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.”

    Bitter, party of one, your table is ready……..

  • cam

    nah dude, you broke a provision in your beard contract when the nazi photos etc leaked. you cant attract controversy to your cash cow, and you lost your son cause of it. and yea, hollywood law is unfair. sandy’s beards are tough leather-and-studs guys but they are still ‘good guys’ – but you messed it up yo. new beard time

  • Dizzy Miss Lizzy

    Did he even fight to keep the “kid?” He just walked away as far as the media reports went. He seems to be a good dad to his other four kids–so it is hard to believe Bullock would have denied him any contact.

  • Mads_22

    Hollywood law? lmao. You have nobody to blame put yourself Jesse. Five years later and your ex and her son have moved on with their lives. Leaving you in the dust. Talk about someone still being bitter, and he was the one who cheated. What did he expect to happen? Honestly.

  • Casey C

    BOOHOO CRY ME A RIVER. look at him try and seem like hte good guy for admitting he was screwing someone else.

  • jane

    i know it may sound different – and i don’t think what he did was right at all – but he was dumped into the spotlight and a life he was 1,000% not familiar with and i think he reverted to his former self and wanted some normalcy with the stripper. i blame hollyweird for the problems these couples have and not the people themselves. hollyweird and that money and excess leads to really bad decision-making. i’m sure he regrets what he gave up!!!

  • tjpm

    this guy is some piece of work…he lost a child because he was been photograph in Nazy attire. Who would let a man like that around a black child…what would he do, use the kid as target practice…???

  • Joyce Montgomery
  • Utope

    He’s the only one that is still talking about this. WHY?! Because he likes the attention. And yeah, given that he was caught with Nazi gear I doubt any judge in his right mind would give him any kind of custody. That guy really has delusions and he’s still making excuses.

    Don’t even talk. Someone who puts sex above people is just gross. Go away.

    A lot of men are gross then!

  • Shelby

    Yes. They should never get married. Just pay for sex and leave good girls alone. They don’t deserve them.

    he should just go away. the more he says, the more he reveals what a nutcase he is.

    Quote from Jessie What’s-his-name:
    “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.

    Just a universal comment. J. James, you’re a real dick. I don’t think anyone ever loses a kid due to infidelity?
    Wait, let me restate, You’re a STUPID dick.

  • mndr

    He was already an attention whore way before he married SB, he had his own trashy reality show starring his porn star ex wife before he married SB. This guy loves the attention of being married to Sandra Bullock.

  • S.

    Ewwww. Just… ewwww.
    I’ll never understand why Sandra married that creep. What was she thinking???

  • andrea samson

    seriously? wow what an a**hole! bet he got some dollars for that interview. how nice of him to bring his disgusting affair back into the medias. cheaters are just the worst kind of narcissists not giving one sh*t about other people…

  • pumpkin

    Jesse just shut your trap. You just make it worse when u speak. I know guys like Jesse and they LOVE trashy girls, he would never have been happy with Sandra she is too classy. Go crawl under a rock and stop crying over a kid you met a few times. What did he expect? To raise the kid with Sandra? Lol.
