Following a gruelling six weeks in court during the defamation trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, Amber Heard is reportedly going to dish on her tumultuous marriage in a tell-all book.
According to OK! Magazine, the actress has “nothing to lose” and needs to pay off her damages to Depp after losing in the highly publicised trial.
AMBER HEARD READY TO INK BOOK DEAL
A source told the publication that the Aquaman actress is reportedly ready to dish in what is described as a “revenge” book.
“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,” a source described as an “insider” said.
The insider also revealed that Amber is “broke” and is not in a position to turn down money.
At the weekend, the actress and her sister Whitney Henriquez was spotted shopping at a discount store in the Hamptons, leading fans to believe that she is indeed “broke” — TMZ, reported.

BOOK COULD LEAD TO ANOTHER DEFAMATION CASE
While Heard’s book deal will help her pay damages to the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, an expert told OK! Magazine that she could face another lawsuit if she defames Depp’s name again.
“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 respect. 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,” Dror Bikel said.
Last week, an entertainment lawyer also told the Daily Mail that Depp has grounds to sue for defamation for the third time. This came after Heard “republished” claims that the 59-year-old actor physically abused her. Heard told Savannah Guthrie during her sit-down interview on the Today show on NBC, that she stands by her every word.
