Sandra Bullock’s secret family scandal
SANDRA’S SECRET FAMILY SCANDAL THE ACTRESS COULD LOSE ANOTHER CHILD AS A FAMILY TUG-OF-WAR THREATENS HER HAPPINESS
When Sandra Bullock’s marriage to TV star Jesse James exploded after his cheating and lies were exposed, the tragic victim of their divorce was the love rat’s then five-year-old daughter Sunny. The A-list star had adopted the young girl and loved her like her own during happier times with Jesse – only to be forced to cut all contact when they filed for divorce in 2010.
Now it seems Sandra could be about to lose another daughter, as an emotional tug-of-war over new boyfriend Bryan Randall’s child escalates. Having taken daughter Skylar Staten in as one of her own when she started dating the photographer in 2015, Sandra has formed a close bond with the 23-year-old.
However, now their relationship could be at risk as
family members related to Skylar’s mother – who died in 2007 from a heroin overdose – have made an heartbreaking plea to be reunited with the girl after years of separation.
Breaking down in tears as she speaks to New Idea, Skylar’s aunt Shelly Staten reveals that after Skylar’s mum Janine passed away, her grandmother Perri was entrusted with the then-teenager’s care before passing away just two years later.
‘That was when Bryan got involved,’ recalls Shelly. ‘No-one has heard from Skylar since... Bryan and I have always had a good relationship, even though he did not with my husband or other members of the family. He asked me very nicely not to contact [Skylar].’
Despite having very little contact with Skylar in her formative years, known former drug user Bryan, 51, whisked his daughter away from her home state of Oregon to Arizona, where she went on to attend university, before eventually moving into Sandra’s Bel Air mansion with her father while she dabbled in modelling.
‘If Sandra Bullock wants to spend her life with Bryan Randall, well then... that’s what they do. We would love to see Skylar, that’s all I can say,’ says Shelly.
‘We so much would love for her to be a part of our family. I have photos, her mum’s diaries... all those things, I would love to give to her. I don’t have Facebook, so I can’t get in touch with Skylar to tell her,’ she adds.
With Shelly claiming Bryan has angrily thwarted all attempts by other family members to
contact Skylar, the family is now pinning their hopes on Sandra’s maternal instincts.
‘Skylar’s an adult with her own life now, but Sandra treats her as one of her own. Her door is always open for Skylar,’ says a source close to the 53-yearold actress. ‘Bryan doesn’t talk much about his old life in Oregon – he’s ashamed of it, since it involves drug use and abandoning his only child – so Sandra has no idea there’s a huge family left behind who had their hearts ripped out the day he took Skylar away.’

The star has found herself yet again in the middle of a custody controversy. Sandra can’t keep her hands (and lips) off her photographer boyfriend Bryan.
