Screen heartthrob Jude Law’s hand made contact with the backside of a female pap’s head, as he was leaving London’s The Automat bar in London early Thursday — that much everyone agrees on.
The Alfie star, through his attorney, said he was temporarily blinded by the flash of multiple cameras and the incident was an accident. His attorney said that Law — who was arrested on assault charges involving a photographer two years ago — is innocent of any wrongdoing.
“This is all nonsense,” his attorney said. “Last night’s incident was an accident … he apologized and left. Pictures of this sort can often be misleading.”
The victim claims otherwise.
“He hit me full on the face, it was a real stinger,” the unidentified 28-year-old victim said. “It was very sore.”
