Jude Law: Samantha Burke Was Just As Shocked

Jude Law: Samantha Burke Was Just As Shocked

Jude Law interacts with fans outside London’s Wyndham Theatre on Friday (July 31) after another performance of Hamlet.

The 35-year-old British actor is expecting his fourth child with 24-year-old aspiring actress Samantha Burke. Her mom, Lea Burke, a massage therapist from Pensacola, Fl., told The London Evening Standard Newspaper: “This was no way planned. Hell no. She was in shock when she found out she was pregnant and terrified to tell him.”

Lea added, “It was tough for her – she was going back to school so she had to change plans. She’s decided to come back home – it is too expensive to stay in New York and she can be with her family… I am already a grandmother, but am of course looking forward to being one again. Every mother would prefer if her daughter had a child with a man she was married to – it would be nice if the father was around but that’s not going to happen because of his job and she knows that, she’s realistic about that.”

Lea finished, “I don’t know him but my daughter said he was very ‘nice’ – she likes him as a person and they spent time together when she was living in New York. She treats him like a normal guy and he liked hanging out with her.”

I think it’s funny how everybody is quick to voice their opinions. Yes both of these two people made a poor decisions, but who are you to judge? I actually know Samantha….not well, but well enough. Yes she likes to go out and have a good time and yes she made a mistake. Who hasn’t? This situation would absolutely have never happened to me personally, but that doesn’t give any of us the right to bash her. I think it’s more irresponsible to just abort a child just because you can. It takes far more guts to raise a child than it does to have a surgical procedure. She has the means to take care of any child regardless of who the father is. In this case it just happens to be somebody who is an actor. Yes she and the child will be set for life, but she didn’t get herself pregnant

76! — Hmmmm… do you know her in person? Tell us more…

She works as a model actress and babysitter. She obviously isn’t pretty enough to be a model, so how exactly is she going to have her own money? Her full time job now is to be a baby-momma, a prositute with a uterus.

She is a good person. And those of you who don’t know her only know what the media has reported…and they don’t even know her. Just because a person hasn’t become a super model doesn’t mean they haven’t been successful. She obviously had some sort of income to afford living in NYC. You’re no better of a person than what you’re accusing her of being.

@idiot man:

i know samantha personally and everyone on here with dumb ass comments need to shut it… she is a great person and beautiful in many ways. she will be a great mother and for all of you that say she is in it for the money… grow up!!! that was not the intention to get pregnant. if it were you in the situation you would of done the same thing. she just ended up pregnant… and by the way she did use protection. so keep your comments to your self b4 you judge someone that you do not know!!!!

Why do all of you fat ass middle aged men hating women insist that you know exactly how this happen. Cause I mean really, you were in the room with them. You know if they did or didn’t use a condom? Pull your head out of your ass. Everyone wants to praise Jude like he wasn’t there. I do believe it was half his sperm and half her egg to get this thing going . Oh wait NO! she must have used a turkey baster. You are all lonely sad people and stop hating cause she got knocked up and your still stuck in your double wide somewhere.

In case you don’t know, the point of a forum is to express one’s opinions. You are also judgmental of those who happen to disagree with you and have even resorted to name-calling. If you are so offended, then don’t read the comments.

Okay, I know this girl personally. Yes, personally. I’ve grown up with her in Gulf Breeze, FL. Look it up on a map, it’s less than 10 mins from Pensacola FL. This whole situation makes me sick. Her family makes me sick, and she is no sweetheart. They are just taking ADVANTAGE of a star, so that her “daughter will be financially set for life.” This is not about supporting your daughter. This is about supporting a baby which doesn’t cost more than $600-$1,500 a month. Not $50,000 a month which they are speaking numbers about now. I think its absolutely sickening that they are taking full advantage of Jude Law. And Samantha don’t let me see you out in the local bars, because I swear I’m gonna have some words with you. Money grubber.

