Jesse James Reacts to Sandra Bullock's Divorce Filing

Jesse James Reacts to Sandra Bullock's Divorce Filing

Jesse James has shared his thoughts on his split from Sandra Bullock.

Here’s what Jesse told People:

“My whole life has been full of hard decisions.

“The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart.

Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go. Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life.

“I have always taken great pride in proving people wrong. That time has come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about.

“I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been an amazing wife, mother, and best friend, for the over 6 years we have been together.”

    LET HER? OH MY GOD!!!!!!! And no one is judging her, believe me.

  • socalmom

    You are the person that you truly are when no one is looking.

    Jesse James made choices that were sick and cruel. That is the person that he really is.

    You can listen to his excuses etc…. But, it is the person that you are when no one thinks you are looking that really defines who you are.

    Sandra is a classy woman and made a poor choice. She has a new life to take care of and I hope she never looks back on Jesse James. he is evil.

  • yeah, right!

    addiction? You gotta be kidding me! Why does all these celebs blame it on an imaginary illness when the simple truth is they can’t keep their pants zipped! dumbass!!!

  • anon

    It’s so easy to hate and while I dont condone his actions at all, I hope for the sake of his kids he really has learned from all this and will come out a truly better father and person for it. He chose the wrong woman to mess up with…or maybe the right one to force him to deal with the consequences of his actions and choices. I’d wish Sandy B. luck but I think she’ll be just fine and will move on with her life without subjecting the public to endless rounds of tearful interviews.

  • Deedz

    Jesse, you would’ve been better off not saying anything at all.

  • Chris

    What a low life.

  • ms o

    YOU F*ck*d UP, I hope everything goes well in your world,Mr. James. It looks bright & sunny in Bullocks world.

  • Kelly

    oh give me a break…addiction my ass!!!

  • ghfztzzt

    shut up…..jerk

  • troi

    He appears to be a good father unlike Tiger Woods. Hopefully he and Sandra can work through these huge and hurtful issues so that the four kids don’t suffer.

  • LolaSvelt

    What a couple of media whores. I’m really shocked that Sandra actually did this.

  • kim

    All things considered, I think that is not a bad apology and reaaly appears to be sincere and somewhat intelligent. What he did was a mistake and all he can do is learn from it, that’s it.
    He cheated, he didn’t kill.

  • kate

    Addiction!! SURE!!! He’s just sorry he got caught as it would have continued had he not been caught!! I mean he was cheating on Sandy from basically the beginning of their marriage!!! I have a similar situation and I can tell you this much, LET HIM GO!!! Sandy would be a fool to go back after he supposedly gets better!!! He is who he is and that won’t change no matter how many sessions of therapy he goes through!! The man has a type and I think he needs to stick to that and its clearly girls with lots of tats!!

    P.S. You don’t cheat on the love of your life…especially not at an age when you know better!!

  • Honeybunn

    Let her go……….? Sandra left you!
    Sandra left as soon as found out what a low life you are. I don’t think she was ever going back. You PIG!

  • Rocky

    I’m not judging him — not my place. I just hope he gets his act together because he just lost the best thing in his life. It’s just so sad that people have to learn things the hard way — or when it’s too late.

  • wolf2

    i think it’s funny that the media claims he is a nazi when all along the son they wanted to raise was african american! media needs to get the facts straight and stop trying to sell a story.,. but really? is Sanda trying to make her own ‘blind side’ ??

  • Liz

    I don’t think Jesse is evil… just really stupid & selfish. Maybe he can change… who knows.
    All of this is so sad. And they had a baby together! Poor little kid. He will have a great mother. And I’m sad for the other 3 kids of Jesse as well, especially the little girl, who only knows Sandra as her mother. I hope she still sees her.
    Everybody said Jesse was a good/great father. He does seem like a loving one. Who he f*cks is something else entirely. So I hope he will be a father for little Louis.
    As for Sandra & him… like she said, I don’t know. So sad.

  • spicylily, Thailand

    Good speech though but you’re who you are.
    You don’t deserve Sandra and now you just realize you have lost
    the best thing in your life.
    Too late….

  • Haua

    “Sex addiction” is just an excuse made up for cheating men. Afterall, if they were so “addicted” to just sex, wouldn’t they just be doing it with their wives a LOT? What part of this “addiction” drives them to look elsewhere for sex? Puh-leeze.

