Amanda Knox’s $4 Million Dollar Book Deal
Amanda Knox, the young American exchange student accused of sexual assaulting and murdering her flatmate Meredith Kercher with her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, has been offered $4 million dollars for her story
In December 2011 Knox and Sollecito (who has a memoir of his own on the horizon) were released from jail after four years because of a lack of “reliable” evidence.
Her representative, Robert Barnett, is the very man who scored Barack Obama and Sarah Palin their book deals. As far as numbers go $4 mill isn’t as crazy as it sounds.
Though Chelsea Handler reportedly received about a million for her last book George Bush and Tina Fey made about seven times that. If you want to know more about the Knox case THIS is my favorite article on the matter
