Jesse James’ fourth wife gushes about him: ‘I wanted to marry him the first day’

Jesse James has almost been married six months this time, are you surprised? James married his fourth wife, drag racer Alexis DeJoria, in a ceremony in Malibu in March. DeJoria is the daughter of billionaire Paul Mitchell haircare founder, John Paul DeJoria. Many people questioned whether James would be tying the knot again if his wife wasn’t so loaded and well connected. Whatever is going on, DeJoria is sold. She gushed about James to US Weekly, claiming they just “click” and adding that she “wanted to marry him the first day” they met. Did her friends not advise her against this?

“We actually met at the races out in Dallas. I was racing at the time, and [Jesse] had been friends with my dad [Paul Mitchell billionaire John Paul DeJoria] for a while,” she explains to Us of how her relationship with the motorcycle customizer began. “So he came up to see my dad and the guys that I race with, and that was it. It was the first time we met, and we just hit it off. He has never missed a race since.”

“I can’t even tell you — we have so much in common,” she continues. “We just click. I’ve never had that in a man before. I’ve never experienced that with anyone before him, so I knew it right away. He was definitely the one. It has been amazing.”

“I think I wanted to marry him the first day,” she says, laughing. “It’s just like marrying your best friend. It’s perfect.” (As Us Weekly previously reported, the couple tied the knot in Malibu on March 24.)

DeJoria — who has a 10-year-old daughter, Bella, from a former relationship — says their kids feel the same way. (James has three children from previous marriages: daughter Chandler and son Jesse Jr. with first wife Karla James, and daughter Sunny with second wife Janine Lindemulder. He was also married to actress Sandra Bullock.)

“Our daughters [Bella and Sunny] are the same age, and they just click. They are like two peas in a pod. It’s the cutest thing ever,” DeJoria tells Us of her new blended family. “[Bella] has always wanted a sister…so it just worked out perfectly.”

The NHRA standout also notes that her new husband is super supportive of her racing career. “He really understands it,” she says, noting that the former Monster Garage star can “hold his own” with her crew. “He wants to get in there and get his hands dirty and work…He’s in there cleaning parts, welding on the car…He’s very, very active in my profession, and it’s awesome.”

[From US Weekly]

James has a long and storied history of failed relationships, serial cheating, and playing the victim. It’s all easily Googled, to the point where you would assume any woman would run a quick background check and stay far away. Maybe DeJoria did all that, and maybe she thinks she’s the exception and that he’ll be faithful to her. Or maybe she just doesn’t care. I don’t get it. James didn’t just cheat on Sandra Bullock, he cheated on his next girlfriend, Kat Von D, the woman he told the press was “the one” whom he loved “beyond description.” Maybe he’s changed now that he has a wife who shares more of his interests. She certainly seems to think he has. Love can make a person very blind.

Oh and James has a new business in Austin, Texas. It’s called Fancy Hookers Towing and this is their logo. It’s not a joke.

    Aww, these happy lovers, it will last forever. Yep. Forever.

  2. Eleonor says:

    Does he want to challenge Dame Elizabeth Taylor weddings?

  3. Elisabeth says:

    his body language is really weird in these pics. She looks like some groupie fan who got to meet him at last. he looks completely disinterested

  4. Maddie says:

    I hope she gets tested every 6 months. He is such a nasty piece of work with no redeeming anything, just nasty.

    There is something off in him, like he’s missing something that most humans have and when talks you feel it, rather creepy too.

    I give this marriage 9 more months until she catches him with some scummy bucket hooker.

  5. The Wizz says:

    She looks much more his type than Sandra did.

  6. Ej says:

    Notice that he’s only smiling in the pic w her Dad… I guess this guy thinks he’s going to get a payday out of this chick, because he’s certainly not happy / smiling in any of the pictures with her…

    He’s a sociopath, cares nothing but about his own interests, that’s why he cheats and will cheat again.

    Once a cheater, always a cheater.

  7. siobhan says:

    Huge step down from the gorgeous Sandra Bullock.

    • Dannielle says:

      Yet *finally* in his league. Except for the money.

