Motorcycle mogul, self-sabotager and notorious cheater (and not to mention, the breaker of Sandra Bullock's heart) Jesse James broke down in court on Wednesday during his ongoing custody trial with ex-wife Janine Lindemulder over their adorable six-year-old daughter Sunny. During the hearing, James discussed his abuse he endured at the hands of his father as a child and his adult struggle with alcoholism, reports People. The tattooed tough guy showed his sensitive side when he was questioned by his pre-Bullock ex-wife's lawyer if he had hit rock bottom. James said, "I am continuing treatment." He also said that he raised himself as a kid, since his father was abusive. He has gone on record saying that his shame over his abused past drove him to sabotage his life and push away everything that was good, including his adoring ex-wife Bullock.
James' voice filled with emotion when said he has "been living in the shadow of that my whole life. I've always hated my sister, but as bad as I got beat, she got it even worse." James also testified he became an alcoholic at the age of 14 or 15. He also admitted that while in rehab in March, his daughter stayed with Bullock in Austin, Texas, where she was hiding out and nurturing newly adopted son Louis. Bullock and the little girl have a very close relationship.
Will Jesse James ever catch a break?
