Jude Law reportedly doesn't even remember Samantha Burke - the mother-to-be of his fourth child
Jude Law doesn't even remember the mother-to-be of his fourth child.
A friend of Samantha Burke - who is pregnant with the star's baby following a brief romance last year - claims the American model hasn't seen or been in personal contact with the 'Sherlock Holmes' actor since he left New York.
The unnamed pal told E! Online: "She met him at a club in New York. He was sick, so she kept going to his hotel over the course of a week to take care of him.
"But Jude didn't even remember her. She hasn't seen him since New York. They've only been in contact through their lawyers."
The friend also said she believes Samantha, 24, is "crazy" to go through with the pregnancy.
Samantha recently denied she is a 'gold digger' who is only after Jude's money.
The brunette beauty wrote on her blog: "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.
"When I found out I was pregnant, I was scared. I didn't jump for joy because I 'hit the jackpot' - I cried."
Samantha has reportedly made a request for £5,900 a month in maintenance for the child, which she plans to call Sophia, and is due in October.
Jude, 36, has previously said he will be a "fully supportive part of the child's life".
He already has three children with his ex-wife Sadie Frost, Rafferty, 12, Iris, eight, and six-year-old Rudy.
