His Own Words: Jesse James Reacts to Divorce Filing

Posted: 11:20 AM ET


"My whole life has been full of hard decisions.

"The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart.

"Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go. Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life.

"I have always taken great pride in proving people wrong. That time has come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about.

"I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been an amazing wife, mother, and best friend, for the over 6 years we have been together."


Do you think Jesse James deserves a second chance?

Absolutely not. He deserves nothing. Married a porn star before Sandra and cheated on her with tattoo model? He is what he is. Trashy.

mcmargie, Arizona   April 28th, 2010 12:35 pm ET

Second chance? No way. He got away with cheating on Sandy for 6 years with multiple women. He is only sorry he got caught. He would have gone on with this charade for years to come and then to claim that he's an addict? That's bull! What kind of addict Jesse? He couldn't even admit what kind of addict he is. And how can he state that the addiction has taken two of the things he loves the most in life. The most? What about the other 3 or 4 children he has? It doesn't say much for them. He needs to keep his mouth shut.

And he obviously has an obsession with the Nazi regime. What a creep. And who is judging Sandy? He is in denial. Everyone is on her side!

Good for Sandra. Congratulations on adopting your baby. He is beautiful. And I am so happy she picks a baby in "our own backyard" instead of traveling to other countries.

NO! Sandra get on with your life without this lowlife. You deserve loyalty, love and commitment. This guy is a loser. Life is too short.

What's that, some kind of sick joke.

That A-HOLE does'nt have a heart.

Gimme a break.


Jesse James   April 28th, 2010 1:10 pm ET

Have I told you how good
It feels to be me
When I'm in you?
I can only stay clean
When you are around
Don't let me fall, oh no

If I close my eyes forever
Would it ease the pain?
Could I breathe again?

Maybe I'm addicted
I'm out of control
But you're the drug
That keeps me from dyin'
Maybe I'm a liar
But all I really know is
You're the only reason I'm tryin'

I am wasted away
I made a million mistakes
Am I too late? Oh yea
There is a storm in my head
It rains on my bed
When you are not here, oh

I'm not afraid of dying
But I am afraid of
Losin' you

Maybe I'm addicted
I'm out of control
But you're the drug
That keeps me from dyin'
Maybe I'm a liar
But all I really know is
You're the only reason I'm tryin'

When you're lyin' next to me
Love is goin' through to me
Oh it's beautiful
Oh yea
Everythin' is clear to me
'Till I hit reality
And I lose it all
I lose it all
I lose it all
(I lose it all)

You're the only reason
Yeah, you're the only reason I'm tryin'
(May be I'm addicted)
Oh, I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin'
(May be I'm addicted)
Don't want to lose it all
Maybe I'm a liar
But all I really know
Is you're the only reason I'm tryin'
Yeah, you know I'm addicted
Yeah, you know I'm addicted
Yeah, you know I'm addicted

Now Jesse is realizing that following Satan (the liar) all those years is only an illusion. Satan will promise everything and anything so that you follow him into the eternal fires of damnation. If Jesse truly wants to learn how to be a real loving, kind, considerate, faithful, wise and understanding man, husband, father, friend, son, brother ... he needs to run to the nearest Bible study group to read, comprehend and abide in God's wisdom. God is the only one that can show us how to LOVE by abiding in His Truth! Jesse, as we all do, needs to read God's truth every day and practice what Jesus teaches us to be the best that we were meant to be.

As for any of the non-believers out there still mocking Jesus' truth because you never knew or read to figure out that there are 3 earth ages, 1 prior to the 2nd one we are in today, and the final earth age that comes when Jesus returns.

I'd say Jesse is finally being awakened by all the pain Satan has caused. Through the pain of Satan comes Jesus' peace and love.

Isn't that the typical response of a person that has had an affair. Why do they have to have that affair ...just for their own pleasure & then say what a mistake they've made. Too you have all the time in the world to do whatever you want. Jesse James certainly messed up. From everything I've read & heard Sandra Bullock is one of the nicest people!!! And to top that..they were in the process of adopting that beautiful baby boy!! Jesse James & Tiger Woods deserved nothing when it comes to a meaningful relationship. Neither 1 thought of anyone but themselves & only what THEY wanted. Tiger Woods had affairs while his wife was pregnant. That makes me want to vomit!!!

kaye   April 28th, 2010 3:27 pm ET

as the mother opf 3 daughters grmo of 2.. hell no way!...wish her well and go live anyway you please without her or her little baby.. how can u say u love him so much when she took him away so soon? its not him u love or her.. its the idea of them u want!

gerald Jolly   April 28th, 2010 3:57 pm ET

@ Theresa, I completely agree with you.

Jessie, is a punk, and a looser.

What bothers me most is that Sandra fell for his line of B.S., I believe she is a very intelligent woman, and I cant for the life of me understand what she saw in the creep in the first place.

A reformed??? BIKER???

How about a reformed PUNK LOOSER in my mind that sounds much more appropriate.

