According to the site, Anthony, who was acquitted of first-degree murder in the death of her daughter Caylee, settled for the deal because her reps were afraid there wouldn't be too many other offers. They claimed the book would highlight life growing up in the Anthony family and that Anthony would finally name Caylee's father in her tell-all.

But Baez told local station WFTV that the report of the book deal is not true.

Anthony has been out of the public eye since she was acquitted. But Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. ruled Friday that Anthony has to report to a state department of corrections facility in Orlando, Florida no later than noon on August 26 to serve probation for a check fraud charge.

Perry said he would authorize the department of corrections to make an exception and keep Anthony's address private during her probation.
