Amber Heard reportedly in talks to write book

The actress apparently ‘considers her career in Hollywood over’

Amber Heard is reportedly in talks to write a tell-all book following her defamation trial with Johnny Depp.

Earlier this month, a jury in Fairfax County, Virginia, ruled that Heard defamed Depp by publishing a piece about being a sexual assault survivor in the Washington Post, which his team argued implied he abused Heard during their relationship

The jury awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. The punitive damages amount was later reduced to $350,000 in keeping with Virginia law.

Heard had herself countersued for $100m on three counts of defamation. The jury found she was defamed on one of these counts through Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman. She was awarded $2m in compensatory damages.

The ruling brought an end to the bitter and protracted trial which took place over six weeks, although Heard’s legal team have claimed that she cannot pay the damages required and that they are planning on appealing the verdict.

And Heard apparently feels there is more for her to say, with an “insider” claiming that she is in discussions to pen a book.

They told OK! Magazine: “Amber considers her career in Hollywood over. She’s already in talks and is excited about it.

“At this point, she has nothing to lose and wants to tell all.”

Heard recently appeared in an interview with Dateline in which she said she was still scared to speak out about her alleged abuse over fears that she would be taken to court once more by Depp.

She said: “I took for granted what I assumed was my right to speak.

“I am scared that, no matter what I do, no matter what I say or how I say it, every step that I take will present another opportunity for silencing, which I guess is what a defamation lawsuit is meant to do – it is meant to take your voice.”
