In the midst of a custody battle against Sandra Bullock and Jesse James, Janine Lindemulder sat down with Life & Style on Dec. 4 to set the record straight about her controversial occupation, co-parenting with Sandra Bullock and Jesse James, and why she wants 5-year-old daughter, Sunny, back.
L&S: Why continue starring in adult movies?
Janine: I like my job. I'm good at it. I've been a porn star for 23 years. It's what I did right out of high school. If I won the lottery, would I do it? No. I don't see myself in this for very much longer.
L&S: Do you make enough to support Sunny?
Janine: At this moment, no. That's why I'm not going into the courtroom saying I want her completely now. But I do have 50 percent legal custody.
L&S: Does Jesse help?
Janine: I'm not getting any money from Jesse. What would make him happy is if I just vanished off the planet. I'm in fear of what Jesse's capable of doing. [I suspect that] he had a hacker erase 30 e-mails from when Sunny was born. The e-mails said, "I don't want Sunny to have my last name. Find her a new daddy." After he showed no interest in the first six months, I moved to Oregon. He said, "Good, the farther, the better." He wanted nothing to do with Sunny for three years of her life.
L&S: Has Sandra reached out to you at all?
Janine: We haven't even had a conversation. They couldn't care less what I have to say. They changed Sunny's school a while ago and didn't tell me. I found out from Sunny.
L&S: So what's next?
Janine: I want them to be in the picture. Let's all get along and put our own issues aside. We've got another 13 years that we've got to deal with each other.
