Sandra Bullock 'incredibly upset' as ex husband Jesse James' son arrested over assaulting former GF
AUSTIN, TEXAS: Sandra Bullock was reportedly "blindsided" upon learning that her ex-husband Jesse James' son was arrested after allegedly violating a restraining order obtained by his ex-girlfriend.
Jesse Eli James Jr, whom the West Coast Choppers founder had with ex Karla James, was sentenced to two days in prison on May 19 after he pleaded no contest to charges he assaulted his ex-girlfriend Lucee Peterson and subsequently ignored a protective order by sending her over 50 threatening messages. Jesse was reportedly arrested on domestic violence charges on April 20, 2021, but he made bail four days later and was busted again after sending disturbing social media messages to his ex. One of his texts read, "You are my girl still! I’m not looking for anyone and you better not be a h—behind my back!”
“Sandra is incredibly upset someone she cared for and raised as a mother could be capable of harming another woman,” a source close to the 57-year-old Oscar winner told Radar Online. Jesse reportedly has a lengthy criminal record, being arrested twice in April 2020 for allegedly assaulting Lucee. He was ordered at the time to cease all contact with her and was required to wear a GPS monitoring device. Lucee, in her request for a restraining order, described several incidents of alleged abuse at the hands of her ex-boyfriend.

In her petition, she detailed one incident in April 2021 that saw Jesse get enraged at her after they were evicted from their apartment. He reportedly blamed her for the situation. “Jesse started threatening to kill me,” she recounted in court documents. “Jesse said, ‘Do you want me to f------ lose my s--- and knock the rest of your f------ teeth out? …I’m gonna f------- kill you b----, I’m going to f------ punch your face into dust." In the original petition for a protective order, Lucee bemoaned, “I am afraid that Jesse will come back to my home and retaliate against me for getting him arrested again. I am afraid that Jesse will follow through on his threat to kill me."
Sandra and Jesse Sr started dating in 2003 and eventually tied the knot in 2005. However, they divorced in 2010 after multiple women accused him of cheating on his then-wife.
Jesse Sr and his current wife Bonnie Rotten were also involved in a public altercation this month after she accused him of cheating on her. While he denied the allegations, she filed for a protective order claiming he had slammed her arm into a door during a fight. However, Bonnie eventually dropped her divorce petition and request for a restraining order. The pair is currently back together and living in Jesse Sr's home. That said, unlike his celebrity mechanic dad, Jesse Jr was unable to reconcile with Lucee after a long history of domestic violence, Radar Online reported.
