Kat Von D and Jesse James broke up. Again.

The troubled, tattooed couple has called it quits once again, calling off their engagement for the second time this year, Von D revealed on Facebook.

"I am not in a relationship. (And I apologize for all the "back and forth" if it's caused any confusion)," said the star of LA Ink, which TLC broke up with recently.

The duo called off their engagement in July, for reasons still not entirely clear, only to be back on again and planning a wedding a mere month later.

Now it's off again. As for why they separated, Von D tells People: "It just became clear to me that we were just on two different paths in life."

"My friend put it best ... I am deserving of total, noble love. And as a woman, I think it's important to know your value and never lose sight of that."

So basically ... Jesse fell short of providing that?

It's not exactly far-fetched when you think about it, but did you know that Kat Von D once tattooed the Mother Monster? Well, now you do - and can watch it!

The L.A. Ink finale was last, but far more noteworthy than anything that took place on the show is this footage of Kat Von D and Lady Gaga back in 2008.

You know Gaga wasn't a global superstar just yet because she's still wearing pants (albeit metallic blue spandex ones) as she converses with the tattoo artiste:

"You're from New York, right?" Von D asks. "Yeah, I was born and raised in Manhattan, and I just moved out here," Lady Gaga replies, almost quaintly.

"I'm a singer, but I'm also a songwriter for other artists, so I've just been workin' and doing shows." We'd say it's worked out fairly well for her since.

Apparently Kat, who is responsible for some of the better known celebrity tattoos out there, did some of the roses that adorn Gaga's body. Fun fact!

Kat Von D found a nice way to cope with the cancellation of LA Ink.

She and Jesse James – who called off their engagement last month – posted on Twitter separate photos of themselves locked in embraces. James went so far as to add the caption, "para siempre" – Spanish for "forever."

Yup, Jesse James and Kat Von D are engaged again!

Kat Von D is again wearing her ring (shown earlier this year).

In an interview with People, James confirmed the rumor. The engagement is back on, and Kat Von D is once again the only girl for him, he says:

"Sometimes you are only given one chance in life. It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her."

Sounds like congratulations are in order. Again!

TLC is cleaning house this week.

First, the network announced it canceled Kate Plus 8. Now it says it will be bidding farewell to another reality star after this season: Kat Von D.

"TLC has decided that the current season of LA Ink will be its last. The network is proud of what the series accomplished in four seasons, following Kat Von D's journey as an artist from Miami to Los Angeles,” TLC said in a statement.

The Kat Von D

This has been a tough year for Kat Von D, with her house burning down, her cat dying, and her engagement to Jesse James getting called off.

The fourth season showcased Kat's relationship with Jesse James and their wedding plans, making things even more bittersweet for the artiste.

In the season premiere, the 29-year-old reality got a tattoo of Jesse James’ face. That was probably not a good sign as far as the future goes.

Michelle McGee is back, and she's dropping some bombshells on Jesse James and Kat Von D.

The face-tattooed woman who slept with James during his marriage to Sandra Bullock told a New Zealand radio station this week that she knew the moment her relationship with the biker was over: when he cried over Bullock's speech at the Oscars.

"What a croc of s--t," she said of that night. "He had crocodile tears. It was pathetic. I sat there and said, 'That guy has been lying to me this entire time.' So we've never spoke since then."

Referring to James as a "typical pig," McGee also takes exception to his labeling of his main private part as "Vanilla Gorilla." The dude is only "average," Michelle says, and she ought to know: Bombshell is in New Zealand for the Erotica Expo.

As for Kat Von D, who felt the wrath of James' cheating unit? McGee simply says "I told you so" and refers to her as "Kat Von Dude." Ouch!!!

Kat Von D is speaking out about her recent split with Jesse James and how her emotions spiraled out of control, culminating in her walking off the set of an interview with Good Day LA, then getting into a Twitter feud with its host.

This crazy week has led, at last, to a moment of clarity.

