My, how she's changed.

At age 15 (the same year she claims she got her first tattoo), Michelle McGee -- Jesse James' alleged mistress -- was a fresh-faced student at North High School in Eastlake, Ohio.

Not only was she an Honors student, she also was on the soccer team, a cheerleader and a talented track and field student. A profile in her yearbook lists her as being involved in library and guidance groups as well.

By 18, McGee (who says she was raised Amish) changed her look, going from curly hair to an alternative short blonde hairstyle. She also sported a stud in her eyebrow.

She graduated in 1996 and fled to the West Coast, where she went on to model for tattoo magazines and adult Web sites. She now works at the Pure Platinum Strip Club in San Diego, Calif. (Her nickname: "Bombshell.")

"She's very comfortable with who she is and what she believes in," her Pure Platinum Strip Club coworker Mary Guzman tells Us.
