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.

The guy who tried to extort money from Letterman made a mistake in not hiring Gloria Allred.

Jesse and all sexually active employers should use contracts that include a David Lettermin clause: "If it moves and I nail it, it is part of the job and you may be subject to a performance evaluation, but not additional compensation." Retaining Gloria Allrid may be cause for dismissal, subject you to retaliation and result in denial of kitchen, team and restroom privileges. Public disclosure will get your name and number posted on CL Erotic Services.

Women in LA are world renowned as gold digging money-hungry ho's. A woman won't even look at a guy unless he's driving a BMW or Mercedes. It's that bad down there. It's all about status and wealth and what a man has got to offer. If you don't portray wealth, you don't have a chance in hell. Of course guys play right into it as well. They will live in their mother's basement at 40 years old in order to own a Hummer to impress women. What a sad life!!

She kept a t-shirt as evidence to extort money from him. Tramp!! Gloria Allred trains her girls well. How much of the $700 k went to Gloria?

There is no such thing as consensual sex when a boss is shtooping an underling... unless a contract has been signed waiving the underlings right to sue.

I'm kind of amazed that no one else thinks that maybe just maybe Sandra knew about everything, every woman, every bj etc....

I know a few married couples who have "open" relationships, they play by their own set of rules....and it works for them. Perhaps JJ and SB had their own rules worked out...one of which was "Don't get caught!!" But Jesse did, now Sandra has to figure out what to do....play the wife in the dark and send him packing or "forgive" him and take him back...

If she really didn't know anything then I am sad she has to go through all of this....if she did then I kind of feel bad for Jesse because she is hanging him out to dry

What will be sad is if he end up with $50M as part of the divorce settlement. Then you have to almost admit that he wasn't dumb at all. Hope she had a prenup. Otherwise boy did she get 'screwed'

it's called fraternization (yes my spelling is bad), and it's illegal. anyone who gets sexual advances by a boss (male or female etc), even if they act on them, it can be cosidered under duress and force in fear of their emplyment status.

prooving it without any acts is a lot harder, she had the physical proof (totally gross i tell you), so she could sue.. but in the fishbowl, nothing like that stays hidden.

Yeah, it's pretty messed up considering she has a shirt with his DNA or whatever, yet she could sue for harrassment. The shirt shows that she was a willing participant. I highly doubt Jesse strolled in her office just throwing it around. I'm pretty sure if that was the situation, we would have heard about this in 2007.

I know in some states, maybe all of them, but a worker can claim sexual harassment, even if that person was a willing participant in some kind of activity. This is because of the idea of the "relationship" will at some point either end and make for grounds of the employee losing their job, or at some point, the boss or other employee will expect more, and the employee's job will be contingient on whether or not they follow through.

She did things right, I suppose, but it is hard to feel sorry for her in a victim-type role.

This isn't the FIRST sexual harassment suit he settled. Another woman had filed one & settled earlier.

can't be a victim when you participated. All she is is another ho looking to cash in on sandra's fame. If jesse wasnt married to sandra bullock, i doubt we would even know much about him. I mean i dont watch those kinds of shows about motorcycles or anything like that. He's trash. I only know who he is because of sandra. AND hes a big disgrace. Any woman who wants to admit they gave him head, is sad. Reason this woman decided to use sexual harassment as a way to not associate herself..but still, trashy as he is. She needs to keep her mouth closed......and its disrespectful to those who really ARE sexually harassed.
