Jesse James' alleged tattooed mistress Michelle McGee hasn't been in contact with the biker, 40, since news broke of their affair last week.
But over the weekend, she praised him for the way he treated her during their alleged 11-month affair.
"He was a nice guy -- most guys who do what he does have an attitude," she told the New York Post. "But he was gentle."
But she told the Post right now she is more concerned about a custody battle with her ex-husband Shane Modica over their 5-year-old son, Avery.
On Saturday, McGee -- who reportedly has returned to work at the Pure Platinum Strip Club in San Diego -- visited her son, who was with his father in San Diego. As she said goodbye, she planted a kiss on Avery's cheek.
In court papers filed Friday, Modica asked for temporary and legal custody of the boy, whom he said was in danger in light of McGee's sex scandal.
"If she sees Avery, she will bring these curiosity seekers and glory hounds down on herself and Avery, totally confusing him and frankly scaring him," Modica wrote in legal papers.
A judge denied Modica's request.
Meanwhile, James (who's still wearing his wedding ring) returned to work at West Coast Choppers over the weekend, yelling at the swarms of photographers to leave him alone.
