James’ goal is to relocate to Austin, Texas in order to move daughter Sunny, whom Bullock raised from a very young age, closer to the actress and son Louis Bardo.
During the hearing, James said that Sunny visited him in Arizona at Sierra Tucson rehab facility and said, “I talked to her [Janine] on the phone before I went to rehab in Arizona. I let her know that she [Sunny] would be staying with her stepmother in Texas.”
Emails that were sent to James’ sister from Lindemulder expressing concern over her daughters close relationship with Bullock were included as evidence in the trial. In one instance, she wrote, “All Sunny talks about is Sandy, Sandy! Wtf?!”
A source close to the situation also said of the newly divorced Bullock and James, “Jesse would not relocate his family without consulting with her.”
