sandra bullockSandra Bullock, 45, is single after finalizing her divorce from Jesse James.

Divorce proceedings started in April after Sandra learned that Jesse,her husband of 5 years, was having an affair with tattooed model Michelle McGee. PEOPLE magazine stated the divorce papers cited: “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason for the divorce.

24-year old “Bombshell” McGee and Jesse James started their affair when Bullock was filming “The Blind Side”. The affair between Jesse James and McGee carried on for 11 months.

McGee, mother of two, released a statement to INTOUCH saying: “I would never have hooked up with him if I thought he was a married man. He gave me the impression they were separated.”

After the affair surfaced, 41-year-old Jesse James issued a pubic apology to Bullock saying: “There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way.”

Bullock and James met in 2003 when Sandra took her 10-year-old godson to meet Jesse James and tour the set of “Monster Garage” in Long Beach California.  They married on July 16, 2005 in a sunset ceremony under a white circus-style tent and later started proceedings to adopt a baby. Shortly after the paperwork for the adoption was submitted, Bullock learned of her husband’s affair.

Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock later completed the adoption of Louis Bardo as a single parent. The 5 1/2 month old baby boy has been living with Bullock since January.  She stated to PEOPLE: “All I know is that I want to be able to enjoy being a mom. Doing all the things moms get to do, outside in the sun, in the world. The career will have to wait for a bit.” She added that she is now “focused on raising her son and that her relationship with her ex-husband is a different one. A bittersweet one, one of new understanding, one of support for his recovery, one that changed my life.”

We wish Sandra Bullock the very best as a new mother and in continuing career success.
