Jesse James: My Ex Was Stoned and Drove Our Kid

6/9/2010 4:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James just filed blistering legal papers against his ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder, claiming she was once drugged out of her mind with their young daughter in the car.

Jesse is fighting Janine's attempt to wrestle custody and visitation from Jesse.  Currently he has full custody of 6-year-old Sunny.

On Friday, Jesse filed several declarations with the court ... obtained by TMZ ... one of which was written by Jesse's sister, Julie James England. Julie claims two years ago -- when Sunny was 4 --  she got a call from Janine, "slurring her words, telling me she's letting my niece, Sunny drive."  Julie says Janine told her she had taken "some numbing drugs her neighbors gave her from Mexico and she drank tequila" and that she and Sunny were "going to get munchies."

Julie claims she sent a friend to Janine's house, who found Janine "passed out in her car in the garage with Sunny."

And there's a lot more. Sgt. Mark T. England, Jesse's brother-in-law and a medic in the Army, wrote his own declaration, claiming Janine once asked if he could score her narcotics, including Soma, Vicodin, Lunesta and Ambien.

England says he's seen Janine perform at a strip club in the past and do lines of cocaine before getting on stage.

Jesse claims he can provide Sunny with a stable environment -- and even though Janine says she's cleaned up her act, Jesse believes she poses a high risk to their daughter.

A custody hearing is set for June 17.

So sick of this guy! Not interested in seeing another story about Jesse. The way he looks was bad enough, but when he opens his mouth, you just can not understand what SB was doing with him for 5 minutes let alone 5 years!

Soma, Lunesta, & Ambien are NOT narcotics. They are sleep aids. Vicoden may technically be a narcotic, but it is the weakest one in existence.

What a frickin douche. She probably had to take the prescription drugs just to get through a day being married to him. The child belongs with her mother. Sure she did things that were not right (who has not) but she went to rehab and repaid her debt to society. James on the other hand has done nothing but lie, cheat and blame others for his conduct.

I feel sorry for Janine, as I'm sure she doesn't have the bank to hire an entire law firm like Jessie has nor to get stuff like this posted in the media. Everything he says about Janine he participated in himself. He's such a freaking hypocrite and lying Hitler freak and he's selfish to boot.



Jessie doesn't give a damn about his daughter if he continues his attempt to keep Sunny and Janine apart. Janine has every right to be a mother to her child and she was until Jessie contacted the IRS about Janine's taxes.



Jessie plays dirty, and is dirty to the core. I hope the judge will see through Jessie's fancy lawyers and at least make sure that Janine sees her daughter on a frequent and regular basis and perhaps give Janine joint custody but allow the child to continue to live with Jessie for the time being since Janine has just gotten out of the half way house for tax evasion. Yet Janine still should have joint custody of Sunny. Jessie won't like that, he's completely selfish.

I feel bad for the little girl. While Sandra Bullock was around, she actually might have had a shot at some normalcy in her life, but now for her it's like the clock has struck 12 and she's back to being the cinder wench. Absolutely tragic. Shameless parents, regardless of whether or not they're rich and famous, are still shameless parents. And Jesse James AND his ex-wife have nothing good to offer that little girl.

Typically, you attract what you are. Law of Attraction;
which makes one wonder how Sandra could've gotten mixed
up with him. To be polite, I'll take the kids out of
the equation here but......



Jesse, his Ex's, and all other associates are just
a classless bunch. The armpits of society.

jesses a douche....he has a problem with how his ex wife lives but he digs it and pervs on it and has a line of other women just like her in his life....its ok for HIM to use these women and discard them just as fast becuase they are trash in his mind. in his mind they are dirty whores and yet he somehow in his mind is still cleaner then what he lays with? I would question if a man who is atracted to women being degraded and abused should be raising a daughter at all. yeah his wife makes a living off her body but so did most of jesses dates....i just dont get how he can get all high and morale...yeah the chicks he rolls with are trashy...but he CHOOSE that. He knew she was trash when he impregnanted her and it didnt stop him then. Jesse TURNS women into trash...chews them up and spits them out aqain and wants to parade around pointing out their flaws? whatever flaws they have they are flaws jesse shares with them. hes no better then the ex wife. kid should go to foster care before her daddy starts treating her the way he treats all other women. he hates women and should not be raising one. how will HE teach her to respect herself when he has no respect for anyone.

Um, wow...    

While I don't like what he did to Sandra--AT ALL... I really and truly think that he has the child's best interest at heart... He seems to genuinely care about her... Although, in light of all of his recent infidelity, that doesn't reflect well on him, especially in a Judge's eyes...BUT...the infidelity is a FAR CRY from using drugs in front of/around kids, and endangering their lives by trying to drive under the influence...But the children will have a long, hard road ahead of them--just from what they've been through so far... Divorces, having their dad gone while in a so-called "treatment", and now, Sandra who seemed to completely care about them, living in another state... Parents don't understand what a profound impact they have on their kids...things they see, things they hear...and when they're old enough--things they'll read via the internet... SO sad...

Jesse is such a hypocrite! Sunny didn't have the opportunity to know her dad for the first few years of her life. He refused to be there when she was born, Janine was accused of carrying someone else's baby - conveniently blamed – he didn’t want to be part of his child's life. Done with Janine but still married and wanted NO PART of Sunny and he lived it.



Sunny was the 1st baby born in Long Beach that year (just after midnight on New Years) and there is a picture of Janine and Sunny in the Long Beach Press Telegram announcing Sunny as the first LB baby of the year. Very sad for Sunny that her Dad was not interested in her birth (or her). A friend tried to get him to be there but he did not want to be there for her birth. Great dad.



Janine and Sunny went to Oregon and were together there. The 3nd Mrs J was the one that wanted to have the kids and family together. He has never been accused of putting ANYONE in front of his desires.



Janine has made some bad decisions in life - especially JJ - but SHE was the parent who was there for Sunny originally.

It's telling how these pathetic and horrific things - not just with this family but so many others (Shauna Sand, etc)- come out months afterwards when someone uses the information that they've been keeping as a tool to get what they want. Why don't these things come to the surface and action taken to protect the child right away? If Jessie thinks his ex was such a POS then what qualities made him get with her and stay while this stuff was going on in the first place? What does it say about the accusers when they KNEW all this crap was going on in the first place and never did something about it until it could be used to their benefit? Ridiculous.
