Sandra Bullock Blindsided From Husband Jesse James Alleged Affair With Tattoo Model Michelle McGee

Yesterday we were hit with the news of Sandra Bullock‘s secret adoption of 3 1/2 month old baby Louis, who she is planning on mothering alone. Today, Jesse has come forward to talk about his failed marriage, and also about baby Louis, who he was supposed to be the father of. Jesse and Sandra had been attempting to adopt for 4 years, but a suitable match only presented itself in January.

Jesse says that his whole life has been packed full of hard decisions (yeah, like should I sleep with this tattooed Nazi woman or not? hmm, tough one) :

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.”

Yes, Jesse, we all know your familiar with the feeling of a huge hole (oh burn), but you kind of brought this one on yourself. Jesse was aware of the adoption when he was off having fun times with Michelle McGee.  He then continued on a big rambling  Tiger-esque speech about how he loves Sandra really, and that he made a huge error in judgement:

“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 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.”

“I 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.”
