Michelle “Bombshell” McGee sparked a Jesse-Sandra marriage storm
The celebrity husband of actress Sandra Bullock on Thursday broke his silence on reports that he cheated on his Oscar-winning wife, telling People magazine he used “poor judgment” and asking his family to “forgive me.”
Jesse James, a custom motorcycle manufacturer and reality TV star who married Bullock five years ago, said he took responsibility for his actions but stopped short of admitting that he had an affair with another woman.
Bullock, 45, who won her first Oscar last week, on Wednesday pulled out of the London premiere of her hit movie “The Blind Side” after U.S. celebrity magazine In Touch Weekly published claims by a model that she slept with James last year.
“It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way,” James said in a statement to People.
“This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me.”
Celebrity media late Wednesday reported that Bullock had moved out of the home she shared with James.
It gets worse.
The tattoo model claiming a torrid affair with Jesse James, wife of Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock, once posed for a photo shoot clad in Nazi regalia and showing off what appears to be white supremacist ink.
A bikini-clad Michelle McGee, inked from head to toe, sports an SS hat and swastika armband as she suggestively brandishes a death’s head dagger in a racy photo shoot laid bare Friday on TMZ.com.
In one photo, the letter “W” is inked on McGee’s left leg, and the letter “P” on her right. “We’re told Michelle tells people it stands for “white power,” TMZ reported.
The gossip website said the snapshots were taken almost a year ago by a photographer who is unnamed in the report.
In child custody documents filed in January, Michelle’s ex-husband says she “makes the Nazi salute,” and has a swastika tattooed on her stomach.
Bullock was blind-sided Wednesday after McGee made public sleazy text messages she says the Oscar-winner’s husband, Jesse James, sent to her during a torrid 11-month affair.
The sleazy pics depict a woman who’s a 180 from “Miss Congeniality,” who’s ridden her clean-cut All-American image to box office superstardom, and an Oscar for “The Blind Side” just weeks ago.
Jesse James yesterday moved to quell the damage from the sordid scandal shrapnel raining down, as further lurid allegations were aired.
“There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me,” James said Thursday in a public mea culpa. “It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way.”
The reality star didn’t come straight out and admit the affair, insisting instead that the “vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded.”
Shortly before James’ public apology, the tattooed brunette sent texts to In Touch that she said were exchanged during the 11-month romance – much of which took place while Bullock was away filming “The Blind Side.”
Some of the texts were sent as recently as March 14, McGee said – just days after Bullock won her Best Actress Oscar with her proud husband by her side.
“Just think’n bout u this morning,” James wrote to McGee, who says in an online profile she’s 24 years old.
“You need it?” he asks in another message.
“Yup,” McGee replied, the texts say.
On Wednesday, Bullock canceled her planned appearance next week at the London premiere of “The Blind Side” due to “unforeseen personal reasons.”
