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.

Hi Harvey,
after all the hype about tiger woods, and sandra and jesse, i wrote a comment re: a woman who sued "the other woman a while back", i asked if you heard and remember this, which you had blown off for something more important like what type of veggie burger you had for lunch!, anyway, you might want to read the paper, it happened again, this time for 9 million dollars (can't wait to hear whats on your lunch menu for today!) BONER!

OMG? Did Sandra know about this? I can't image that she didn't. If she did, then she shouldn't be surprised about "Bombshell" or the other tattooed stripper that has come forward. As much as I like Sandra I have to say that she had her blinders on with Jesse. It's sad because she clearly loved him and he totally betrayed her. I hope he gets what he deserves for that.

MY EYES!!!    

Candace, a boss or employer should NEVER have romantic relationships with their employees. The employer is setting themselves up for sexual harassment charges. That's the way the laws work. Even flirting is a no-no.

A good (female) friend who was a supervisor where I worked got caught in a trap like this. She dated a sleazy co-worker who turned around and threatened to sue the company for sexual harassment. It was a scammy load of BS so he could quit and get a settlement from the company, but it worked.

If an employee flirts with you, write it down (e-mail the report to yourself), and don't forget the fact that you denied it, and if it continues, FIRE THEM. If they want to date you so badly they can do it working someplace else.

I'm not saying the employees are always gold diggers, but why take the chance?

While Sandra is away working hard on Movie locations, thinking that her husband is working long hours at his job, this azzhole is making a joke out of their marriage. So maybe she didn't know anything.

The reason Sandra trusted her man is because she is not the type to cheat. Usually it is the ones that do the cheating that don't trust others, they feel if they are doing it so is everyone else.

THE TIME IS NEAR    

Man I just love how when the damn bursts all the fish come out of hiding with their storys. Lets see if Sandra has an ounce of pride left or is she going to swallow her pride and do what Elin is doing with Tiger. I wonder if she went for an aids test BTW. Would be a good idea.

Who I really feel bad for is his daughter. She loves Sandra and vice versa. Sandra made herself a big part of that childs life and now its all going to be gone. Heck if she does stay he may have his daughter to thank. But no way she stays with this amount of crap coming to the surface. He is guilty as sin and if Sandra at 30-40 years old isn't hot enough to keep you honest what will he do when she is nearing 45-50?

To the general public, Jesse and Miss $725,000 are just two people who signed a contract. Since no criminality is alleged and since no civil liability is admitted, there is no victim to shield as in the Roethlisberger case. So why is her name not printed?

RE:::BTW, Norton is blocking this page

Posted at 10:10AM on Mar 24th 2010 by Allen Ridak

don't have Norton,but my hi-tech security suite is also having a prob. with the site today,ie:it asked me for permission to access,says there's spyware attached.I cleaned it,(says its a trogan).Do a spyware cleanse while here & its fine.
On topic: if this is true,then it kinda changes the whole dynamics.....as in its kinda hard to feel bad for SB if she knew of this & didn't book,if she didn't know,OMG,how clueless & trusting can a woman be?Maybe too pre-occupied with other things.If she knew & stayed,well,she's kinda getting what she deep down musta known would continue.Questionis,IF she knew,how the Hell could she stay??EEEWww.Damn TMZ! Now my 'loyalty' is shifting! Tho HE & that skanker wannabe important ho are still vile.

TMZ does not have its fact straight. This didn't happen in 2007. It happened in 2000 - well before Sandra met Jesse. My proof: This article is archived from 2005 - before TMZ is suggesting it happened - and it says it happened in 2000:

http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/story/bullock-warned-off-brutal-boyfriend-by-exemployee

MadMike: Jesse and Janine separated in early 2003; He filed for divorce from his preggo wife in October 2003 and he didn't even meet Sandra until December 2003 - so your insinuation that he left his wife for Sandra is totally ungrounded and impossible.

TTTT, This couple seems like a complete mismatch. Maybe it's just me. I wonder what the terms of their divorce will be and who has more money (to lose).

Exclusive? Since when is something that happened in 2007 exclusive?

Harvey, explain how you keep this A-Hole as the top story and pushing other gems like Blohan eating dirt down the page?

Also, how many updates on this idiot and that skank freak with the inked forehead do you really need? Especially when you're repeating yourself?

Your desperation for site visits is really showing and wearing thin