      My first thought seeing her picture was that at least he didn’t get a babe this time. And of course that’s a superficial thought. But he doesn’t deserve someone awesome and refined like Sandy.

      • G says:

        I love Sandra Bullock, but she had no problem going after him while he was married to that porn star when they first started cheating together. Let’s not bad-mouth this new woman just because she has tattoos, ok?

      • Kcaia says:

        I’m with G. Its icy cold and bitter in here over a woman we really know very little about.

      • Ok says:

        G and kcaia — good point. I don’t think she is horrible looking. At least she is taking daddy’s tons of cash and doing something she loves to do.

        And they do have a lot in common.

        I just can’t believe she would have picked him.

        Maybe it is like… do I put this? Kat Von D said when their relationship ended that she was so very determined to prove everyone wrong. Everyone was so very wrong about him and he was such an awesome guy.

        I think she may be jumping in and championing someone that might turn out to disappoint her greatly. It would be nice if that did not happen to her because that is something very painful

      • bluhare says:

        Sandra Bullock’s image is battened down so tight it’s got no leaks. I don’t buy her goody two shoes image for a minute. She did go after Jesse James and was married to him for five years. She was also able to keep Louis’ adoption secret in the most public scenario she’s ever been involved in, which I have to admit was brilliant. And she only divorced him when the publicity got too bad. Then never followed through with the child she was supposed to adore.

        All that being said, what the hell is that green dress she’s wearing?

      • siobhan says:

        I don’t think she is a step down because she has tattoos I think she is a step down because she is no where near as attractive. She also seems to be delusional. I haven’t heard Sandra went after Jesse while he was still married and haven’t been able to find any stories that support this claim. Was that a rumor or did someone involved make a statement about it?

      • Violet says:

        Unlike “awesome and refined” Sandra Bullock who first hooked up with Jesse when he was expecting a child with his previous wife, DeJoria didn’t get involved with him while he was still committed to someone else. That fact alone puts her miles above Sandra in my book.

        I’m sure Jesse will wind up cheating on his latest wife, too — he probably already has, considering they’ve been married for months at this point — but any idiot who gets involved with him doesn’t deserve sympathy, IMO.

        That said, I hope that DeJoria has an ironclad prenup in place and insists on condoms, but somehow I doubt it.

      • lisa says:

        @bluhare – ita – the real story isnt how long it will take him to cheat on shampoo heiress but how sandra keeps that squeaky clean image. i cant imagine anyone with him isnt a little hinky. she even managed to get an oscar for a movie that was really just some lifetime channel production. she’s cagey.

      • Dannielle says:

        Again, Siobhan is on the money here. Never once did I say I thought she was homely because of tattoos–it’s best for people to not jump to conclusions when they read a comment; I have FIVE tattoos, myself. I said she was homely because she’s homely IMO, period. And I did not know about Sandra cheating with him–that certainly is a fly in the ointment.

  8. pao la says:

    And divorced the next one. Geesh.

  9. bowers says:

    He always looks spaced out. I don’t want to slam women, but why why why why?

  10. Frida_K says:

    1. He looks just like her daddy so my vote is: it’s a case of DADDY ISSUES.

    2. He used to work out at my old gym and I almost literally bumped into him once (walked around a display and we almost collided). I used to see him fairly regularly. My reaction: ugh. He acted furtive, like he was convinced that people were staring at him, to the extent that in the end he actually drew attention because he came off like a creeper. He’s just nasty on so many levels.

    If I were Sandra Bullock, I would be writhing inside with embarrassment for having been with this character. Writhing.

  11. teehee says:

    He’s smiling around the dad only because he’s bigger and mroe important then him (than Jesse). When he’s just with her, he tries to look cool, important and macho– he’s still an insecure little boy inside.

    but on a positive note- she;’s very well manicured. Or at least lots of makeup?

  12. Marrissa says:

    God this man is disgusting. *Pukes*

  13. lisa says:

    what do women see in him?

    my guess – he will get caught cheating on her as soon as she gets some gigantic tattoo of his face, the universe just seems to work like that

  14. DeltaJuliet says:

    He’s disgusting and whenever I see a picture of her I think it’s Amy Fischer.

