Sandra Bullock Reveals News
It may surprise readers to learn that Sandra Bullock, 45, has filed for divorce from her husband, Jesse James. Even more startling is Popeater’s report this morning that Sandra Bullock told People she has adopted a baby from New Orleans in January of this year. Baby, Louis is 3 months old.
Gracing the front of a People magazine double issue with baby Louis, Sandra Bullock lovingly clutches him, smiling brightly. Truly a bittersweet snapshot in time, the picture cannot help but show the depth of Jesse James’s losses.
Sandra Bullock just spoke publically with People for the first time since the stunning news her now-estranged husband, Jesse James was having indiscriminate affairs/sex with at least 7 or 8 different women while he and Bullock were married. Popeater reports that Sandra Bullock revealed to People she and James had been in the process of adopting a child at the time of her Oscar win.
Brief History of Marital Discord Between Sandra Bullock and Jesse James
After Sandra Bullock’s loving and incredibly gracious remarks about her husband during her Oscar speech, the many women who had had affairs or sexual liaisons with Jesse James emerged into the press. One or two of them have apologized to Sandra Bullock by sending a note. Another stated she would like to meet with Sandra Bullock face-to-face (also to apologize?).
Although Jesse James almost immediately stepped up and took all the “blame” for his sexual indiscretions once the news broke (apparently hoping to keep his marriage together), Sandra Bullock was making other plans. She acknowledged to People that she has, in fact, filed for divorce. Even Jesse James’ lightning-quick admission into a sex addiction program did not sway Bullock’s decision to separate.
Both Sandra Bullock and Jesse James have been photographed sans wedding rings within the past couple of weeks. Over these past weeks since Bullock’s Oscar win and the ensuing demise of her marriage to Jesse James, people close to them have been close-mouthed about their marital situation.
Reaction of Jesse James to Bullock’s Plans to Divorce Him and Adopt Baby as a Single Parent
People also reports that Jesse James acknowledged he has a “huge hole” in his heart upon realizing his marriage to Bullock will be ending and that he will have no further contact with her or the baby, Louis. Since the adoption was not final at the time the news of his affairs broke, Sandra Bullock amended the adoption petition to be Louis’s single parent. Thus, Jesse James will have no parental rights to the infant.
Alas, the story of Sandra Bullock’s and Jesse James’s marriage will adorn the pile of prior failed Hollywood marriages. The sordid tales of Jesse James will most likely linger and leave him with even more scars. On the bright side, let’s all hope Sandra Bullock finds true love and limitless happiness with her beloved baby, Louis. Maybe they will decide to co-parent the baby. There will be more to this story.
