Sandra Bullock may have filed divorce papers, but that hasn’t stopped Jesse James from purchasing a home near Sandra’s in Austin, Texas, In Touch reports. Though Jesse has owned a garage there “for years,” a source says, “Jesse is claiming that he needs to tend to that business now.”
In addition to his divorce, Jesse is currently battling for custody of his 6-year-old daughter Sunny with his ex-wife Janine Lindemulder. “His attorney has filed a declaration saying he’s moving to Austin with Sunny,” says a source close to Jesse. “He’s stating it like it’s a done deal.”
The source says that Jesse wants to move with Sunny, taking her away from her half-siblings and sending her to a new school, in order to win back Sandra. “He’s basically dangling Sunny like a carrot in front of Sandy, knowing she loves her and won’t be able to stay away,” the source says.