It may be hard to do, but if she can, I hope she takes him to the cleaners, and forces him to sleep on the street with the rest of the STRAY DOGS


Jenkeel   April 28th, 2010 4:44 pm ET

Hah! Big fat liar that JJ is! Leave poor Sandy out of this one, you Nazi lover! I hope that she finds a real man next time, and not a cowardly little tramp lover!
Move on Sandra, with your new baby and forget this person ever existed!

Smith in Oregon   April 28th, 2010 5:17 pm ET

Typical Hollywood PR like the utterly disgusting Karl Rove trying to re-spin whatever transpired into making Bush-Cheney look like saints.

Sandra Bullock immediately removed her wedding ring the moment several women came forward with independent allegations of having lengthy affairs with Jessie James during the time of Jessie's marriage with Sandra Bullock which is expressly tabooed in her pre-nupt agreement.

Jessie is claiming some full month later it was his decision to let Sandra Bullock divorce him? That's BS, something I would expect coming out of the mouth of Karl Rove or Dick Cheney.

Sandra Bullock appears to have entirely written off Jessie James a full month ago and has spent the past two weeks telling his children Goodbye!

Cindy   April 28th, 2010 5:25 pm ET

It's really between Jesse James and Sandra Bullock. She seems like a very nice woman, but I think it's important to keep in mind that she knew he had been married to a porn star. Should that not have been the first clue.

Heather   April 28th, 2010 5:30 pm ET

He didn't 'let' Sandra end the marriage. HE ended the marriage when he couldn't keep his pants on with other girls. Sandra is so much better off without him. She is a strong woman and will be just fine.

deb   April 28th, 2010 6:34 pm ET

jesse james is a waste of life.... just another monster who doesn't care about anyone but himself..... and, he'll never take responsibility for what he did..... all he says is that he has an addiction, and that he made mistakes...... that's bs there is no addiction, there's just a guy who did what he wanted to do, and now got caught.... thank god sandra didn't get AIDS...... because the kind of guy jesse is and the kind of woman he sleeps around with are the sleaziest ive ever seen.... she's very lucky she didn't catch the aids virus..... but, sandra is smart and understands that being with that guy is a gamble..... what did she ever see in him.... he's gross, and looks like an old man..... he acts like he's five years old.... i think he saw sandra as a mother symbol, and caretaker..... like a sugar momma..... not love....

German Titiv   April 28th, 2010 6:43 pm ET

Jesse James does not deserve a second chance, I want Sandy for me !!

Theresa   April 28th, 2010 8:04 pm ET

@ Grald's too bad some women think only with their heart not their head 1st. The person I married the 1st time was a Big Mistake!!! But @ least I can use the excuse I was young & foolish. I will never regret that I married him...if I did I woulsd show no respect for my daughter. The best thing that happened to me. I truly learned what I didn't want or needed the 2nd time around. It took me 17 yr. to decide the single life was not what I wanted in my mature years. Too many of my friends married the wrong type the 2nd & 3rd time..they are women thatthink anyone nis better than beiing alone. That is the exact opposite of what I think living is all about. My present husband is a gem..we've known each other 18 yr. & married 11yr. (sorry about leaving the e from your name..I sometimes type faster than I should ..then mistakes I do make!!!

angela   April 28th, 2010 9:25 pm ET

I am going to say something different in support of Sandra. There must be something wonderful about Jessee that Sandra saw, otherwise she wouldnt have loved him. The problem is his other half. To completely bash him is to bash her as well remeber. Nobody is perfect people.

Amanda   April 28th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

Being cheated on is like being murdered but living to tell about it. Everything you believed, everything you thought, everything you knew was nothing but a lie. It is a pain that is so unbearable but you do survive.

Cheaters only think of themselves. They never think about the ramifications when caught but boy do they cry, plead, beg, and show remorse for their actions! NOT! It is all about them being caught.

Jesse those comments are pathetic. How insulting to the public to tell us to not judge Sandra. Judge her? Excuse me, I don't recall hearing or reading anything that she did to be judged upon. Give us all a break and seek help. Don't look to the public to have sympathy upon you, just get help, turn to God and focus on your children.

BTW – the comment, " I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb." HELLO! Sandra has moved on!

You go girl! Congratulations Mommy! You are going to do well! What a lucky little boy you have!

John Baird   April 29th, 2010 1:38 am ET

Sandra & Jesse were doomed from the begining,the are not cut from the same should have never started in the first place..Jesse need's to return to his root's.

Dodie   April 29th, 2010 11:08 am ET

@Theresa April 28th, 2010 8:04 pm ET

Your story is a beautiful one. You are a wise woman. I am delighted you found a gem for a husband. You learned from your experience and moved on. This shows the depth of your character. Thank You for expressing you life experiences. You are certainly an asset to LKL blogs.

Greg   April 29th, 2010 1:27 pm ET

He's FULL of s**t!

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 5th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

Yes I know what kind of addiction he has is called an addiction to himself.......(selfishness)!

It would be up to Sandra herself whether she is prepared to give him a second chance. But can a leopard change their spots. That's the big question here.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   May 5th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

Yes I do agree that some of his comments were pathetic, it might have been better if he didn't make a comment at all. Silence would have spoke volumes.
