SPENDING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON WOMEN

Although celebrities take on roles that make them seem invincible, they are only humans who can be hurt and heartbroken when they are put in such circumstances.

For example, 56-year-old actress Bullock once found herself in an unbelievable situation with her ex-husband James and was left heartbroken.

At the time, Bullock won many awards and in most of her acceptance speeches, she would give credit to the love of her life, James, who she said helped her become better in the craft.

However, he admitted that the only regret he has is on missing out on Louis.

Things looked rosy for the former couple a few years into their marriage and Bullock helped James raise his children from his previous relationships but it would only take a while before the truth was uncovered.

In 2010, Bullock had just joined an elite class of Oscar-winning stars when she bagged an Oscar for her role in "The Blind Side," but a few months later, heartbreaking rumors of James’ affairs became public.

The situation was more heart-wrenching for Bullock whose love for privacy is well-known within the industry. As messy details of James’ affairs became public, it was clear an end had come for their marriage.

Multiple women claimed that they had an affair with the businessman spanning different times while he was still married to his famous wife. Some of the reports noted that James was often generous when it came to his mistresses.

It was claimed that he spent several hundred thousand dollars spicing things up with his ladies. In addition, he would sometimes spend outrageous amounts to get them on private jets just to visit him.

James enjoyed partying in extravagant clubs and would go as often as he could but kept this secret life of his away from Bullock until it was no longer possible to do so. Some of the women who came forward were allegedly strippers.

James later issued a public apology to his wife and kids, blaming himself for his poor decisions and disgraceful situation. He also stated that most of the allegations against him were false, but he was willing to take the blame.
