Sandra Bullock Has Reportedly Cut Off All Contact With Former Stepdaughter Sunny

| Filed under: Sad SadSandra Bullock

sandra bullock not in contact with former stepdaughter

This must be tough for both Sandra AND Sunny.

For the sake of her own well-being and mental health, Sandra Bullock has been severing all ties with ex-husband Jesse James, and unfortunately it's having an impact on her relationship with former stepdaughter Sunny.

Here's what Sunny's mother Janine Lindemulder had to say about it:

"Sandra doesn’t communicate anymore with Sunny."

"Sunny never talks about her. I don’t bear any grudges against Sandra, and she has her own son [Louis, 19 months] to raise."

And here's what another source had to say about Sandra's lack of communication with Sunny:

"[Sandra] has had to completely separate herself from Jesse, which in turn meant she had to distance herself from Sunny."

"[She] has had to move on. The last thing she wanted to do was hurt Sunny, but she had to do what was best for her."

This is definitely a complicated situation, but hopefully Sandy will find a way to keep in touch with Sunny on some level, even if they just write each other letters or emails.

What do U think? Is it wrong for Sandra to cut off contact with Sunny? Or do U understand where she's coming from???

    :( Sandra's gotta do what she's gotta do to wipe that jackass from her memory bank. too bad its affecting others tho ;/

  2. 2

    I think Sandra is giving the little girl the silent treatment in order to hurt Jesse. The little girl must be devastated.

  3. 3

    her birthday is, I think the 26th

  4. 4

    Another way for Sandra to try to hurt Jesse - use the kids as pawns. And just more of the ususal "easy come, easy go" attitude Hollywood takes toward marriage. Its pathetic.

  5. 5

    Sunny has a mom and a dad who are both in her life. Why give Sandra a hard time because she has to step out of the picture after the divorce? I think it's best for all involved.

  6. 6

    no, she is not that child's mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and at this point, she is no longer her stepmother. The child is young and cannot make decisions for herself and doesn't understand adult issues (i.e. daddy and sandra breaking up). When the child is grown, she can make the decision to reach out should she want to. I don't blame Sandra, she wants to move on with her life and taking care of somebody else's kid (when that child has 2 able bodied parents) doesn't accomplish that. If this is indeed true, it's apparently what she needs to be healthy, emotionally and mentally as she now has her own child to care for.

    No longer drinking from the Poison Well.

    God you are really confused today.. You act like you have the right to an opinion while you dance in other peoples real lives. Divorce, child rearing, suicide, private matters… I mean the deeper you get into some of the bottom feeders providing you with scoop, the more obvious it gets that you are not a gossip blogger anymore. Gossip is slightly distant, you are going right for the seedy underbelly of very personal moments and put your own spin and opinion on it. You unfortunately have no idea how much it hurts, but some day you will.. and you will feel regret. Hope others show you more compassion and personal accountability than you have shown everyone in your bulls-eye.

    Who cares? Seriously! Sandra Bullock is the most boring actress this side of Julia Roberts. Who gives a fuck if she isn't talking to her FORMER STEP-DAUGHTER?! Kid's already got 2 parents. Sure they're fucked up and retarded, but that's what she got.

  10. 10

    Is anyone actually believing her loser of a mother?

  11. 11

    I would doubt that Sandra is doing this to hurt Sunny in any way. Sunny would, no doubt, talk about her dad, want advice about her dad and ask questions about what happened. Is it better to cut contact and not have to badmouth Dad? Or should she lie to protect Sunny's relationship with her Dad? It is about Sunny and what is best for her, after all. Not about Sandra and certainly not about the ever skeevy Jesse.

    Something very much like this happened to me many years ago. I cut contact with the kids after Dad and I broke up to avoid having to mediate between them, lie to them about how I felt about their Dad (who cheated on me just like Jesse did with Sandra), and to protect myself. Those girls are in their 30s now. I think about them often. I loved them very much, and my having to cut ties with them was another hard blow for them at a difficult time. Wasn't easy for me either. I sympathize with whatever feelings Sandra may be having at this time.

  12. 12

    oh fucking well. get over it. real people go through this everyday.

  13. 13

    Re: HoneyBadgerGirl – LMAO…. love it.

  14. 14

    It shows that she never really thought of herself as a parent to Sunny. If she thought of Sunny as her daughter, she wouldn't cut contact. If she wanted to she could have a relationship with Sunny without contact with Jesse. She chooses not to. I feel sorry for Sunny, but maybe she realizes that their relationship was superficial.

  15. 15

    JESSE JAMES INSISTED ON HER SEVERING TIES WITH SUNNY IF SHE SEVERED TIES WITH HIM. He would have made her life a living hell. I don't think he is through with getting revenge on Bullock yet (for leaving him and him getting bad press).

