Resisting the urge to compare Jesse James to Tiger Woods just became much more difficult. Another woman has come forward claiming to be a onetime mistress of James. This makes the fourth woman whose name has been linked with the husband of Sandra Bullock.
What sets this woman apart from the others is that she’s lawyered up with Gloria Allred, who represented Tiger Woods’ reported mistress Rachel Uchitel.
Allred isn’t making her client’s name public, but she told RadarOnline.com, “I represent a beautiful model and businesswoman. She had a three-year intimate relationship with Jesse James.”
Allred went on to tell Radar, “He pursued her and had strong feeling for her. She is in the process of trying to decide if she will come forward.”
In the tradition of mistresses before her, this woman reportedly has plenty of electronic evidence that will allegedly prove that her relationship with James was legit. “She has proof of their relationship including hundreds of text messages, e-mails and photos,” Allred said.
Most disturbing? The lawyer claims that the relationship between her client and James was going on as Bullock picked up awards for “The Blind Side.”
“The relationship just recently ended after the scandal broke,” said Allred.
Everything fine between Sheen and ‘Men’
Reports that Charlie Sheen’s rehab and legal woes were going to lead to the cancellation of two episodes of “Two and a Half Men” are not accurate.
In fact, tentative plans to film two episodes — episodes 23 and 24 — were scrapped, but they were not a matter of contract and Sheen was not obligated to do them in the first place.
“Charlie’s deal is for a minimum of 22 episodes, which will be completed,” Stan Rosenfield, Sheen’s longtime rep said. “Nothing was cancelled. ... The other two were called bonus episodes; none contractual.”
Sheen is due back in court in July to face charges he assaulted his wife on Christmas Day 2009.
‘Dragon’ will soar to top of box office
“Alice in Wonderland” won’t post another No. 1 at the box office this weekend. Instead, expect “How to Train Your Dragon” to take its place.
Like last week’s new release “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” “Dragon” is adapted from a hugely popular kids’ book. Unlike “Wimpy Kid,” “Dragon” is in 3-D, which means the same crowds, but more money thanks to the premium on tickets.
Another popular bet for the weekend will be “Hot Tub Time Machine,” a wide release aimed at adults who will get a kick out of watching four men get drunk at a ski resort and wake up in 1986. Expect this watered-down “The Hangover” to make a decent showing.
