Tattooed couple Jesse James and Kat Von D have called off their engagement and broken up, according to PEOPLE. James is also the ex-husband of Sandra Bullock; he famously cheated on her despite her gushing statements of her love for him during her awards season run in 2010.
So what drove James and Von D apart? Cheating? Nope. Turns out it was the distance.
"I'm so sad because I really love her," James told PEOPLE. "The distance between us was just too much." The couple began dating last year and became engaged in January and were planning a summer wedding but those plans are kaput.
They were commuting between Los Angeles, where Von D shoots her reality show, and James's home outside of Austin, Texas, where he lives with his kids, Chandler, 16, Jesse Jr., 14, and Sunny, 7. James moved to Austin after he split with Bullock, reportedly to be closer to her because of her relationships with his kids.
Kat Von D, who is a famed tattoo artist, also took to Twitter to address the split. She posted this unedited tweet: "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."
We hope the former couple gets through the split in the easiest way possible.
Who should Jesse James date next? Is Sandra Bullock having the last laugh?
