Sandra Bullock in Custody Battle with Jesse James’ Ex
Fresh out of jail, the ex-wife of Monster Garage star Jesse James (aka Mr. Sanda Bullock) is now seeking custody of her and James’ 5-year-old daughter, Sunny. One of her first stops in her custody battle was Good Morning America. Seems like the logical place to start when you’re trying to get your daughter back. Right?
This story has bad news written all over it. Where do I even begin? I’m sure deep down the girl’s mother, Janine Lindemulder, sincerely wants to do right by her daughter and be a good mother. But, I’m guessing her little trip to GMA was more for publicity than for the welfare of the child. I’m just saying. Obviously, she knows her ex’s movie star wife would make this story headline news.
But the problems started way before that. Hello! The woman just got out of jail and has a history of drug and alcohol abuse problems. It just sounds like this woman, a former porn star, is only looking out for herself. Perhaps she’s trying to regain whatever sort of fame she once had. If she was really interested in getting her child back, she should be hard at work trying to clean up her act and prove that she deserves custody. She definitely should not be appearing on morning shows and dragging bold-faced names into the muck in order to steal a piece of the spotlight. Seriously, Sandra’s role in this, while important, is peripheral. It should first be between the biological parents. But the name Sandra Bullock gets coverage.
From all accounts, it sounds like Sandra and Jesse have been doing a pretty good job quietly raising this little girl while her mother was off doing God knows what. If anything, Jesse’s ex is only bringing more attention to her serious shortcomings as a mother and not garnering public sympathy. This matter should be settled out of the public eye. It’s just too bad Janine Lindemulder is doing everything she can to ensure that doesn’t happen.
