It has not yet been a month since the verdict of the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard was known, but the consequences are already clear.
In the resolution, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie star won and the court ordered his ex-wife to pay a fine of nearly $15 million.
Now, Heard is about to write a book, with the profits used to pay the debt that she owes her ex-husband.
According to the British newspaper The Mirror, a source close to the actress assures that the Hollywood career of the ‘Aquaman’ actor “is over”.
In order to raise funds to pay the compensation owed is to write a book with her experience and also to narrate what happened during the trial and the fierce criticism received on social media.
“She has already started conversations for the book and is obviously excited about the topic. At this point, Amber has nothing to lose and wants to tell all,” a source told The Mirror.
The British newspaper spoke to a divorce lawyer who believes that it could provoke a new lawsuit.
According to lawyer Dror Bikel, Johnny Depp‘s legal team has already analysed one article in which Heard accused the actor of abuse and obtained a conviction without the name of the Hollywood star appearing in the text written by the actress.
Heard’s options to pay
For the lawyer, this should have served as a warning to Amber Heard and kept her away from the idea of writing a book and running the risk of being convicted again for defamation.
“Depp and his lawyers are going to read and listen to everything Heard writes and says. If she goes too far, which is very likely, there is no doubt that another defamation suit will come her way and they will end up back in court,” warns Bikel.
For him, since Heard announced that she could not afford the 10 million dollars owed, once the part Depp should pay her is deducted, the most viable option would be to file for bankruptcy.
