Jesse James' Ex -- I'm Following Jesse to Texas!

8/9/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James is going to have company in Texas ...because his ex-wife Janine Lindemulder claims she's moving to Austin to be closer to their daughter Sunny.


As we previously reported, the judge in their child custody case had ruled that Jesse could take Sunny to Austin, so she could be closer to her former stepmom Sandra Bullock ... who has a close relationship with the 6-year-old.

But this morning in an Orange County courtroom, Janine's attorney announced that the former porn star intends to follow Jesse to Austin ... and wants some money to help with the transition.

Janine wants $9,000 a month in child support -- with $3,500 of that earmarked for Janine's living expenses.  But she didn't get it .

For now, the judge ordered Jesse to pay Janine $50,000 for attorney's fees ... and set his child support rate at $2,000-per-month.

As for custody -- Janine will get Sunny on the weekends ... right after school lets out on Friday afternoons.

UPDATE: The judge just upped Jesse's child support payments to $3,000 a month. Outside of court, Janine told TMZ she considered today's hearing a "win" ... and that she's ready to head to the Lone Star State.

She is a pig....when her daughter gets old enough to read and know what this whore has done for $$$$ I don't think she will be around her much.What decent man would ever marry or have a relationship with this thing...she has no morals. My heart go's out to the daughter. The judge should took one look at her and her history and not let her near the child.She belongs in the gutter.

That kinda money is a drop in the bucket to Jesse, but she still doesn't deserve a cent. As far as us blue coller guys, that would bankrupt us! Just goes to show, No P#$$I in the world is worth that kinda money. At least for us regular guys....

I agree that this doesn't make sense. It is the non-custodial parent which would be Janine, who pays child support, not the custodial parent. I hope when they move to Texas Jesse takes Janine to court and get the support order changed. That is bass ackwards. Oh and she is on something if she thinks that he should give her money to live on. Get a job Janine like every one else you lazy, abusive, mooch.

She wouldnt have any visits if she was still using. AS part of her agreement to visit she has to stay clean and open for random drug tests. I dont understand why she will get $3,000 a month.Maybe its spouse support. Anyway good for her and her daughter. Since Sandra is a good person Im sure she understands Sunny needs her mom to. I just dont understand the crazy move Jessie is doing moving to Texas. Maybe they want to work on their relatioship without the paparazzi driving them crazy and cool thigs down for awhile.

Sending healing thoughts and love from far away to Chandler, Jesse Jr, and Sunny. After all this I have lost faith in all the adults involved in this.

She should have to pay him child support not the other way around. Our legal system is such a scam.

Janine,awsome of you is all I can say!!!Your love for your daughter should and WILL in the longrun outweigh any secondary love from Sandra Bullock, and as far as that a@@$%#^ of an ex husband goes SHAME on him for trying to discredit and destroy the unique and powerful love of a mother and a child.So you made some mistakes in your past ,whippy f##king do,your standing up for yourself now and taking responsibility for your past errors,and trying to move forward.However this prick of an ex,seems to think that he's above the world.Hangin there girl,stand tall and proud and good on you all the way.LOVE Emerald.

Sounds to me like he got stuck with one dumbass judge. The person who has actual custody of the child is the one who gets the child support, it should be her paying Jesse. Also all she did here was show that all she was really looking to do was get money out of this, she does not care about Sunny she just sees her as $$$ signs

Thats something I don't understand why Jesse has to pay her some child support payments even though the child DOESN'T live with her mother full time?
