Jude Law Learns Family Sold Stories to News of the World in UK Phone Hacking Trial
Well it sucks to be Jaw Law right about now!
Law revealed in court that he was unaware that a close family member was being paid by a newspaper to leak information about his private life.
The information was revealed during the News Of The World phone hacking trial.
The 41-year-old was questioned by former News Of The World (NOTW) editor Andy Coulson's lawyer, Timothy Langdale QC, about a story in 2005 about his then-girlfriend Sienna Miller having an affair with actor Daniel Craig.
Asked if he was aware at any time that a member of his "immediate family" was talking to the NOTW, he said: "I was aware later around 2011, maybe later than that, at the time I was approached about the case that the NOTW had been in contact with people in my family, trying to find things out, asking for quotes."
Coulson's defense lawyer wrote down a name of an alleged source on a piece of paper to show Law.
Law replied: "I was made aware very recently that there had been some kind of communication with this person and several others in and around and about this period of time. I was never aware any money had been exchanged."
Jude’s next holiday gathering is going to be quite awkward!
