Apologises to Sandra Bullock amid Affair Reports - Sandra Bullock's husband Jesse James has issued an apology amid reports he had an affair with a tattooed model. While the 40-year-old insisted 'the vast majority' of the allegations about him were untrue, he conceded he had 'poor judgement'.
James's apology comes four days after Bullock was reported to have left the couple's Southern Californian house. He said in a statement: 'There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me.
'It's because of my poor judgement that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way.
'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.'
With Bullock apparently in hiding, James was seen bringing his children to school today while still wearing his wedding ring. A source told People magazine Bullock left the family home on Monday.
Bullock pulled out of the British premiere of her new film The Blind Slide on Wednesday as In Touch magazine published an interview with James' alleged lover Michelle 'Bombshell' McGee.
The tattooed lady is even more heavily decorated with ink than James' porn star turned director ex-wife, Janine Lindermulder. She told the magazine that she called 40-year-old James her 'Vanilla Gorilla' and gave salacious details of their alleged 11 month affair.
In a gushing speech at the Oscars earlier this month, 45-year-old Miss Bullock thanked motorbike enthusiast James for his support. His eyes welled with tears as she spoke of her love for him.
Miss Bullock had been due to attend the first London screening of The Blind Side on Tuesday with her co-star, newcomer Quinton Aaron. But in a terse statement, Warner Brothers yesterday announced that the event and its accompanying parties were off because 'unforeseen circumstances' had arisen which meant Miss Bullock was 'no longer available to travel'.
The actress had a string of unsuccessful relationships before meeting James, a former bodyguard to heavy metal groups, when she took her young godson to the set of his now-axed TV show Monster Garage.
She became his third wife almost five years ago. Brunette Miss McGee claims she made email contact with James in April 2009 when she was looking for a modelling job with his company, West Coast Choppers. A week later, they met and had sex on his Los Angeles office couch 'two or three times'.
The model, who is in her 20s, said she thought his marriage was over when the fling started.
The magazine printed lewd texts from James to Miss McGee, in which he called her 'babe' and praised her 'beautiful eyes'.
In one, from as recently as Sunday, he wrote: 'Was just think'n' bout u this morning.'
She said: 'I'm a little more edgy than Sandra, obviously. I like motorcycles and I think we maybe had a lot more in common than she did with him. I think he was lonely.'
Miss McGee said she met and 'bonded with' James's five-year-old daughter Sunny, by his ex, Lindermulder. She claimed that the pair even watched Miss Bullock's appearance at the MTV Awards last May while in bed together. 'In my mind, the reason he wasn't there was because they were separated.'
Although they always met in secret at James's office, Miss McGee said she did not realise he was still married until they ran into mutual friends at a tattoo convention in Long Beach last June. 'It was awkward, he knew he was caught.'
It is not clear if or when Miss Bullock was told of her husband's alleged cheating.
But at the SAG Awards in January, she said: 'To my husband Jesse, who works so hard all day.
'And you get dressed up in monkey suits and you sit at tables with people you don't know and I leave you there and then you come back with, like, Morgan Freeman's email.
'I don't know how you do it. I love you so much and you're really hot and I want you so much.'
At the Golden Globes, she said: 'To my husband - there's no surprise that my work got better when I met you, so thank you.'
And finally, at the Oscars, she thanked her late mother Helga for sending her James. A spokesman for the actress refused to discuss the magazine allegations yesterday. Jesse James was unavailable for comment.
