Kat Von D and Jesse James Are Dunzo

After a fairy tale year of romance, tattoos and being “connected on a whole different level,” America’s bad boy/bad girl couple Kat Von D and Jesse James are calling it quits. The couple got together last summer in the aftermath of Jesse’s catastrophic end to his marriage with Sandra Bullock, and were engaged to be married in January. The stated reason for the break-up is that Jesse’s home in Texas is too far away from Kat’s tattoo shop in LA.

“The distance between us was just too much,” James told People Magazine. “I’m so sad because I really love her.” We’d  think this could have been sorted out before getting engaged. Silly us.

As for Kat’s response, she took to her Twitter:  “I am no longer w Jesse and out of respect for him, his family and myself, that’s all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that.” And just like that, America’s scariest couple is no more.
