Michelle “Bombshell” McGee is now known as the tattoo-covered babe who had an alleged affair with Sandra Bullock’s husband Jesse James, but RadarOnline.com has learned more details about her shockingly wholesome past.
McGee grew up in the small town of Eastlake, Ohio, which is a million miles away from the fast-paced life she has embarked upon since moving to California. “Everybody here is in a total state of shock that the Michelle McGee we knew is like a totally different person to the one we are reading about and seeing photographs of today,” a former high school friend told RadarOnline.com.
“When she was at Willowick Middle School she used to play soccer and got her kicks by going skateboarding too.” McGee, who once even advertised herself on an adult video chat website, had more innocent interests as a teenager.
“As she entered high school, she continued her love of sports and was known as a sweet person who got on with everyone and wasn’t ‘boy crazy’ or anything like that,” the former friend remembered. “Michelle was an honor roll student who had mostly A and B grades and she was not one of those teenagers who went crazy and got bad grades.”
Besides being a cheerleader for the wrestling team, McGee also sang in the choir as a freshman. “Her mom ran a local beauty parlor and she would go there when she wasn’t in school. I think she was raised a Catholic, so, I don’t believe stories of her being Amish or anything like that.There are a lot of Amish people in Ohio but they are based 40 miles away from where she grew-up and they have no churches in this area either.”
According to the friend, Michelle’s mom moved to California with her to start a business. “That didn’t work out and she moved back to Ohio recently as a result.”
As the fallout from her alleged affair with James continues to build, those who knew her in Ohio are baffled by the change. “When we are seeing these images of her now and reading the stories of her and Jesse James it is like a totally different person from the one we knew as a normal Ohio teenager.”
