Amber Heard meets ex-girlfriend amid legal battle with Depp

London: Model-actress Amber Heard reunited with her ex-girlfriend Tasya Van Ree for lunch earlier this week amid her bitter legal battle with estranged husband Johnny Depp.

The 30-year-old actress was spotted tucking into lunch with Ree, whom she split from five years ago, at Republique in Los Angeles earlier this week, reported Female First.

Heard, who brought her pet Yorkshire Terrier along with her, arrived at the plush eatery five minutes after the 40-year-old photographer before spending an hour catching up over delicious grub.

The lunch date comes two months after Heard filed for divorce from Depp, 53.

She claimed in court at the time that her decision was prompted by the actor’s physical assault.

The actress was granted a temporary restraining order, which instructs Depp to remain 100 yards away from his wife at all times, although her request to ban him from seeing her pet pooch was thrown out.

The pair, who met on the set of 2011 film “The Rum Diary”, are not thought to have put a pre-nuptial agreement in place before they wed in February 2015 in Los Angeles, followed by another ceremony in the Bahamas.
