Jesse James Gets Custody of Daughter; Kat Von D Ditches Interview

Jordan Strauss/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Jesse James had an eventful Monday, and not just because it was the day he confirmed his split from reality TV star Kat Von D.

People magazine reports Sandra Bullock's ex was awarded sole custody of his seven-year-old daughter, Sunny, in Orange County, California on Monday.  James had been engaged in a prolonged custody battle with the child's mother, ex-wife and former porn star Janine Lindemulder.  He has a total of three children from previous relationships.

James' attorney says Lindemulder will receive monitored visitation with Sunny if she remains in California.  If she moves to Texas, where James lives, she'll have to enter inpatient rehab, according to the attorney.

And there's more bad news for Lindemulder: reports she was arrested Wednesday for harassment.

As for James' breakup with Kat Von D, it's a sore subject for the L.A. Ink star.  She ditched an interview with Good Day L.A. on Wednesday morning at the last second after the program aired a clip from her show of her getting a tattoo of James' name.

She tweeted, "Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion n respect for eachother never fails to dissapoint me."

Von D later tweeted to one of the program's hosts, Jillian Barberie, that she walked out on the interview because of the show's "disrespectful intro."  Barberie maintained on her own Twitter feed that Von D's publicist never said the hosts couldn't mention the breakup.  Barberie said there is no feud between herself and Von D.
