Actress Amber Heard is reportedly considering writing an explosive tell-all memoir about her turbulent two-year marriage to Johnny Depp and their bitter court battle. Sources claim Heard would be looking for around $15 million for her story, but is ready to speak out after being harassed online during last year’s trial. Meanwhile, one of Depp’s lawyers, Camille Vasquez, has admitted she has thought about writing a book, in part about the legal battle, but stressed there’s “nothing in the works at the moment”. Vasquez and the rest of Depp’s legal team have “often” been in touch with the actor since the trial and are planning to attend one of his Hollywood Vampires gigs later this summer.
As covered by WFMZ, Amber Heard is reportedly considering writing an autobiography. The actress, known for her role in “The Danish Girl,” is said to be ready to share her truth with an explosive tell-all memoir. In the book, she would lay bare the details of her turbulent two-year marriage to Johnny Depp and their bitter court battle after he successfully sued her for defamation over an op-ed she wrote about being a victim of domestic abuse.
Sources told RadarOnline.com that the 37-year-old actress, who is currently living in Madrid, Spain, with her two-year-old daughter Oonagh, would be looking for around $15 million for her story. However, she is ready to speak out after being harassed online during last year’s trial. The insider said, “She won’t be silenced. She feels she was treated very badly during the trial. She feels like she’s the victim here.”
Meanwhile, Camille Vasquez, one of Johnny Depp’s lawyers for the trial, recently admitted she has thought about writing a book, in part about the legal battle, but stressed there’s “nothing in the works at the moment.” She told People magazine, “We’ve thought about that. Ben [Chew, co-counsel] and I have joked that we should write a book together, maybe about the trial. I feel like my story is maybe half written. I feel like there’s still a lot left to do. While the trial was a significant portion of my career … the real story about who I am and my path, there’s still more to be written and to be done. I do have a title in mind. Maybe one day.”
Camille and the rest of Johnny’s legal team have “often” been in touch with the 59-year-old actor since the trial and are planning to attend one of his Hollywood Vampires gigs later this summer. She said, “The last time I spoke to [Johnny] on the phone was probably a few months ago, but we text often. There’s a group of us that texts with him and we send emails, obviously congratulating him on the success that he’s had in the last year. He has a big birthday coming up, so I’m sure he’ll be celebrating — foot up because, as you’ve seen, probably, reported in the news, unfortunately our guy got a fracture in, I believe, his ankle.”
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s marriage was plagued with controversy, with allegations of domestic abuse and substance abuse. The couple divorced in 2017, and Amber Heard went on to write an op-ed for The Washington Post about her experiences as a victim of domestic violence. Johnny Depp sued her for defamation, and after a lengthy trial, the court ruled in his favor.
If Amber Heard does decide to write her autobiography, it is sure to be a gripping read. The actress has been through a lot in her personal life, and her story is one that many people will be interested in hearing. Only time will tell if she decides to go ahead with the book, but if she does, it is sure to make headlines.
