Us Weekly: Jesse James has even more Nazi-related photos


Less than a year ago, as Jesse James became America’s number one enemy after screwing around on America’s Sweetheart with Bombshell McGee, Us Weekly ran an expose of Jesse’s Nazi-porn stash. They released the photo, above, of Jesse giving the salute like a dumbass, and then they had a million follow-ups, including Jesse’s denial that he was or is a neo-Nazi, or that he finds anything funny or sexy or good in Nazi fetishism. Well, the dumbass never learns. Us Weekly has even more photos here – one is of Jesse smiling as a friend makes the “siel heil” salute. Another is of a cartoon character dressed as Adolf Hitler, although for that one, it’s unclear if Jesse was the one to dress up the doll.

After Us Weekly uncovered a 2004 snapshot of Jesse James dressed in a German Nazi hat giving a “Heil, Hitler” salute last spring, the motorcycle mogul, 41, denied claims of anti-Semitism.

But now Us has discovered new, similarly disturbing images involving James, posted on Facebook by ex-employees of his company, West Coast Choppers. In one pic, James grins and sits in a convertible alongside a pal who gives the infamous “sieg heil” salute; another image features a children’s book character, Flat Stanley, dressed as Adolf Hitler.

The chilling photos are featured in the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now).
“He’s into history,” an insider explains of the undated pics, which were posted in October.

Adds the source, who insists James isn’t a skinhead, “The swastika deal is to scare people. It’s part of biker culture.”

For more on James, including how ex-wife Sandra Bullock found out he was engaged to new gal pal Kat Von D, pick up the new issue of Us Weekly — on stands now.

[From Us Weekly]

I think it’s pretty likely that Us Weekly had these photos for a little while and that they just sat on them, waiting for a good time to release them. The pics aren’t as provocative as the first ones, with Jesse making the salute himself. That being said, it’s been clear for a while that the whole “Jesse is a history buff” defense is full of crap. I am a history buff – I love World War II books and documentaries and memorabilia. And somehow I’ve managed to go through my life without ever rubbing a swastika on my tits, or making the “sieg hiel” salute for laughs or for erotica. Maybe Jesse doesn’t shave his head and call himself a neo-Nazi, but that’s probably because he’s dumb as a box of hair. This bitch is all about the Aryan race, all about Nazi fetishism, and all about the white-power biker culture. It’s disgusting.

    He and Mel will get along great!What a dick!

  2. renee says:

    Okay. So if Jesse’s employees all knew about his hard-on for Nazi memorabilia and culture how is it that we keep on buying that poor old Sandra B knew nothing about it??? Give me a break. She must have known and chose to look the other way. And now she has adopted a black child! And she would have brought the kid up in that environment had the lid not blown off of the news of his sundry extra-marital affairs. Sheesh. I don’t understand why she keeps on getting a free pass on this one.

  3. Celia says:

    I can’t imagine being with a guy like that! How could Sandra B. live with him? Is she also a supporter of this crappy ideology?

  4. candy says:

    I hope Sandra is getting counseling for this head trip. She needs to understand why she got involved with this dangerous loser to begin with.

  5. Happymom says:

    Candy-exactly. It’s not as though she was some naive 19 year old. How could she not have seen, on so many levels, what a total jackass this guy is?

  6. DD says:

    I say who cares what he does now. He’s already proven himself to be a D-List douche bag. Nothing he does is shocking anymore.

  7. Rita says:

    I’m glad these people take such pictures and make them public. The last thing I want is for this arse to be hiding in some closet.

  8. brin says:

    He’s disgusting, at least he’s out of Sandra’s life.

  9. Rita says:


    Interesting observation, especially when considering the race of her adopted child. I agree that Sandra has a screw loose somewhere to have been married to this guy.

  10. Maud says:

    I have also started wondering how Sandra B. could not have know about this stuff. Married people are in each other’s business all day long. Although, my mom used to say that it can be difficult to see in others what we don’t possess within ourselves.

  11. mln76 says:

    Yeah I think Sandy was in denial for a long, long time about Jesse.

  12. Shay says:

    Seriously, there has to be something wrong with Sandra Bullock, that is hidden by her PR team, for her to have ever been with this dickhead of a man.
    You don’t stay with someone in a relationship for that long unless you share some mutual interests. Sorry, but I don’t believe the hype about her being ever so nice. She puts it on all the time.

  13. MSat says:

    What the hell is Kat Von D thinking??? She has the worst taste in men of all time.

  14. k says:

    Not to defend the guy, who is obviously a d—, but I can’t tell what kind of hat his friend is wearing in that photo, and it looks more like he is draping his arm over the convertible window top rather than saluting.

  15. Quest says:


  16. flourpot says:

    I think Sandy just saw Jesse and said – yeah, I wanna tap that. And she did and he pulled out some fine, sexy, carebear, badboy acting skills and she fell for it while she fell in love. Or, more likely, lust.

