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.

Fraudulent statements on legal petitions are generally frowned upon.

Good for Sandra. Now she can get those trashy people out of her life and focus on her career and her son. What an embarrasment Jesse is. And kudos to her for not replying to that nasty strippers apology. Now everyone can move on to the next big break-up.

As a black woman, I believe Sandra is sincere. I've liked Sandra for years before she became famous and I think she's a good person. I've also seen people fool their spouses as to their true self for years. Love can be blind. I wish her luck in the future. That baby is one lucky little guy to have her for a mom. She could find a great guy who doesn't cheat but she can survive without a man.

She followed investment advice from some guy her dad found in an in-flight magazine? Somehow, Sandra doesn't seem like the smartest bulb in the pack. Hopefully, her adoption of this child will not turn out to be another disaster.

She was about an 8 1/2 on looks, and now with a black baby, she just dropped 2 more points in the "I want to hook up with her" category.



That is what EVERY man wants, a divorced white woman with a black baby. See what I mean about EVERYONE in Hollywood being stupid and just good at playing pretend?

Geez people...Can't you comprehend what you read?...



"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."




Neither party is asking for child support, which is what this statement addresses...Sandra is keeping the child, and she sure doesn't need a damned dime from Jesse to support it...I assure you, the courts will agree...

Oh Sandra, your so stupid you deserve everything your getting and more. Anyone who says "I've always been very sceptical about marriage, because I only want to do it once. I want to do it the right way" then starts shlepping around with and marries Jesse James of all people must have dirt for brains. I mean did any of us not see this coming, well aside from Sandra?
