Jesse James: ‘I’ve paid the price and then some for basic infidelity’
NY Post: Motorcycle mogul Jesse James believes that he has “paid the price and then some” for cheating on then-wife Sandra Bullock with multiple women and embroiling the star in scandal when she should have been celebrating her Oscar win in 2010.
“I think I’ve paid the price and then some, you know? I don’t know anybody anywhere that’s had to endure what I had to endure for basically infidelity,” James told the website Yahoo! OMG. “It’s just the nature of my life. People always will want me sainted one minute, and strung up the next.”
James appears to have forgotten that his infidelity was far from “basic.” James’ mistress, Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, was a heavily-tattooed former stripper who had appeared on adult websites. She claimed to have had unprotected sex with James for months, and revealed to the world that she referred to him as her “Vanilla Gorilla” because he was so “well-endowed.” Several of McGee’s tattoos hinted that she was perhaps a white supremacist.
In addition to McGee, three other women stepped forward, saying that they had also had dalliances with James. However, James now claims that he should be forgiven, as he did the right thing by publicly apologizing to Bullock after the revelations.
“I stood up like a man and admitted my wrongs and what I did and all that did is make every [bleep] tabloid everywhere across the world come after me even harder,” he continued. “Everybody can take cheap shots and say I’m a horrible dad, and that I’m a Nazi, and all this other [bleep]. Give me all you got. Because you know what? I know inside what kind of a person I am. I know I’m an awesome dad. I’m devoted to my work. And I work hard to take care of my family.”
Still, James — a father of three — says he does regret stepping out on Bullock in such extreme ways. “I think people will probably think since I’m doing well now and since I’m happy that I don’t have any sorrow or regret for what I did, which couldn’t be further from the truth. There’ll never be a day that goes by for the rest of my life that I don’t regret it,” he said. “If I could go back and change the way I did things, and not hurt people, and not do things the way I did, of course I would do it that way.”
Jesse James recently closed his motorcycle shop West Coast Choppers and moved to Austin, Texas, where he is opening a new store, Austin Speed Shop. The venture will be charted in the new Discovery Channel series “Jesse James: Outlaw Garage,” which premieres tonight.
James appeared to have also moved on with his love life, getting engaged to tattoo artist Kat Von D. However, the pair split in October, Kat Von D taking to Twitter and referring to James as “my cheating ex.”
I guess I wasn’t aware that there are varying degrees of infidelity…James committed basic. What else is there? Serial I guess. But after you cheat once isn’t it just plain infidelity?