    Race obviously isn’t an issue to her, she adopted a needy child from a poor part of the US. As for Jesse, he wasn’t going to care who or what she wanted to do or adopt as long as he still had access to her money and her tits. So glad he liked sleezy women who had to brag because she deserves so much better.

    Disclaimer: ew. he’s so not sexy. but each to their own.

  17. someone says:

    I don’t think Sandra knew, because when she found out about everything, she walked away and stayed away..I say good for her, even if she had a suspicion about it, she loved him and gave him the benefit of the doubt…

  18. malachais says:

    I hate that tabloid cover. If Jesse is a douche, that has absolutely nothing to do with Sandra. “Stabbed in the heart?” – idiots.

    @Shay, agreed.

  19. Tiffany says:

    @someone. I agree with you. Once this was discovered, she walked away. I think the affairs with all these ayran mistresses started because the adoption was going to happen. There was nothing to stop Louis from coming home. That is when he started getting sloppy and did not care. That is just my theory.

  20. Bubbling says:

    @ Renee Thank you ever so much! Will people keep on believing she didn’t notice?! Puhleese! I bet he has at least 5 swastikas hidden on his body, like a koi fish caught on swastika, or a pin up girl with swastika tattoo, I don’t know…Major douche. But here are my thoughts on Sandra A)incredibly stupid (which I doubt) B)turned the blind eye C)was down with it all

  21. 6 says:

    Oh come on, Sandra could have not known. It is possible. Look at the creepy BTK killer amongst other creepy weird people, did his wife know? Some people are really good at f___ing with people. Then you start to look back and realize what an idiot you were that you didn’t pick up on it. It happens to everyone, major and minor.

  22. Brittany says:

    If Sandra didn’t know about his affairs, why would she know about his Nazi crap? I doubt he kept the stuff on display at home. He’s already proven to be a pretty effective liar, if only for a few years at the most.
    Do we ever REALLY know someone?

  23. REALIST says:

    Sandra-not stabbed in the heart-happy as hell to get out of the house with the shaky foundation before it collapsed on top of her.
    Jesse-due for some bad, bad karma…

  24. Karen says:

    @.11 – “…Although, my mom used to say that it can be difficult to see in others what we don’t possess within ourselves”.

    Maud: Your mother is a wise woman. I don’t think Sandy knew. A woman who knowingly loves a neo-Nazi or whatever the hell Vanilla Gorilla calls himsef is not a woman who would knowingly adopt a child from anything other than the Aryan race. Ugh…I get the shudders even writing the word “aryan”.

  25. AngelMay says:

    I don’t think Sandra is a racist, but she had to know about his gross weirdness and was probably into it. Call me cynical but it was a little too perfect when she turned up with an African American baby right after the scandal.

  26. Bodhi says:

    OK WHOA, lets back the truck up a bit here. Not all bikers are neo-Nazis & equating them as such is complete & total BS. Yes, some biker GANGS are affiliated with neo-Nazi organizations, but the bikers I know (and I know a LOT of bikers) would be horrified to be lumped in with those assholes. God knows my Jewish biker buddies would be super pissed to find themselves called neo-Nazis.

    There are many MANY biker clubs around the country & by & large they are dudes & their wives who like to ride motorcycles together, nothing more, nothing less. Although a lot of them are very involved in charity organizations like Toys for Tots, which a great Christmas charity that is affiliated with the US Marine Corp.

    So please please tread carefully when associating neo-Nazis with bikers.

  27. itiswhatitis says:


    I agree with you wholeheartedly. You vocalized my very thoughts when I read this article. It seems as though we are giving Sandra the benefit of the doubt when we shouldn’t be. I want to highlight that I have nothing against Sandra, I enjoy her as an actress.

    Can you honestly tell me that this man is so skilled that he was able to hide his true nature for the length of their courtship and marriage?

    Many many people believe that Ruth Madoff had knowledge of her husband’s criminal activities even though she was not involved in his business dealings (merely using them as an example, not expressing my opinion either way). So why is it so easy for us to believe Ruth had knowledge but that Sandra didn’t?

    Did Sandra ever issue a statement addressing her surprise and dismay over Jessie’s behavior in the photos? Nope and she got a pass.

    Guess Hollyweird whitewashes who they want to whitewash. Especially when that person just won an award.

  28. jc126 says:

    So how long are we supposed to believe that Sandra Bullock had no idea about any of this? It’s one thing to find it plausible that she didn’t know he was a cheater, but she had no idea he had a Nazi fixation?

  29. Catherine says:

    I’m sorry, but can someone tell me why this man is the least bit newsworthy, interesting, or supposedly attractive to women? There are a lot of other chopper artists who are more deserving of the publicity than this fool, so why do we even care about him in the least? I’m just looking to be informed…properly….

