While Sandra Bullock may no longer be in love with bad-boy husband Jesse James, she adored her husband's kids. That's part of the sad fall-out of her post-Oscar break-up. So today's news is not only that she has adopted a son, Louis Bardot Bullock, who she intends to raise as a single mom, but that she filed for divorce on Friday, April 23.

While Sandra Bullock may no longer be in love with bad-boy husband Jesse James, she adored her husband's kids. That's part of the sad fall-out of her post-Oscar break-up. So today's news is not only that she has adopted a son, Louis Bardot Bullock, who she intends to raise as a single mom, but that she filed for divorce on Friday, April 23.

E! Online has posted Friday's divorce filing, which includes:

There is no child under eighteen years of age or otherwise entitled to support who was born or adopted of this marriage and none is expected.

The filing went undetected because it does not spell out their names: "B.A.S." are the reverse initials of Sandra Annette Bullock, while "J.J.G." scrambles Jesse Gregory James. The filing cites "conflict of personalities" as the grounds for the divorce.

Bullock didn't deserve any of this crap. But she is a strong, resourceful and kind woman who should make a great mother. I wish her well.
