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 for her! One of the few people in Hollywood who knows how to keep her business private and she is surrounded by people who know who to keep their mouths shut!

I can't believe people believe everything they read. JJ is not a Nazi. It was a photo taken of him with the hat on. Is it in poor taste-yes. Did he cheat on SB-yes & it was wrong. I believe he deserves a second chance & hope they will work it out...one day.

I'm with Joe (comment #34) on this one.



[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."]



Well then whose baby is that she's holding on the cover of People magazine? Adoptions don't happen overnight!

I cannot believe the vulgar rant of the person referred to as writer @14. Sandra Bullock stood in front of millions of people and sang her husband's praises, she trusted him, loved him and said, "he has my back." Now this idiot is blaming her for his behaviour. Clearly he/she is a mysoginist. Why is it we love to blame the spouse for the appalling behaviour of their husband/wife!! Sandra - do what you always do, stand tall, the rest of America and people everywhere are with you and your lovely little boy!!

I am no longer critical of Jesse for cheating with that the bombshell from my hometown. Sandra cares more about proving how Hollywood liberal she is by making that movie and spending years arranging to adopt an African-American baby, leaving her hubby alone and sexually frustrated and ignored. DUH! NO man or woman wants to be #3 in priorities. She's the villain, not him. She should have cared more about Jesse than making a political statement. You know I'm right, but you not supposed to speak the truth these days.

You have to file for divorce in the state that you were married in. I'm guessing they were married in Texas. I also guess you don't have to file under your legal name?

She says she adopts an African American baby in January but nobody knew about it. Then she files for divorce and says there is no adopted or birth child. Sooooo either the doc isn't legal as it stands or there was no adoption in January. Surely the baby isn't some kind of brilliant pr scheme meant to clear her name and get far far away from the stigma. Surely not. Right?
