  • A rep for the star has confirmed the pair signed documents last week, formally putting an end to her five-year marriage to biker Jesse James

    Sandra Bullock and Jesse James have formally put an end to their five-year marriage, after signing documents last week, a rep for the Blind Side star has confirmed.


    The pair – who split in April following Jesse’s affair with tattoo model Michelle McGee – cited ‘discord or conflict of personalities’ as official reasons for the divorce.

    Reaching the final stage in the legal process will come as a relief to Sandra, who is now free to complete her adoption of baby Louis as a single parent.

    Sandra and Jesse started the adoption process more than four years ago, and finally brought the gorgeous tot home in January.

    But the new parents decided to keep the news until after the Oscars, after Sandy was nominated for hit film, The Blind Side.

    And after recent events, Jesse has agreed to let Sandra continue with the adoption alone.

    Breaking his silence on the split, the biker recently claimed responsibility for the breakdown of their marriage.

    ‘There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me,’ he said in a statement.

    ‘It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way.’

    Meanwhile, Sandra has kept a dignified silence, maintaining a low profile and focusing her attention on five-month-old baby Louis.

    Speaking for the first and only time about the events at the MTV Movie awards last month, she addressed rumours, joking: ‘One, I’m not dead. Two, everyone has cellulite, not just me. Paparazzi need more flattering lenses. And whoever established the high road and how high it should be should be fired.’

    Closing her funny speech with a signal she was ready to put the past behind her, she said: ‘Now that we have done that, can we please go back to normal?’ Therapy’s really expensive.’
