Jesse James Writes Memoir; Doesn't Include Baby Louis

Jesse JamesJesse James was one of the most hated men in America last year after we all found out he had cheated on America’s Sweetheart, Sandra Bullock. 

Jesse is now sharing details of his life in his autobiography, American Outlaw. But one thing he isn’t including in the book is words about the baby boy he adopted with Sandra, because writing about him was too painful.

Jesse and Sandra surprised everybody when they got married in July 2005 because they seemed like such an odd couple. They also seemed extremely happy, and had a marriage everybody thought was going great up until March 2010 when we learned of Jesse’s infidelity. Their divorce was finalized in June, and Sandra never looked back.

This all took place shortly after we learned that the couple had started the adoption process four years ago, and that their son had been living with them since January 2010. They somehow kept it a total secret from everybody. Right around the time that the infidelity came to light, we also learned about Baby Louis. Sandra completed the adoption process as a single mother following their split.

In his memoir, he takes “full accountability” for his heartbreaking betrayal.  He also says that his new fiancee Kat Von D has helped him bounce back, and says: “Everything got ripped to shreds… I was at my breaking point… I’m moving forward, thinking clearly and becoming a better person… I have started life over.”

But 16 month-old Louis was something he just couldn’t bring himself to write about. “Talking about Louis almost felt too intimate. He is so sweet and I miss him.”

This is one book I won’t be reading. What about you? Do you plan to pick up American Outlaw?
