Reality star Jesse James appeared somber as he was spotted dropping off his children at school in Southern California on Thursday morning; just one day after news broke of his alleged infidelity to wife and recent Oscar winner Sandra Bullock.
“Jesse seemed very tense and kept biting his lower lip,” an eyewitness told People magazine. “Still, he seemed to want to keep the morning as normal as possible for the children’s sake and walk them into school hand-in-hand.”
James wasÂ reportedly wearing his wedding ring and a black hat pulled down low, onlookers told People.Â He was seen earlier in the morning at the family home he has shared with Bullock.
Bullock reportedly left the house on Monday, and news broke of the alleged infidelity on Wednesday.
The news reports cited a claim from tattoo model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee that she slept with Jesse James for about eleven months, and she provided intimate details about him for a report in In Touch magazine.Â McGee said she believed that James and Bullock were no longer together.
“I would never have hooked up with him if I thought he was a married man,” McGee toldÂ In Touch in an exclusive interview. “He gave me the impression they were separated.”
Bullock recently won her first Academy Award for her role in the movie “The Blind Side,” in which James was in attendance and they both looked happy together.Â Â BullockÂ canceled a trip to Europe for the London premiere of the film this week.
Bullock, 45, and James, 40, met in 2004 during a tour of the set of the Discovery Channel’s “Monster Garage,”Â which James starred in.Â James is the CEO of West Coast Choppers and has also appeared on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
