Casey Anthony's probation for writing bad checks, which required her to remain in Florida for one year, ends on Thursday at midnight, and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the notorious 'Tot Mom' recently got a United States passport.
"Casey recently got a United States passport. She wants to be able to leave the country as she pleases and plans to leave Florida immediately. Casey has been counting down the days for this day, and she feels like she has been in jail for this past year because of safety concerns. Casey just wants to get on with her life, and it may just be that doing so in a foreign country is the best thing for her," a source close to the situation tells us.
Anthony - acquitted last summer of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee - will have to return to Florida early next year because she is being sued for defamation by Zenaida Gonzalez. One of the many tales Anthony told about her missing daughter Caylee, before the little girl's body was found, was that her nanny Zenaida Gonzalez had disappeared with her.
There was no such nanny, but a woman with that same name later claimed that Anthony had ruined her life and sued her for defamation. Gonzalez's lawyer, John Dill told RadarOnline.com exclusively: "We look forward to seeing Casey Anthony in January."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, in wake of her acquittal, Anthony tried, but failed, to get a book deal, and now has aspirations of becoming a reality star!
Anthony's civil attorney Charles Greene told the Orlando Sentinel: "Her (Casey Anthony) future plans are the subject of serious deliberation and discussion. I have sincere concerns as to her safety."
