Sandra Bullock Has Wiped Slate Clean For New Beau Randall After Addiction History

Sandra Bullock has sparked a new romance with handsome photographer Bryan Randall, and the 51-year-old is not letting any past difficulties change her perception of the 49-year-old with whom she is clearly smitten.

However, those close to Bullock are said to have a problem with the Randall’s history and are reportedly encouraging her to tread cautiously in the new relationship. The Belfast Telegraph expands on the situation that has been reported recently across a variety of media platforms.

“[T]hings aren’t running too smoothly thanks to claims Bryan previously battled a drug addiction and has been sued over unpaid child support. Despite the negative reports, Sandra is said to be looking to the future and encouraging others close to her to do the same.”

As the publication reminds, Bullock’s marriage to Jesse James ended in a troublesome and tumultuous manner, which had friends and family of the star worried that she would find it difficult to ever recover. However, those close to Sandra are not completely sold on Randall. Recently, a friend of Bullock’s spoke openly, as The Beat notes, on the romance.

“Sandra and Bryan have been dating for six months and her friends are thrilled to see her so happy, but they can’t shake off their worries that she’s gone for a bad boy again. Sandra says Bryan’s a great father to Skylar. She believes everyone deserves a second chance and just wants everyone to accept him.”

Skylar is Bryan’s young daughter who the photographer fathered with his previous fiancee. Skylar’s mother, Janine, died after overdosing in 2004, and reports claim that this event encouraged Bullock’s new beau to get clean. Randall has been drug-free since 2007.

Sandra Bullock appears to be happy and continues to show affection for Randall. The actress has been working hard as both a Hollywood leading lady and mother, which also led those closest to her to believe that she wasn’t ready for love again. However, the talented star has proven that she is more than ready and has demonstrated that balance is possible, even as such a busy single mom and sought-after star for big roles.

Bullock’s latest film, which involves her in a role that was originally intended for George Clooney, Our Brand is Crisis, is soon to hit theaters, and the success of the Minions movie has been the icing on the cake for Sandra and her evidently focused and happiness-filled life at the moment.
