Reports: Bullock divorce filing near, James ditches rehab

Bullock mug Let's get up to date on the latest speculation in the sad saga of Jesse James and Sandra Bullock

RadarOnline places Bullock on the verge of filing for divorce, and says the couple's prenup includes a no-money-if-you-cheat caveat. Of course, nothing's official till papers hit the court, and we haven't seen any court filing yet, nor have we seen a copy of the prenup.

James reportedly left rehab in Arizona, the New York Post says, supposedly after Bullock wouldn't take his phone call. If Us magazine's story about nasty phone fights is true, could you blame her? 

Incidentally, some of the worst paparazzi images ever emerged last week when Sandra headed to Holmby Hills to visit another human being.

A moving truck was seen for about an hour Friday outside the Orange County home shared by the couple, TMZ reported, and items including a couch, a love seat and "tons of boxes" were removed. James' mom was also spotted at the home. 

As always, we'll keep you posted.

Jesse James and a paparazzo tangle -- and of course there's video


James wcc It isn't easy being Jesse James these days -- witness this exclusive KTLA video from paparazzo Ulises Rios showing a March 25 run-in involving Rios, Sandra Bullock's husband and another man on a street across from James' custom motorcycle shop.

Rios says he was stopped at a red light across from West Coast Choppers when James, in the helmet, rode his motorcycle over and parked in front of his car. In the video, the two appear to shout at the photographer in his car, and James' companion pulls out what Rios said is a knife and appears to hit the vehicle with it. Rios reported three slashed tires and other damage.

On the morning of March 25, a photographer called Long Beach police to report vandalism to his property. When they arrived, mutual citizen's arrests were made. James told police he was being stalked by a paparazzo, according to the New York Daily News. Authorities also ...

Jesse James buys himself some time -- er, goes to rehab

James thumbs up Yeesh, Jesse James, doesn't anyone just go to couples counseling anymore? Of course, "couples counseling" assumes that the other half of the couple wants anything to do with your sudden, possibly scandal-driven -- dare we say predictable -- desire for self-improvement. 

Surprise! James has checked himself into rehab in Arizona, TMZ reports, having gone there to save his marriage. Or that's how he described his mission to a CHP officer, TMZ says, when he was pulled over on his way to Arizona on Friday in a big old hurry.

Sierra Tucson specializes in treatment for drug, alcohol and sex addiction. Anyone want to spin that big wheel, or shall we simply make an informed guess? (Now that an unnamed member of the medical facility staff has confirmed James' presence there to TMZ, let's hope Mr. "Monster Garage" doesn't pull a Brooke Mueller and start swapping out rehabs in search of more privacy.)

It's just one more step along James' Tiger Lite path -- dude, you're supposed to sneak off and make it a big mystery, right? And don't you dare bring Cinnabun as a prop for the press conference when you get back. Even Tiger Woods wouldn't do that.

RadarOnline is reporting that Sandra Bullock had a hunch her hubby was up to something ...

Jesse James' maybe-mistress No. 4 develops a case of the dainties

Gloria We wish we could've been in Gloria Allred's office earlier, if only to discover whether she spits, swears, throws things or simply meditates calmly when a client opts out of the spotlight.

The woman who we know only as Self-Reported Jesse James Mistress No. 4 -- a.k.a. the one who hired Allred -- has decided not to go public with her story, the attorney told Radar Online

The part that had interested us about this lovely lady was that she said, through Allred, that the alleged relationship had ended just after the scandal broke. Which was icky enough that we wanted to know more. Kinda. But not really.

So, with apologies to the Bud Light folks, the Ministry of Gossip salutes you, Ms. Suddenly Shy Self-Reported Jesse James Mistress No. 4!

While the dirty laundry of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, Melissa Smith and Brigitte Daguerre is aired to an icked-out public, perhaps you had the sense to think, "I pale in comparison to Sandra Bullock, and people might notice!"

When tabloid bucks beckoned, even as you dangled the promise of electronic proof as bait ...

PARTY OF NO! No Mrs. Michael Jackson; no KStew-Jesse James mistress link; no more music from Miley Cyrus

Jackson michael The Ministry of Gossip is throwing a little "party of no" -- or maybe it's a "party of know" -- as we close out the week. Grab what you want from the fridge, there are snacks out on the patio, and you can grab a seat anywhere.

Now seems like a good time to get a few things straight, no?

There is no secret Mrs. Michael Jackson, the singer's estate reports to the court. This should upset a few folks who've sent a few e-mails. You know who you are. TMZ

Similarly, there is no Christmas-dinner BFF link between "The Runaways" star Kristen Stewart and self-reported Jesse James Mistress No. 3, Brigitte Daguerre. Gossip Cop

Also, no good reason to hang around Jesse James' West Coast Choppers with a camera. CBS News

No sign of Sandra Bullock. Celebrity-Gossip.net

No reason to worry your text messages will be sold to a tabloid. Tiger Text

No divorce brewing for Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. OK! Magazine

No place like (a new) home for Susan Boyle. People

Also, no more music from Miley Cyrus after her June release. She's all about movies now. E! Online

Hopefully that's enough oppositional behavior to get you through the night. Let's toast to a good weekend, shall we?

