Jesse James mistress Merilee Gerth uses stained shirt as evidence
It's hard to tell with whom Jesse James is competing these days, Tiger Woods or Bill Clinton, but Slick Willy is getting an edge, thanks to word from RadarOnline that mistress No. 5, Merilee Gerth is keeping a dress covered in his DNA as proof of their affair. Does no one write love letters anymore?
“He was terrified of the emails and other evidence that she had against him,” Gerth's friend told the site about why James settled with the woman for $700,000 during a sexual harassment suit. “What he didn’t know was that she had saved a shirt that had his DNA on it from one of their sexual encounters and that was what sunk him."
That's not to say Jesse didn't try to convince wife Sandra Bullock otherwise first: “Jesse and Merilee dated for a little while years before he met Sandra, so Jess said that it was an old shirt from when they dated,” the source added. “But Merilee was able to prove by the design and make of the shirt that it was something current and didn’t exist back when they dated.”
So we're guessing it could be an Ed Hardy shirt. Then again, if there was some sort of disgusting stain on an Ed Hardy shirt, you wouldn't be able to tell.
