Sandra Bullock & Jesse James’ divorce was finalized last week

Shock of shocks, Sandra Bullock and Jesse James managed to finalize their divorce totally undercover. According to TMZ’s sources, all the documents were signed last week and everything was filed, blah blah. So the divorce is final now. That seems really fast, doesn’t it? I guess I’m used to California or New York divorces, which can take anywhere from six months to forever. But Jesse and Sandra did it the Texas Way – no guns necessary. Although I’m sure Sandra was considering it.

TMZ has learned Sandra Bullock’s divorce from Jesse James is now a done deal.

Sources tell TMZ both Sandra and Jesse signed the final documents last week. Sealed documents have been filed with the clerk’s office in Travis County, Texas — sources tell us they are the papers making the divorce final.

Sandra filed for divorce back on April 23, saying the marriage “has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”

And sources say the divorce clears the way for Sandra to complete a single parent adoption.

[From TMZ]

Oh, the adoption could be another reason why everything moved so fast. Because what has it been? The neo-Nazi bimbo eruption was early March. And Sandra told People Magazine that she filed for divorce around that time too. So not even four months to finalize that bad boy. Jesse probably didn’t contest anything because of the adoption, and because Sandra asked him to sit down and shut up.

Now, even though their divorce is final, that isn’t stopping Jesse from buying a place down in Austin, very close to Sandra’s house. Does it mean that they’re getting back together? I don’t know. I’ve said it before, I want Sandra to move on from Jesse in a spectacular fashion, but I think she still has a lot of love for the moron.

    There goes all the rumors about working it out, or maybe not.

  2. denise says:


    I’m pretty sure these two are going to build an underground tunnel leading into each other’s home.

  3. Lola says:

    He is a jerk – yes but I’m still really sad about this. I know that this is the right thing for Sandra to do but I wish it wasn’t so. Growing up in Orange County he was kind of ‘hometown boy done good’ but that is so over now. Best of luck to Sandra and her son. She deserves it.

  4. lucy2 says:

    I think in Texas, if neither party objects, it’s a 60 day wait. So much for all the “sources” saying she’d put it on hold, huh?
    She might still have some love for him, but that doesn’t mean she’d be willing to get back together.

  5. Embee says:

    I bet Sandy isn’t considering reconciliation. She is dealing with a sociopath and treading gently–she knows that the more she instigates him the bigger mess she’ll have on her hands. That doesn’t mean she wants him back. More likely, her behavior is ensuring she gets what she most wants: Louis.

  6. bellaluna says:

    Man, I wish I could have gone the Texas route! But it likely wouldn’t have mattered, since my (now) ex refused to sign the papers until 3 YEARS LATER! ARGH! Sorry, sorry…been up since 3 and just now got coffee.

    Anywhoodle, I love the (occasional) moron I’m married to now, too; but I doubt I could over-look that biblical-sized transgression-indiscretion. Then again, we haven’t had to go through anything like that, so I don’t have a right to speak to what SB should do.

  7. jen says:

    If there is reconcilliation possible I’m figuring this was “close this chapter of the book” sort of mental milestone and she’ll let him try to be the man she thought she was married to.

  8. Whatever says:

    So much for the stories that said she put the divorce on hold. Idiot tab reporters. Good job, Sandra, that’s how you deal with a cheating man.

  9. benny says:

    I can’t see her taking him back. Even if she forgives the cheating, I think the Nazi white racist stuff would be too much for her to put aside, especially with her raising Louis.

  10. Lilias says:

    I’m glad she dumped her cheating husband. Women don’t need to have more examples of women forgiving this type of behavior and acting like it’s not a big deal. It is a big deal. Cheating should not be treated as a normal part of marriage.

    EDIT: I would like to respectfully request that I be taken off this undesirables list of people who are constantly moderated. I have not attacked anyone or said anything particularly inflammatory. I’m not sure why I’ve suddenly become moderated unless everyone is moderated now on this site, in which case, I apologize and I’ll just be on my way.

  11. Kim says:

    National Enquirer wrong again they just claimed she called off the divorce

  12. Raven says:

    I love it. The tabloids have been wrong about every aspect of her situation. She knows how to get things done and keep a lid on the situation. i have so much respect for her. She is a fantastic role model for his kids and her own child.

  13. Iggles says:

    And sources say the divorce clears the way for Sandra to complete a single parent adoption.

    I was thinking, “good for Sandy!” until I read that part.

