Along with blaming cheating on past child abuse he suffered, Jesse James told Nightline that a divorce from Sandra Bullock may be inevitable, but he doesn't want to.
Might he still be working passive-aggressively to stop her?
According to celebrity gossip magazine, he's still fighting in hopes of a reconciliation - and has been putting his kids to work on his behalf! Calculated guilt trips = classy.
Knowing how close his will-be-ex became to Chandler, 15, Jesse Jr., 12, and Sunny, 6, during their nearly five-year marriage, he's been encouraging them all to "let Sandra know how much they miss her," the actress' friend shares.
He even had them send homemade Mother's Day cards. Weak.
James "phoned Sandra and claimed Sunny was running a fever and asked if he should bring her to the doctor," says a friend who adds that it wasn't a one-time thing.
"Sunny tells her she misses her and misses Louis," as well. Talk about going all out to break Sandra's heart, or at the very least make her feel bad. Win-win, really.
According to her friend:
- Jesse even used the children to get Sandra's support for the Nightline sit-down, saying if he can't save his reputation, it'd be hard to support the kids.
- He's been hawking old crap online in an attempt to show that he has serious money problems, supposedly, and possibly convince her to stay that way.
- He faked the contrite tears on Nightline the other night.
For once, Michelle McGee might see eye-to-eye with Sandra.
