News Spotlight: Tattooed Splitsville
Some relationships people just can't wait to fail. Since Kat Von D announced her split from Jesse James last night via Twitter, all the news reporting about it has been ultra sarcastic and unsympathetic. I think it's safe to say James is the most hated person in Hollywood--well maybe after Mel Gibson.
From People: "Jesse James and Kat Von D have called off their engagement and broken up.
"I'm so sad because I really love her," James tells PEOPLE exclusively. "The distance between us was just too much."
James, 42, and the LA Ink star, 29, were engaged in January and had been planning a summer wedding around the one-year anniversary of when they started dating.
But the commute 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, proved to be too much.
Von D confirmed the split on Twitter.
"I am no longer w Jesse," she writes, "and out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I'd like to share. Thanks for respecting that.""
