After Sandra Bullock was blind sided by her husbands cheating last month, she must be asking herself why did Jesse James marry me? Was it for love, fame, money or wanting a positive role model for his children? Was it his ego, wanting to say I married a movie star, the ultimate prize or pin up model? Or is Jesse James a collector and Sandra was just one more notch on his bedroom door?
Who is Jesse James really? Jesse was born on April 19, 1969, born under the sign of Aries. He claims that his great great grandfather was the cousin of the famous outlaw, Jesse James, but others have disputed it. After several years as a bodyguard with Danzig, he occasionally worked for other heavy metal bands such as Slayer and Soundgarden. After he left the road, he opened West Coast Choppers in his mother’s garage in 1992.
Over the years, legal troubles have followed him. In April 2000, a former employee filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against James, which was settled out of court. Again, another employee came forward in 2007 with similar claims and Jesse James settled the lawsuit for reportedly $700k. How could this have slipped by Sandra unnoticed?
In business, he has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success that has been tarnished by legal claims. In 2007, James was fined $271,250 by the California Resources Board, over his custom bikes emitting 10 times over the legal amount allowed of hydrocarbons. Other lawsuits included a disgruntled customer over a custom car not completed and a former lawyer who said James owed him over $300k in legal fees.
In romance, he has been divorced twice and is working on a third with America’s Sweetheart, Sandra Bullock. He had a very public custody battle over his daughter Sunny, with with his second wife, porn star Janine Lindemulder. Now, after multiple mistresses have come forward, he will be most likely battle it out with Sandra Bullock in the divorce court.
Sandra must have seen the red flags but was too blinded by love, she wanted to believe in the happily ever after fairytale. In the end, Jesse James is a good father, an astute businessman and a dude who just shouldn’t be married. If he’s smart he will stay single this time. That way he can hook up with any woman he wants without taking anyone else along for a heartbreaking ride.
