Jesse's XXX Ex -- Our Daughter Loves Sandra B

3/24/2010 9:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James' ex-wife does not want Jesse's marital problems to get in the way of another special relationship -- the one her daughter shares with Sandra Bullock.



Janine James -- the mother of Jesse's daughter, Sunny -- tells TMZ, "If Sandra decides to keep a relationship going with our daughter Sunny, I would in no way stop that."

She added, "Sunny loves Sandy and vice versa. She's welcome to be a part of every aspect of Sunny's life."

Despite the fact that Sandra ripped Janine in a legal move to obtain custody of Sunny last year, Janine seems to be grateful for everything Bullock did saying, "She has taken care of our daughter as if she was her own ... she sacrificed much ... and I will forever be indebted to her for that."

TMZ hits a new low    

Yeah, this isn't passing a smell test with me either. Sandra Bullock is an extremely wealthy woman. She was the highest paid actress last year of all actresses in the world: a little over $20 million for 2009 alone.

So it makes some business sense to keep little Sunny connected to Sandra. Like when it is time for the big ticket items as someone previously mentioned: braces, college, wedding, house, and I will add the nickel and dime things along the way: school trips, new clothes every year, a car, iPod, and whatever her heart decides it desires as she grows up.

That makes sense to me. What mom invites another non-blood relative to hang around forever?

Sandra Bullock kicks ass. I hope this doesn't crush her. There are so many people who want to give you hugs and cadburry eggs!

In divorced situations where a woman inherits stepchildren and that marriage does not work out, it is awkward and difficult as the (outsider) to maintain the same level of relationship with the stepchild. Most of us have to move on to avoid another layer of confusion on behalf of the child/children. At the end of the day, the biological parents are the "parents" no matter how good or bad they are on behalf of (their) children. As a professional woman without children, I put myself in the same type of position--around the same age--as Sandra Bullock. I attempted to rescue the children and make everything safe for them but (at the end of the day) in years to come most of us are considered no more than a fill-in babysitter or caregiver due to the fact they do not have our genes.

Hopefully, Sandra Bullock will confront her co-dependency and need to rescue in special relationship through psychotherapy, move away from these despicable actors (Jesse and ex-wife), and more rapidly towards a truly loving and committed relationship with a man who would like to adopt a child together so they can be the legally-responsible parents of a child and create a non-dysfunctional family together.

Jesse has millions on his own. A divorce doesn't mean diddle to his finances. Get honest people.

21. She's star struck. Any other woman, regardless of how much her daughter loves her, she would do everything in her power to keep her away!

I disagree. From your statement, you must not be a mother. If a mother truly loves her child, then selfish and silly thoughts and games don't come to mind. A loving mother will want only what's in the best interest of her child's life and well being. A mother wants her child to be happy. Sunny is so attached to Sandra already...that to have that relationship stop, would only hurt Sunny.

Janine - Good for you and it is great to realize that you are concerned for your daughters welfare and it is classy of you to realize that regardless of your ex-husband BS you know that your child and Sandra have nothing to do with. Kuddos and lots of luck to you!

It's always wonderful when a parent can put their childs needs before their own. Which is what Janine James, is doing. It's ashame that more people aren't like that.

I think Janine knows that since she is living in a half way house, at the moment. that sunny is better of with Sandra. I have been in a similar situation. The children's mother wanted to take off and I adopted her kids. I have never regretted it and I ended up being great friends with the children's moms. I ended up caring for her as much as I do her children. Their "dad" never sees them any longer.

I just hope Sandra can put the hurt aside, so little Sunny isn't the one who loses in this god awful mess. The loser here should be Jesse. On a side note, have y'all noticed that every picture you see of Jesse and Sandra, she looks totally in love and he looks disinterested? What's with that?

Sure are a lot of know-it-alls here, considering not one of you has ever met any of these people.
