Jude sacks divorce lawyers
09:30 23 March 2005
Jude Law has reportedly sacked his lawyers - because his divorce is becoming too expensive and taking too long.
The heartthrob actor, who is now engaged to his 'Alfie' co-star, Sienna Miller, has allegedly cut his ties with his legal firm because of on-going wrangling over the financial details of his £10 million divorce to Sadie Frost.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Everything is fine between Jude and Sadie, but he's not happy with the way the settlement deal is going.
"The problem with Jude has is with the terms and conditions of the money and the property Sadie will be getting."
However, insiders say the decision to appoint a new legal team will slow the process down even further and delay Jude's plans to wed his gorgeous 23-year-old fiancé.
The source added: "The legal wrangling has been going on for five months. It's a real headache for both of them and Jude has had enough. But this will just drag it out even more."
Last month, the 32-year-old actor ditched his Hollywood agent, Josh Lieberman, after Oscars host Chris Rock compared him to a "low-rent Tom Cruise" in a speech during the ceremony.
The furious star immediately ended his association with high-profile CAA agency and signed up with rivals, Endeavour, in a bid to be seen as a more serious Hollywood actor.
