Sandra Bullock’s Husband’s Ex Won’t Get Visitation Rights
The legal battle over Sandra’s stepdaughter Sunny continues.

Sandra Bullock and her husband Jesse James may have full custody of James’ 6-year-old daughter Sunny, but that doesn’t mean the legal battle over her stepdaughter is over.
Sunny’s mother, former adult film star Janine Lindemulder, does not have visitation rights, but was granted the right to make daily phone calls to her daughter. Lindemulder spent six months in jail last year for tax evasion, and is currently in a halfway house due to a parole violation.
James complained in court on Monday that Lindemulder is unreliable and isn’t always appropriate when speaking with their daughter. “[Lindemulder texts] up to 20 times a day, demanding to talk to Sunny…But sometimes she’ll go a week at a time where she doesn’t make a call,” James said.
He said she even speaks to their daughter about her time in jail. “There’s a lot of conversation about prison or jail and things that I don’t think a 6-year-old can comprehend or process.”
James and Lindemulder were ordered to attend joint counseling. Another hearing is set for June 14. (Us Magazine)
