Amber Heard is reportedly planning to write a tell-all book about her relationship with ex-husband Johnny Depp, after being ordered to pay a whopping $8.4 million in damages following their explosive six-week trial.
The Texas native’s legal team has already come forward and said that their client is in no position to pay the high sum, and sources are now asserting that Amber believes her career in Hollywood is over, so she’s turning her attention to penning her own memoir as she feels she has “nothing to lose” at this point.

“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 explained, indicating that the book will be heavily focused on Amber’s version of events regarding her tumultuous romance with the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
And while Amber may think she has nothing to lose by putting out a book that will have Johnny’s name all over it, a New York divorce lawyer has weighed in on the report, saying that the 36-year-old needs to be very careful when talking about her ex unless she wants to be sued for defamation again.
After hearing about Amber’s supposed plans to write a tell-all memoir, Dror Bikel told OK! Magazine, “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 will be hit with another defamation suit and end up right back in court.”
Earlier this month, it was reported that Amber was broke and struggling for cash after being hit with the jury’s verdict earlier this month. And just last week, she was spotted shopping in discount store TJ Maxx in New York with her sister Whitney, which would further indicate that she is, indeed, facing some financial problems right now.

Furthermore, she gave her first televised interview since the jury’s verdict last week, where The Rum Diaries star insisted she was standing by her accusations against Johnny “until her dying day.”
“To my dying day, I’ll stand by every word of my testimony,” she told interviewer Savannah Guthrie on TODAY. “I did do and say horrible, regrettable things throughout my relationship, I behaved in horrible, almost unrecognizable to myself ways, I have so much regret. (I have) freely, openly and voluntarily talked about what I did… It was ugly and could be very beautiful. It was very, very toxic. We were awful to each other. I made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve always told the truth.”
Amber is still expected to star in the upcoming “Aquaman 2” — which hits theaters next year — after a petition to remove her from the second installment had reached almost five million signatures.
