Sandra Bullock knew women frequently threw themselves at her husband, Jesse James, but trusted him nonetheless, never questioning his fidelity.
“She trusted him,” a close friend of Bullock’s told PEOPLE Magazine, adding that women always “heavily targeted and pursued Jesse.”
Bullock, 45, has reportedly moved out of the family home she shared with James after hearing through the media that he had an affair with Michelle McGee. The news of James’ infidelity came only a week after Bullock took home an Academy Award for her work on the movie The Blind Side.
James, 40, apologized Thursday in a statement to PEOPLE.
“The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded. Beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment. There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me.”
