Jesse James and Kat Von D called off their engagement and the pair has officially parted ways. Apparently, the commute between L.A., where Von D shoots her reality show, and James’s home outside of Austin, Tex. proved to be too much for the pair to handle. In a statement James commented, “I’m so sad because I really love her…the distance between us was just too much.” The LA Ink star herself also confirmed the break up via Twitter stating, “I am no longer w Jesse and out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that.
The couple became engaged this past January and had been planning a summer wedding around the one-year anniversary of when they started dating. This would have been the second marriage for Von D and the fourth marriage for James, whose exes include Karla James, porn actress Janine Lindemulder, and Sandra Bullock. Apparently Bullock didn’t have enough tattoos though, so the marriage ended after six years when his secret affairs were uncovered. If he left the lovely, talented Sandra for Von D, I’m almost scared to see who his next mistress will be.
