OscarÂ® golden girl Sandra Bullock has reportedly packed up and left the home she shared with her husband Jesse James, according to People magazine.
Bullock's bold move came following revelations that James allegedly had an affair with a tattoo model, leaving Bullock and the entire nation blindsided. James has just issued an apology admitting to infidelity. He says, "There is only one person to blame for this situation and that is me. I deserve everything bad that is coming my way."
New details are emerging about James's relationship with the ink-covered brunette.
Her name is Michelle McGee. She calls herself "bombshell." The 32-year-old told In Touch Weekly that she had a steamy 11-month affair with James while Bullock was in Atlanta filming The Blind Side.
McGee says it started when she e-mailed James on Facebook, hoping to become a model for his motorcycle catalogue. She was surprised when James responded personally, with this message: "Do you want to hang?"
She claims James invited her over for a late-night photo shoot at his garage, the West Coast Choppers shop, which was featured on his reality show Monster Garage.
She told In Touch he brought her into his private office to "watch movies." They had sex that night and had "wild sex" for the next five weeks.
"This was something that was very sexual. They never went out on a date, their relationship was always kept contained in that office in his garage," In Touch Senior Editor Amy Palmer tells INSIDE EDITION.
McGee says when she asked James about his wife, he gave her the impression they were separated. "She doesn't live here," he reportedly told her. "She is filming and I can't talk about it."
In Touch has a photo purporting to show the text messages James sent to McGee in which he calls her "babe" and "hot stuff."
"He's very flirtatious, he's very loving to her, he calls her babe he's very complimentary about her eyes, so it just seems they have a very affectionate relationship," says Palmer of the texts.
It's hard to believe, but McGee grew up Amish. She left her family and the church when she was 16. "I never looked back" she says "I moved to L.A. and got tattooed."
The vixen is covered head-to-toe in tattoos, in one she calls herself "Evil," and the words "Pray for us sinners" are actually emblazoned on her forehead.
The scandal is all the more shocking because it comes at the very apex of Sandra Bullock's career.
Bullock's husband of five years, a former contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, has been at her side all through the awards season as she picked up a string of accolades for her role in The Blind Side.
Bullock spoke lovingly about her husband in interviews on Barbara Walters's recent pre-OscarÂ® special
"It's not a mistake that my work got better the minute that I met him," she told Walters.
Photographers caught up with Jesse James the day of his apology. He was still wearing his wedding ring.
