Sandra Bullock

Files for Divorce

in Austin, Texas

4/28/2010 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Sandra Bullock filed for divorce in Travis County Court in Austin, Texas ... and the reason it didn't surface until now is because Sandra turned it into a puzzle.

The case was filed under Sandra's initials -- backwards ... B.A.S.  

Jesse James was also identified by his initials -- J.J.G.  Jesse's middle name is Gregory.

The document was filed April 23.

As for grounds of divorce, the petition says, "The marriage between Petitioner and Respondent has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectations of reconciliation."

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, "There is no child under eighteen years of age or otherwise entitled to support who was born or adopted of this marriage and none is expected."

According to the docs, Sandra is a resident of Texas.  Jesse "is of legal age and agrees to proceed in Austin, Travis County, Texas."

According to the petition, the parties were married in 2005 "and have ceased to live together as husband and wife."

As for the firm Sandra hired -- Chaffe McCall --  she's used the firm in the past to litigate a tax issue.  A lawyer in the firm claimed a man who set up fraudulent tax shelters had given Bullock advice, after her dad saw an ad for tax shelters in an in-flight airline magazine.

Good sleuthing to find the divorce petition TMZ. I agree Sandra knew ALL ABOUT Jesse's racism. There is NO WAY she didn't know. She's about saving her career.

Way to go Sandra!!!!
Kept 'em all guessing/speculating/in the dark about YOUR business...
How refreshing to see a "Hollywood Celeb" who DIDN'T run to the media with a convoluted sob story...
Sandra handled HER business with tact and decorum, which could serve as a lesson to many...
As for the baby, who cares where he came from (Louisiana, DUH!) Sandra will make an excellent Mother without needing a "man" to assist her...Jesse screwed the pooch, and has no reason WHATSOEVER to whine or cry...
Congratulations Sandra...I hope things look up for you very soon...

The adoption was started years ago. It had nothing to do with the "nazi" crap.



In fact I'm so sick and tired of "nazi smazi" talk. Nazis were German nationalists period, the "northern europeans are better" or "white supremacy" had been talked about way before the nazi movement. There is no such thing as an "aryan", they actually believed the "aryans" came from a long lost island of atlantis. They were wackjobs and their theories have been proven wrong. So why are people still so attached to them? Get a life people!

When KOOKY KLOWN went through his divorce with the Cookie Monster's sister, all he got was his Toot-Toot, his Boing-Boing and his chicken gumbo recipe. There is no support in La-La Land. His lawyer was I.P.Freely.
