Sandra Bullcok is still close to herÂ step kidsÂ from Jesse James, but now that Kat Von D is in the picture, it seems that Kat may want Sandra out of the pictures! Oh no! I don’t think that Sandra is going to walk away so easily.
Bride-to-be Kat Von D canâ€™t wait to replace Sandra Bullock â€” both as Jesse Jamesâ€™ new wife and as his kidsâ€™ new stepmom. A friend of the tattoo artist, 28, tells In Touch that Kat does not want Sandra to be a part of the picture, especially when it comes to Jesseâ€™s three children from previous marriages, Chandler, 16, Jesse Jr., 13, and Sunny, 7.
But itâ€™s unlikely Sandra will go down without a fight. During her five-year marriage to Jesse, Sandra, 46, became extremely close to the children, declaring a month before the coupleâ€™s June 2010 divorce, â€œI donâ€™t want to know what life is like without those kids.â€ And the feeling is mutual.
â€œThe children are still reeling from the loss of their adored stepmom,â€ another source close to the former couple tells In Touch. â€œTheyâ€™re not ready to accept a replacement for the woman they grew to love.â€
So, Kat has been pulling out all the stops in an effort to win them over.
â€œShe has been doing her best to make them like her,â€ says the source. â€œShe buys fun little toys for Sunny, and sheâ€™s always calling or texting Chandler and Jesse Jr.â€
However, despite Katâ€™s best efforts, they are not warming to their dadâ€™s new fiancÃ©e.
â€œIt upsets Kat that no matter how much she tries, the kids keep talking about â€˜Sandra this and Sandra that,â€™â€ says the source.
Meanwhile, â€œSandra may be done with Jesse, but she will never be done with his kids,â€ states the friend. Especially Sunny, whoâ€™s like a daughter to her. â€œSunny has already been through so much â€” her dadâ€™s custody battle with her mother [Jesseâ€™s second wife, Janine Lindemulder], then losing her as a stepmom â€” that it breaks Sandraâ€™s heart,â€ says the source. â€œShe has told Sunny she will always be there for her, and that sheâ€™s never more than a phone call away.â€