  • tweety

    Nasty man!

    I don’t believe he said all of this at all! Probably his lawyer or someone put these words together for him.

  • the truth

    Look peole he is human ok. Eveyone make mistakes abouit thins like this. Sandra should not let this get out are control. And she should stop hiding. Not talking up jesse for what he did but he’s facing this alone.Thing could work out privately.Things like this is blown up and need to stop.Enough with the jesse and Sandra thing.No one is talking how people are not talking about rachel bilson canelling her unoffical wedding.That why you all should be talking about instead are this. Its all for publicity for sandra Bullock for someone to feel sorrow for her. I say enough with this story and posted something else beside this.This was the begining are the morning with people magazine..Like’s read about how rachel bilson is hiding that she don’t have any wedding plans.That’s because hayden already said he wasn’t going to do it.And rachel copied him. This thing is nothing but a publicity stunt like rachel bilson’s engagemnt to hayden.We have heard this all before. Need to move on from this.

  • what an ego

    How can he “let her go” when she’s the one that kicked his a** to the curb. He’s so full of himself.

  • Alex

    Uh … Addiction? Since when is being a cheater an addiction? He cheats because he is a jerk! Sandra can do so much better. He should have gone all Lorena Bobbitt on that Mofo.

  • madison

    Hard decisions or poor decisions? “oh waa, my life has been full of hard decisions…….should I screw this stripper or not?” please….he’s such a piece.

  • do not wanna reveal

    You say that you have a huge hole in your heart? Just imagine what Sandra was going through. Imagine the huge hole she has in her heart. You have no one to blame for this but yourself. You messed up so badly in this situation. You never thought you’d get caught or be exposed, but the truth always come out in the end. And believe me when I say this, absolutely nobody is judging Sandra. Why would we judge or blame her for your stupid mistakes? She wasn’t the cheating.

    And you “let her go?” You don’t own her, Jesse. She isn’t a possession that you “let go.” She is her own person. And Jesse, don’t treat your addiction like a joke or something, don’t enroll in some stupid thirty day program. Enroll in a sixty day or longer program. Stay as long as you need to. Don’t treat it like a joke or something.

    Addiction is a lifelong struggle and don’t think that if you’ve gone to rehab, it’s all better. It’s not. It’s something you honestly have to work on for the rest of your life.

    Jesse, show people you’re serious about helping yourself and stay out of trouble, and people might forgive you. But it’s like we won’t forget it, either. We’ll forgive, but we certainly will not forget. I really hope that you get yourself help, Jesse. I hope it for your sake and especially your kids sake. They need a stable influence, Jesse.

  • Shakira

    Sometimes, the sheer audacity of the ignorant is so appalling that it makes my jaw drop. Jesse has an unbelievable sense of self entitlement and lacks any moral fiber. To even attempt a statement is ludicrous and self aggrandizing. I agree with the previous posts and remain shocked that this man would even speak to this much less speak in the manner he did. “let her go” “addiction”…these are still making me shake my head in utter disgust and amazement. Poor Sandra and yes, as terrifying as it is, she will find her way. God, what a mess you made Jesse.

  • sarah

    I’m with Sandra. This man is an IDIOT!

  • So Judgemental


    She might have had to to try to prevent some tabloid from finding out and making it even more controversial. It would be in the divorce papers which could get leaked.

    The preemptive move would be to do just this. Break the story they way she wants to.. get it all out and take some of the heat off of herself. Hiding the baby before the Oscars had to be a cake walk in comparison to after the cheating scandal broke.

    She had teams of paps following her and trying to get her picture.. the baby couldn’t remain a secret much longer.

  • pretty poet

    Oh please I hate how sex addiction is being used as an excuse. It’s as if saying it’s a disease, so the person couldn’t help himselves. B.S. What it is is Tiger Woods and Jesse James got power hungry and did it because they were rich and famous and greedy and thought they could do whatever they wanted! They call it a disease and an addiction. I miss the old days when it called being a no-good, down and dirty cheater!

  • xxx

    Addiction? Oh, please. Give me a break you weak child. It’s called having no willpower, being a weak-minded immature boy.

  • Jen

    As much as I can’t stand him, I can’t believe Sandra would marry him in the first place, all you have to do is look at the guy or listen to him to notice he is a low-life. When I was watching the apprentice and they mentioned he was Sandra’s husband, I was shocked, she could marry such an i.diot. Guess time proved me right.

