History of James Ford:
James developed feelings for Starr but was rejected by her devotion to Cole. To rouse jealousy in her, he accompanied her best friend (and Robert’s ex-fling), Langston to a wedding but texted Starr repeatedly - despite Cole’s warnings that they were involved. James quit seeing Langston after Robert became jealous and cautioned him sternly about his feelings for Starr and the Manning clan.
James learned the mystery visitor is his mother, Inez and that Nate is his younger brother! After a heated argument with Robert, James accepted his mother’s return and forgave her. However, when his college grant was revoked he blatantly refused her help. Starr finds him and in a compulsive frenzy, he kisses her passionately. James and Nate later share their feelings for the Manning sisters. Inez informs James later that his grant has been reinstated.
James lobbied Robert to locate Starr after becoming suspicious of Hannah. After beatings by his father, James was acquitted of his murder. He later refrained from Starr to date Michelle but learned Starr broke up with Cole.
While in a relationship with Starr, James’ ex-girlfriend Deanna shakes things up when she locates him; later he becomes jealous of Starr’s new friend, Baz after learning about their kiss. James and Starr spent the night together to seal their relationship.
After Starr receives a music recording contract with Baz, James supports her decision. James, Starr, Nate and Dani stand up against porn director Rick Powers after he forces Starr to make a raunchy video.
James learned Cole escaped prison and overheard Starr’s devotion to him. Unable to accept her love for Cole and in shock over Robert’s death, James breaks up with her.
