Jesse James is moving to Austin, Texas by the end of the month, his lawyer announced on Friday, PEOPLE reports. His ex, Sandra Bullock, has a house there as well.

His attorney John Schilling made the announcement after a court hearing in Orange Country, California for the ongoing custody dispute between James and his ex-wife Janine Lindemulder regarding their daughter Sunny.

"He intends to move at the end of the month, he's got a need to be there," Schilling told PEOPLE. When asked whether being closer to Bullock was a motivator to move, Schilling said, "I can't comment on that." He went on to say that the former reality TV star has business dealings in Austin; he owns a custom car business there called Austin Speed Shop.
