Jesse James has led a secret life of cheating on his wife Sandra Bullock, and now RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained emails between Jesse and mistress number 5, a sexual relationship that went from obsession to legal action.
Meet Merilee Gerth, mother of two, former employee of West Coast Choppers and mistress #5 to serial cheater Jesse. "Merilee looks like all of Jesse's other mistresses," a close friend of hers tells RadarOnline.com. "She's in her mid to late thirties, has long black hair, blue eyes, pale skin and is covered in tattoos.
"When Merilee ended her relationship with Jesse in mid-2007, he fired her so she hired Gloria Allred and sued him claiming sexual harassment," the friend said. "Merilee had irrefutable evidence of her affair with Jesse so they ended up settling out of court.” That settlement was well into six figures, the friend said.
Much like the other mistresses, Merilee was a topless dancer years ago in San Diego at a club called Pacers, her friend said.
In emails exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, Jesse's relationship with Merilee is chronicled through flirtatious (and more) correspondence with each other.
These emails, of course, could have been very valuable in a legal battle with Jesse.
On January 15, 2007 Jesse sent an email to Merilee that said: "Morning!......you look pretty Hot today......juss fyi."
Some of the more salacious emails read:

"Only a select few get to go in Jesse's office. That's where Merilee and Jesse carried on their sexual relationship," the friend tells RadarOnline.com of the West Coast Chopper owner. "Not only did he have a copy of Mein Kampf in there but he also had a Nazi uniform hanging up in his office."
As previously reported by RadarOnline.com, Jesse admitted to Sandra that he'd had affairs with seven women and is currently seeking treatment in a sex rehab center in Arizona in hopes of saving his marriage. Sandra had hired legal council to draw up divorce papers, but has yet to file them.
