LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jesse James and Kat Von D have split just six months after getting engaged.
“I am no longer w Jesse,” Kat Tweeted late Monday night.
“And out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that,” the 29-year-old reality star continued in the Tweet.
Jesse, 42, blamed problems in the former couple’s relationship on their long distance relationship – Kat shoots her TLC reality show “LA Ink” in Los Angeles, while Jesse lives near Austin, Texas with his three children.
“I’m so sad because I really love her,” Jesse told People. “The distance between us was just too much.”
The couple, who got engaged in January, previously told the mag they were planning a summer wedding.
Jesse’s engagement to Kat came less than a year after splitting with Oscar winner Sandra Bullock, following an infidelity scandal on his part.
This would have marked the fourth marriage for Jesse and the second for Kat.
