The custody battle between Jesse James and former porn star ex-wife Janine Lindemulder is heating up after an alleged affair between the biker and tattoo model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee hit the tabloids.
Not only has Jesse James reportedly lost his wife, Sandra Bullock, over his alleged affair with Michelle McGee, he could lose partial custody of his daughter as well. Jesse James’ ex-wife has reportedly filed legal paperwork to reclaim at least partial custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Sunny.
Janine Lindemulder lost custody of Sunny after being convicted of tax evasion, according to TMZ.com. Lindemulder allegedly believes the possibly impending divorce between Jesse James and Sandra Bullock could open the way for her to gain back some of her parental rights. Lindemulder is reportedly currently living in a halfway house after serving out her prison term.
A judge reportedly refused Lindemulder’s previous petition for custody partially because James’ wife Sandra Bullock was considered a “stabilizing family influence.” Without Bullock in the picture and with the affair scandal all over the press, James could face difficulty in preventing Lindemulder from reclaiming some custody of their daughter.
The court date for a hearing in the custody battle is set for June 14.
