Comedienne Joan Rivers has spoken out in defence of Sandra Bullock's shamed husband Jesse James, praising the TV mechanic for his kindly nature.
James has been at the centre of a public backlash following revelations he cheated on his Oscar-winning wife, who walked out on him in March (10).
He was further disgraced when a controversial picture of him wearing a military hat and giving a Nazi salute appeared in the press.
James has since spoken out alleging the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father as a youngster contributed to his bad behaviour as an adult.
Now Rivers, who appeared on U.S. reality TV show The Celebrity Apprentice with James, admits she was shocked by the cheating claims - branding the situation "insane".
She says, "Jesse should have been in therapy years ago. I’m so sad because he’s such a sweet guy. And when he starts telling you about what he came out of with his background you put two and two together. So you just hope, please God, get into therapy, which he is (doing) and try and pull your life together.
“Jesse was a darling and a gentleman. He was the one who carried your bag, he was the one who helped you up the stairs. Sweet, nice… this whole thing is just insane.”
