In November 2009, the couple reportedly entered into a custody battle with James' ex-wife and won full custody of his five year old daughter.

A little over a year before they were married, the couple were in a serious road accident when they had a head on crash with a drunken driver- both cars were totalled but thankfully no-one was hurt.

They are both co owners of 'Cisco Burgers' in Long Beach, California.

In March 2010 many women supposedly came forward stating that they had had affairs with James, while he was married to Bullock and she cancelled her promotional tour for The Blind Side as a result of these allegations.

On 19th March 2010 James made a public apology to Bullock; "The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded" and beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment. James admitted that "There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me", and asked that his wife and children one day "find it in their hearts to forgive me" for their current "pain and embarrassment." (Wikipedia) It was later revealed that he was allegedly having an affair with tattoo model Michelle McGee for 11 months during their relationship.

Following this, James' publicist told press that he had checked into a rehab clinic to try and save his marriage to Bullock, however soon after she filed for divorce and it was finalised; the reason for their split was declared as 'conflict of personalities'.

James and Bullock had begun the adoption process while they were together, however once they split Bullock carried on with the legalities and adopted her son as a single parent.
