And the hits just keep on coming for Jesse James. Fresh off checking into rehab and reports that estranged wife Sandra Bullock will indeed divorce him, a photo has surfaced of James in a Nazi get-up.

Us Weekly obtained the photo of James wearing a German soldier's cap, giving a "Heil, Hitler" salute. He also appears to be miming a Hitler mustache. The picture was taken in his home in 2004.

The photo comes out days after TMZ unearthed a shot of James' alleged mistress, tattoo model Michelle McGee, wearing a swastika armband at a photo shoot.

"He did it for shock value," a source tells Us Weekly.

But the magazine asks the question -- is James a neo-Nazi?

Though some have suggested that his West Coast Choppers logo resembles the Third Reich emblem, the biker is "just a history buff," an insider tells Us Weekly. "He had a stepmom whose father lost family in the camps, and they'd talk about it growing up. Jesse's not a white supremacist."

Adds another friend, "Gearheads are fascinated by war machines, including those of the Third Reich. But he's far from a neo-Nazi."
