by the judge that even though prosecutors were not filing charges against her, they could in the future.

Heard"s rep did not return an email seeking comment; neither did Depp"s representative.
