Jesse James Says He Meant to Get Caught Cheating (VIDEO)

Jesse James is apparently more crafty than we thought. Sure, on the outside, it may seem that he foolishly ruined his marriage to Sandra Bullock by cheating on her with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee (among, reportedly, others). But according to the Monster Garage star, it was all part of a clever master plan to, um, destroy his life.

Speaking to Nightline during an interview that was previewed on Good Morning America on Monday, James explained,

“During the midst of it, it made me feel horrible…I knew I wanted to get caught. I know for a fact what it was… it was me trying to self-sabotage my life.”

Mission accomplished, good sir. Mission accomplished.

James goes on to whine that, though he would seem to be the bad guy in this whole thing, he’s perplexed that the public has been so quick to shift so much of the blame on him:

“I think I’m the most hated man in the world now.”

Totally; where is the blame for Sandra Bullock, for allowing herself to get cheated on like that?

Like we said, that Jesse James is one crafty fellow.