PREACH IT! There’s a Team Jesse? And there are people on it besides Jesse?

James mug It didn’t seem possible only a few days ago, but there it is. People -- real live human beings with brainstems and higher functions -- are coming out in support of Jesse James.

One of those people is is Jesse James, yes, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

First, the other people, starting with comedian Russell Brand. At last night’s Victoria’s Secret swim party, Brand was asked what he thought of James and that other pillar of fidelity, Tiger Woods.

“I like them!” he told E! Online. “They seem like nice guys.”

Yes, this is the same Russell Brand who is engaged to Katy Perry and thinks he can stay that way while saying nice stuff about Jesse James.

Anyway. We move on.

James’ employees are also being trotted out, or -- wait, did I just write that? Silly, cynical me. Let’s try that again. James’ employees are coming out, totally on their own without any prodding, to support their boss.

"Jesse is like family," one employee tells People. "He's just a righteous guy. If I have a personal problem, he'll sit and talk to me. Not once have I felt uncomfortable with him ... He's just a sweet guy. Hearing all this stuff about him is just sad. I don't believe any of it."

(Maybe this isn’t a good time to bring up the fact...

Bombshell McGee's dad knew about Jesse James

James bullock oscars Denny McGee, father of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, knew his daughter was involved with Jesse James -- he even asked her if her new guy pal was married to Sandra Bullock. Her answer fell along the lines of "not exactly."

Michelle McGee is, of course, the first in a series of women -- the list is up to three or four now -- to claim a sexual relationship with the West Coast Choppers owner.

"She told me that she was going out with Jesse James," said Denny, a barber in Ohio who gets our vote as least likely to be linked to a scandal. "And I'm like, 'Jesse James the cowboy's been dead for 100 years.' And she said, 'No, Dad, Jesse James the motorcycle guy.' "

When he asked if James was married to Bullock, Denny said, Michelle told him "they were, but they have a thing now where they kind of live apart and she's on the scene for movies."

Michelle decided to tell (er, sell?) her story after seeing James and Bullock together ...

Second woman says she slept with a married Jesse James

James back Another woman, Melissa Smith, has gone to another tabloid, the Star, with another allegation of an affair with Jesse James, Sandra Bullock's husband. 

Tattoos? Check. Stripper? Check. Social media involved? Check check.

Smith -- who TMZ reports has had run-ins with the law and done jail time -- had shopped her story and picture around to various publications, including People, that magazine reports. Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, the first woman to allege an affair with James, sold her story to InTouch.

Smith says James reached out to her on MySpace, and she traveled to California to his office, where they had sex.

“I feel sorry for Sandra because she was so in love with Jesse that she was blind and gullible," Janine Lindemulder, James' ex-wife, told InTouch. "She once said, 'I finally have a man who has my back.' And all I could think was, 'No. You have this man who does it behind your back.' "

Also surfacing from James' past: A report of a sexual harassment suit filed ...

Report: Sandra Bullock's back in town, but not back home

Bullock on stage Sandra Bullock arrived in Southern California on Tuesday night from her Austin, Texas, hideaway, an insider tells Fox411 exclusively, and though she's not headed back to the O.C. place just yet, "she doesn't want to jump into divorce -- she thought she had her soul mate" in husband Jesse James.

"She's staying in her own place separate from him in California," the source said, noting that Bullock is sorting things out step by step. "She still wants space, and she's very focused." 

Having seen Sandy in action after the Academy Awards on March 7, James hovering nearby, the Ministry does not doubt the "very focused" part one bit. Others apparently noticed that focus as well.

Bullock's still working and "plans to take meetings again soon," the source said.

Deep in the weeds with Sandra Bullock, Jesse James

White bullock The news breaks, the stories fly, the parties involved stay mum, the speculation sets in. Guess where we are in the business of Sandra Bullock and Jesse James

Deep in the weeds.

There has been speculation about both spouses chatting up divorce attorneys, as well as official denial of that speculation. Some folks are wondering where Bullock is (echoes of the "Where's Tiger" debacle, anyone?). We know she's definitely not in Berlin, where, like in London, the red carpet premiere of "The Blind Side" was canceled.

RadarOnline says that Michelle "Bombshell" McGee — whose ex-husband Shane Modica told Us Magazine that he doesn't believe anything his ex-wife says and that she's motivated by fame and money — has hired security in the wake of threats. She's also been fired from another porn website, according to TMZ.

McGee's Michelle Bombshell website is up and running again on new servers, according to her unprintable Twitter account. For only $9.95 a month ...
