Jesse James a 'broken man,' says attorney pal

Posted: 05:47 PM ET


By Blane Bachelor

Jesse James's friend and attorney, Joe Yanny, says the biker mogul is a "broken man" - and that he's still in love with wife Sandra Bullock, despite the scandal surrounding their marriage.   

Yanny, who has known James for several years, told the Associated Press that allegations of James's infidelities and the resulting media "feeding frenzy" have ruined his friend's life. James entered a treatment facility this week, but Yanny declined to say what the West Coast Choppers owner is being treated for.

The latest predicament for James, 40, is a citation for vandalism involving a photographer's vehicle near James's Long Beach, Calif., bike shop, CNN reports.

Local detectives reportedly were given a copy of the video that celebrity photographer Ulises Rios captured of the March 25 run-in, which shows James and another man confronting Rios in an SUV parked near James's bike shop. The incident resulted in slashed tires, a dented door and a scratched window on the vehicle, claims attorney Mark Haushalter.

It wasn't the "feeding frenzy" that ruined James's life but rather the infidelity. I'm certain he is still in love with his wife (her money that is). I hope Sandra has sense enought to cut the cord with this loser.

So Jesse James is a broken man Hu!

Let us hope that when Sandra Bullock get's done with him that he will be a "BROKE" man

At least Sandra Bullock wasn't foolish enough to adopt Jessie James children from a former marriage to a stripper. Otherwise James would be attempting to get child support and drain Sandra Bullocks life savings to support his lifestyle.

I doubt James hasn't been kicked to the curb before, so why is his attorney stating he is 'a broken man' now? Pure crass, a plea for sympathy which is futile and entirely undeserved. Go back to your stripper queens Jessie, I seriously doubt I'll see you on the red carpet again during the rest of your life.

Jessie James lawyer tells all he's a "Broken Man?" I don't doubt it; I just don't want another person to tell everyone else want's wrong with them. One thing nobody likes is 'A Joe Know It All.'

Yes he is a broken man,a broken vows man.

And Sandra not for nothing, but you had to know you were with a Nazi sympathizer. I am looking at you funny now. Wasn't that enough to get you to leave?

More reports today that Sandra Bullock is filing for divorce. Good for her if that is accurate, toss that snake to the curb and don't look back Sandra!

Broken man, oh gee. Feel sorry for him, how about the one he wronged. He bought it on himself, so suffer the consequences and stop acting like a wimp. Get a grip.

Says he still loves her, well he can ask himself why did he do what he did to someone he loves. He must be deluding himself and everyoneelse.

Theresa   April 3rd, 2010 5:35 am ET Jesse James is a broken man is he....not much sympathy here. I wonder if this man used a condom ........doub it! If Jesse James is a broken shall we describe Sandra Bullock...I'm certain broken as well as devastated !!!!! These sexually addicted men irritate me....never do they want to take responsibility!!

Sure he is and the moon is made out of cheesecake, storks bring the babies and the fairies watch over your sleep.

Single women..Leave married men alone..they have a wife who has sacrificed , children who adore their Dad & yes, sometimes grandkids..they will never leave these people for youhe has too much to lose & nothing to gain. he worries @ his reputation..he may make promises but chances are he will not leave his woman ,,he may give you money flowers jewelry trips/domestic & abroad/ but he will not leave ...of course there are exceptions, there always are...some married men wear wedding rings & some do not ..
