Tattoos may be permanent, but their love was not. Kat Von D and Jesse James have broken up.

Kat relayed the news herself via Twitter: “I am no longer with Jesse, and out of respect for him, his family and myself, that’s all the info I’d like to share.”

Meanwhile, Jesse told People magazine: 

”I’m so sad because I really love her. The distance between us was just too much.”

The two were engaged to be married. In fact, there had been rumors the two had already secretly tied the knot.

Their relationship came after Jesse’s breakup from his Oscar-winning wife, Sandra Bullock. At the time, he had been vilified in the public eye due to a torrid sex scandal, but Kat gushed over her new man when the news of their relationship broke. Even back then, she mused that he was “the one.”

Last month, rumors of their split hit the internet but they denied the reports, saying their summer wedding was still on.
