Jude Law tells phone hacking trial he was unaware of claim a relative sold stories to tabloid
LONDON (AP) — Jude Law has told Britain's phone hacking trial the media had an "unhealthy" amount of information about his private life. But the actor says he was unaware until Monday that a family member allegedly sold stories about him to the tabloid press.
Law appeared as a witness at the trial of several former employees of Rupert Murdoch's now-defunct News of the World tabloid.
Law has been paid compensation for phone hacking by Murdoch's company. But a defense lawyer suggested that some of the information in 2005 stories came from Law's associates.
Law said he was unaware until Monday's hearing of claims that a close relative had been paid by the News of the World.
