Jesse James’s memoirs, “American Outlaw” was released on Tuesday. The new edition has a hard cover version and includes personal photos that weren’t shown before, plus a new chapter.
In full promotional tour around the media world, Jesse James, 42, offers new information about his marriage with Sandra Bullock and his new fiancée, Kat von D. If you know the story, she is the one James was caught cheating with. James told Nightline – in an interview on Wednesday – that his infidelity was his way of sabotaging his calm married life.
“I think I wanted to get caught.” he said, adding that family life was a lesson for him:
“I think, you know, a marriage ending, all this crazy stuff…that was like a lesson to work on myself and fix what’s wrong with me, so I don’t transfer it and keep it going, like my parents did.”
When asked about Louis, the son he and Sandra were planning on adopting together, he admitted he isn’t allowed to see him. Sandra has completed the adoption process after Jesse James left home and is now a single parent.
“I could only cry so much about him until I have to, like, suck it up and keep a stiff upper lip, and realize, hey, I have three kids that I do have” he said about the baby boy.
Although sad about losing Louis, the reality TV star lightens up when talking about his relationship with the ex-mistress and actual lover, Kat von D:
“We have something special that I’ve never felt with anyone I’ve ever been with,” he said. “She loves me like no woman ever has, 100 percent. Man, she has my back. We fell in love at the worst possible time. I’m being chased around (by paparazzi) like a dog and here comes this angel. Not only does she love me, but she loves me so much that she was willing to subject herself to everything that I was going through and (endure) all the ridicule that she got for being with me. She fell in love with me when I was being called Satan.
If that’s not a testament to what kind of a person she is and where her intentions are, I think nothing is.”
The couple got engaged in January 2011 and this time Jesse is sure to have found his soulmate.
