Jesse James and Kat Von D: What Went Wrong?

When reports that tattoo-clad couple Kat Von D and Jesse James had broken up, it was surprising: they seemed so happy together! The two were engaged in January and were planning a summer wedding, around their one-year anniversary.

Kat confirmed the news of their split via her Twitter, saying “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.”

“I’m so sad because I really love her,” Jesse told PEOPLE. “The distance between us was just too much.”

Just a couple of weeks ago, it was announced that the two were set to televise their relationship. Big mistake perhaps? Where did they go wrong?

There were countless rumors that indicated that the two were already destined for splitsville, with reports of the two breaking up since they got together right after Jesse finalized his scandalous divorce from ex-wife Sandra Bullock.

Could it be possible that Jesse had repeated his cheating ways? “I never shied away from anything I did. I took full responsibility,” he reportedly said, according to Hollywood Gossip. “I cheated on my wife. Guess what? So do millions of other men.”

Earlier in their relationship, it was reported that the two had broken up, with reports that Kat had dumped Jesse and went back to her ex, Motley Crue rocker Nikki Sixx. Could she have been the one to end the relationship with Jesse and be the one to break his heart?

Then again, just a couple of weeks ago it was revealed that Jesse and ex-wife Janine Lindemulder were involved in a messy custody battle over their daughter Sunny. How many ex-wives has Jesse had?! Maybe it’s a good thing they broke up, for Kat’s sake!

Why do you think Jesse James and Kat Von D split up? Who do you think broke it off, or do you think it was mutual?
