Jesse James Huge Sexual Harassment Settlement

3/24/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned a former high level, female executive with West Coast Choppers settled a sexual harassment lawsuit against Jesse James and West Coast Choppers for more than $700,000 in 2007, while he was married to Sandra Bullock ... according to documents.

The woman claimed between 2006 - 2007, Jesse James repeatedly made sexual advances, which allegedly included sexual acts.

The woman kept several suggestive emails from Jesse. In one email in 2007, which is included in the file, Jesse wrote to the woman, "Need anything before I split?" She responded, "Some Tums." Jesse replied, "I have some special fluid that you can drink and it makes it all better ...."

And, she claims after an oral encounter with Jesse, she kept a telltale Clintonesque T-shirt.

The woman quit in 2007 and hired Gloria Allred's law firm to represent her. No lawsuit was ever filed, but on September 27, 2007, the matter settled for $725,000.

In the settlement docs, Jesse neither admitted nor denied the allegations.

Bet BOMBSHELL is feeling pretty stupid right now. She sold her story for only $30,000 .... Wonder how much Jesse would have paid her to keep her mouth shut!

$750,000 - Take note Michelle. You could have received much much more than 30K.

Seriously ... how could Sandra not know about this lawsuit?

Those lemon tofu burgers sound delicious, thanks for the recipe!

Can't say I'm a huge fan of Bullock's acting (she always seems to be in such cheesy films) but she strikes me as a lovely, down-to-earth person with a great sense of humour. She does not deserve the shame this moron is bringing down on her head. She needs to cut all ties to him and his children immediately. Yes, the hurt will be devastating in the short-term, but to stay with him would bring far more heartache and most likely kill her career just when it has reached its peak.

I thought that it was very curious when Jesse was on "Celebrity Apprentice" last year and he refused to say anything about any personal or financial details between him and Sandra. He even seemed to blanch whenever Trump mentioned Sandra's name. Maybe these two where like "ships passing in the night". But seriously folks, if this is all you're worried about, get a life. Oh yeah, here I am writing MY comments.

A hula hoop is a toy hoop that is twirled around the waist, limbs or neck. Although the exact origins of hula hoops are unknown, children and adults around the world have played with hoops, twirling, rolling and throwing them throughout history. Hula hoops for children generally measure approximately 28 inches in diameter, and those for adults around 40 inches. Traditional materials for hoops include willow, rattan (a flexible and strong vine), grapevines and stiff grasses. Today, they are usually made of plastic tubing.

The past few years have seen the re-emergence of hula hooping, generally referred to as either "hoopdance" or simply "hooping" to distinguish it from the children's playform. An International Holiday World Hoop Day has become the hula hoop holiday celebrating the circle around the world. Every year, in numerical sequence starting from 2007-07-07 and continuing through 2012-12-12 hoopers dance in every city and country to raise money and donate hoops to others who can't afford them. Modern hula hoopers can be found among fans of jambands like The String Cheese Incident and participants of Burning Man. Many modern hoopers make their own hoops out of polyethylene tubing. They are much larger and heavier than hoops of the 1950s. These hoops may be covered in a fabric or plastic tape to ease the amount of work in keeping a hoop twirling around the dancer, and can be very colorful. Some use glow-in-the dark, patterned, or sparkling tape, and others are produced with clear tubing and filled with plastic balls, glitter, or even water to produce visual or audio effects when used. LED technology has also been introduced in the past few years, allowing hoops to light up at the flick of a switch.

What befuddles me right now, today, is why Sandra would run off to Texas leaving her step-daughter abandoned and completely confused. That speaks volumes about the whole custody case. This was not the act of a woman caring about a child but about her own self interests.

I would be amazed if that out-of-court settlement wasn't paid by Sandra Bullock's side, to keep up her Ms. Congeniality-America's Sweetheart image. There is one born every minute — and Sandra Bullock isn't one of those fools. And she has "people" to do diligence (background checks), just like all wealthy, prominent people have for their personal safety, security, privacy, et cetera. She knew exactly what she was getting into. There is more to this story. I am not saying Sandra Bullock is a kinky closet skank, but people are complex — as most people over the age of 12 know.
