Jude Law’s baby-mama asks for $10 K a month, denies being “gold-digger”


Since we found out that Samantha Burke was the baby-mama of Jude Law’s baby a few weeks ago, many amongst us have been asking those nagging little questions. Did Samantha lie to Jude about being on the pill? Why won’t Jude Law just wear a condom? Did Samantha get pregnant on purpose? Is the baby even Jude’s? Did he demand a paternity test? Does Samantha hope to ride this baby-mama status to stardom? Just how supportive is Jude of Samantha? Why is Samantha Burke taking weird camera phone pictures of herself scantily-clad? And finally, what is this little dalliance going to cost Jude Law?

As we do some deep thinking about those questions, Samantha Burke would like to tell us something “I’m no gold-digger.” It seems Samantha is blogging about her pregnancy, and she describes herself as “far from a gold-digger” and that she’s “never” dated a rich man before. Of course, the Daily Mail also has some sources that claim Samantha is asking Jude for 5,900 pounds (GBP) a month in child support. I checked the exchange rate, and that’s about $10,000 a month (technically $9,756.90 as of this weekend). It sounds like a very high number (to me) – that would be about $120,000 a year for 18 years, or a total of $2.16 million to get the kid to adulthood. Good Lord. Now I wish Jude would get me pregnant. Gah! I’m such a gold-digger.

The woman expecting Jude Law’s love child has hit back at claims that she is trying to exploit the star. In an internet blog about her pregnancy, Samantha Burke writes: ‘I’m no gold-digger.’

The model, from Florida, has been accused of deliberately getting pregnant by Law after meeting him in New York.

Pictures of Miss Burke, 24, showing off her ‘baby bump’ have already appeared on the internet, along with reports that she wants £5,900 a month in maintenance for the child, due in October.

But she insists in her blog she has no interest in Law’s fortune. She writes: ‘I can’t tell you how far from a gold-digger I am. I’ve never dated a rich man in my life. I’ve always wondered how girl friends of mine could even ask their boyfriends to buy them clothes.’

Despite her assertions, the diary webpage seems designed to capitalize on her new-found fame – with ads telling readers how to contact her managers.

Before her modeling career took off, Miss Burke spent her weekends at the beach with friends and worked as a scantily-clad Hooters waitress. She quit the job after being signed by Florida-based agency Izon Models and began traveling to and from New York for work. She eventually made the city her home and began to take acting classes at the New York Studio for Film and Television.

Miss Burke met Law, 36, while he was in the city filming Sherlock Holmes. They are understood to have spotted one another outside the 1OAK nightclub in the city’s Meatpacking district. They went for a meal at a nearby diner before going back to the actor’s room at the Greenwich Hotel.

Miss Burke is due to give birth to a baby girl in October. Law has said he plans to be a ‘fully supportive part of the child’s life’. But he only learned of the pregnancy two weeks ago.

[From theDaily Mail]

I can actually relate to Samantha’s statement, “I’ve always wondered how girl friends of mine could even ask their boyfriends to buy them clothes.” I’ve never figured out how and why some girls do this, it’s so bewildering to me. Mind you, I’m talking about just dating, not engaged or married couples, where obviously the financial stuff gets mingled. I knew a couple several years ago where the girl didn’t work, yet she had her own place which her boyfriend paid for. He even paid for all of her bills, and paid off her credit cards too. They weren’t engaged or anything, there were no kids involved and they had just been going out for a year or so and he was just doing it to take care of her. I’ve always found that kind of stuff astounding. I wouldn’t even know how to ask a guy to pay my phone bill.

So if I was in Samantha’s position – knocked up with Jude Law’s baby – would I behave differently? Would I ask for child support at all? I probably would, actually. But I wouldn’t try to convince the world that I wasn’t in it for the money.

Note by Celebitchy: Samantha did write this – it’s on her new official website, Samantha-Burke.com, featuring modeling photos, contact information and details of her pregnancy. I get that she’s trying to control the news about her, but she’s doing it whilegiving us bikini photos and booking information. It kind of takes away from her message, don’t you think?

    Eww… Trash woman.

    That bottom pic is all i need, GOLD DIGGER!

    So… her phone was hacked and the pics stolen???

    “I didn’t choose to publish pictures of myself. Everything that you have seen and or read has come from someone other than me”

  2. B Askew says:

    Me thinks she doth protest too much.

  3. maddie says:

    The model, from Florida, didn’t know having your picture on a flyer advert for free shake Friday is modeling, you learn something everyday.

    The stats were out last month on how much it takes to raise a kid and I think it likes 250,000$ and thats not with college added in.

    So 10,000$ a month for 3 years should cover it, for I’m Not a GOLD DIGGER nor 24 YEARS OLD, Samantha Burke.

  4. Firestarter says:

    Just another disgusting star effer! She did her gold digging right though, take note Sarah Lawson, this is how it is done!

  5. DD says:

    well kids of the golden variety require a lot more resources to raise.

  6. YT says:

    Hopefully Jude Law will insist on a DNA test before any decisions are made. The whole situation is suspect, though it is not unusual for a woman to consider having a child as a meal ticket.

    have you read this text at her website:


    About Samantha Burke

    Samantha Burke is a model, actress, and soon to be mom! This blog, Samantha-Burke.com, will offer her fans a way to keep up with her daily life as she juggles her career and motherhood.

    her fans? fans because of…i guess…becaue of her social commitment as gold digger or her big success as gold digger? or eventually for winning a trophy in the gold digger cup 2009? (sorry for my englisch…not my mother) language)

  8. Beth says:

    If the story is true, why would she need $10,000 a month? It’s one thing if they lived together in some way(court’s logic in most cases is to keep her lifestyle). But since this is a one-night stand I doubt she should or would get so much money. Does Jude’s ex even get that much?

