Last January, Sandra Bullock publicly praised husband Jesse James for having her back. Now, almost exactly a year later, Bullock's ex-husband is publicly praising the woman who "stood behind" him.
In a statement issued to People magazine, the “most hated man in the world" gushed about tattoo artist Kat Von D, his new fiancee.
"You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs. I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!

-Evan Rachel Wood may have been a bride on True Blood, but she won’t be getting married in real life. The actress and musician Marilyn Manson have called off their engagement.
-The Millionaire Matchmaker won’t be walking down the aisle either. Patti Stanger has ended her wedding plans with Andy Friedman, her boyfriend of over six years. The two just couldn’t agree on the kids thing. (She wants them more than he does.)
-There may be a happily ever after for Hilary Duff, though. She wed Canadian hockey player Mike Comrie over the weekend in Santa Barbara.
-Has Jesse James already moved on from his relationship with Sandra Bullock? According to spies, the tattooed man was spotted holding hands with another fan of the body art: Kat Von D. Her rep claims the two are just friends.
Sandra Bullock and Jesse James have finalized their divorce.
A spokesperson for Bullock - who split from husband Jesse in April following allegations he had cheated on her with a string of women - confirmed the couple signed papers last week to formally put an end to their five-year marriage. Citing “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason behind the split, the official divorce allows the Oscar-winning actress to complete her adoption of son Louis as a single parent.
The pair adopted the baby boy from New Orleans shortly before they split amid the avalanche of affair claims, which included tattoo model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee revealing she’d had an 11-month affair with Jesse. Jesse - who went to rehab following the separation to be treated for sex addiction - is also believed to have slept with at least five other women during his relationship with Sandra.
Jesse James checked into rehab to help get over his abusive childhood.
The motorcycle entrepreneur - who allegedly cheated on estranged wife Sandra Bullock with at least four women - entered Arizona’s Sierra Tucson Rehab Facility last month and while he was getting treatment for sex addiction and anger management he also wanted to stop his violent father dictating his personal life.
We’ve already heard (many times) what Michelle “Bombshell” McGee has had to say about being
the other woman and we’ve read Sandra Bullock’s interview with People. Now, it’s Jesse James’ turn to have his say.
Next week, ABC will air the first television interview with the man Bullock once believed had her back. The Nightline chat with reporter Vicki Mabrey will reportedly address James’ affairs, his stint in rehab and his role in Louis Bardo Bullock‘s life.

“Now I think men are made to spread their seed. Women need to accept that. If you’re going to be married to somebody, you need to know that men are not meant to be with one woman. I think you can totally love your spouse and still sleep with other women. That urge will always be there if you’re a man. I believe you can love your wife 100 percent and still stray.”
- Words of wisdom from Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, Jesse James’s mistress.

Sandra Bullock still wants Jesse James to play a role in her adopted son’s life.
The Oscar-winning actress has filed for divorce from the motorcycle entrepreneur following allegations he cheated on her with a string of women but says she would like him to be involved with three-month-old Louis because she knows what a great father he is.
“I will be adopting as a single parent. Anything else will be taken day by day. I have a different relationship with Jesse now. A bittersweet one. One of new understanding. One of forgiveness. One of support for his recovery. One that changed my life. I don’t really know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be with all the kids is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives.”
Jesse - who recently left rehab following treatment for sex addiction - has three children, Chandler, 15, Jesse Jr., 12, and six-year-old Sunny, from previous marriages and Sandra would also like the kids to be involved in Louis’ life: “I know my role is not one that exists on paper, but Louis is their brother, and Jesse and I will do whatever it takes for them to know that their world will not change and still be protected and safe and full of love. It will just have a slightly different dynamic now.”
Note: If you ever want to keep something a secret, you should apparently move into Sandra Bullock‘s household.
Earlier today, People broke news on a story possibly more shocking than Jesse James’ cheating ways: the Oscar winner has actually been playing mother to an adopted baby boy…since January. Since before the Academy Awards. Since before James’ affairs were even revealed.
The world exclusive report broke this morning, as did news of an impending divorce. A “sad” and “scared” Bullock confirmed to the magazine that she has indeed filed papers to end her five-year marriage.