"What can I say?" the title of her latest blog post reads, regarding the Good Day LA incident. "I suck. I allowed today to get the best of me."

Days after news broke that James and Von D broke up, calling off their engagement, the LA Ink star is not saying sorry – she's "not strong enough."

"It is in my nature to admit when I'm weak," she writes.

Kat Von D is also not apologizing to – or dissing – Jesse James, to whom she got engaged last winter. "In my relationship, I had never before felt as solid and strong – even though the world said different by all the criticism," she says.

Kat Von D walked off the set of Good Day L.A. Wednesday, bailing on an interview at the last moment because she says producers went back on their word.

The LA Ink star claims she agreed to discuss her breakup with Jesse James on the condition that it wasn't mentioned by the anchor in the introduction.

According to Kat, that simple request was flat-out ignored by anchor Jeff Michael, whose introduction highlighted Kat Von D and Jesse James' breakup.

K. Von D.

Kat says she saw what was on the teleprompter before he read it, and even pulled a producer aside to have someone change the script.

Didn't happen.

Von D says she "very politely" informed them that if it wasn't changed, she wouldn't go on. They either forgot to change it or tried to call her bluff ... but she wasn't bluffing. Kat pulled a Paris Hilton and peaced out.

Later, during the show, the executive producer said Kat's only request was not to bring up Sandra Bullock or Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. Kat said only, "I have no interest in going back on, but I wish them all the best."

Tattoo artiste Kat Von D has many of her own, but we're guessing the star of TLC's L.A. Ink might like to have her most recent one back.

That's because said tattoo is of Jesse James' face.

In a sneak peek clip from the new season of LA Ink, which features Jesse prominently and premieres this Thursday, Kat decides to surprise her fiance by having a school portrait of him from the fifth grade etched permanently on her body ...

"You're crazy!" Jesse says upon seeing her new body art, before telling Kat "I love you." Kat was definitely nervous telling her man, "I thought you were going to tell me you're breaking up with me" after seeing it.

Not quite, but Jesse James and Kat Von D broke up Monday.

Distance was to blame - Jesse lives in Austin, Kat lives in L.A. - but there are also reports of another woman. Either way, let this be a cautionary tale to all of you considering having a lover's fifth grade photo tattooed on you.

The somewhat surprising breakup of Jesse James and Kat Von D was sparked by a blowout fight over another woman, according to Radar Online.

According to an eyewitness, Jesse and Kat had an argument outside of her L.A. home Monday about another woman before Kat told him to leave.

“They were outside and I could hear them fighting. Kat kept throwing some woman’s name out and saying she didn’t like him living so far away.”

“Jesse finally said, ‘Fine, f**k you!’ and sped away on his bike," the source said. "Kat sat in her Bentley with her head on the steering wheel.”

“It was clear from the tone of the conversation that Kat Von D was accusing Jesse of something with this other woman,” the eyewitness said.

“So it didn’t surprise me when I heard they’d broken up.”

For the record, this is not confirmed, so assuming Jesse cheated on Kat - while understandable - is probably premature without more details.

Jesse James and Kat Von D have broken up.

Their engagement, announced in January, will not end as planned - in a late summer wedding on the one-year anniversary of when they started dating.

The couple confirmed the split themselves.

"I am so sad because I really do love her," James, who has been married three times before, tells People. "The distance between us was just too much."

Jesse, 42, and LA Ink star were trying to commute between Los Angeles, where Kat, 29, shoots her reality show, and his home outside Austin, Texas.

He moved there with kids Chandler, 16, and Jesse Jr., 14 (from his first marriage), and Sunny, 7 (from his second marriage) in the middle of last year.

James wanted the children to remain close with his third wife, Sandra Bullock, who lives in Austin, and with whom they had a close relationship.

Von D also confirmed the split on Twitter.

"I am no longer w Jesse," she writes, "and out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I'd like to share. Thanks for respecting that."