  • flo

    More like his whole life has been about making decisions regarding his hard on..

  • r.

    “The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about.”

    For read, dude? Isn’t this the commitment you were supposed to be making when you got married? You can’t expect her to want to stay “lifelong” when you betrayed her? Duh.

  • kookabear

    wow, so being a sleaze now falls under the addiction category.. how convenient. Loser


    I am sure that David ducovney said the same thing but Leona stayed
    with him.. he had hundre women he bedded .. so let him join in the
    marriage cheating scandal… it is nothing new David went to YES
    FOLKS SEX REHAB TOO..only to get his career back and come to
    the Golden Globes and have no one say anything…

    OF THIS BABY.. since they adopted it together.. And now Sandra is
    getting a DIVORCE ..PAPERS SAY THAT she has no dependents to
    pay child support ..get it now his kids not hers

  • anon

    Where are the “sex addiciton” comments coming from? Last thing I read was his rep said he was in rehab for undisclosed reasons or something similar to that. I dont think there are any public statements by JJ, his camp, SB or her camp using the term ‘sex addiction”. LIke most things in entertainment it was used by the media and then assumed as the truth. BTW I think when a soon-to be ex uses the phrase “need to let them go” usually is not intended literally but figureatively. Im defending or judging either of them. There are kids involved and private issues. I wish them the best for the kids.

  • nat

    Obviously we don’t blame Sandy, she is a great woman, and deserves to be happy. You on the other hand, you are hard to describe.

  • mickey

    That’s so nice of him to “let” her go. What a tool. She cut him loose, I don’t think she was looking for his permission. Furthermore, why would anyone judge Sandy because he is moron? It is VERY clear that he is the jerk in this situation, not her.

  • You’re all MORONS

    “Let her go” has nothing to do with keeping her chained in the basement and forcing her to remain married. Instead, he’s not going to object to the dissolution of the marriage. He’s agreeing to her demands, one of which appears to be that he can no longer be the father of a child they applied to adopt and brought home together. As slimy as his cheating was, this is a difficult thing to do. If he wanted, he could put up a real stink about it all and make it as difficult as possible for Ms. Bullock, but he’s decided that it is best for her to “let her go”. If he wanted, he could petition the courts to go through with his part of the adoption and become one of Louis’ legal parents. Instead, he’s bowing out to make it an easier situation for her at her request.
    Quit being so overly dramatic about it. He put his penis where he shouldn’t. He didn’t burn down an orphanage.

  • Bye James


  • shaar


    “Where are the “sex addiciton” comments coming from?”
    His own mouth! didn’t you read all of his statement??? He specifically says in there “Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life”. So before making comments, take the time to read his statement in FULL.

  • Gab

    Jesse James really should’ve just kept his mouth shut. Addiction? And what is this “do not judge Sandy” crap?!? Noone’s judging her, moron! We’re all judging YOU and your lying, cheating, scab-sucking ass!

  • LYNN

    Sandra, I love you. I believe in you and I hope that you will listen to your own heart. This is between you and your husband forget the gossip and the two of you will make the right decision for all thats involved. Bless you.

  • truth hurts

    She was stupid marrying him in the first place. The man was married to a porn star. Probably was into @nal, fist-ing, dirt-y sanchez, facial c*m, object insert-ion, @ss rimm_ing, gang b@ngs or whateva gross stuff porn stars do. LMAO What did she think? that she would be enough for this animal? she didn’t even have enough b00bs to give his **** a b00b massage. Women can be so naive.



    The entire sordid business of people DISTRIBUTING press releases regarding adultery.

    Confess to your spouse and your priest.

    Then, kindly shut-up!

  • LYNN

    I am also angry with the press for branding Jessie as a nazi and racist. While they were printing this bull these two people chose to protect their son. All this was kept private. I think these people in the press want jews and black people to hate him too. Jessie if you have a problem please work on it because I believe your wife was your best friend. I do hope you can still be in that little boy,s life. I still see you as good people, but you messed up with you wife. This is so different from Brad. Jennifer and Brad’s marriage was already over. He already had one leg out the door.

  • Rattlesnake

    you would think she would have better taste in men, he ugly

  • sj

    that little boy is lucky he wont have to grow up with Jesse as a father. What scum. Sandra will be an amazing mommy
