James, Von D Split!
It's deja vu all over again. Tattoo artist and reality star Kat Von D has gone public with her split from bad-boy biker Jesse James -- just one month after their heavily hyped reconciliation. It might have seemed like a fairy tale ending for the couple who has had their fair share of ups and downs throughout their brief, one-year relationship. But it wasn't meant to be. Von D announced the break-up from the West Coast Choppers CEO via Facebook. The 29-year-old L.A. Ink star confirmed to her fans: "I am not in a relationship. And I apologize for all the 'back and forth' if it's caused any confusion." Von D also lay any rumors to rest that she was relocating to Austin, Texas, where James currently resides. Von D posted, "I am not in any way moving to Texas. I am not opening up another tattoo shop. And I am not leaving my shop here in Los Angeles, High Voltage Tattoo." For fans who want to know what Von D WILL be doing, they'll have to follow her blog. That's because Von D no longer has her popular TLC reality show after four years of being followed by the cameras. Although she gave no specific reason for the demise of their relationship, Von D hinted to People.com that she wasn't going to settle for anything less than the best, especially when it came to how she was treated. Von D told People.com, "It was clear to me that we were just on two different paths in life. My friend put it best when he said I could never be more deserving of total, noble love. And as a woman, I think it's important to know your value and never lose sight of that.
