Jude Law is expecting a baby with model Samantha Burke, and according to sources, the father-of-three is “not pleased.” However, it might have more to do with a fear of having to pay out big bucks rather than being upset about the child coming.
Law, who is father to three with ex-wife Sadie Frost (and stepfather to her oldest child), was taken by surprise with the announcement of a fourth child on the way. He’s concerned about how this will affect him financially.
Sources says Samantha will try to take Jude to the cleaners.
An insider said, “Jude is in for a seriously tough time. He’s accepted he’s the father and promised to do everything he can as a father. But the family in New York want it in writing.
“There is a high-powered lawyer in the girl’s family getting involved and Jude is terrified he will be cleaned out. Her family are also furious he’s had his way and disappeared back to Britain.”
The source added, “The girl wants a large maintenance payment and financial costs, including a percentage of Jude’s future earnings, agreed in writing.
“Jude is full of remorse. He’s distressed at how upset his children are. Hamlet goes mad and he has joked that he is going the same way.”
Well, when you play, you have to be prepared for what may happen. While I don’t agree with the baby mama taking him “to the cleaners,” Jude absolutely has to provide for his child. I’m sure he will. Hopefully everything is handled amicably!
