Jesse James does not appear to be concerned about repairing his image following cheating scandals that led to his divorce from Sandra Bullock and failed relationship with Kat Von D. On Monday’s episode of his new reality show American Chopper: The Build-Off, James referred to Bullock as “some Hollywood actress” and seemed to imply that she changed him in to a “big shot.”
“I became a big shot and married some Hollywood actress and didn’t talk to anybody anymore, so I feel bad. . . I feel obligated to reconnect with all these people and show ’em that I’m still the same fabricator motorcycle guy. I’m not what I became,” James said.
James and Bullock called it quits in March 2010 after his affairs with multiple women were revealed. In August 2010, James began dating reality star Kat Von D. The pair was engaged in January 2011. Their on-and-off relationship ended in September. Von D later revealed James had cheated on her with 19 women.