  15. Leslee says:

    Why would women want to be with someone that has a disgusting track record with women such as himself? Some people are so damn clueless.

  16. Dannielle says:

    What a classy, classy service name/logo that is! I’ll be sure if I’m in the area and my car breaks down to loudly announce, “I need someone to call a Fancy Hooker!”

    Heh, imagine how much fun 411′ing THAT number is.

  17. Sarah says:

    6 months until she’s filing for divorce. I’m sure she thinks she’s the one who can tame him because they clicked the first day, lol. He clicks with all the pale, brunette tattooed women he meets.

  18. pnichols says:

    hey if they’re happy, let them be. personally I don’t get it, but it’s not for me to get.

  19. Bex says:

    I would love to say that if he’s married it keeps him off the market and the rest of us women are safe. Then I realized being married has never stopped him from picking up some strange. Lol.

  20. mommak918 says:

    Ooooo, I wish he wasn’t in Austin. We don’t want him here.
    I have seen him a handful of times on Manchaca and S. Lamar riding his bike.

    I actually wonder who likes this man and gives him business?

    I ask this, but my own mechanic husband likes him. But I tell him of all the bad he does…so he usually stops talking about him.

    Ps, my husband works/worked on all of Sandra Bullock’s Range Rovers….and said she was by far the kindest woman. So when I mentioned how Jesse was so awful about her post cheating…he seemed to understand my detest for him. (Men just don’t care about the celeb gossip like us gals!)

  21. Anki says:

    She’s probably just laying the ground for a pregnancy announcement.

    • Dutch says:

      I doubt that. Believe it or not, she’s pretty serious about her racing career and with the noxious exhaust her style of car produces, the G-forces the car pulls and general common sense safety reasons, there’s no way she could race while pregnant. Having a baby would eliminate two years of her career and I can’t see her giving that up.

  22. lucy2 says:

    Aw, poor little delusional moron.

    I will have no sympathy for her when things implode. Don’t put your hand in a flame and then complain you got burned.

  23. Talie says:

    God, it feels like a century ago that he was with Sandra.

  24. Ag says:

    I hope the CDC is on top of this.

  25. Ann says:

    He’s not young enough and pretty enough to be a gold digger.

  26. Potato_Chip says:

    Second paragraph of her dribble: replace ‘click’ with ‘dick’ and voilá, there you have it. And she is a first-class clinger. Wait, change that to Klingon.

  27. Inky says:

    He must make every woman he meets feel that way, like they just ‘click’, otherwise you would see through him a mile away.

    It is a mistake a lot of people make though, I know I have done it myself in the past and been severely burned.

    Still, poor woman, she must be aware of what she has let herself in for to some extent?

  28. Cheryl says:

    Should Miley get in touch? She might be a good spokesperson for the towing company? Or a competing towing company? There seems to be grounds here for some creative marketing…

  29. K-MAC says:

    He is more connected to her dad. Look at his smile, his hand on his shoulder. Yeah, total meal ticket. This marriage will be over in a few years (when he can get a nice chunk of change).

    Any women who marries him after everything that he has done has some serious problems.

  30. KeepinWeird says:


    Obviously they are perfect for each other.

  31. Zorbitor says:

    He must be great in the sack😃

  32. Sunlily says:

    *kanye shrugs*
    Her friends aint shit. >:(

  33. Nerd Alert says:

    Real question: Why doesn’t her dad fix her nasty, stringy hair?

  34. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    She must be a f*cking idiot–that’s the only way she’s saying all of this.

    And there are kids involved too–she’s got one, he’s got three.

    That’ll end well.

  35. TherapyCranes says:

    I don’t know why people are bad mouthing this woman. They know nothing about her and she looks sweet in the pic with her dad.

    I don’t know what it is with this douche. Why do rich well off women fall for him? I don’t get it. He must be amazing in bed or something but even then why marry it? Uggh.

  36. A~ says:

    I had a boyfriend like this. He could make any woman make her feel like she had met her soul mate. God, it was incredible. Until he got bored with the role and cheated so he could be someone else’s God. He was incredibly gifted at it. And he did it again and again. I learned my lesson. When it seems like you’re living in some higher plane of love that only happens in the movies, beware. It really does only happen in the movies. Real love takes time and energy, and my husband of sixteen years is so worth it.

