I hate to put a dark cloud on your Monday morning, but it is with a heavy heart that I inform you Kat Von D and Jesse James have broken up…yet again. If you recall, the tattooed lovebirds reportedly called off their engagement in July and then got back together in August after Von D’s reality show L.A. Ink was canceled. Some thought the break up was all just a publicity stunt to help boost ratings for her show, but now it seems this fairy tale just isn’t meant to be. Straight from the horse’s mouth, Kat made it clear on her Facebook page on Saturday that she and James were no longer together, stating, “I am not in a relationship. And I apologize for all the ‘back and forth’ if it’s caused any confusion.”
So what happened? “It was clear to me that we were just on two different paths in life,” Von D says in her post. Being in a long-distance relationship may have also been a factor for the couple, since she lives in L.A. and he remains in Texas. The tattoo artist made it clear that, “I am not in any way moving to Texas. And I am not leaving my shop here in Los Angeles, High Voltage Tattoo.” (Even in all her grieving, she still managed to plug her business. Impressive.) But despite their on-again, off-again relationship, there are no hard feelings between the two of them. Kat commented, “I wish Jesse nothing but the best in life and in love.” Stay tuned next month for another update on their relationship status.
