Jesse James has been granted permission to move to Texas with his daughter Sunny, despite the youngster's mother Janine Lindemulder's attempts to block the plans.
Jesse James has been granted permission to move to Texas with his daughter.
The motorcycle entrepreneur has been handed official custody of six-year-old Sunny and is now planning to move closer to ex-wife Sandra Bullock and her seven-month-old son Louis Bardo, much to the unhappiness of ex-wife Janine Lindemulder, who had gone to court to block his plans.
Upon hearing the decision of the Orange County Court in California, Janine - who is still officially sharing custody of the youngster - broke down shouting: 'I'll move! I'll move!"
Family Court Commissioner Thomas Schulte accepted both parents loved Sunny, but was concerned about the poor decisions Janine had made in the recent past, including a jail term and subsequent four-month stint in an Oregon halfway house and a battle with prescription drugs.
Janine has been told she can have physical custody of Sunny until she starts school in Texas in September.
The former porn star admitted her daughter was excited about the impending move.
She added: "I don't want to take that away from her. I don't want the crumbs."
Sandra - who split from the 'Monster Garage' host in February following allegations of infidelity with several women - has remained close to Sunny and even cared for her while Jesse was in rehab but Janine doesn't think the actress is trying to take over her role in the youngster's life.
Speaking outside court, she said: "I don't think Sandra's trying to steal her. I would just like a little more communication mom to mom, that would be nice. Keep me in the loop."
