Once again Hollywood is abuzz with stories of the marital rift between Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock and so-called bad boy and biker Jesse James. With rumors of divorce now swirling around the couple, it would appear that once again even the rich and famous can end up at odds with each other, although according to the tabloids this is mostly the husband's making.
As a Birmingham divorce lawyer and family law attorney, I have represented numerous clients across Alabama. From what I've seen, it makes no difference if you live in a large city such as Birmingham, Montgomery or Huntsville, or smaller municipality like Fort Payne, Fairhope or Muscle Shoals, separation and divorce can become the option of last resort for some folks. As for Ms. Bullock, this appears to be the case as well.
According to reports, Bullock has may be on course to divorce her husband of five years, with the public weighing in on the subject as well from coast to coast. The recent revelations of James' alleged affairs with five separate women, including tattooed model Michelle McGee have apparently opened Bullocks eyes to her husband's possible infidelity. The news of McGee's admission that she had an alleged 11-month affair with James seems to have left little question in Bullock's mind where she stands in the equation.
Based on new articles, close friends of the Hollywood star have said that Bullock has “definitely” made up her mind to divorce James. She has apparently been consulting a lawyer and is preparing to for divorce. Other insiders state that James is hoping that his stint in rehab and some privacy will help him recover and save his marriage.
Describing him as a “broken man,” one of James' friends is on record as saying that James is still in love with his wife and that the whole affair has destroyed his “entire universe.”
According to news reports, 40-year-old James recently checked himself into an undisclosed treatment facility to “deal with personal issues" and to try and save his marriage. In a public apology last month, James apparently admitted to having poor judgment in regard to the extramarital affair.
