'Depp's attorneys will be reading': Amber Heard risks ANOTHER lawsuit with rumored tell-all book
'Amber considers her career in Hollywood over. She’s already in talks and is excited about it,' said an insider
Amber Heard is in no position of paying Johnny Depp the damages he was awarded by the jury and is now reported to be in talks of writing a book that will help in boosting her income. This book will be a 'tell-all' book and Heard is not going to stay shush. After her first appearance with NBC's Savannah Guthrie was thoroughly smashed and trolled, this book will let Amber share her side of the story more freely. However, she is advised to be vigilant regarding what she shares because Johnny Depp's attorney would be ready to strike again.
A source told OK!, "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." The source explained that the 'Aquaman' actress is "broke" and is in "no position to turn down money." The claim seems possible as it was recently revealed that a major part of the screen time was cut from 'Aquaman 2' during the defamation trial.
Amber Heard is to compensate Johnny Depp with $10 million in damages and she has accepted publicly that she cannot. As previously reported, her net worth is already running in the negative and as mentioned by the source, her career, even according to her, is over. Writing this book might get her enough cash to pay back a huge chunk to Depp. However, the 36-year-old actress must be very careful in what she shares as she can once again end up defaming Johnny Depp who could easily drag her back to the court and make situations worse for her tenfold.
Writer Dror Bikel advises Heard to write carefully
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are both fresh out of the court and the time spent there is still living with them. On one hand, Depp is keeping it lowkey and attending back-to-back gigs, having $60,000 dinners, and surprising his fans with clean shaved looks. On the other hand, we have Amber Heard who has decided to open the wound once again as she went straight to the national television with Guthrie. With this new book, she could make matters worse if she isn't careful. Fellow writer Dror Bikel tells OK! Magazine that her position is fragile.
Bikel said, "The verdict in Virginia after weeks of lurid testimony was devastating to the credibility and reputation of Amber Heard. The jurors essentially found that Heard was not believable in any respects. The jurors rejected her testimony in its entirety. One juror even commented that she was not believable when she cried on the witness stand. Johnny Depp was awarded $10,0000, which is an amount of money Heard cannot pay." He continued, "To the extent that Heard wants to discuss this case and her relationship with Depp in a tell-all statement or book, she needs to be extremely careful as to what she says about him."
Can Johnny Depp sue Amber Heard again?
Bikel further explains that Johnny Depp's team is ready to strike the moment Amber Heard slips up. He continued, "Depp and his attorneys will be reading and listening to everything that Heard states. If she crosses the line, which is likely, there is no question that she will be hit with another defamation suit and end up right back in court." Yes, Johnny can once again drag heard to court as insulting/defaming someone counts as defamation. If Johnny sues Heard for libel, then the burden of proof will fall on him and his attorneys. But considering how well his legal team handled and tackled Heard in the court, it might just get easier this time around.
Previously, Camille Vasquez and Ben Chew dodged every rock thrown at them by Heard's legal team. If the actress was to stick to the testimonies that she made in the court and go ahead with the notion that she was abused by Depp, then history might repeat itself. Heard cannot miraculously appear with proof this time. One cannot win a case with mere hearsay and her comments in the upcoming book need to be careful of that.
