With his new book “American Outlaw” finally released, Sandra Bullock’s ex opens up about his affair and his non-existent relationship with America’s Sweetheart: ‘I can’t worry about her anymore.’

In a candid interview on Good Morning America this morning, May 4, Jesse James, 42, who some people consider the “most hated man in America,” spoke out about his relationship with Sandra Bullock, 46, and the affair that destroyed what seemed to be the perfect life. Have you forgiven Jesse for what he did?

Jesse, who is now dating TLC’s L.A. Ink star Kat Von D, tells GMA reporter Vicki Mabrey that he moved his entire family out of California to Austin, Texas in order to be closer to baby Louis, 1, and Sandra, who had a wonderful relationship with his three children, Chandler, 16, Jesse, 13, and especially, 7-year-old Sunny. But, Jesse never got to see Louis, and Sunny lost complete contact with the woman whom she considered to be her mom.

“I moved initially so the kids could keep a relationship and I could kind of keep a relationship with Louis, and then whatever else happened besides that,” Jesse explains. “I’ve never seen Louis since everything happened. “I could only cry so much about him until I have to, like, suck it up and keep a stiff upper lip, and realize, hey, I have three kids that I do have.”

And as for Sunny, Jesse reveals, “She’s seen her [Sandra] a couple of times, but no contact at all for several months.” What a shame.

But, that’s what you get when you decide to shatter not only your own life, but the lives of your children. “I knew it was horrible while I was doing it,” Jesse admits of his extramarital affair, “I wanted to get caught, it was me trying to self sabotage my life.”

And as of now, Jesse’s self sabotage has led him in a new direction and he’s focused on his life with fiancee Kat and his three kids.

“I can’t worry about her anymore,” Jesse says of Sandra. “I think I’ve spent a chunk of the last five or six years worrying about her and what she thinks and what I should do and controlling all my movements,” he adds. “I think it’s time to worry about Jesse.”

Jesse admits that he’s not trying to redeem himself in the public eye, and good thing, because it’s not working. How do YOU feel about this, HollyMoms?
