A female photographer claims to have gotten a “real stinger” of a slap from Jude Law outside a London restaurant on Thursday and is considering legal action against the actor, popeater.com reports.

Harsha Gopal taking pictures of the actor when, Gopal alleges, the star flailed his arms around, striking the woman.

“He hit me full on the face, it was a real stinger, it was very sore,” she told the Daily Mail. “It was deliberate — you could see it in his face. Maybe he didn’t realize he was hitting a girl, but he could at least apologize.”

Law’s lawyer has responded, calling the claims “nonsense” and disputing Gopal’s assertion that he didn’t say sorry.
