There's something very familiar about Michelle McGee, the woman who has claimed an affair with Sandra Bullock's husband Jesse James: McGee bares a striking resemblance, in both her appearance and X-rated career, to James' ex-wife, porn star Janine Lindemulder.
In photos online, McGee appears in various states of undress with many, many tattoos. (One tattoo on her forehead reads "Pray for Us Sinners," perhaps a nod to her reported upbringing with Amish parents.) Marketing herself with the nickname "Bombshell," McGee worked at an online adult website called SocalGlamourgirls.com, which features "beautiful bikini models, sexy school girls and topless glamour models" available for private web chats with paying customers.
(McGee's former boss at the website says that James was one of McGee's frequent customers.) According to RadarOnline.com, McGee has also worked as a stripper at three clubs in San Diego, Calif.
Also bearing many tattoos, Janine Lindemulder, now 41, first appeared in Penthouse magazine in 1987, and later rose to fame as a porn star. In 1998, a homemade sex tape starring Lindemulder and Motley Crew singer Vince Neil was leaked and later sold.
Lindemulder married motorcyle builder and Spike TV star James, now 40, in 2002; they have a six-year-old daughter, Sunny. But Lindemulder went to jail for six months in 2009 for tax evasion, and Bullock, 45, has been helping raise Sunny.
Following her jail time, the porn star has been battling with James and Bullock in court for custody of Sunny. Last month, a judge denied Lindemulder visitation rights. James complained to a judge that Lindemulder "has no filter" when chatting with their young daughter, and his ex-wife failed to show up on Christmas day.
The next court hearing between the exes is June 14; a judge had ordered James and Lindemulder in February to undergo joint counseling.
