NEW YORK from www.cbsnews.com – Porn star Janine Lindemulder, who has been fighting a custody battle with her ex-husband, reality television star Jesse James, and his current wife, Sandra Bullock, lost another round Monday when a California court denied her request for “expanded visitation rights,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

James has had sole guardianship of the 5-year-old girl since the adult actress and director was jailed for tax evasion. Federal prosecutors on August 22, 2008 said Lindemulder, 39, of Huntington Beach, Calif., failed to pay more than $200,000 in taxes owed to the Internal Revenue Service.

As part of her plea agreement, Lindemulder admitted making a down payment on a $647,000 house in Eugene, Calif. and purchasing a new Jeep and recreational vehicle while knowing she owed the taxes.

Currently living in Hollywood, the former skin queen is scheduled to appear for a hearing next week on a “possible probation violation stemming from that sentence,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

Court documents show that Lindemulder’s weekly visitation rights are now limited to daytime hours, according to the LA paper. She asked Orange County Superior Court Commissioner Thomas H. Schulte to expand her visitation to include overnight stays, but the request was declined.

However, Lindemulder was granted one overnight visit with her daughter on Christmas Eve, despite objections from James and Bullock, according to Los Angeles CW station KTLA.

James was determined not to let his ex gain custody of their daughter, because, according to court papers, he fears his little girl would be introduced to a dangerous world if she lived with her mother.

In a statement to the court, James says, “Good cause exists for the court to conduct a review to determine if (Sunny) will be safe with (Lindemulder). She should be restrained from allowing the child around pornographers, drug addicts, guns and firearms, felons and other unsafe environments.”

Lindemulder started her film career in B movies and appeared in a soft porn film, “Caged Fury,” alongside non-porn actor Erik Estrada, according to IMDB.com.

She has posed for Playboy and Penthouse.

Since 2000, she has shifted from adult performing to directing and producing erotic films, according to IMDB.com.

Bullock, who has no biological children, recently admitted she relishes her role as stepmom to James’ three kids.

According to CBS affiliate KOIN-TV, She explained, “I may never hear that word ‘mom.’ But being a parent is not about breeding. It’s about caring.”

“When you don’t have that title, you flounder and it hurts. But this is the best test of being a parent. And I just have to keep reminding myself I don’t care what I get. I care what I give.”