    I doubt that they’re done. She didn’t move on — she just wanted the adoption to be finalized..

  14. Morgs says:

    Denise I’m with you on the underground tunnel thing. These two might be “done” on paper….

  15. Tia C says:

    Good for her. Good riddance to bad rubbish, as the old saying goes. Moving on.

  16. lucy2 says:

    Iggles, I get what you’re saying, but all this time not a single “source” has been right about what she’s doing. They said she was quitting acting, putting the divorce on hold, adopting a 2nd child, etc – yet none of these sources knew about the adoption or the personal life stuff, so I wouldn’t give them any credit.

  17. Ann says:

    Well when one party wants out and there’s real good support for that, good for them. Mine was 3 months from The day my ass ex said he wasn’t happy any more. GO SANDRA!

  18. Beth says:

    It’s funny how the tabs have been so wrong about everything concerning Sandra. Everything from the adoption, leaving movies, getting back together with Jesse. If they had reconciled they would have stopped the divorce. I don’t think the adoption is relevant concerning the divorce. They had custody of Louis before the scandal so I doubt he could be taken away from Sandra.

  19. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    So much for all the people who said she never intended to get a divorce and that everything was just a cover so they could reunite.

    Thank God, she has some intelligence not to take the crep back.

  20. OC lady says:

    Thank GOD! I’m so glad to hear she dumped him. I’m glad she finally saw the light.

    But, it does concern me that he would move SO close to her. It seems like he is stalking her? He may think that he will run into her and then exert some sort of influence into getting her back. That REALLY creeps me out b/c I had an ex do that to me. I had to move again to get rid of him. It’s frightening to “accidently” run into someone over and over. UGH, it still gives me the total creeps.

    I hope Sandy doesn’t give in or moves somewhere else. I hope she gets a restraining order if need be. James sounds like a control-freak creep who misses his victim.

  21. Feebee says:

    Or maybe they’re divorced but there’s no reason not to be civil (though she does have a reason not to be civil) and if he wants to move and isn’t stalking her, it’s apparently a free country. So I hope he’s not stalking her because he has the freedom to until he harms her. I don’t know what made me go there.

  22. nolanative says:

    Well, good for SB, if this tidbit is actually real. I’m glad to see that she has true confidants surrounding her. As many have noted all the tab reports about reconciliations and holds have been uhmm, wrong thus far so anything pertaining to SB, I won’t believe until she states it or official docs surface.

  23. Evie says:

    I don’t think Sandra was totally blind to who Jesse really was.

  24. TeeTee says:

    took no time at all..

    if she does go back to him, she’ll have to sneak cause the public would eat her alive..BUT the media seems to love her, so they may keep it secret if it happens.

    She can do waaaay better than old Jesse.

  25. new at this says:

    I’m happy for her.I’m sure it was a painful decision but now she can put it behind her and hopefully move forward with her son.

  26. elaine says:

    @ Embee -

    Is he a sociopath? I haven’t been following this for a few months (no internet access since March), and have not heard that before.

  27. Jeri says:

    Love doesn’t die because you know it can’t work BUT if you have self respect & do not want to be treated like Sh-t that can get you through.

    Being in the same town makes her access to his kids easier.

  28. snowball says:

    He has a couple of reasons to be in Austin legitimately; he’s got businesses there and Sandra has said she will let him be a part of Louis’ life. Unfortunately, he’s essentially leaving behind day-to-day contact with little Sunny and his other two children, not to mention his businesses where he was, even if they were sort of sinking a bit.

    I don’t doubt for a second that he’s got ulterior motives towards Sandra, whether he even knows it or not. He really thinks he can win her back. I don’t doubt that the douche does love her despite everything he’s done to her, there’s part of Sandra that probably remembers how much she loved him, even if she doesn’t actively love him. You don’t just forget it.

    But she’s not dumb enough to get back together with him. She didn’t divorce him just to finalize any adoption immediately. When were the tabs EVER right about her in this whole mess?

  29. Sumodo1 says:

    The tabs were wrong and slow, making things up, and stirring the pot–much MORE THAN GETTING IT RIGHT.

    Hail Radaronline! They are the go to site, and of course, Celebitchy for snark.

  30. Liana says:

    my (now) ex refused to sign the papers until 3 YEARS LATER! ARGH!

