Jesse James scores full custody of daughter Sunny
It's not the first time that James and his ex, Janine Lindemulder, have been in court over their daughter. James and then-wife Sandra Bullock won custody of Sunny in 2009, but when the pair very publicly divorced in 2010, Lindemulder petitioned the court for custody again, and won joint legal custody while James maintained physical custody.
Now, full legal custody has been returned to James. If Lindemulder continues to live in California, she will be allowed occasional monitored visits with her daughter. However, if she chooses to relocate to Austin, Texas, where James and Sunny reside, Lindemulder will be required to undergo inpatient rehab.
"Jesse feels vindicated," James' attorney tells People Magazine. "This is what he's been claiming all along, that Janine needs therapy."
