Jude Law

I Support ALL My Kids

ESPECIALLY The Illegitimate One

Jude Law is on the hook for more than a quarter million dollars a year in child support ... and the biggest share goes to his illegitimate daughter -- NOT the kids he had with his ex-wife, Sadie Frost.

We got the agreement between Law and his baby mama, Samantha Burke ... with whom he had a brief fling in 2008.  The doc shows Law agreed to make child support payments for their daughter, Sophia, based on his income -- $3.4 mil in 2009 and $2.4 mil in 2010.

According to the legal docs, Law pays more than $13K in monthly support to Frost -- around $4,500 for each of their 3 kids.

But ... the daughter he had with Burke gets more than double that amount -- $9K a month -- and it goes up every few years until she's 18.

There's probably a good reason for the disparity ... Frost is a successful actress who owns her own fashion line.  Burke isn't.

There a people taking care of multiple kids making less than $5000 a month. Why should someone get $13000 a month to take care of one kid? There are company executives of well known organizations who don't make that kind of money.

Samantha is not a fame whore! She lives in Pensacola fl with Sophia and I am her friend! Besides Jude never sees her. He deserves to pay that much.

So he financially supports his kids. So what? Does he want a fking medal? This guy publicly (wasnt even smart enough to do it in secret) cheated on his now ex-wife numerous times. He's a major skumbag.

They base child supoort on both parents incomes. And lets be honest, he probably rarely sees the other kid not too often and she has more expenses since im sure he isnt ever taking th3 kid like an every other weekend dad. Her exps will be higher. Feel bad for the child.

Jude should sue TMZ over this vulgar headline. If they were really concerned about the child's welfare, they would not use such insensitive language that can be read by the child one day soon. Im sure Jude sees Sophia more than Tom Cruise sees Suri nowadays.

There are no illegitimate children, only illegitimate parents.
