Janine Lindemulder and Jesse James in Custody BattleThe ex-wife of Jesse James is readying a legal ploy to regain custody of the pair's daughter now that the reality star is engulfed in a sex scandal that has reportedly damaged his marriage to Sandra Bullock. TMZ is reporting that Janine Lindemulder has filed legal papers in the ongoing custody case regarding six-year-old Sunny.

The child currently lives with James and Bullock, who has embraced her role as step-mother to her husband's three children. James was granted full custody of Sunny after Lindemulder, a former porn actress, was convicted and jailed for tax evasion last year. She currently lives in an Oregon halfway house.
