West Coast Choppers founder Jesse James and his fiancé LA Ink tattoo artist Kat Von D have called off the wedding. A little more than a month ago, rumors of a split started appearing all over the internet, but those reports were vociferously denied by both parties. Each admitted the whole long distance thing, he lives in Austin she in LA, was a source of frustrating, but both seemed to feel, at least at the time, that the miles were just a short-term hurdle. Apparently, it was a bigger issue than either was willing to acknowledge.
Kat Von D confirmed the break-up on her Twitter yesterday, tweeting, “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.” The family Von D’s undoubtedly referring to is James’ three children whom he lives with in Texas. All were conceived prior to the Monster Garage host’s high-profile relationship with Sandra Bullock.
In many ways, Von D and James seem to fit better on paper than he ever did with Bullock, but a sharing of interests and lifestyles does not always guarantee a successful, long-term partnership. There are a modicum of factors that go into building a life together and distance only exacerbates those problems.
