Jesse James has asked a judge to disqualify any references to his scandalous personal life in an upcoming court case over a clothing contract.
The TV mechanic is currently embroiled in a legal battle with bosses at a U.S. fashion firm, who have accused him of pulling out of a contract to produce a line of garments inspired by his workwear.
The case is about to go to trial and James wants the matter to be resolved without inferences to his private life, according to legal documents filed last week (ends16May10).
James' reputation has taken a hit since his wife Sandra Bullock walked out on him in March (10) after his infidelities were revealed in the press. He was further shamed by the release of a controversial picture which showed him posing in a military hat and apparently giving a Nazi salute.
According to TMZ.com, James has asked a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to disqualify any legal arguments involving his sexual behaviour, Bullock, or one of his alleged mistresses, Michelle 'Bombshell' MCGee.
He is also seeking to ban the word "Nazi" and the phrase "most hated man in America" if used to describe him, as well as the terms monster, skinhead, racist, homophobe, prostitute, cheating and cheater.
The Blind Side actress has since filed for divorce and is now living life as a single mum after adopting a son named Louis in January (10). James also wants to rule out any discussion of the adoption during the case.
