Jesse James and his wife, Sandra Bullock, won't be spending Christmas with Jesse's daughter, Sunny, after a judge ruled in favor of Jesse's ex-wife (and Sunny's mother) Janine Lindemulder, during a hearing in an Orange County, Calif., court yesterday.
"Jesse sat quietly in court and let his lawyer to do the talking, while his ex represented herself," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "She was told she could pick up Sunny at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and return her by 6 p.m. the next day, but her husband, Jeremy Aikman, a two-time felon, won't be allowed to be there."
Sandra, who did not attend the hearing, has been helping her husband raise Sunny, 5, since January, when Lindemulder was imprisoned for tax evasion. Since her release, Lindemulder has been involved in a bitter custody battle with Jesse and has faced accusations of being an unfit mother.
Although Lindemulder's request for regular sleepovers was denied, an exception was made for the holidays. Jesse's lawyer battled to have the special request thrown out because Lindemulder is doing Web-cam porn from her house, but the judge sided with the mother.
Jesse, visibly upset afterward, refused to comment as he left court. Lindemulder told Life & Style, "I'm so excited about Christmas. I can't believe it. Thank God."