  16. 16

    Bullock would never intentionally hurt Sunny. Jesse James made it impossible for her to spend time with Sunny because he wanted her to spend time with him at the same time.

  17. 17

    your source, US mag. makes up most of their crap. Sunny has both a mother and father….. many children go through step parents, if they are upset, they need to see a child therapist…. Do we even know this is HAPPENING? and what does our opinion have to do with ANYTHING when WE ARE NOT INVOVLED AND DON'T KNOW THE REAL STORY.

  18. 18

    I can't judge her. It's awful, but if that's what it takes to get well and recover from the wounds that her ex left her, then I think she's doing what she should. It's hard for the kid, but her health should come 1º-

  19. 19

    She is the only stable mother Sunny knew frome the time she could walk….Jesse said Like a year ago the older kids got it Sandra didn't want anything to do w/ them because of him, but that Sunny didn't get why the only mom she really knew just cut her off. OOOOOOOOLLLDDD news, she cut the little girl off long ago.

  20. 20

    I can't see Sandra hurting anyone. She is just trying the move on with her life. I'm sure deep down she still has feelings for the child. But, that damn womanizer Jesse James I hope does not have anything to do with this. Very sad for Sandra and the child.
    Peace out!

  21. 21

    I think you read into that final sentence that Sandra was doing it for herself; but the truth of the matter she was doing what was best for Sunny. You dont want to give a child false hope, this was a transition for all parties, Sunny's mother, father siblings, Sandra and her family too. It would be heartless of Sandra to continue a relationship with the little girl when really it would appear as her toying with the little girls emotions.

  22. 22

    Sandra is doing the right thing. The child isn't hers anyway. She needs to put herself first.

  23. 23

    Jeanine Lindemuller is SO CREDIBLE, particularly where Sandra Bullock is concerned — consider the source.

    It wouldn't be surprising, given how manipulative Jesse was/is, incluidng uprooting and moving his kids to Austin so "they" could be close to Sandy. How far out of the realm of probability is it that, if he could have, Jesse would have tried to use Sunny to maintain any contact and relationship with Sandy that he could.

    Sunny really lost the parent lottery.

  24. 24

    isn't your "source" the porn star who lost custody while in jail?

  25. 25

    Janine SOLD$$$ this story. Jesse knocked Bullock in his book & in interviews so you KNOW Jesse knocks Bullock to Sunny. All of this is JESSE'S fault. Jesse cheated and ruined the healthy family relationship Sunny had with Sandra. He was to marry and presented Kat has new step mom. Janine voiced her hatred for Sandra for years and this is a repeat of it to PROFIT $$$ by Janine. Jesse and all of his women have SOLD$$$ story after story regarding Sandra to profit $$$. Sandra has no legal right to Sunny and the best thing for both of them is to part ways. Hopefully, the nannies show love to Sunny because both her parents suck.

  26. 26

    I find that really hard to believe. The mother of Sunny is a porn star and a convicted felon. How can you take anything she says seriously?

  27. 27

    Janine was in Jail a lot much of Sunny's young life….No matter what AWFUL things Jesse did It doesn't change the fact Sunny from the time she could walk knew Sandy as MOM. Sandy told her she was getting alittle brother, yes horrible awful jesse moved to austin so sunny could still be around sandy. Sandy did what was best for her and F#(* the kid. Yes there are courts that Have given step parents visitation especially w/ her bio moms background. Exeryone gives Sandy a pass for abandoning the kid because Jesse was an assh*()^

    She should! Why in the hell should she remind herself of what an effing pig she got fooled by? Sorry about Sunny, but she needs to worry about her son and herSELF right now.

  29. 29

    i have been in a situation JUST like this and its hard! i had to do the same thing and cut off contact despite that it hurt me more to not talk to the daughters of the douche bag that screwed me over. i loved them like they were my own! all i could do was tell them i wished it wasnt like this and how much i loved them. maybe in the future after her pain heals she can resume contact and be there for sunny, but she has to take care of herself. and maybe Jesse should have thought of his daughter for once!

  30. 30

    She had no choice and I completely understand.

  31. 31

    big fucking deal. kids understand that at some point in their lives their parents decisions arent always about them.

  32. 32

    What a Bit$$! That girl really loved her and I am sure that she could find a way to spend time with her that didn't have to involve her loser father! It seems that now Sandra has her baby Sunny is out of the picture! Poor little girl!

  33. 33

    Well then I guess we know now, the public gives you a pass for abandoning a child if you are a well liked star…..

