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.

J James is a piece of work! What is he going to follow Sandra all around ther world to try and be with her?????????? The step parents have no right...everytime he gets married does the other spouse have rights to the kids, what about all the women he slept with.
He's paying support because he makes so much more money and her time with her mother needs to be the same as with the father. I'm sure he doesn't spend much time with them. Why did he move away from his other two kids??????????????? He's a loser. Sandra is trash or has mental issues if she ever hangs out with him again.

I feel so sorry for Sandra. It must be so sad to be used and be cheated on from the very beginning of a relationship. All those years were a big lie.
And now she has gotten herself attached to porn stars, biker, drugs, alcohol, affairs, strippers, trailer parks... and for what? Those kids have mothers and at the end of the day their mothers will make the final decisions... and everyone knows this.
Also Janine will be there for Sunny on the weekends so Sandra will not have that much time with Sunny. Probably she'll see her after school for a while. It's not the same as when her and Jesse had full custody that she could come and go with Sunny as she pleased. Plus Janine will make sure that the decisions involving Sunny will be made by her and Jesse. Now that Sandra is not married to Jesse, she is not really their stepmom. She is just another person who cares for those kids.
Jesse really screwed it up for all of them and he is making it worse by following Sandra with the whole circus to Austin. The poor older kids having to leave their friends in CA, the older one should be really upset since she is graduating in a couple of years. If Sandra really cares she should have sacrificed herself and stayed in CA or fly to CA to see those kids and not have allowed Jesse to move to Austin.
To top it off, Janine will be there to see and hear about her every move. So we'll be hearing about it in the tabloids. If Jesse really loved Sandra he should let her go and let her move on.

Well, if I were rich and my ex made 1000 per month and I knew my child was going to be with them every weekend, I would certainly be sure my child is in a good,clean environment and would be glad to help make that happen. Sandra is so loaded, why doesn't she come off of some of her money to set Janine up for the sake of Sunny's well-being? Or, is it again another case of making the child suffer to punish the mother? SHE IS THE MOTHER and kudos to her for her determination out of love for her daughter. She'll take Sunny and live in a cardboard bos, if she has to. I would do the same with my three kids. And, they would not want to be apart from me because I'M THEIR MOTHER! Both Jesse and Sandra are from the same sick mold.

The celebs we have had living in Austin, have seemed to be nice, laid back people that enjoy the fact that Austin is an educated, easy going community, and have blended in well. If Jesse and/or this ex of his are expecting Austinites to fall all over them because of their flash in the pan "fame", I think they're in for a rude awakening.

I don't understand this theory that because he makes more money than his dried-up porn ex-wife he should help support her. And now he has to pay the attorney fees that she racked up. What if he didn't have lots of money? Who would pay them then? And no, I'm not a guy...I'm a female. This smacks of "let's pay her for being a failure". I thought you had to work for what you have. If his ex can't support their daughter then she needs to step aside. And the theory that Sandra should pay is so completely whacked I don't even know where to start. The person who posted that sounds like someone who's a lot like JJ's ex.
