What a sad image! Little Sunny James, along with her grandmother, was spotted moving Sandra’s things out of the home the actress shared with Sunny’s dad, Jesse James! The little girl must be devastated to have another family fall apart.
What a heartbreaking day for little Sunny James, 6! Jesse James‘ daughter — who had been living with Jesse and Sandra Bullock in Sunset Beach for over a year — looks so sad as she helps her grandmother move Sandra’s things out of their home.
Sandra and Jesse were the sole parents to Sunny after the girl’s mother, porn star Janine Lindemulder, went to jail for tax evasion in January 2009 — but now that Sandra has moved out, and Jesse is in rehab, Jesse’s mom, Carol, is taking care of her.
Sandra played a huge part in Sunny’s life, helping her husband fight for custody of the little girl, and creating a safe and loving home for her. There were often photos of Sandra out shopping or spending time with Sunny, who Sandra described as “delightful” and “creative.” But on Apr. 1, in the midst of Sandra and Jesse’s very public split, Sunny and Carol helped remove Sandra’s things from the house. (Note that even Jesse’s own mother is on Sandra’s side!)
Just as recently as November 2009, Sandra pleaded for a judge to allow Sunny to stay and live with her and Jesse, instead of with Janine, who Jesse divorced in 2003. “We have now created a home where Sunny flourishes and feels safe,” Sandra said in a letter to the judge in Jesse’s custody case. “She sleeps soundly and she has her own room.”
Poor little Sunny! We really hope that her mother and grandmother support her spending time with Sandra, who has been a great influence on the little girl’s life! —Corynne Steindler