  30. bluhare says:

    To everyone who says SB cannot be that naive, I agree with you. She’s one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and reputed to be very savvy with her money. She owns property and businesses. Yeah, I bet her net worth plummeted with the real estate crash, however, she is a businesswoman. Making it to the top echelon in the film biz isn’t for the faint of heart.

  31. S_____ says:

    Why did Sandra have to know anything? Weren’t any of you cheated on or lied to?
    My husband cheated for 4 years. 4! Through two children. I even hung out with the girl. Did I know? No. Cause I thought I knew him.
    You don’t go looking for what you don’t know is there.

  32. the original bellaluna says:

    Alright, Ladies: Listen up! If a man wants to keep his secrets, he can be the most clever idiot in the world. Some men (and women, too) possess the ability to be so shady, so shifty, so absolutely deceptive…they can pull the wool over ANYONE’S eyes. Judge not lest ye be judged.

    I’ve been there; hated it; done that. My (now) ex was a deceitful, evil thing. As most men do, he tried to convince me I was “CRAZY” for thinking he was cheating on me. Yeah, if “crazy” means “totally right.” Stop that train of thinking on the tracks, ladies. It is a nasty line of thinking, and there is NO EVIDENCE to that it’s justified thinking.

    And just because SB’s a great business woman doesn’t mean she’s a suspicious-by-nature-person who would marry (or stay married to) a man she didn’t trust. Some very savvy business minds; very intelligent scientific/mathematical minds, are very lacking in the common sense/daily survival/social skills department. TRUST. One of them is my eldest son.

  33. Bored says:

    Sandra Bullock has an excellent pr team. LoL

  34. Praise St. Angie! says:

    thank you original bellaluna, you said it very well.

    I’d just like to add…how long were they married? five or so years? in those five years, how much time did they spend together, living under the same roof? between the two careers and both traveling for those careers, he had plenty of time to himself to indulge in all sorts of things and then cover it up.

    there are women who are married for years, and living under the same roof with a cheating spouse for almost 100% of those years, and they never know until the other woman lets them know. if they trust their spouse completely, they’d have no need to go checking into his life outside of their marriage, no need to look through his phone, email, pockets…etc. as was said above, you don’t go looking for you don’t know is (or even think might be) there.

  35. cara says:

    For starters, how the hell did it “slide” everyone’s attention from the getgo that this ass’s company’s LOGO was a NAZI symbol!!! And this was Pre-Bullock! So DUH on everyone!

    Word on the street, the Von Dutch guy was a former southern Cali skinhead as well.


  36. Karen says:

    There is good reason why when Original Bellaluna speaks, I always lean closer to my monitor to read what she says :)

    I live in Canada and a few months ago we were disgusted but glued to the news media as they reported the despicable acts of former Army colonel Russell Williams. Although he was “happily” (ugh!) married to his wife for nearly 20 years, she had no idea that he was a serial rapist and double murderer who also broke into the homes of his neighbours over 75 times to commit fetish crimes and photographed/catalogued the evidence hidden in his home. He flew dignitaries including our Prime Minister and rose the ranks of the armed forces but hid his horrible crimes until his cockiness got the better of him. Nobody knew he was a monster until he was caught.

    So after all of that and similar stories (not all involving murderous spouses), I can absolutely believe that Sandy had no idea. She knew he had a troubled past (only a newborn infant would not be able to comprehend that he wasn’t always a “good guy”) but I’m willing to bet cash money that she would not knowingly try to co-parent with a man who gets hard for Hitler!!

  37. Bopa says:

    I think she knew. I don’t think the Nazi thing was a deal breaker for her but the cheating and media frenzy after it was too much. I think she thought she lived in a perfect bubble and once she saw everything coming out she ran for the hills. You don’t marry someone and be with them for a couple years and not know they have an issue with Jews and a love affair with Nazi’s that doesn’t happen.

  38. dahlia47 says:

    “This bitch is all about the Aryan race, all about Nazi fetishism, and all about the white-power biker culture. It’s disgusting.”

    I kind of doubt that he is all of this, since Kat is a Latina.

  39. what? says:

    The original Aryans actually come from Persia (Iran) i wonder if jesse would be so into this ideology if he knew that!

  40. Bodhi says:

    Kat is actually German, Italian & Spanish, but she was born in Mexico. The “D” stands for Drachenberg.

    But thats neither, here nor there; I am still peeved about equating bikers with neo-Nazis…

    Edit: And since Hitler couldn’t be bothered with the fact that the original Aryans were FAR from Nordic, I doubt that Jesse would give a shit either!