  34. 34

    Like they say in the movie Clueless….."you divorce wives not children"……In this case husbands. She can still keep in touch with Sunny and have no involvement with that dickhead.

  35. 35

    WTF?? That girl really loved her and I am sure that she could find a way to spend time with her that didn't have to involve her loser father! It seems that now Sandra has her baby Sunny is out of the picture! Poor little girl!

  36. 36

    Sandra is very rich. She could have been in Sunny's life without ever seeing or speaking to Jesse. She could have hired a go between. For the average divorced person, I understand but I think this is f'd up for very rich ppl. I don't think Sandra should have been in Sun's life for the rest of it. She didn't have to abruptly end it either. I would have handled this a different way. Maybe fazed Sunny out but not abruptly drop the girl since Sandra was the only mother she really had.

  37. 37

    I love the way people automatically believe Jesse's drugged out ex as a source. Chances are that Jesse cut off contact between the two and Sandra is just too good a person to go public with what an ass he's being.

    The woman has no legal right at all to see the child. I'm sure Jesse nor the child's mother were making it easy for her to stay in touch with Sunny.

  38. 38

    No question, it is wrong. The girl is a young child and totally innocent. I kept in touch with my ex only for the sake and happiness of my child … of course Sunny not being hers makes a difference I suppose. It's an awful situation for that little girl.

  39. 39

    I don't agree with Geat Real at all. Perez keeps it real while he is compassionate and only seems to make his own comments on the really important stuff, someone infringing on equality rights, etc. I love him and visit his site daily! I feel bad for Sunny but understand why Sandra had to do this, it's hard enough to get over an ex that treated you poorly when you continue to see them and hear about them, I prefer to forget they exist!

  40. 40

    I am so sorry for Sunny. Children do not understand what is going on in adult affairs and most likely feels she did something wrong and is being punished by not seeing Sandra. I also think it's despicable that her mother, Janine Lindemulder, who seemingly did everything she could to try and keep Sandra away from Sunny is now giving her sympathetic opinion on the issue. Poor kid was just born 'under a bad sign' as the old saying goes.

  41. 41

    I think it's completely irresponsible for an adult to treat a child as "former step-daughter". she got married to a man with a small daughter, emotionally, she became a mother to that daughter. and now that she has an x-husband she treats a child as x-daughter???? completely disgusting!!!

  42. 42

    ugh! people dont understand you cant have relationships with the children and not the parents "aka" the ex-husband…i cant say i blame her i wouldnt want to deal with jesse either if you want to blame someone blame him he is the one who messed up not sandy

  43. 43

    While I understand her motives, she did everything she could to tear that child away from her birth mother and to attach her to herself. Now that she doesn't want the father anymore she's shedding the kid like old clothes too. Only children aren't clothes to shed them when they stop being comfortable.

    Its sad but I totally understand Sandra's actions. JJ didnt respect Sandra as a parent he brought Kat into his family not caring how it would affect the family and comprimising their privacy. Another reason is probably that Sandra realized that Sunny was going to be confused with all the mother figures in her life. So she walked away in order for Kat to bond with Sunny. Plus i'm sure JJ was using Sunny as an emotional tool to be connected to Sandra.

    Also Sunny has her mother and father (as bad as they may be they are still her parents) Louis on the other hand, has Sandra as his only parent (something SB did not plan). So Sandra has to concentrate on Louis.

    her trying to remain in the girls life was as impossible in the long run as it was altruistic.
    kudos for her good thoughts and efforts
    but practicality/awkwardness after a divorce trumps that

  46. 46

    wouldn't be surprised that Sandra was slowly distancing herself from the child (for the good of the child) after the announcement of Jesse's engagement
    once married , the girl would have had a new step-mother and it would have all started getting very confusing for the girl
    wouldn't be surprised if a child psychologist recommended it even, to have a smooth transition to the new family dynamic
    and Sandra probably didn't want to interfere with the new relationship she'd have with Jesse's new wife
    how was she to know that the wedding wouldn't happen - and to get close to the girl again only to have to distance herself again in the future when he does marry is cruel to the child
    so as hard as it is
    Sandra is doing the right thing

    i think its so funny that people are actually acting like they know these people and they know how they feel and what they think.

    Sandra is not trying to hurt Jesse! Sandra is not trying to hurt Sunny! Sunny has a mother and father and it might be very unhealthy and confusing for Sunny to have Sandra in her life at this time. Perhaps, when Sunny is older, she and Sandra can become close again. For them to have a close personal relationship at the point in time would be awkward to say the least! Everybody, including Sunny, would wonder if she was being used as a pawn in Jesse's master plan to get Sandra back into his life. In the meantime, Sandra has to take care of Louis and her career and find herself a real man who will take care of her and "have her back!"
