Jesse James Wins Big Custody Victory

7/20/2010 6:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Jesse James/Janine Lindemulder custody battle just ruled Jesse can take daughter Sunny to live in Texas.

When the judge in Orange County make the ruling, Janine -- who's been trying to block the move so she could visit Sunny -- dropped her head on the table and began sobbing. Shortly after she screamed, "I'll move, I'll move!"

The judge ruled Jesse and Janine will have joint legal custody, but Jesse will have physical custody.

One small victory for Janine ... the judge allowed her to have physical custody of Sunny until school starts in Texas. 

TMZ spoke with Janine after the ruling, and she said she could not compete with Jesse and Sandra and the "nice things they provide."  She said she may let Sunny go to Texas early and hopes, "Someday I will be her mother again."

It's great to read how a father is taking the dominant role in raising his child (so rare these days), but somehow I get a baaaaad feeling about Janine. As in, she's not going to take the news well at all. Probably push her off the edge.

I love the time stamps on these "Breaking News" posts.. This has a nice time of "8:58"am PDT...That's odd because THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY nothing about this at that time on TMZ. Harvey Levin is the new Dr. Brown...TAKE ME BACK TO THE FUTURE!

Janine needs to try to control herself and stop trying to control others.
Good for little Sunny!

As long as Jesse James does what is best for his daughter he's all good with me. Janine needs to stop acting like a doped-up child and start being a mother. It isn't about her anymore; it's about the child and what's best for her.

Though Janine brought this situation upon herself, I still feel very badly for her. It is heartless to move a child so far away from a parent who is financially unable to visit often.

Thousands of men have to deal with this same issues and it's 9/10 the man forced to move.

Plus she wasn't a good person to begin with.

Thank God, this little girl will have a life!!! Read the mother's emails to the sister, just repulsive. Go sell yourself, without your daughter.
