Jesse James & Kat Von D Have Split!

July 25, 2011

Another Hollywood break-up, this time it’s Jesse James and Kat Von D who have decided to part ways. I thought these two were a perfect match, didn’t you? Ahh, but that’s Hollywood for ya!

Jesse told PEOPLE, “I’m so sad because I really love her. The distance between us was just too much.” Jesse lives outside of Austin, Texas with his three children, Chandler, Jesse Jr. and Sunny, while Kat makes her home in L.A., of course. Long distance relationships are rough. It can put a strain on any romance, no matter how in love you may be with each other. You can’t really have a relationship with someone if you’re apart more than you are together, which is more than likely what happened with Jesse and Kat.

The two became engaged earlier this year and you could tell they were very much in love. James gushed about Kat and was ‘honored that she said yes’ when he asked for her hand in marriage. Kat told PEOPLE at the time that ‘he’s the one’. When asked if she had any plans to move to Austin to be with James, she said, “If only it were that easy. Having two places we call home will be good for now. In the end, home is where the heart is, and my heart’s with him.”

Jesse and Kat started dating last summer, following his highly publicized divorce from his wife, Sandra Bullock. In fact, their wedding would have taken place this summer on the anniversary of their first date. No doubt several phone calls have been made to vendors and the like now that the wedding is off. It really is kind of sad. It seemed like they were the perfect pair. The mutual love and respect they had for each other was actually quite endearing.

Kat did confirm that they had split, announcing on Twitter, “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.”

Are you surprised that these two have broken up?
