When we first reported on Jesse James‘ custody battle with Janine Lindemulder, it was a fight between the husband of an adored movie star and his ex, an imprisoned tax evading porn star now married to a convicted drug dealer. But over the last year, the odds have improved for Janine, thanks to “chronic cheater” Jesse‘s inability to stop banging tattooed pin-up girls. Hoping to improve her odds even further, Lindemulder has dumped husband Jeremy Aikman, knowing his sordid past makes it even harder for the courts to ignore her sordid…everything.
“Janine and Jeremy have split. They decided to put Sunny first and the timing just isn’t right for them to be together right now.” a source tells Radar Online. “Jeremy cannot live outside California for his own legal reasons, so, it would not be possible for him to leave the state if that is what the courts permit Jesse James to do…she is appreciative to both Jesse and Sandra Bullock for looking after her daughter while she was in prison. “But she is Sunny’s mom and she will do whatever it takes to play a big part of her life.” Hmm…leaving your husband because he can’t join you in chasing your kid across the country? We’re glad we’re not the judge who has to decide whether this is the sign of familial devotion or not.

Janine Lindemulder, ex-wife of Jesse James, says he’s had a history of infidelity long before he married current wife Sandra Bullock. “He’s a chronic cheater,” she told InTouch Weekly, who broke his alleged affair with fetish model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. “I feel sorry for Sandra because she was so in love with Jesse that she was blind and gullible. She once said, ‘I finally have a man who has my back.’ And all I could think was, ‘No. You have this man who does it behind your back.’” Ironic that Janine would feel sorry for the woman she’s accused of trying to steal her child, isn’t it?
That conflict of interest might explain why she’s dishing such dirt on a woman she allegedly feels sorry for, claiming to have had phone sex with James while he was dating Bullock, and that he told her he’d “made a huge mistake” six months after marrying The Blind Side star. Lindemulder, currently in a halfway house for parole violation on tax evasion charges, is reportedly planning to renew her custody battle with James over their six-year-old daughter Sunny.

Jesse James‘ alleged affair with fetish model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee might affect more than just his marriage to Sandra Bullock. James has been locked in a brutal custody battle with ex-wife Janine Lindemulder and the porn star is more than willing to take advantage of his current drama. Though currently unavailable to even visit 6-year-old daughter Sunny, TMZ reports Lindemuller will seek custody of her child with James, assuming that he and Bullock will soon divorce. Lindemuller, currently residing in a halfway house after violating parole on tax charges, is married to an ex-convict and has been accused of missing multiple planned visits with her daughter. She was arrested for beating her then-husband James in 2003.
Ironically, considering Michelle McGee was the one to reveal her relationship, the tattooed Twitterer is now suffering her own custody drama. Ex-husband Ron Medica unsuccessfully filed for emergency custody of their 5-year-old son Avery in San Diego Friday. “I need protection for my son,” he said in court documents detailing her fondness for white supremacist imagery and webcam stripping. “[McGee] will bring these curiosity seekers and glory hounds down on herself and Avery, totally confusing and frankly scaring him…I will not continue to expose him to the kind of life Michelle desires and seeks: full on, pornographic, party all the time.” Medica also expressed concern that she might flee to Australia with a boyfriend. Their next court date is scheduled for May.

Sandra Bullock‘s Oscar nomination isn’t the only good news she received this week: husband Jesse James scored a small victory in his custody battle with ex-wife Janine Lindemuller, keeping the porn star from regaining visitation rights with their 5-year-old daughter Sunny. Lindemuller initially lost custody after a six month prison term for tax evasion, and James has argued that her criminal activity (she’s currently in a halfway house for violating parole) and risque lifestyle (she’s married to an ex-con, runs an X-rated webcam from their home) should keep the pin-up from regularly interacting with Sunny—even making phone calls. “She texts at least twice and up to 20 times a day, demanding to talk to Sunny,” said James. “But sometimes she’ll go a week at a time where she doesn’t make a call. She has no filter on what she tells [our daughter] about prison. There’s a lot of conversation about prison or jail and things that I don’t think a 6-year-old can comprehend or process.”
While Lindemuller will still be allowed to make daily phone calls to her daughter, she won’t see Sunny in person anytime soon, having missed four of her last five scheduled visits, including the Christmas Eve quality time she fought for in court two months ago. Earlier, Lindemuller had accused Bullock of wanting Sunny as her own on Good Morning America (“What would give her the right to take away my daughter?”), a claim the Blind Side star denied (“it couldn’t be farther from the truth”). James and Lindemuller will have their next court date in June, after monthly joint therapy sessions.
