Sandra Bullock has been warned to leave her husband because he’s “an evil, brutal, terrible person.”
The “other woman” who spoke out is Deann McClung, who worked for Jesse James at West Coast Choppers in Long Beach, California and said he forced her to have sex with him.
Sandra’s marriage to Jesse James is engulfed in the growing heat of a cheating scandal, as Michelle “Bombshell” McGee charges she had an 11-month affair with Jesse. Sources tell RadarOnline.com that the sexual affair lasted approximately five weeks but McGee has text messages and RadarOnline.com uncovered Twitter messages between McGee and James.
But before McGee came forward, James was labeled a monster by McClung, who sued him for sexual harassment in 2000. In 2005, when James was dating Bullock, McClung gave an exclusive interview about her encounter with James.
She was represented by Robert Coviello and the case was settled out of court in 2001.
But in 2005 McClung spoke to a reporter and gave a blistering account of her time with James.
“Jesse James forced me to have sex with him,” she said in the interview. “He forced me to have sex, kidnapped me, locked me up and threatened me. He ruined my life.”
McClung worked for James for 10 months from 1999 to 2000 and sued him for sexual assault, battery and wrongful termination.
In court papers she said he sexually harassed her and other workers and that she told him she was not interested. In October 1999 James offered to drive her home, McClung said. Then he pulled over next to the Queen Mary hotel in Long Beach and forced her to perform oral sex on him, she told the reporter.
McGee says that she and James had sex on the Queen Mary.
“There was nothing I could do,” McClung told the reporter. “He told me, ‘You wanted this. You know you had it out for me for months.’” She says he then threatened her not to go to the police and locked her in his business, West Coast Choppers, overnight.
She says she was afraid to call police because she believed James was friends with many officers. She described another incident where James tried to force her to have sex but was interrupted when a police car drove up behind the car they were in.
McClung was fired by James in 2000. She charged in court papers: “It was clear to the plaintiff that she was being terminated because of her refusal to give in to James’ further sexual advances.”
James charged that McClung was an embezzler. But, as she notes, he never filed a police report and she says that charge was invented to discredit her.
James, in refuting McClung’s charges, said she “filed a retaliatory lawsuit which contained disturbing but completely false, accusations. The allegations in Ms. McClung’s 2000 lawsuit were utterly baseless then and are equally without merit now. Beyond that, her claims are not worthy of further comment.”
But in words that seem to take on new meaning today, Deann said in the 2005 interview: “I’m sure he has Sandra conned into thinking what a nice guy he is, but it’s all a big lie.”
