Jesse James: Childhood Abuse Made Me Cheat

Jesse James is claiming that his childhood abuse led him to cheat on his ex-wife Sandra Bullock with numerous women.

“I grew up with a huge amount of shame and fear and abandonment on my shoulders from a very young age and I think, you know, the way my mind rationalized [cheating], ‘Well, you know, I might as well do whatever I can to like run her off cause she is going to find out what I am anyway and leave me anyway,’” the 41-year-old James told Nightline.

Jesse also claims his father was physically and emotionally abusive. “He beat my ass pretty good a bunch of times…I just remember, like, clinched teeth, strained-neck look on his face,” Jesse shared. “My whole childhood, I never had a chance to be a kid. …I was always scared.”

Adds Jesse, “I don’t think I have a sex addiction where I’m running around trying to have sex with everyone and I can’t stop. I think I do things to sabotage my life, including having extramarital affairs, texting, overworking myself, injuring myself, doing stunts and stupid things. I think I do a lot of things in my life that I shouldn’t be doing that aren’t conducive to being a perfect husband, you know, and the affairs are just one of them.”