@Stephanie:

OH SO YOU KNOW PERSONALLY NOW, SHE IS TRYING FOR 50000 A MONTH?? NO SHES NOT!!!! ITS COOL IF YOU DO NOT LIKE HER THATS FINE, BUT WHY ARE YOU SO ADAMENT ABOUT TRASH TALKING HER AND HER FAM? THERE HAS TO B A PERSONAL REASON. I KNOW HER TOO, VERY WELL, AND SHE IS ALWAYS BEEN A GREAT PERSON AND FRIEND TO ME.. GO AHEAD HAVE WRODS WITH HER I JUST HOPE IM NOT THERE WHEN YOU DO, CAUSE ITS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS AND YOU REALLY ONLY KNOW WHAT YOU READ. I HAVE KNOWN FROM THE START AND THIS WAS NOT HER PLAN. AND ITS STILL NOT… EVERYONE IS OPEN TO OPINIONS BUT DONT GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT SOMETHING YOUHAVE NO IDEA ABOUT…SHE NOT THE SAME AS YOU “MIGHT” HAVE THOUGHT YOU”KNOWN ” IN HIGHSCHOOL.SHES NOT FOR THE MONEY UNFORTUANTLY SHE IS NOT ABOUT THE ATTENTION.. IT WAS HARD ENOUGH FOR HER FINDING SHE WAS PREGO, THEN HAVING TO TELL HIM, THEN SOMEONE ANNOUNCE IT BEFORE SHE WAS READY TOO, SHE DIDNT DO THIS ON HER OWN… I JUST THINK IT WOULD B BETTER IF PEOPLE DIDNT BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY READ OR WHAT THEY THINK THEY KNOW ANOUT SOMEONE.

MEGAN – pleaxe pleaxe spare me the details

Meagan, I don’t believe everything I read but I do believe what I see. If she’s not about the attention, then why did she hold a press conference about her pregnancy? Now the public knows who she is and where she lives. Jude Law did not identify her to the press. She herself did. She’s selling out their baby before it’s even born.

This woman’s true colours are showing. If she really wants to keep it quiet, she should not appear in the video and she should keep a leash on her blabbermouth family.

@Daphne:

she apppered in the video due to her and his lawyer making that the right decision. it is all being done on the part of both of them not on her against him or vice versa.. he knew she was going to publicly announce after the info was released, it was both lawyers agrreing on that. so she did not go out of her ways to blow his spot. her family is not acccusing him or her and is not pointing fingers either wasy if he is invloved that family has the financial ability for that little girl to have a great life, with or with out him. she wants a dad not a dollar. thtas what it comes down to at the end of the day!!!

@Stephanie:

Uh Stephanie, to have seen her hanging out in bars you had to be at these bars hanging out yourself, no? That’s like saying to someone, “I know you shop at Wal-Mart cuz I saw that outfit you’re wearing when I was in the ladies’ section…”

Now if you were in the bars to see her but merely “heard rumors” about it then you’re just as much a rumor monger as anyone passing rumors about Jude, yes? Either way sista, you’re either just as much a bar hopper as Stephanie or as much a rumor monger as anyone else in this whole scenario.

When I took biology back in the day, I learned it took two donors to make a baby. So unless she held a gun to Jude’s head, if he’s da baby’s daddy he’s just as responsible, dumb, and at fault for this “accident” as the female in this case.

What amazes me is if ya’ll had a daughter that got knocked up by some b/f you’d want her to get support/assistance whatever too for the sake of your daughter and forthcoming grandchild. Yet cuz you’re fans of Jude it’s POOR JUDE. Gimme a break.

@meagan: Then they need to read the London tabloids, because they have a pretty extensive writeup about what the family has supposedly said about Jude, and it’s very, very negative.
This whole thing has become a bigger media storm than it should have and I believe both of them are getting more than their share of negativity from a public that knows less than squat about any of it that’s pretty embarassing for both of them, and any one of us that finds ourselves in less than glowing situations would be mortified to be treated this way. The comments about birth control, sexual histories, reactions, assumptions made about what each one will do, supposed comments by “sources” and “friends”, all of it, are simply elements concocted by media to create this firestorm of drama. I’m personally over it. I hate tabloids, and anyone that believes or repeats what they say is no better than they are. I also believe that the people who write (concoct) those stories will get whatever they dish out, measured back to them accordingly, I really do. This is 2 people’s lives, and a baby, it’s not a circus sideshow.

@meagan: Also, I’m not saying I necessarily buy into the stories of her family that are in the London tabloids, I’m just saying I wonder if they are aware of what’s been written. Although they say they have direct quotes from her family, I’m still skeptical.

Sheryl, LOL keep coming, boy. You make me laugh! Are you a boy, right?

Daphne @ 08/03/2009 at 11:17 am

My sentiments exactally! Nobody knew or cared until she got on television and asked for privacy?! come on please…

Now – everyone is talking. Can you be serious Samantha?

i knew samantha through school and she is a wonderful person. and from what i hear Jude is degraiting to females and has plenty of children he dosent have anything to do with so. leave her alone.
