Samantha Burke wants cash for snaps of the wee Law-let.
The woman Jude Law impregnated last winter while shooting Sherlock Holmes, Samantha Burke, is due in October and expects to cash in on her famous little spawn. The New York Post reports that Samantha, who bills herself as "Model, Actress, Mother-to-be" on her personal website (classy! So "Mother-to-be" is how you earn your money?), is shopping for offers in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for pictures of the baby, which is due on the same day that Jude opens in Hamlet on Broadway.
Samantha, a 24-year-old native Floridian, hooked up with Jude last winter. Reports surfaced last month that he'd knocked up a mystery woman, and Samantha eventually came forward to claim her big pile of notoriety. She claimed at the time that she wasn't a gold-digger, but the Daily Mail claimed that she expected Jude to support her and the baby to the tune of $10,000 a month. And as many expectant mothers do, she's been chronicling her pregnancy with photos focusing on her growing belly—but most expectant mothers are classy enough not to do so with their cell phone cameras and then post the snaps online.Is Having A Sugar Daddy Worth It?
The producers of Hamlet, in which Jude already performed the lead role on London's West End to good reviews, are reportedly pretty itchy about Samantha's attention-mongering (maybe they can cry into their beers with the folks in charge of Twilight). A source close to Samantha threatens that she'll do a tell-all interview about the brief relationship to go with the pictures. "While Jude has promised to provide for Sophia, Samantha doesn't feel like his behavior towards her was entirely chivalrous," the source says. However this shakes out, we can't wait to see Kristen Wiig playing Samantha Burke when Saturday Night Live comes back later this month.
