Splitsville- population Jesse James and Kat Von D

Recommended Posts

Hope they haven't yet sent out save-the-date cards!

Six months after announcing their engagement, Kat von D and Jesse James have called it quits.

Breaking the news on her Twitter page late Monday, L.A. Ink tattoo artist von D, 29, offered a short statement out of respect for her former fiance.

"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," von D (real name: Katherine von Drachenberg) blogged.

Engaged since January, von D and James, 41, first stepped out as a couple in August 2010: making out at a Las Vegas museum exhibit and then holding hands in Fredericksburg, Texas.

In a promo that began airing earlier this month for her TLC series, L.A. Ink, von D gushed about her then-fiance. "I feel like I'm the luckiest girl," she said in the clip. "I don't care what anybody thinks."

This would have been the second marriage for von D and the fourth marriage for James, whose exes include Karla James, porn actress Janine Lindemulder and, most famously, Sandra Bullock.

James' six-year marriage to Bullock famously ended with the revelation of his affair with numerous women -- including Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, a stripper with a similar plethora of tattoos.

Is it bad taste to note that this happens the same time as season premiere of LA INK?

*pouts* Whatever happened to true love?

Also:

Is Kat Von D even considered a good tattooist, anymore.....if ever?

This is a bitch that deserves to get her heart smashed again and again after what she did to her first husband, Oliver.

As far as celebrity relationships go my thoughts have always been WHO THE FUCK CARES. I don't know these people and I don't watch t.v. so I really don't care who they are fucking or marrying or dating or whatever. It doesn't make any difference to my life who fucks or marries who. I don't even know who half of the people I hear about on the radio or online are.

When I first saw/heard of Kat Von D I thought wow, an attractive young woman who's a good artist maybe she'll give us heavily tattooed women a better name. How wrong I was. It's too bad what happens when young people get famous, then rich, then acquire a drug/drinking/sex addiction. Now she's just out there making it worst for women like me who haven't slept with the entire tattoo/music community.

In my opinion, she's not a shitty tattooer, but she's no where near as good as the credit she gets. She does very nice black and grey work but Tim Hendrix does and always will do it way better than her.

Some one asked me after I started my second half sleeve and my leg at the same time if I was trying to be the next Kat (I draw tattoos for friends but do not tattoo) Unfortunately my temper got the better of their face with my fist.

Kat Von D Gets Jesse James' Face Tattooed

celebs: Jesse James | Kat Von D

Creepy, and permanent!

TLC File this under Bad Ideas: Before she called off her wedding to Jesse "America's Sweetheart" James, Kat Von D decided to get a tattoo of HIS FACE underneath her left armpit.

The tattoo artist with the slacker-girl voice debuts her James homage -- a recreation of his fifth-grade photo -- on Thursday's premiere of "LA: Ink" on TLC. She freaks out while revealing the love tat to James, who seems pleasantly surprised but not overwhelmingly overjoyed. "You're crazy," he says, sounding like an awkward-and-screechy "Beavis and Butt-head." Then he kisses Von D and says, "I love you."

To which Von D responds: "I thought you were gonna tell me you're breaking up with me. Just kidding! You like it? It's really hurting a lot."

Dramatic foreshadowing.
