Janine Lindemulder’s estranged husband Jeremy Aikman has told RadarOnline.com that the former porn star is ‘a good mom’ and that Jesse James persuaded him to pen his ‘poisoned letter’ to the court.
Lindemulder and James - who are battling over custody of their seven-year-old daughter Sunny - fought in Orange County Family Court on Friday about the letter which was submitted by James who claimed it showed she was an unfit mom.
After Lindemulder recently broke-up with Aikman he telephoned Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband to talk about her parenting skills.
Aikman told RadarOnline.com: “I wished that I had never made that call but Jesse persuaded me to write the letter after he told me stories about when he was with Janine.
“I had a lot of crazy feelings of pain after we split-up and I put my energy into those and sided with him which was a mistake.
“Janine is a good mom to Sunny and she is clean of drugs just now - I want to make that clear.
“I was frustrated with the situation and made a mistake which I wish I could take back now.
“I think that Janine understands why I did what I did and it looks like it did not count with the courts.
“What I said in the letter was not true and I regret it now.”
Among the false allegations were that Janine was hooked on prescription drugs and had even run her truck into a house once because she was so high.
Commissioner Schulte threw out James attempt to block Sunny’s visits with her mom after she presented an e-mail that he subsequently wrote to Janine which said that he "acted very immature and told Jesse James things about you that were not true."
A source close Lindemulder told RadarOnline.com: “It was very hurtful for Janine because the reason she split-up with Jeremy was because she put her relationship with Sunny first.
“Jesse tried to take advantage of the situation but it back-fired on him because the Commissioner ruled in Janine’s favor.”
Both Lindemulder and James are due back in court on July 12, 2010, as she fights to restore her 50-50 custody rights over Sunny.
The biker mogul is determined to re-locate to Texas with Sunny as he tries to win back Sandra Bullock.
