Good news and bad news for Jude

Jude Law has been cleared of allegations he assaulted a femalephotographer after officials in the U.K. ruled no action will be takenagainst him

Jude Law has been cleared of allegations he assaulted a female photographer after officials in the U.K. ruled no action will be taken against him, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

The star allegedly hit the photographer as he tried to get to his car after leaving a London nightclub in July. He was accused of striking Harsha Gopal on the head and slapping her face as she tried to take his picture, but he denied the accusations. His lawyer said the claims were “nonsense.”

Law was adamant camera flashes had blinded him, and as he held his arm out he accidentally struck someone before apologizing and leaving the scene. In a statement, a spokesman for the crown prosecution service said, “A careful analysis of the specific evidence in this case, which included photographs and eyewitness statements, indicates that Mr. Law had no intention to assault anyone.”

It has also been learned Law’s baby with model Samantha Burke is due Oct. 6, the same day he debuts on Broadway in Hamlet.

Burke is reportedly looking to upstage the actor, as she’s reportedly been shopping around an exclusive interview about their relationship and pictures of newborn, to be named Sophia.

“Samantha is getting offers ranging up to $200,000 (US),” a source told Page Six. “While Jude has promised to provide for Sophia, Samantha doesn’t feel like his behaviour towar­ds her was entirely chivalrous.”
