Keitel Accused of Shunning Son
A New York court has been told that Hollywood star Harvey Keitel refused to see his baby son until six months after his birth. The Pulp Fiction star's ex-girlfriend Lisa Karmazin claims the actor has visited his son - who is now 13 months old - just three times. Karmazin, a pottery instructor from San Diego, California, began a whirlwind romance with the 63-year-old actor after they met in February 2000. She claims their relationship soured when she discovered she was pregnant with baby Hudson - named after the Manhattan street where Keitel lives and where the baby was conceived - and deteriorated by the time she gave birth in September last year. Karmazin told Manhattan Family Court, "I called him from the hospital in labor. He said that he couldn't make it, that he would be there in a couple of days. It took him six months to see his son." Keitel married actress Daphna Kastner last October.

Keitel Forced To Pay More To Lovechild
Harvey Keitel has been forced to increase his child support payments to the woman he dumped while she was pregnant. Keitel's liaison with potter Lisa Karmazin produced a son, Hudson, five months ago. Keitel married another woman, Israeli-born filmmaker/actress Daphna Kastner, shortly after Hudson's birth. He had been paying $3,000 a month in support. Karmazin, who earns only $10,000 a year, asked for an increase to $7,000 a month, but Keitel's attorney argued she had chosen to live "a spartan lifestyle" and didn't need an increase. The court in New York split the difference and awarded her a $2,000 a month increase.

Harvey Keitel Marries In Jerusalem
Harvey Keitel married his Israeli-born wife Daphna Kastner on Sunday afternoon - dressed in black. Keitel was in Jerusalem to attend the Haifa film festival screening of his new movie The Grey Zone - which depicts how Jews were forced to work in the crematoria of Auschwitz death camps against their will. News of the wedding is a shock, because only last week reports emerged that the screen legend had just become a father again - to a little girl whose mother is a mystery woman called Lisa. Keitel already has a 16-year-old daughter, Stella, with actress Lorraine Bracco, currently his adversary in a fierce custody battle.
