Jesse James Talks Sandra Bullock Split Five Years Later

Jesse James Talks Sandra Bullock Split Five Years Later

Jesse James is opening up about his split from ex-wife Sandra Bullock and how losing his adopted son Louis was the hardest part of it all.

The couple broke up in early 2010 after five years of marriage when it was revealed that Jesse had been having an affair.

“The relationship part I was able to put [aside],” Jesse said in an interview for In Depth with Graham Bensinger. “I had to stand up in front of the media and take full account for what I did. And I took it all. I took 100 percent of it right on the chin. Nobody does that. Everybody denies it… I’m the guy that ruined my marriage because I banged some stripper. There’s got to be some flaw in my personality that made me think that was okay.”

“The painful part was about Louis, who we adopted,” he added about the son that they adopted in January 2010. “As bad as stuff was between us, we adopted a kid and things got kind of good for a little while and we had that kid to focus on, and, boom, it was over in 24 hours – gone, done.”

“I got divorced and lost a kid I adopted because of it,” Jesse continued while discussing Louis. “Whether that’s fair, whether I should have lost a kid due to infidelity, which I don’t think anybody ever does. But I think with ‘Hollywood Law’ that’s totally fair.”
