According to other news reports, in 2013, Jesse James also opened and owns a custom gun business called, Jesse James Firearms Unlimited. The company unveiled a 1911 pistol and an AR-15 rifle. Jesse and his ex-wife, Sandra Bullock, met in 2003 when she took her godson on a tour of the West Coast Choppers facility. They married in 2005 but soon split in 2010 after Jesse was involved in a cheating scandal. Jesse issued a public apology blaming himself for the whole situation.
