Friend says Jesse James wants to save marriage to Sandra Bullock
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Jesse James is a “a broken man” and is hoping that rehab and some privacy will help him recover and save his marriage to Sandra Bullock, his friend and attorney said.
Joe Yanny told The Associated Press that allegations of marital infidelity against James and the ensuing media “feeding frenzy” have ruined the biker businessman’s life.
“This whole thing has destroyed Jesse’s entire universe,” Yanny said. “Right now, he’s a broken man.”
He said James is still in love with Bullock and hopes the marriage can be saved.
James checked into a rehabilitation center after weeks of reports that he cheated on Bullock throughout their marriage. Yanny declined to say what James is being treated for, but said people shouldn’t assume it is for sex addiction. He also wouldn’t rebut specific allegations lodged against the West Coast Choppers owner or say whether there are plans for the couple to get a divorce.
“The allegations back and forth about what happened – those are private matters to be resolved between a husband and a wife,” Yanny said. “It’s not appropriate for a public airing.”
James released an earlier statement saying he had used “poor judgment” and deserved “everything bad that is coming my way.”
