Jesse James’ ex gets 6 mo. in prison- will he & Bullock care for her daughter?

Janine Lindemulder
Popular porn star Janine Lindemulder has been sentenced to six months in federal prison on tax evasion charges. She pled guilty in August to not paying nearly $300,000 in taxes she owed the US government on her earnings. Lindemulder failed to make any federal tax payments for six consecutive years – from 2000 to 2006. She was sentenced on Monday to six months in federal prison and must report by March 10 to serve her term. She will also have to pay back all the money she owes to the government and once she’s released from prison she’ll have to spend up to six more months at a “federally operated residential community corrections center.”

Lindemulder specializes in on-screen scenes with women and has recently appeared in adult films with Jenna Jameson. You may known her as the naughty nurse with the glove on Blink 182’s album cover for “Enema of the State.” She is also an ex wife of Jesse James, actress Sandra Bullock’s current husband, and has a nearly five year-old daughter, Sunny, with James. James and Lindemulder broke up when she was seven months pregnant, with some reports claiming that James left Lindemulder for Bullock.

Last year James filed court papers seeking 50% custody of Sunny and alleging that Lindemulder was abusing the girl based on circumstantial evidence. Sunny was said to have cried out in her sleep “don’t touch me” and to have had minor scratches and bruises that she blamed on “mommy’s chair.” The rumor at the time that James sought increased custody was that Bullock was behind it because she wanted to spend more time with Sunny.

Now that Sunny’s mom has to spend six months in prison and up to six more months in another facility someone has to care for the girl and it may be James and Bullock.

Bullock is a step mother to James’ two other children from his first marriage, Jesse James, Jr., 8, and Chandler James, 10. They live nearby with their mother, Karla. Bullock has previously said of James’ children that she sees them as no different from biological children:

“I have children, amazing children. My love and my hopes for their future and their happiness, for their homework to be done and for them to know how smart and beautiful they are is no less than if they were my own biological children.”

Maybe she’ll have Sunny around now too. It’s sad for Sunny that her mom is going to have to go away for up to a year, but at least she has more family who will be there for her. If only Lindemulder had the sense to have paid her taxes she wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place.

    Her mother going away for a year is probably the best thing that could happen to little Sunny. Doesn’t sound like Janine will win any mother-of-the-year awards.

  2. Sol says:

    Im glad Sandra thinks of them as her children too.When my father got remarried i was 15 he went to live with her new wife.I had to stay living alone and our relationship never was normal again.Im 35 now and a couple of years ago the now ex wife asked me to forgive her for all the hurt she had put me through.
    So it is much better for this kids to see their father in a stable relationship and know that they can count with her wife and be around feeling loved.

    I love that she’s carrying her shoes and walking barefoot in that photo. I really like Sandra Bullock.

  4. Jeane says:

    Good to see a stepparent caring so much for their kids. Sadly that doesn’t happen as much as it should.

    By the way, love it when celebrities take off their heels when they are off the red carpet. That is so what I would do. I couldn’t walk a mile in heels to save my life!

  5. Jeane says:

    Well you guys beat me to it!

    May I just add that I think Jesse James is totally hot.

  6. Amy says:

    Tax-evading porn star? Sounds like mother of the year.

  7. dude wtf says:

    haha I actually met Janine once. My b/f is was friends w/ her bodyguard. She was pretty nice, but i dont know about her parenting skills.

  8. Jinxy says:

    She’s always loved children, and there are a lot of photos of her with Sunny running errands. If you are a normal person you don’t marry a man who is crazy about his kids if you don’t like them. I used to live near them and I feel bad for Janine, she’s a really sweet person who for what ever reasons just didn’t get this together.

    This also shows what a truly good friend Jenna Jameson is too, she really tried to help Janine get the money together to pay off this stupid fine. Why is the government going after this woman, plenty of corporations owe more, and the largest sector of non paying tax payers are doctors. I don’t see a line of orthopedic surgeons going in to Federal Prison, by the way all of us are paying for this idiocy. And paying thru the nose – the trial and incarceration will cost millions.

    All of them are nice people.

  9. kelly says:

    Has anyone seen James’ top lip recently? Or has he completely consumed it by now?

  10. aleach says:

    why in the title of the article it says “will he & bullock care for HER daughter”.
    its HIS daughter also. its not like shes some strange kid that james as nothing to do with.

  11. Rebecca says:

    Jesse James is not very bright. How in the hell did he graduate from a porn star wife to Sandra Bullock? She must have been desperate.

  12. Dan says:

    Hello? This woman is a PORN STAR! How in the world is she ever fit to be a mother? She should have lost her children years ago. I don’t care how nice she is, or who she’s friends with, she’s a PORN STAR.

  13. Bart says:

    A good reason to start a flat tax system

  14. Bill says:

    Its not a good situation for anyone, I’ve met her when she requested a Mold Inspection from the company I worked at.

  15. Gwyneth says:

    Oh great.It’s a total conundrum but the legal system will favor the father in this case. I feel sorry for the kid no matter what, even in the custody of her father and Bullock. Bullock has porn in her past and is also a practicing Wiccan. So this kid really has nowhere to go to have a balanced life, to have eternally blessed values instilled. Jesse James strikes me as a gangbanger opportunist. I believe his ex when she says he wanted nothing to do with the child for the first three years of her life. Now he’s a hotshot because he married Bullock (what what she thinking?)And please don’t try to tell me he and Bullock don’t use some sort of recreational drugs, at the very least booze. Poor little girl. Not that it matters, the ex is prettier than Bullock but the tattoos are offputting.

  16. Gwyneth says:

    Oh yeah and Dan, the blogger up yonder, do YOU watch porn? You keep putting she’s a PORN STAR in caps. If you watch porn and you are making these statements, guess what? You are a hypocrite.

  17. Does anyone know where i can find more info on this.

  18. Heya i am for the primary time here. I came across this board and I to find It really useful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to offer one thing again and help others like you helped me.
