Jesse James' Stepmom -- Abuse Claim is 'Crap'

5/26/2010 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James' former stepmom claims Jesse's allegation that his dad broke his arm when he was 7 years old "is a bunch of crap."

Janina James Coan, who was involved with Jesse's dad since Jesse was 6, tells TMZ she was "appalled" by what Jesse said about Larry James during the "Nightline" interview.

Coan -- who married Larry when Jesse was in high school but eventually divorced -- tells us Jesse had a variety of injuries -- including broken bones -- as a kid, because he was into motocross.   But she scoffs at the notion that Jesse was abused.

Coan says, "Larry was the most caring father, the kindest father who would do anything for anybody.  He loved Jesse to death and would brag about him all the time."

Coan does say, however, that Jesse and his dad don't get along.  The tension started, she claims, when Jesse was 16.  She claims Jesse's dad found out his son and a friend allegedly robbed a Fotomat and called the cops on him.  Coan says Jesse ended up in juvenile hall and was very upset that his dad turned him in.

I was wondering when we'd see the dads reaction on here... LOL I personally don't know who to believe, cuz it's not as if he was gonna go on national tv and admit "yeah i beat him"... I think if you take a little of each story maybe you'll come to the truth...

Ahhh yes, the victim defense. A real man will take accountabililty for his actions and learn from them. The sooner we stop placing blame on others for our own weaknesses, the better our society.
Man up. You screwed up. Take accountability and make something out of your life.

How about the serial cheater part, Dad innocent of that too? I agree, once you are an adult it is your problem but it is a shame that so many adult children are paying the price in passing down behaviors of the sins of the parents or living tormented. Break the cycle, Jesse.

How does that work?
She married Jesse's dad when he was in high school, how would know what happened between Jesse and his Dad at age 7?

Jesse man-up an own your mistakes. I was molested by more than one person as a child. I didn't take drugs, drink, get pregnant, cheat, or abuse anyone. Even if your father did break your arm how does that explain cheating on your wife. You are s*** and Sandra should have figured that out base on your lifestyle before she married you. You cheated because your ego wanted to cheat. Cry me a flippin' river you loser.

He's an *******, pure and simple. You know he hired one of those companies that celebrities go to when they are involved in a scandal to fix things. These stupid @ss interviews are part of that.
BOO HOO moron.
He got sick of everyone yelling "NAZI!" at him when he was walking down the street.
Not. Buying. It.

Jesse needs to quit blaming everyone els for his sleazy ways. He hurt his own children and shocked a lot of people with his behavior. Boo hoo dad broke my arm. Don't believe any more of his lies. Why cry wolf now? He is a cat on a "hot skillet."
