Sandra Bullock has decided her marriage is over after discovering husband Jesse James cheated on her repeatedly, but she has yet to file divorce papers because she’s worried her angry husband will spill her secrets, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
It’s been three weeks since the Oscar-winning actress’ marriage blew up and she’s avoided the public and made no comment, even as her troubled husband has released statements saying he wants to save the marriage.
“The main reason Sandra has not filed divorce papers yet is because she doesn’t want to trigger Jesse into attacking her publicly and revealing her secrets,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
“Sandra is one of the most private actresses in Hollywood,” the source said. “And the last thing she wants is Jesse out there talking about her and talking about her marriage.
“She’s been worried that if she drops divorce papers on him now he’ll want revenge and will try to harm her reputation.
"His behavior is so erratic that she doesn't want to send him over the edge."
Jesse's erratic behavior has been obvious. As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Jesse checked himself into sex rehab at Sierra Tucson in Arizona hoping to prove to Sandra that he was fighting for the marriage and willing to whatever was necessary to save it. Less than a week later, Jesse left rehab after Sandra wouldn’t take his phone call. After his short stint AWOL, Jesse is now back in rehab again.
Sandra Bullock released a statement Tuesday saying that no sex tape exists with her and Jesse James. Her statement is in response to an internet report yesterday that said one existed and then described it in graphic detail. RadarOnline.com has not seen any evidence of that tape.
But RadarOnline.com has learned that James made many sex tapes with OTHER women as he cheated throughout his marriage to Bullock.
Jesse’s fascination with Nazi memorabilia and his lifestyle in general has always seemed at odds with Sandra’s image as Miss Congeniality. The situation has left many people wondering what Sandra and Jesse have in common and Sandra has preferred to keep the details of their marriage private.
A nasty public divorce is the last thing Sandra wants and that is why she hasn’t dropped divorce papers on Jesse so far.
"Sandra is a very private person and always has been,” the source said. “She keeps a close group of friends that keep her secrets. She doesn't want an angry ex-husband revealing things she wants to keep private.
"During the past several weeks she’s had several phone calls with Jesse and he’s pleaded with her to stay married. But he’s also grown angry when she wouldn’t agree. And that’s what has her worried and has frozen her into inaction.
“She believes that Jesse would be so angry by divorce papers that he would destroy the privacy she’s fought so hard to maintain.”
