Tasya and her former girlfriend Amber began their relationship in 2008. The pair also had a "secret marriage" the March of the same year. 

They entered into a legally binding domestic partnership, following which Amber changed her name from Amber Heard to Amber Van Ree. However, they only celebrated their relationship publicly in 2011. The ceremony was held in New York after gay marriage was legalized in the USA.

Amber Heard's Arrest

On 14 September 2009, Port of Seattle Police arrested Tasya's former girlfriend, Amber Heard, following domestic abuse accusations. According to a June 2016 report on USA Today, Tasya and Amber got into a rift at Seattle Tacoma International Airport. There, Amber supposedly struck Tasya'a arm leading to her arrest.

However, according to Tanya, Amber's arrest was a mistake by the authorities. The police officials who were present during the incident at the airport misjudged the situation and wrongfully took her into custody.

The day after the arrest, on 15 September 2009, Tasya refused to press any legal charges and stood to support Amber. Moreover, she expressed her sadness regarding the incident in a statement that read,

"It's disheartening that Amber's integrity and story are being questioned yet again. Amber is a brilliant, honest, and beautiful woman, and I have the utmost respect for her. We shared 5 wonderful years together and remain close to this day."
