With New Baby, Sandra Bullock Not After Custody of Stepkids


I know. I heard it, too: Sandra Bullock adopted a baby boy last winter. But there is still one small bit of housekeeping to finish up regarding the her step-kids. Yesterday, Sandra Bullock’s rep confirmed that the spurned actress will not be going after custody of Jesse James’ kids in the course of their divorce proceedings. While Bullock was reportedly watching Sunny, Chandler and Jesse Jr, for at least part of the duration of estranged husband Jesse Jame’ stint in rehab, the arrangement was temporary and not laying the groundwork for any permanent arrangements.

“She has absolutely no plans to get custody of Jesse James’ children,” her spokesperson said.

Now this is all pretty interesting, in that Bullock adopted the new baby, Louis Bardo with Jesse James back before any of this craziness happened with his extramarital affairs. She will be raising the baby as a single mom, though, and the baby has her last name. I wonder if part of the agreement she has hammered out in her divorce is that he won’t go after joint custody of the baby if she doesn’t go after his kids?

But will she be maintaining a relationship with his kids at all? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
