Jesse James' Stepmom: He Used The N-Word, Killed Baby Animals

After Jesse James suggested his cheating ways could be traced back to his childhood abuse at the hands of his dad during his Nightline interview, dad Larry said he was lying. Now Jesse's former stepmom, Janina James Coan, is coming forward with tales of Jesse as a young monster who tortured animals, obsessed over Hitler and hurled the n-word.

"Jesse found it fascinating that Hitler could seduce a whole country," Janina told "Then he became obsessed with Hitler's personality and the SS and he was fascinated with the Nazis. He definitely has an attraction with the power race thing."

According to Janina, Jesse's Nazi obsession extended to a fascination with Josef Mengele, a concentration camp 'Angel of Death' who would perform unimaginable experiments on captives.

"When Jesse was about 14 or 15 years old he started killing baby rats by injecting them with alcohol," she said. "He told me it's what Dr. Mengele would do."

She also told Radar that he frequently used the N-word growing up.

"I heard him use the N word a bunch of times," she said. "I don't know if I'd call Jesse a white supremacist or not but he's definitely racist. He didn't like Mexican people either. He always referred to them as wetbacks."

Janina agreed with Larry that Jesse's story of abuse are lies.

"There was NEVER abuse. Larry never even raised his voice when the kids were being rambunctious," she said.
