Sandra Bullock in custody battle with porn star

Her husband's ex-wife is also a convicted fraudster

The Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock is being dragged into an unpleasant legal battle to prove that she is a better parent than her husband’s former wife, the star of more than 100 pornographic movies.
 

The 45-year-old star of Speed and Miss Congeniality is married to Jesse James, a former motorcycle mechanic and television presenter. Since January this year, they have been bringing up Sunny, James’s five-year-old daughter, while the girl’s mother, Janine Lindemulder, was serving a six-month sentence for tax evasion.
 
Lindemulder, the star of dozens of adult films including Where The Boys Aren’t 10 and Janine’s Got Male, had previously shared custody of the child with James. Supported by Bullock, he has now asked a judge in Orange County, near Los Angeles, to rule on whether Lindemulder is a fit mother.

In a statement to court, James suggested Sunny may not be safe with his ex-wife, adding that she should be ‘restrained from allowing the child around pornographers, drug addicts, guns and firearms, felons and other unsafe environments’.

She has just been released from a six-month prison sentence for tax evasion. The tattooed blonde remains in a halfway house in Los Angeles until the end of this year when she can seek custody of her daughter.

Bullock, who is estimated to be worth £100 million, has never had children of her own, saying her late mother persuaded her to put her career first.

Lindemulder, 40, had previously expressed fears that she might lose her daughter. After being charged in July last year, she sent a text message to James which read: ‘U WIN. Sandra has her baby congrats.’