  37. KellyInSeattle says:

    Do they have a college where you learn drag racing? Just kidding…she looks so clingy, though!

  38. Evie Rose says:

    He really needs someone who’s comfortable with an open marriage or relationship because he will forever be a cheater. It has nothing to do with the women he dates, it’s just a character flaw and serious self worth issues.

  39. Holden says:

    Maybe it works out, but his history suggests that one woman will never be enough for his ego, and he’s been with some pretty great girls.

  40. LilyT says:

    Ugh. I think the reason he looks so happy with dad and so vacant and “dead eyed” with her is he is a total mysogynist. He has zero respect for women and views all women as “playthings” or a means to an end. He’s revolting and I feel sorry for her and her obvious naïveté or denial.

  41. Ok says:

    Wow — nothing says to me “we’re really wealthy” like that first photo. Actually all the photos make me think of a well-to-do-refined couple.


    Jesus, could they look greasier if they tried.

    And, if you were young and had tons of money and could pick any man you wanted, would you pick him??

  42. nicegirl says:

    Oh, I feel so sorry for this woman. I wish she had not professed her love for all to hear, how heartbreaking for her, should his past behavior come to predict future behaviors . . .

  43. Annie says:

    The poor dear looks just like her father.

  44. Mirna says:

    How do you have so much money (like this woman) and still exude “trash”?

  45. Steph says:

    I’m amazed this has lasted six months. Black widow spiders have longer honeymoons than this douche.

  46. LilyT says:

    I think it’s called “Eu de white trash”… All the rage

  47. skuddles says:

    Man, she sure looks “rode hard, put away wet”. And, as usual, he looks like a greasy loser.

  48. Cirque28 says:

    If JJ hadn’t whined and played the martyr when he was caught cheating on Sandra Bullock, if he hadn’t ‘written’ an entire book blaming everybody else for everything unfair in his life (a life which appears quite charmed and lucky to most of us), if even his freaking Twitter name didn’t reference his victimhood (FreeJesseJames), then I’d believe these 2 have a chance. Because people can change in huge ways.

    However. You can’t expect an iota of change from someone who has made it perfectly clear that he doesn’t think he did anything wrong. Heck, he doesn’t even bother to pretend to be remorseful. On some level, he must be laughing about how easily conned people are.

  49. KeepinWeird says:

    Ok. Her daddy’s a billionaire, she has kids and tattoos and is apparently very gullible. Sociopath Jesse is with her for the money, built in mom/caregiver for his kids. He is a user and always will be.

  50. ZAK says:

    This woman must have low self-esteem. James is a disgusting creep.

  51. Amanda Huggenkiss says:

    Oxytocin is their current elixir mixed with ink, adrenaline, and sociopathic risk.

  52. Cirque28 says:

    Alexis probably gushes because she’s trying to convince herself, “There’s no reason this one was sitting on the clearance rack. No reason at all. I got my hands on a genuine Gordon Gartrell shirt, people, cause I’m LUCKY.”

  53. Jennifer12 says:

    Really, what else was either of them going to do? She’s not a classic beauty, and looks like an aging biker chick, but she’s rich. He’s not overly attractive and has a horrible reputation. It’s crotch rot love.

    • Cirque28 says:

      Yep. Who was she going to marry? Not a doctor or lawyer. But the guys she’s attracted to are usually broke. So Jesse plants himself in her path (like that wasn’t on purpose) and he’s successful but w/ that dirty vibe. He’s charming, attentive, a big guy who makes her feel feminine & safe, deeply admires her passion for racing (how flattering). Of course he quickly insinuates himself with her children. Pretty soon she’s wondering how she found the 1 good family man/famous bad boy biker who adores her like no one ever has…

  54. homegrrl says:

    I dunno. she may be a good match for a sociopath. like she regularly puts him through the rigors of archaic mental patient restraints, chains, shock therapy, isolation, leeching, whatever

    and their friends think it’s cool and edgy Prolly a match made in freak show heaven
