Star admits he's skint after marriage break-up

Jude Law has revealed that the breakdown of his marriage to Sadie Frost hit his bank account – hard.

Although he’s a successful actor, he’s clearly only earning just enough to keep his ex-wife in the lifestyle she’s become accustomed to.

When quizzed on whether he’d like to take a break from acting to spend more time with his kids – Rafferty, 10, Iris, six, and Rudy, four – he replied: ‘No. I can’t afford it. I got divorced last year and I haven’t got any money.’

Jude, 33, and Sadie, 41, called in the lawyers in 2003 and, after two years of negotiations, finally reached a divorce settlement in 2005.

Sadie reportedly received the couple’s £4 million Primrose Hill pad plus £15,000 a month maintenance.

Jude has his own house but can’t afford to make it his own.

He tells the London Lite: ‘I’m actually renting. I’m trying to save money to buy it.’
