Jesse James apologizes to Sandra Bullock and his kids

Bullock james naacp copy Jesse James apologized to wife Sandra Bullock and his three children Thursday in a statement released to People, saying he was saddened by the "pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension" that he had caused for them.

On Wednesday, Bullock canceled a trip to London for the UK premiere of "The Blind Side" as a tabloid report alleging James cheated on his wife with a tattoo model went public. Technorati reports Michelle McGee was paid close to $30,000 for her story.

"There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me," James said in the Thursday statement. "It's because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way."

Without going into specifics, he also said that many of of the allegations -- and there are many floating around -- are unfounded, and that he wouldn't be commenting again publicly on the topic.

Representatives for James and Bullock did not respond to Associated Press calls and e-mails seeking comment.
