Jesse James and his wife, Sandra Bullock, won’t be spending Christmas with Jesse’s 5 1/2-year-old daughter, Sunny. A judge ruled in favor of Sunny’s mother, adult film star Janine Lindemulder, during a hearing in an Orange County, Calif., court on Monday, December 7, Life & Style reports.
“Jesse sat quietly in court and let his lawyer to do the talking, while his ex represented herself,” a source reports. “She was told she could pick up Sunny at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and return her by 6 p.m. the next day, but her husband, Jeremy Aikman, a two-time felon, won’t be allowed to be there.”
Sandra, who was not in attendance at the hearing, has been helping raise Sunny since January, when Lindemulder was imprisoned for tax evasion. Since her release from prison, Lindemulder has been fighting for custody of Sunny and has faced accusations of being an unfit mother.
Although Lindemulder’s previous request for regular sleepovers was denied, an exception was made for the Christmas season. Jesse’s lawyer battled to have the special request thrown out since Lindemulder is doing Web-cam porn from her house, but the judge sided with the mother.
Jesse was reportedly visibly upset afterward and refused to comment as he left court. Lindemulder happily told Life & Style, “I’m so excited about Christmas. I can’t believe it. Thank God.”
