Reality show star Jesse James and fiancée Kat von D call off their engagement, only six months after making public the news about tying the knot. The L.A. Ink tattoo artist, tweeted the news and refused to give other details, Us Magazine reports.
Katherine von Drachenberg, best known as Kat von D, posted a message on her Twitter page in which she announced that she and fiancée Jesse James have called it quits. Posted on late Monday, her text was saying “I am no longer w Jesse”. The message also stated that she would prefer not to give details on the matter: “Out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that.”
Jesse James issued a short statement invoking the distance between them: “The distance between us was just too much.” He is living in Austin and she is living in Los Angeles. “I’m so sad because I really love her”, he added.
Last month rumors started that Jesse James and Kat von D were about to call off their engagement, but at the time both of them said the rumors aren’t true. After the Life and Style Magazine had published an article about them breaking-up, a fan tweeted a response on Kat’s page, stating that those are just silly rumors. “ha! Silly is correct!” Kat’s answer came.
On the other hand, Jesse James told People magazine that the wedding plans are still on. “We’re still going strong. Things are completely good with us”, he told the magazine and outlined that the wedding day “can’t come soon enough!”
Kat von D and Jesse James got engaged in January 2011 and came out about their relationship in August 2010. James opened up about the romance with his new love (after America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock) in May 2011, when he said that von D was the love of his life. “She loves me like no woman ever has, 100 percent. Man, she has my back”, James said during his tour for promoting his book, The Outlaw. “Not only does she love me, but she loves me so much that she was willing to subject herself to everything that I was going through”, he added.
