After her split from Jesse James earlier this year, Sandra Bullock has finalized her divorce from her husband of nearly five years. According to UsMagazine.com, the pair filed sealed papers last week in Texas to finalize their divorce.
The papers were filed in Travis County Court in Austin, where Bullock currently lives and where James reportedly plans to move to be near his ex-wife, who is close with his three children from previous relationships. TMZ reports that in original documents filed on April 23, Bullock claimed that her marriage to James “has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.” She can now continue adopting her son, Louis, as a single parent.
The news comes hot on the heels of several high-profile appearances by Bullock. She appeared at Spike’s Guys Choice Awards , the MTV Movie Awards and just last week at the star-studded Nashville Rising benefit show.
Back in April when Bullock sat down with People to talk about her split from James, she said that she was now focused on raising her son and that her relationship with her future ex-husband is “a different one. A bittersweet one. One of new understanding. One of support for his recovery. One that changed my life.”
Though she is adopting Louis as a single parent, she said she hopes that he can still have a great dad like she’s seen James be to his own three kids. “I really don’t know how our paths will intersect in the future,” she said.
