Jesse James addresses Nazi photos in another 'Nightline' teaser

Posted on

Good Morning America has released additional footage of Jesse James’ upcoming Nightline interview, which will be aired tonight at 11:35 p.m. In the promo — embedded below — James talks about the photo of him wearing a Nazi hat. Says James: “[I’m] dealing with losing my marriage and my son and embarrassing everyone and decimating my life, but to be called a racist on top of that is — it, like, it makes me really sad seeing the photo and the way I look. I don’t even remember taking the photo. But it was just — I can tell by the look on my face it was a joke. That was funny then, probably for a minute. But then looking at it in the context of now and my life, it’s not funny.”

James also discusses losing adopted son Louis. (Bullock — who James said suspected him of having affairs — will have custody, and Louis will have her last name.) “It made me sad,” James says. “But I realized why things have to be done in a certain way…. To see her in the role of mother is one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever seen.”

Are you tuning in tonight? Or have you seen enough with all the promos that have surfaced in the past week?
