Amber Heard is allegedly writing a tell-all book to help boost her finances after she was ordered to pay $8 million to her ex-husband Johnny Depp in a defamation suit.
He sought $50 million in damages but Heard countersued for $100 million, claiming she was the one who had been defamed.
In the end, a jury decided in Depp’s favour, finding that Heard had defamed her ex-husband with “false and defamatory” charges.
He was granted $15 million in damages, but that sum was ultimately lowered to $10.35 million owing to Virginia law.
Depp was also found guilty for defaming Heard due to allegations made by his former attorney Adam Waldman, and Heard was granted $2 million.
This still leaves her liable for more than $8 million, which Heard’s lawyers claim she is unable to pay, though it’s possible Depp will waive the damages.
In any case, the two’s feud could be reignited as a result of Heard’s recent announcement that he is publishing a memoir about their marriage.
Heard has signed a multi-million dollar agreement to write the book, according to OK! Magazine, in part, because she is “not in a position to turn down money.”
According to the report, Heard is worried that she is unlikely to land any blockbuster movie roles anytime soon, and sees the book as her career progression.
