Amidst reports that Sandra Bullock has put divorce proceedings from Jesse James on hold and is giving their marriage another go
, the CEO of West Coast Choppers has announced plans to move to Austin. While his attorney is telling People
he’s relocating there because of business matters, TMZ
has learned that the move has everything to do with his estranged wife.
They’re not back together
as speculated, the media outlet informs, but they’re determined to make their separation as easy as possible on the children. That is to say, James is moving to Austin because he wants to allow Sandra to continue being a part of his kids’ life, because he’s come to realize having them away from her would be more detrimental than beneficial. A reconciliation is, at this point, only in the realm of speculation, TMZ says.
“Jesse James tells TMZ he’s moving to Austin at the end of July... partly so his children can continue their relationship with Sandra Bullock. Jesse spoke with Harvey Levin this morning and said he already has a house in Austin, but needs to finish up a History Channel special with the network. Part of the special shows Jesse’s time on a kibbutz in Israel,” TMZ writes of the business that’s getting Jesse James to relocate to Austin.
“Jesse says the ‘first and foremost’ reason for moving is because his children love Sandra and want that relationship to continue. Jesse says he will continue working at West Coast Choppers part-time in Long Beach, but he will work full-time in Austin at the Austin Speed Shop. As for any future relationship with Sandra, Jesse says, ‘Whatever happens, happens.’ And Jesse tells Harvey he plans on opening a Cisco Burger in Austin – good news for Texas,” the paparazzi agency and celebrity gossip website further reports.
On the other hand, his attorney is trying to keep the rumor mill in check, even if that means keeping some things out the media. Asked by People magazine whether his client’s move to Austin at the end of the month has anything to do with Sandra, the lawyer explains that such personal matters are not to be discussed with representatives of the media.
