Jesse James Lied About Being Abused

In last night’s Nightline interview, Jesse James claimed he’d been abused by his dad, which is what made him cheat on Sandra Bullock.

James talked about his dad breaking his arm when he was 7-years-old, but is it true? According to his stepmom, no. Janina James Coan has come forward to say the allegations Jesse made are not true.

Coan told TMZ Jesse was always coming home with bruises and broken bones, but it was because he was into motocross. Coan says, "Larry was the most caring father, the kindest father who would do anything for anybody. He loved Jesse to death and would brag about him all the time."

She did admit that Jesse and his father never got along, and it stemmed from one incident in which he called the cops on his own son for a crime he committed at age 16.

She claims Jesse's dad found out his son and a friend robbed a Fotomat, so he called the cops on him. Coan says Jesse went to juvie for it, and was really angry that his own father would turn him in.

Jesse may have had a tough childhood, but he can’t sit there and make excuses for what he did to Sandra!
