The family of the young woman carrying Jude Law‘s surprise baby have spoken out, saying they are “mad” at the movie star for “dumping her cold” after their brief fling. Speaking to the UK’s Mail on Sunday newspaper, Samantha Burke‘s grandma Delores Burke also disclosed that the starlet’s father had to threatened action against Jude through a lawyer in order to get a response from him.
“My son Denis is hopping mad. He feels that Jude Law took advantage of his little girl. He rang him up but could never get through on the number Jude gave Samantha. He kept leaving messages. In the end, some lawyer called up and then Denis did get to talk to Jude and read him the riot act. I think that’s what made him step up to the plate and promise to look after this baby. Denis is as mad as hell and wants him to be a man about this,” she says.
The 80-year-old Pittsburgh resident adds that “[Jude] is a man who I believe took advantage of a young, innocent and silly girl… Samantha is upset. I think she hoped Jude would be more in the picture. But he’s just dumped her cold. She hasn’t heard from him at all.” Through his reps, Jude stated late last week that he would “be a fully supportive part of the child’s life.” Samantha and her family are thought to still be in legal negotiations with the British star over the support of her baby daughter, who is due on October 6.
