The 45-year-old star is stepmum to Janine and Jesse’s five-year-old daughter Sunny. Sandra and Jesse have applied for full custody claiming Janine, who has just been released from prison for tax evasion, an unfit mum. They have had temporary custody of the little girl while she served her six-month sentence.

“Janine should be restrained from allowing the child around pornographers, drug addicts, guns and firearms, felons and other unsafe environments,” a spokesman for Jesse said.

Although Sunny isn’t Sandra’s biological daughter, she has embraced her ready-made family with open arms. She recently gushed about her love for her step children, who include Chandler, 14 and Jesse Junior, 11, from another previous relationship of Jesse’s. “My love and my want for their future and their happiness, for their homework to be done and for them know how smart and beautiful they are is no less than if I had a child on my own,” she told Grazia magazine.

However, Janine isn’t impressed with Sandra’s presence in her daughter’s life and has hit out against the Miss. Congeniality star’s claims that she falls asleep after drug binges and leaves Sunny on her own. Talking on an American TV show, the ex-convict said, “What would give her the right to take away my daughter? I am best mother I can be.”

The ex-porn star has also claimed that she believes Sandra Bullock is only interested in the five-year-old girl because she can’t have her own children. Sandra has denied this, saying, “It could not be further from the truth.”
