Jesse James Fights For Move To Texas

Jesse James and ex-wife Janine Lindemulder are back in court in a battle for custody of their 6-year-old daughter Sunny.

James has requested a move to Austin, TX., where he and his three children can be closer to ex-wife Sandra Bullock and son Louis. He has purchased an 8-acre, 5-bedroom home “in a very private estate in Texas hill country,” only 17 miles from Bullock’s residence, reports People.

He also claimed that since Lindemulder’s release from a halfway house on June 3, daughter Sunny “acts out, she’s more agitated, she has sleeping problems,” and said, “The more contact she has with her mom, the more fear she has to sleep in her own room.” James added,

She’s thriving, doing well in school, she has an amazing relationship with her brother and sister and Sandy. We’re getting to a point where we can live in peace. [Moving to Texas] will only make things better.”

James also discussed his fear that Lindemulder, who is a recovering alcoholic, has “unresolved personal issues,” saying, “I think she has yet to hit rock bottom and I fear [when she does] it will involve Sunny.”

Lindemulder is reportedly open to therapy and would like to “improve communication” with James.

James is set to move to Austin, TX. on July 31, and a court appointed attorney for Sunny told the courts that they believe it is in her best interest.

    Sunny is better off staying with Jesse he has the means to take care of her and I know that her Mom is doing her best but in her case she will likely relapse and wont be able to care for a child.

    The ironic part of this is he has the nerve to call names about his “First choice to sleep w/raw” a porn star..but he’s the stable one? Then he cheats on America’s sweetheart and wants to stalk her by moving. This family is dysfunctional and noone thinks it is. He shouldn’t move that child away from her mom..She’s anxiety ridden because she wants to be w/her mom and Jesse knows this because he destroyed her stability.