    My friend just went through that too. Jerk refused to sign the papers, meanwhile, he was living with another woman. He was just waiting for the youngest kid to hit 18 so he wouldn’t have to pay child support. Backlashed on him – he got a judge at the end who figured out his rather transparent game and nailed him for retroactive child support. All the money he paid retroactively went for the kids’ college.

    I’m constantly being moderated, too. And I’m almost never rude! I think there are “keywords” that get a post moderated. At least there are on some other blogs.

  31. ctkat says:

    I think they will have a Bruce/Demi, or maybe a Pam Anderson/Tommy Lee type of divorce, since there are two children involved that they both want to parent and to which only one has legal rights to (confusing sentence, sorry!).

    What I mean is, Sandra probably wants to continue to have an active role in Sunny’s life, and Jesse probably wants to have an active role in Louis’ life. Sandra has no right to Sunny and Jesse has no right to Louis, so in order to keep the relationships with the children, they need to keep their relationship really, really friendly and open.

    I don’t think she will take him back into a marriage, or a romantic partnership. I do think, however, that they will continue to be a “family”, at least as far as the kids are concerned. (I include his two older kids in this, though they have a mom with shared custody- Sandra probably wants access to them as well.)

  32. Schanuzers!!! says:

    I am glad at least this hurdle is over for her. She’s sure been through it in the past 4 months. I’m sure she is still somewhat in shock and raw over his behavior. Who knows what will happen but I think she’s a very smart woman, and she loves her son. He doesn’t need to go through all of this with her again in 2 years or 3…or however long it takes this man to “fall off the goodboy wagon”.

  33. Cirque28 says:

    Well, she probably didn’t instantly fall out of love with him, but that seems pretty normal to me.

  34. Kitty2000 says:

    It legally takes two years of separation before you can get a divorce in NZ. Funny story actually, I got my friend to serve my ex the papers but she forgot to file them, so I was wandering around thinking I was a free woman and months later she admitted to me that she still had the papers and I was still legally married. Crap! Anyway, a quick and grovelly visit to the courts sorted it all out.

  35. Maritza says:

    I’m sure that her job and baby keep her pretty busy, enough not to even think about Jesse. She is over him and his infidelities, he will now become some other woman’s problem for sure.

  36. Crash2GO2 says:

    It would be sheer suicide to take this moron back and she knows it. No matter how much she loved the man she THOUGHT he was, he isn’t. I’m glad she can see that.

    My heart has broken for her again and again simply over the fact that she has to lose Sunny. And she has. She will no longer be a part of that little girl’s life in any way like she was.

    Sue me, but my heart breaks over losing little girls.

  37. Congratulations to Sandra Bullock – you have made America very proud of you today!

  38. Sincerity says:

    Congratulations to Sandra Bullock and kudos to the State of Texas! She handled her business like a “real professional” and kept the public media at bay as much as possible. Where there’s a will, there’s a way and Sandra Bullock is definitely “a class act”. I wish her and her son, Louis, much happiness and success in the years to come.

  39. Missfit says:

    She truly looked happy with him and as if she really loved him (going by the pics). He looks kinda off and lost, as if he didn’t feel the same, like he was just there. Probably always thinking about those hookers, even then. I’m happy for her, good for her, she obviously can do better and he never deserved her, she was too good for him anyway.

  40. Cletus says:

    Dude, it took my ex and me THREE YEARS to get divorced, and collectively we owned neither a pot to piss in nor a window to throw it out of. THere was no property to argue over. It wasn’t like “you get the summer house so I get the penthouse”. It was like, “did you want half of this giant package of toilet paper I got from Sam’s”.

    Anyways, YAY, DIVORCE! Divorce RULZ.

  41. Camille says:

    Ack! I know this isn’t relevant to this topic, but while Celebitchy and co were sleeping, you missed the news that Megan Fox and BAG got married- apparently. Hilarious.
    So much for the ‘we’re going to have a long engagement and I’ll be 44 when we get married’ lol.
    Wonder how long it will last for and I wonder if he loves her new face(s)?

  42. Shay says:

    Who says money doesn’t bring happiness?
    Where I live, it takes ordinary people two years to divorce. Money obviously hastens celebrity divorces.

  43. Sandra really could teach a class on how to keep your life private. Good for her and her child.

  44. Kittypants says:

    I can’t imagine how painful this experience must have been for her, and still very much is I would guess. Not that it’s easy for anyone who has to go through this kind of thing of course, but to have to go through it so publicly must be horrendous. I truly wish her every happiness in the future.

    Fastest Hwood divorce ever because it was done in Texas.
