London: Motorcycle entrepreneur Jesse James has been awarded full custody of his seven-year-old daughter Sunny following a lengthy court dispute with ex-wife Janine Lundemulder.

The 42-year-old, who was previously married to Sandra Bullock, feels "vindicated" after a judge in California ruled that his former wife Lindemulder must enter rehab if she chooses to move to Texas to be close to her ex-husband and daughter.

"Jesse is very pleased with this decision. He feels that all along, he`s been saying what Janine needs is inpatient treatment, and until she faces up to her own issues and problems, she`ll never be able to have a good relationship with her daughter. He feels totally vindicated with what the court has decided," quoted James` lawyer, John Schilling as saying.

"If she decides not to move to Texas, she gets one weekend a month basically, with no overnights, but a total of eight to 10 hours of monitored visitation in Texas with Sunny," he added.
