    Jesse James' Daughter Allowed Calls, Not Visits, From Porn Star Mom

    It's not exactly a loss for Jesse James—and it's not what you'd call a massive win for his porn-star ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder, either.

    At a hearing today in the contentious custody battle between Sandra Bullock's current hubby and his former missus, a judge ordered that Lindemulder be allowed to make daily phone calls to her 6-year-old daughter, Sunny, who currently resides full-time with the famous couple.

    "No visitation rights were granted at this point," Orange County Superior Court spokeswoman Carol Levitzky told E! News. James and Lindemulder, currently serving a four-month stint in a halfway house for violating her parole in a tax-evasion case, were both present for the proceedings; Bullock was not.

    However, the phone time ruling didn't come without resistance from James.

    "She texts at least twice and up to 20 times a day, demanding to talk to Sunny," he said of his ex. "But sometimes she'll go a week at a time where she doesn't make a call.

    "[Lindemulder] has no filter on what she tells [Sunny] about prison. There's a lot of conversation about prison or jail and things that I don't think a 6-year-old can comprehend or process."

    James also noted in court that while Lindemulder had fought for (and won) Christmas custody of the girl, she never materialized on the holiday, and in fact had missed four of her past five scheduled visits.

    The hearing was continued to June 14, and while the judge praised James and Lindemulder for being able to make positive progress despite the media attention, both were ordered to undergo joint counseling once a month.
