"I feel sorry for Sandra because she was so in love with Jesse that she was blind and gullible," the New York Daily News quoted Lindemulder as saying. Lindemulder, 41, is in a halfway house in Oregon after being charged with tax evasion. "[Bullock] once said, I finally have a man who has my back. And all I could think was, No, you have this man who does it behind your back," she said.
James, who married the Oscar-winning Bullock in 2005, had an 11-month affair with a tattooed stripper from San Diego named Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. The 45-year-old actress has been in hiding since the affair was made public last week, cancelling two overseas premieres for her movie, "The Blind Side."
Lindemulder, who has a daughter with James, said he first cheated on her just weeks after they were married in 2002.
