Sandra Bullock has not been seen in public since word broke of her husband Jesse James' alleged infidelities. That is, until Wednesdday.

Bullock was spotted in Los Angeles, a source telling People magazine that she was visiting a friend named Gabriel Brener, who heads an investment firm.

"She's not there on business," the source told the magazine. "They've been friends for decades."

Bullock has been reportedly spending much of her time in Austin, Texas, away from the prying eyes and paparazzi in Hollywood.

The 45-year-old Academy-award winning actress was said to have moved out of the home she shared with James on March 15. Reports say she has decided to divorce James. Of course, all of this is speculation because Bullock has not uttered a public word since this all began.

E! Online reports Bullock remained in seclusion Thursday, "holed up" at her Hollywood Hills home, being visited by staffers from her production company.

James has checked into a rehabilitation clinic in Arizona to work on personal issues, according to a spokesman. His reps wouldn't say whether he was being treated for a substance abuse problem or a sex addiction.
