TMZ had learned that the former V.P. of West Coast Choppers had arrived in court this Wednesday about to testify against Jesse James. Janine believes Merilee knows intimate details about her daughter Sunny, Jesse, Sandra, and West Coast Choppers that are very important to her custody case.
Merilee had settled a sexual harassment case against Jesse and West Coast Choppers for $725,000 back in 2007. Jesse was married to Sandra Bullock at the time. TMZ reported back in March:
The woman claimed between 2006 – 2007, Jesse James repeatedly made sexual advances, which allegedly included sexual acts.
The woman kept several suggestive emails from Jesse. In one email in 2007, which is included in the file, Jesse wrote to the woman, “Need anything before I split?” She responded, “Some Tums.” Jesse replied, “I have some special fluid that you can drink and it makes it all better ….”
And, she claims after an oral encounter with Jesse, she kept a telltale Clintonesque T-shirt.
The woman quit in 2007 and hired Gloria Allred’s law firm to represent her. No lawsuit was ever filed, but on September 27, 2007, the matter settled for $725,000.
In the settlement docs, Jesse neither admitted nor denied the allegations.
RadarOnline also reported back in March about the first woman that Jesse had settled out of court on sexual assault charges. Deann had come forward to tell Sandra Bullock how Jesse is an evil, brutal, terrible person. She worked for Jesse for ten months from 1999 to 2000 at his West Coast Choppers office in Long Beach, California. She sued him for sexual assault, sexual harassment, battery, kidnapping, and wrongful termination. They settled out of court in 2001.
Sandra Bullock hasn’t commented about her ex-husband settling out of court twice on sexual assault allegations. How could she not have known when one of those cases happened while she was married to Jesse? How didn’t the press find out that the husband of a well known Hollywood actress settled out of court on two occasions? Did Sandra also handle the press and arranged certain favors in exchange for the media’s silence? Many celebrities make deals with the press and give exclusive interviews & photo shoots in exchange for the media silence.
But the judge wouldn’t allow Merilee to testify this Wednesday after she had already arrived. People might ask why would her case matter in a child custody case. Well it does show how dangerous Jesse is around women and how he uses his money to influence the judicial system.
