In an interview with People Magazine Sandra Bullock confirmed that she filed for a divorce from Jesse James. She refused to tell which jurisdiction the papers are filed. However, TMZ reports that the divorce was filed in Austin, Texas. Sandra made an attempt to keep the papers quiet by filing under her initials backwards (B.A.S). Filing date was April 23, 2010. Jesse James’s initials were identified as J.J.G. His middle name is Gregory. Sandra has hired a law firm named Chaffe McCall.
Sandra Bullock has endured publicly humiliation by the hands of her cheating husband Jesse James. Jesse committed infidelity with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee and Melissa Smith. The news broke in March after Michelle McGee gave an interview to Touch Magazine.
Celebrities sent well wishes to Sandra Bullock during the media frenzy. In the interview with People, Sandra seemed focused and calm. On a brighter note, Sandra has become the proud mother of a three and a half month old baby named Louis Bardo Bullock. Sandra and Jesse started the adoption process four years ago and brought the baby home in January. However, Sandra plans to raise the child as a single parent. The African American baby was born in New Orleans and was named after Louis Armstrong.
Sandra Bullock became a household name with the help of Speed and While You Were Sleeping movies. Bullock was ranked the 14th richest female celebrity with an estimated fortune of $85 million. Let’s hope that Sandra has a prenup.
Going to court is not a new adventure for Sandra Bullock. In October 2004 she won a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Benny Daneshjou. The builder constructed her home in Lake Austin, Texas. He did a rotten job and the jury thought so as well when they ruled the house uninhabitable. In April 2007, Marcia Diana Valentine was lying outside of Jesse and Sandra’s Southern California home. When Jesse confronted Valentine, she got behind the wheel of her Mercedes and tried to run Jesse over. Valentine, an obsessed fan of Sandra Bullock, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. Bullock won a three-year restraining order against Valentine in May 2007.
Stay strong, Sandra. Your fans are still behind you.
