After years of custody battles and court dates, Jesse has obtained full custody of his daughter Sunny from her mother Janine Lindemulder.
After breaking off his engagement to Kat Von D, Sandra Bullock‘s ex Jesse James, 42, was awarded sole custody of his daughter Sunny, 7, in an Orange County, Calif., courthouse on Monday, July 25, following a three years long acrimonious court battle with her mother, adult film star Janine Lindemulder.
Throughout their marriage, Sandra worked alongside Jesse and the court in order to ensure her husband was given full custody of Sunny.
Jesse’s attorney John Schilling tells People.com that if Janine chooses to relocate to Texas to be near Sunny, she’ll be ordered to inpatient rehab. If she remains in California, she’ll only get monitored visitation of her daughter.
Janine was jailed for tax evasion in 2008 after prosecutors said she failed to pay more than $200,000 in taxes owed to the Internal Revenue Service.
“Jesse feels vindicated,” Schilling says. “This is what he’s been claiming all along, that Janine needs therapy.”
