We heard it from Kat Von D herself when she took to Twitter to confirm that she and Jesse James are no longer an item.

The couple, who were set to marry this year, got together following James’s messy divorce from Sandra Bullock.

In January, the two announced their engagement.

Only last month the couple denied reports they had split and confirmed that they would still be getting married.

I guess this wasn’t the case though.

A source told the celebrity website: ‘ just saw them a couple nights ago together in Hollywood at The Counter and they seemed really happy.’

James was dumped by Hollywood star Sandra Bullock after he had cheated on her multiple times with other women.

He is yet to comment on his split from Kat.

Von D also sent a message to James’s daughter Chandler on Twitter, writing:  ‘Kisses to you both.’
