Law 'Committed' To New Baby
The mother of Jude Law's fourth child has slammed reports the actor has shunned all contact with her - insisting quotes attributed to her mum were "taken out of context".
Samantha Burke is seven months pregnant with a baby girl after dating the Brit star when he was shooting Sherlock Holmes in New York earlier this year (09).
New reports allege Law has refused contact with Burke since finding out she was expecting his baby, with Burke's mother reportedly going on the record to voice her concerns.
Lea Burke was quoted as saying, “Samantha has no idea what is going on. She is very stressed out and upset. This was never planned and Jude didn’t want the baby. It was a total accident. This was no way planned. Hell, no.
"She was in shock when she found out she was pregnant and terrified to tell him. It would be nice if the father was around but that's not going to happen because of his job and Samantha knows that.
"Samantha is staying positive and hoping Jude will get in touch. She really wanted to get hold of him, but he hasn't called once."
Burke was so infuriated by the reports, she appeared in public on Friday (31Jul09) for the first time since news of her pregnancy broke, admitting: "It's a hard time."
She stood alongside her spokesperson outside her home to confirm Law is "committed to the health and wellbeing of this child".
The 24 year old's spokesperson says, "Samantha and her mother would like to be clear that comments attributed to her mother and media stories reported in the last 24 hours regarding Jude's contact with Samantha and his involvement were taken out of context.
"Samantha, her mom and her family can confirm Jude has been responsive and supportive through the relationship and pregnancy and know that he will remain so as a father once baby Sophia is born.
"Jude and Samantha remain commited to the health and wellbeing of this child and appreciate your honouring her privacy during this special time."
Britain's The Sun newspaper also reports Law is terrified intimate snaps taken during the pair's fling will be leaked to the press.
