A year ago, Jesse James was walking the most high-wattage red carpets in Hollywood, beaming as wife and 'Blind Side' star Sandra Bullock collected the biggest awards of her life. That was all before his secret infidelities became public, abruptly ending his five-year marriage to Bullock -- who's now a single mom to the adopted baby boy they'd planned on raising together.

In the months since becoming what he once called 'the most hated man in the world,' James, 41, has found love with 28-year-old 'L.A. Ink' star Kat Von D -- a love he's been very forthcoming about on Twitter this month, according to Us.

His most recent tweet to his girlfriend: "Baby? You make it so easy to do everything I can to show you how Amazing you are. I see it as clear as a bell. My other half."
