Michelle "Bombshell" McGee's father is defending his daughter for having a torrid 11-month affair with Sandra Bullock's husband Jesse James. Denny McGee, a barber in Ohio, tells the local Fox affiliate that James, 40, assured McGee he had separated from his wife of nearly five years, Bullock, 45. "[James said], 'They have a thing now where they kind of live apart and she's on the scene for movies in stuff, and I'm here in San Diego,'" Denny said.
Denny says his daughter, 32, became infuriated after seeing the couple together at the Oscars. "She was under the impression they weren't seeing each other. She felt [betrayed]... she felt like she was going to have a relationship and this happened and she was mad," he says.
A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now, that Michelle was paid $30,000 to sell her story shortly after. Since then, "I don't think she's had contact with Jesse James," Denny says. "I don't think they're on speaking terms right now."
Michelle "doesn't really bring up Sandra Bullock's name," continues Denny. "She's more or less taking up her own business right now, and she's not really concerned about Jesse and Sandra right now."
An insider told Us that James "ruined" Bullock's life with news of the affair. How's Michelle coping? "She's doing great," her dad says. "She's in seclusion right now. I'm all concerned... she's cool with it, [saying], 'We're gonna make it through this good.'"
He says his daughter is not a homewrecker. "The truth of the matter is, going into this whole thing with Jesse James, Michelle was single, and she was under the assumption that Jesse was single. As far as I'm concerned, they were two single people going out with each other, and there's nothing wrong with that," he says.
Michelle is in no way innocent and I believe knew what she was getting into from day one. How could she be so stupid to believe Jesse and Sandra were seperated? It is simple...she is a fame-whoring woman who wants money and 15 minutes of fame and doesn't care how she gets it.
