Samantha Burke Defends Jude Law

by at . Comments

Samantha Burke, the woman pregnant with Jude Law's love child, is trying to downplay her mother's recent remark that the actor "didn't want" the baby.

Lea Burke, was quoted in a London paper as saying the actor "didn't want the baby" and that Samantha was "terrified" to reveal she was knocked up by Jude Law.

The London Evening Standard quoted Lea: "It would be nice if the father was around, but that's not going to happen because of his job and Samantha knows that."

But in a press conference outside Lea's Pensacola, Fla., home, Samantha and her lawyers made it clear that the dad-to-be has responded positively to the pregnancy.

Samantha Burke is carrying Jude Law's love child.

"Samantha and her mother would like to be clear that comments attributed to her and media stories reported in the last 24 hours regarding Jude's contact with Samantha, along with his involvement, were taken out of context," her lawyer said.

"Jude has been responsive and supportive throughout the relationship and pregnancy and know that he will remain so as a father once baby Sophia is born."

He added: "Jude and Samantha remain committed to the health and well-being of this child and appreciate your honoring her privacy during this special time."

Before returning inside the house, Samantha Burke echoed his request: "I really would appreciate if everyone could respect my privacy. It's a hard time."

ROFLMAO---she's demanded PRIVACY??? What a LOAD. You don't demand privacy when you take snapshots of your big, fat gut and post them all over the tabloids, HO. She got knocked up intentionally and even bragged to friends that she was going to do this to some rich celebrity so she wouldn't have to work at Hooters any more. What a SLAG. The only person I feel sorry for is Jude.


Jude was whining the divorce from his ex cost him a fortune, now the nasty creep's stuck with another dependant hit to his pocket book. You know millionaire Steve Bing is laughing, as they both were intimately involved with Liz Hurley., but Bing paid for it haha

According to the National Enquirer [19 April 2004, p. 59], he demanded a paternity request, which came out positive.
