Jesse James: Custody Victory

Jesse James got a little bit of good news in his otherwise dramatic life. According to, a court-appointed attorney decided that his daughter, Sunny James, should remain in his custody and not be handed over to her mother, Janine Lindemulder.

Loni Klein told the Orange County court “Jesse James is doing a good job being a father to Sunny. Although both parents love Sunny, they do not trust one another. Janine has faced a tough road and has been getting therapy recently but still requires more treatment.”

Klein continued, “Mr. James could do with better parenting tools and should attend parenting classes. But in my opinion, at the moment Sunny should remain in Mr. James’ care.”

Jesse’s lawyer John Schilling told the court that Lindemulder was a convicted felon, porn star and drug addict, and that she also threatened to kill him.

In related news, it seems James can look forward to even more happiness, since he just bough a $2 million mansion in Austin, Texas. According to TMZ, the house features a nine bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a home gym, several swimming pools, a private movie theatre and a six-car garage.

Not too shabby. We’re glad he’s out of California!