  9. Kaboom says:

    $10.000 a month won’t ruin Jude Law and have to be put in perspective with the kind of upbringing he affords his other children he has with his ex-wife Sadie Frost. I think we’d agree that they should be given the same standard of living, no?

  10. Mairead says:

    But to be fair Kaboom, at least half of that lifestyle is supplied by Sadie Frost herself from FrostFrench.

    But considering the source is the Mail, I’m going to remain sceptical about how much she’s asking for.

  11. Gigohead says:

    10K is a lot of money for a baby! Looks like Jude will have to not only pay for baby but also pay for Mommy as well. Reminds me of Goldigger song by Kanye West song, “Instead of Tyco, she buys lipo with your money!”.

  12. gg says:

    Hey Mairead :) . FrostFrench went bust in August 2008. Small wonder – I’ve looked at their clothes and – GAG! – they’re a joke! These women knew nothing about how to design clothing or dress people, they were just winging it and it didn’t work. Even worse (imo) than Stella McCartney and Beyonce’s mom.

    Kaiser said: “I knew a couple several years ago where the girl didn’t work, yet she had her own place which her boyfriend paid for.

    Kaiser you should take a class called SUGARDADDY 101. :lol:

  13. Kaiser says:

    gg – I would actually be interested in taking a “Golddigger/Sugardaddy” class, if only the community college would offer it! Maybe there’s a self-help book somewhere? “Eat, Pray, Gold-Dig, Marry, Get Pregnant, Divorce, Live on Settlement, Love”

  14. wow says:

    @YT – they already have done one of those risky DNA test from in the womb. That is why he came forth acknowledging this child and why she’s getting all of this attention. He already knows its his.

    I’m sure he gets a lot of women claiming the “I’m pregnant with your kid” line, but this one actually is. Poor kid.

  15. Lois says:

    Wow, she is taking the fame whore title to a new, pathetic level. Poor Dina Lohan, there is someone now in her own league. Fans? Does she really think she has fans? I never thought I would say I was sorry for Jude Law, but, man, to have this nut job in his life for the next 18 years sucks big time.

  16. k says:

    What bugs me about this woman, more than anything, are the pictures. Lots of pregnant women take belly shots, but it really bothers me that she doesn’t look happy in a single one. She’s too busy working the sexyface (TM Jezebel) and I think they’re indicative of where her head is at. The baby bump is merely the excuse for putting underwear pics of herself on the Internet.

    I’ll join the chorus: poor kid.

  17. Green Is Good says:

    It wouldn’t matter if Donald Trump was the baby daddy, no preggo, scheming, gold-digger deserves 10,000 per month.

  18. Susette says:

    When the courts consider child support, it’s usually a percentage of income. Jude Law should absolutely be paying child support and in relation to his income, $10 thou a month isn’t out of line.

    I don’t think she’s a gold digger or that any of her actions have really screamed gold digger. Fame whore, yes. I think she’s using this pregnancy to gain attention for a post baby career. So, yes to fame whore. No, to gold digger.

  19. mikaila says:

    LMAO at Kaiser!!! The book should be a collaboration, authored by Usher’s ex-wife, Samantha Burke, and . . . somebody help! With all the golddiggers out there, I can’t think of other authors!

  20. wow says:

    Wait a sec. I just re-read this part:

    “Miss Burke met Law, 36, while he was in the city filming Sherlock Holmes. They are understood to have spotted one another outside the 1OAK nightclub in the city’s Meatpacking district. They went for a meal at a nearby diner before going back to the actor’s room at the Greenwich Hotel. ”

    So they either wrote this to make it seem as if she slept with him on the first night they spotted each other, or she actually did sleep with him on the first day she met him. Jude is rather skanky himself then.

  21. Katyusha says:

    Is someone offering to pay your bills better than asking for someone to pay your bills?

  22. Leo says:

    I’m with Susette on the ‘fame whore’ label. Only a fame whore would call a press conference to ask for privacy, when a simple statement through a representative would have sufficed. Getting pregnant for a celebrity was the best thing to happen to her career and she is making it work for her.

    Maybe now Jude will stop, think and check before he has random sex.

  23. EvilWombatQueen says:

    I think I’m going to be the lone voice supporting this woman here. On the one hand you’re all condemning her for expecting child support commensurate to the father’s finances. On the other you’re also condemning her for trying to promote her career so that she can earn enough money to support the child herself.

    Maybe she should just wear sack-cloth, live in a ditch and feed the child grubs to keep people happy.

  24. orion70 says:

    I don’t get the whole “tricked him into getting her pregnant” slant to this story. Who the heck trusts anyone during a one night stand about their use of contraceptives, or just about anything for that matter? Unless she drugged or raped the man, there’s always a risk when you sleep with ANYONE, on both the male and female side.

    That said, the photos are tacky, but then again, i’ve seen a few regular folks posting similar stuff on the web. Stupid asshat photos seem to be the norm lately, hand in hand with “I never knew that would be seen by anyone”. *rolleyes*

  25. Cinderella says:

    He needs to get snipped if he insists on sleeping around with strangers.

    She is so unattractive. He was wearing beer goggles no doubt.

  26. ashley says:

    They are obviously both to blame for not using protection in this situation. Did she trick Jude Law? Is he a moron? He obviously knows how babies are made and he should think twice before doing random girls he meets at clubs with no protection. She is just as stupid god knows where he has been. I would expect the same thing she is asking, probably the same thing his other children get. Why should this one be any different. The only difference is this baby wont have its father around.

  27. DeeDee says:

    Trashy nasty famewhore has a fan club of one!

    Gott dayum is she ugly!!!! Jude must have had a LOT of beer!
