On Tuesday, after news of his new engagement broke (James' agent did not respond to omg!'s request for confirmation), the 43-year-old posted a photo of his bride-to-be shooting a gun on Facebook with the Arthur Rubenstein quote, "I have found that if you love life, life will love you back." Not long after, DeJoria responded to a fan's tweet that Jesse was a "stand up guy," with "Yes he is and I'm proud to be his lady!"

If James plays his cards right, it could pay off in more ways than one. His fiancée, who also has a 9-year-old daughter named Isabella, stands to inherit much of her father's $4 billion, thanks to not only Paul Mitchell, but also Patron liquor, which he also created. "Alexis has lived a good life so far and one day, when her inheritance comes through, she will be a very wealthy lady," a Radar sourced added.

In April, the "Monster Garage" star explained to omg! that he doesn't feel the negative opinion people have of him is warranted. "I think I've paid the price and then some, you know? I don't know anybody anywhere that's had to endure what I had to endure for basically infidelity. It's just the nature of my life. People always will want me sainted one minute, and strung up the next."
But time will tell if he's worthy of another chance.
Should James and DeJoria actually make it down the aisle, this will be his fourth marriage. In addition to Bullock, he was married to porn star Janine Lindemulder, with whom he has 8-year-old daughter Sunny, as well as Karla James, with whom he has daughter Chandler, 15, and son Jesse James Jr., 13.