  41. itiswhatitis says:

    Of course there are people who wake up to find out that they have been living with a husband who was leading another life on the side. We all understand that. However, usually when this happens and everyone is stunned, it’s more so because the person was trying to project a squeaky clean image.

    Are you telling me that there is nothing about Jesse that just gives off the obvious warning signs? Porn star ex-wife, obvious discomfort in his own skin (pics on the red carpet attest to this), his friends, his tastes and interests etc.

    I mean we are not talking about Tiger Woods here, who shocked everyone. He appeared wholesome and wholesome looking girl married him. However, wholesome looking Sandra thought everything was peachy keen with Jesse? Jesse does not appear smart enough to have to fooled Sandra with an alter ego 24/7.


  42. Mistral says:

    I don’t think Sandra knew he was into the whole Nazi thing. I sincerely believe that she would never condone such viewpoints, and I don’t think her “nice girl” image and popularity is the result of slick PR: by now, something would have come out (she’s been in the biz since the 90′s!).You never hear any asshole stories about her from people she’s worked with. I think she is genuinely a nice person who married/fell for a charming liar.

  43. beanie says:

    I seriously think she didn’t know. Poor girl got dickmatized by the Vanilla Gorilla. LOL! Anyway, she was wise enough to walk away from him and she has her adorable baby to console her.
    AND she to add to her credit, she didn’t drop Jessie’s kids but continue to be in their lives. I know that has to be hard but she not blaming the kids for something they had nothing to do with.

  44. dragonlady sakura says:

    Don’t judge Sandra harshly for this “mans” behavior. We’ve all met or perhaps dated questionable people. I don’t think Sandra knew the full extent of his personality. Obviously. Say what you want about this idiotic d-bag Jesse, but if he is a real neo-Nazi, there is no way in hell he’d go along with adopting a black baby!! He’d sooner drink gasoline than parent this adorable child.

  45. steve says:

    Isn’t he friends with Mel Gibson?

  46. Indigo says:

    When they got engaged, the statement said something like “we can’t think of any reason to wait.” How about waiting until your KIDS have adjusted? That sure seems like a reason.

  47. Disbelieving says:

    I think there are quite a few women, myself included, who have made a poor choice in a spouse despite being astute and intelligent. And less face it, his behavior is far more offensive than hers. How about giving her the benefit of the doubt this one time. It isn’t like she has multiple bad choices in marriage.

    Hate to say it but Kat we can condemn. Start paying attention girl!

  48. Kiska says:

    I often think wives are the last to know. Some men have these double lives and Jesse is one of them. I really don’t
    think Sandra knew this was going on.

    He is the scum of the earth.

  49. Sally says:

    Agreed with Bellaluna and Karen. If someone has something to hide, they can hide it if they really want to.

  50. Bodhi says:

    @ Hakura~ I understand what you mean, but I think it is PARAMOUNT to differentiate between biker culture & biker gangs. There is a HUGE difference & it is very important that people know that. Perpetuating the myth that all bikers are racist misogynistic bastards is both unfair & dangerous, just like perpetuating stereotypes about anyone. A very VERY small percentage of bikers are actually in gangs. Most bikers have 9-5 jobs, happy families, do charity work & go to swap meets on the weekend. The vast majority of bikers have nothing to do with gangs of any sort & would hate to be lumped in with them

  51. Hakura says:

    @Bodhi – I was *really* only trying to refer to the gangs (who have their own ‘biker culture’, which I was referring to) not the average bike enthusiast. I must not have worded it well, so I’m sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I would certainly never be ignorant enough to perpetuate a stereotype, especially as I have family that ride motorcycles, so I definitely appreciate the major differences between the two.

    I know not everyone who rides a motorcycle is a ‘Hell’s Angel’ or hate monger. I’m referring to the hard core gang bikers involved in drugs, violence & other sorts of crime. Their sense of ‘honor’ is just fucked up, their wives (or ‘bitches’) are second class citizens, on top of their being very openly racist. They also have a lot of ‘Nordic’ symbols (such as ‘Thor’ & ‘Lightning’), but I’d *never* imply that being Nordic has anything in common with those gangs.)

    Much of *their* (the gang’s) culture includes white supremacist symbols & ideals, so being a part of such a group is as good as an admission of those beliefs. I got the impression that Jesse, while I don’t think he’s half ‘bad ass’ enough to be part of that sort of group, shares their beliefs if nothing else.

  52. Hakura says:

    I forgot to add… I know it wasn’t worded the most clearly, but I admit I’m a little offended to have been perceived as so ignorant.

  53. Bodhi says:

    I forgot to add… I know it wasn’t worded the most clearly, but I admit I’m a little offended to have been perceived as so ignorant.

    I am sorry that you feel that way, it certainly wasn’t my intention. I was trying to clarify for those who may not have known that there is an actual difference. I don’t think that you are ignorant & I apologize if my comment came off that way.
