Casey Anthony

$10K Bid To Buy Silence ...


3/16/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0315-casey-anthony-gettyNobody wants to pay for a Casey Anthony interview ... but there IS someone who's offered to pay $10,000 in order to keep the alleged child murderer SILENT for the rest of her life ... TMZ has learned.

According to new court documents filed in Anthony's bankruptcy case, Casey's camp has received a $10k offer from a man hoping to obtain exclusive rights to Casey's life story.

But the buyer doesn't want to make a movie, put her on TV or write a book -- the docs explain his sole motivation is to "prevent Ms. Anthony or others from publishing or profiting from her story in the future."

The man seeking to purchase the rights is James M. Schober -- and as far as we can tell, he's just a random guy with no ties to Anthony or her family.

The trustee handling the bankruptcy case has been tasked with identifying anything of value that can be used to pay back the $800k Casey owes her creditors.

As far as we can see, there's no way the judge will green-light Schober's plan.  First, even Casey doesn't have the exclusive right to her story -- someone could write an unauthorized biography.  Besides that ... there's no way a judge would force the sale of thoughts in Casey's head.

It's very weird ... but the bankruptcy trustee is totally into selling Casey's story, because he's asking the court if he can create a bidding war.

He shouldn't hold his breath.

The guy with the short hair on your panel had made a comment the Wynonna Judd clip and stated that musicians who have gone from country to pop, have all fallen apart and failed. He specifically named Shania Twain as one of them,,,That is a load of crap, Shania's Album UP sold mega-millions. She then took a break from touring and producing and bought a castle in the Swiss Alps, had a baby, went through a divorce with Mutt Lang, and now after all that, has her very own show at Ceaser's Palace in Las Vegas ! ! !
Buddy, I would hardly call Shania Twain who has Rocked the music world a "failure" Try getting comments and facts "straight" buddy ! ! !

she should have to work off every single penny her trial cost the taxpayers. it still makes me sick that she murdered that poor child and got away with it, it just sets it up for the other sick people who have followed in her footsteps. she should have to turn over every penny she ever makes toward those costs and shouldn't be able to get any assistance from anyone. white trash baby killing whore.

Is the trustee getting any money for his work? If so, perhaps that is why he is anxious for this deal. She's a looser, pure and simple. How can she owe that much money? Is it to the attorney who must have known her financial situation before taking the case?
Guess mom and dad must have washed their hands of her and she can't squeeze them anymore. I would hope so anyway.
