A devastated Sandra Bullock is hiding out at her pre-marital Hollywood Hills mansion in the wake of husband Jesse James‘ cheating scandal, RadarOnline.com has learned.
With four mistresses now public, Bullock has chosen to deal with her husband’s tawdry affairs within the confines of the luxury house she purchased in 2001.
The Oscar-winning actress has welcomed well-wishers and supporters to the home, RadarOnline.com has been told exclusively.
“She is here,” confirmed a friend who went to visit the star on Thursday.
Remarked one neighbor, who did not want to be identified: “There has been alot of activity at the house.”
“There have been a few cars going in and out of her gate and people going in there in the last few days,” the resident said.
“There has been more activity here in the last week than in the last year.”
“It’s usually very quiet here.”
On Saturday morning, Bullock’s trashcans were taken off the street by an unknown male, who refused to speak to photographers camped outside.
Bullock has not been spotted since moving out of the beachfront home she shared with James, the West Coast Chopper owner, in Sunset Beach.
Bullock bought the Hollywood three-bedroom for $1.485 million in January 2001, where she counts Cameron Diaz as one of her neighbors.
Despite marrying James, Bullock never sold her house on the A-list street, which is situated behind the famed Chateau Marmont hotel.
But she was known to stay there by herself throughout the marriage.
“She loves the house,” said a real estate insider.
“That’s why she never sold it. It’s a pretty big property and it’s private.”
The home is a 45 minute drive from Sunset Beach where Bullock once lived with James and who remains there still, raising his children.
She has not returned to the house, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
Until Tuesday, Bullock had been in her hometown of Austin, Texas, where she owns a slew of properties and businesses.
“There she was comforted by loyal family and friends who wanted to protecther, “reported another source.
Bullock flew back to California on Tuesday night, arriving at Los Angeles International Airport on an American Airlines flight from Austin around 11 PM PDT.
Bullock has remained silent during the scandal that has engulfed her marriage.
But her management has denied reports that their embattled client had shopped around for a top divorce lawyer.
That rebuttal was made soon after Michelle “Bombshell” McGee had gone public with her claims of an illicit before, but before three others mistresses had emerged.
McGee’s allegations about James were followed by a second stripper who claimed she also slept with James.
Then Brigitte Daguerre, a fetish model, surfaced.
RadarOnline.com was first to report on Thursday that a fourth mistress existed and is represented by high-powered attorney Gloria Allred, who represented Tiger Woods‘ illicit girlfriend Rachel Uchitel.
RadarOnline.com has spoken to another source who described Bullock as “devastated” – the reason she has chosen to become a recluse.
“She’s beyond upset… and she has every right to be,” the source said.
“She was on top of the world with her Oscar victory and now this. It’s such a difficult thing to deal with.”
“How can their marriage survive this?” a source asked.
While Bullock is steering away from prying eyes, mistress number three, Daguerre, is also keeping a low profile at her Huntington Beach address.
“She hasn’t been out of her home in three days,” said a source.
“Her car hasn’t moved from outside and she is refusing to come to the door.”
Daguerre’s blinds have remained closed and the only activity has been her dogs barking in the backyard.
