Kat Von D, Jesse James break off their engagement




Just in time for the season premiere of L.A. Ink on Thursday, lovebirds Kat Von D and Jesse James have gone their separate ways. And here we thought a bipolar tattoo artist and a philanderer with a fetish for neo-Nazi strippers would have been together for life.

"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," Kat tweeted via @thekatvond.  The couple got engaged in January and planned to marry this summer.

The 42-year-old motorcycle builder, however, didn't respect his former fiancee's wishes to not share any more, though. "I'm so sad because I really love her," he told People. "The distance between us was just too much." What, like, literally? As in, the distance between L.A. and Austin, Texas? Or the distance between a reality show star with daddy issues and an overexposed ne'er-do-well from Long Beach who cheated on Sandra Bullock? Because you'd think they'd have plenty of common ground.
