(Newser) – Oh, the schadenfreude: Cheater Jesse James and famously tattooed Kat Von D have broken up, thus ending the engagement that grossed out the world. "I'm so sad because I really love her," James tells People. "The distance between us was just too much." (James lives in Texas; Von D shoots her reality show in LA.) Von D confirmed the break-up 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."
