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."

Kat Von D and Jesse James are still an item. Despite rumors of a split, they are very much together ... and planning to get married this summer!

A report in this week's Life & Style strongly insinuated that Kat and Jesse went their separate ways. The couple says that's not remotely true.

A fan of Kat's Tweeted to the LA Ink star, "according to tabloids you and Jesse split! Tabloids are so silly." Von D's response: "ha! Silly is correct!"

Jesse too shot down the rumors on Thursday.

"That is absolutely not true," he told People magazine of the breakup rumors. "We're still going strong. Things are completely good with us."

Moreover, Jesse says they will get married this summer. James got engaged to Von D in January following a scandalous split with Sandra Bullock.

"That day can't come soon enough," Jesse said.

Despite his track record, he says the future is bright. The will-be bride loves him for him ... and Kat's better in bed than Sandra, to boot.

Jesse James is singing the praises of his fiancee ... which is nice.

Except for the fact that it's sort of at the expense of his ex-wife. Guess he was serious when he said he's done worrying about Sandra Bullock.

Set to wed Kat Von D this year, in what will be his fourth marriage, James isn't afraid to compare his future wife to his scorned, former spouse.

In an interview on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show Thursday, James was asked: "So who's more fun in bed? Sandra Bullock or Kat Von D?"

"That one's an easy no-brainer," James replied.

"Kat von D?" Stern asked. "Yes, sir. 100 percent. She's a vixen," James said of Kat. "The way she gets in my head and how she makes me feel."

"It's a mental thing," James gushed of sex with his bride-to-be, who stars on TLC's LA Ink. "We're just connected on a whole different level."

James freely admits that he betrayed Sandra Bullock, but confessed to Stern that he never felt all that secure with the Oscar winner at all.

The engagement of Jesse James and Kat Von D surprised many. If reports that they are tying the knot within a month are true, that should do the same.

"Jesse and Kat don't see any reason why they should wait to trade vows," a source said. "They are madly in love and want to make everything official."

According to the source, Jesse James and Kat Von D have already started planning their wedding, which will be small and happen outside of California.

INKED: Jesse and Kat can't wait to make it official.

Don't expect an over-the-top Hollywood wedding for the twosome, which should come as no surprise considering their unexpected whirlwind relationship.

The two became a couple in September, shortly after his divorce from Sandra Bullock, who he informed prior to going public with his engagement to Kat.

The divorce - James' third - with Bullock happened after he was caught cheating on Sandra with many women, most notably Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

Hopefully the fourth time's the charm.

Fourth time's the charm? Jesse James and Kat Von D just announced they are engaged! Congratulations to the motorcycle guru and the tattoo artist!

James, who divorced Sandra Bullock last year after being embroiled in an epic sex scandal involving Michelle McGee and others, confirmed the news.

"You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend," James tells People.

The much-maligned James went on to praise Kat as "An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs."

"I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description," James adds. "I'm so honored she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!"

James began dating Kat Von D this summer, following the collapse of his marriage to Bullock and her breakup with boyfriend Nikki Sixx.

"There is no one else for me. He's the one," The LA Ink said.

Proving that their relationship is still going strong, or is going strong again after their rumored breakup, Kat Von D Tweeted proof of her love for Jesse James.

See below. They appear to be locked in a passionate kiss.

Jesse James and Kat Von D started dating in August, after he finalized his divorce with Sandra Bullock, but hit some bumps in the road late last year.

Nice to see that tatted couple is back in full effect.

During their rumored split, Kat was rumored to have reconciled with ex Nikki Sixx, who briefly dated Denise Richards in recent weeks as well. It's a crazy world.

James has kept a low profile since his affair with Michelle McGee (who was recently linked to Charlie Sheen) blew the lid off his double life in March of last year.

It's all good now, though. They recently took a trip together to visit the mother of his daughter Sunny, Jamie Lindemulder. Sunny turned seven on New Year's Day.

Kat Von D's life just went up in smoke.

The outspoken tattoo artist is mourning the loss of her cat Valentine, whom she lost in a house fire. "R.I.P. my little Valentine," she tweeted Sunday.

That's so sad, not to mention scary. The L.A. Fire department was called and arrived at 11:23 p.m. Sunday to battle what was a very strong blaze.

Kat Von D Fire

The cause of Kat Von D's house fire is still under investigation.

"Fire fighters encountered heavy fire with extreme smoke but they were able to knock down the fire," the captain said. "There was no one home."

"My house burned down last night with my cat inside," Von D, who has been dating Jesse James since August, explained early Monday morning.

"Finally get to sleep away the rest of today. Hope tomorrow is gentler," the L.A. Ink star said. "To gain everything, you must lose everything."

Good to see she's staying strong through this.

It looked like it was over, with Nikki Sixx and long-distance relationships to blame. But Jesse James and Kat Von D appeared awfully cozy at lunch Saturday.

The couple turned up at the El Compadre Mexican restaurant in West Hollywood, where they chatted and kissed at their table. So much for that ugly split.

It was the first public outing for the motorcycle mogul and the L.A. Ink star since split rumors started flying over her getting back together with Nikki Sixx.

The love life of Jesse James is hard to follow.

Kat has reportedly been unhappy about James' move to Austin, so that his kids can remain close to his ex-wife and their former stepmother, Sandra Bullock.

She's been losing patience with their "weekend fly-back-and-forth relationship" and reports say she ended it, officially or not, by getting back with Sixx.

Maybe Jesse didn't get the memo.

Witnesses at El Compadre said the couple appeared to be in good spirits, polishing off a shared cheese enchilada, leaving a generous tip and peacing out.

As we hinted earlier this week, Jesse James and Kat Von D were having problems. Now it looks like those problems have led to a full-blown breakup.

Blame Nikki Sixx and plain old geography. Long distance NEVER works.

Here's the latest: Kat Von D, the heavily-tattooed L.A. Ink star, dumped JJ and went back to Motley Crue rocker Sixx, her ex. She and Jesse were fizzling, so that's not shocking. What is surprising is the feud between Kat and ... TLC.

For Kat Von D, it's out with the old, in with ... the older.

While filming the current season of L.A. Ink, Kat was dating Jesse James and during that courtship, producers shot footage of her trash talking ex Nikki.

They even went as far as editing an episode, which featured a "Nikki vs. Jesse" theme, posing a potentially awkward sitch for Kat. Her solution? SUE!

According to reports, Kat's "freaked out" and demanding producers cut the footage, lest she take legal action and halt Ink's production immediately.

How bad was her trash talking? We'll never know, since Kat got her way and the material was nixed! Too bad, that would have been really awkward.

In any case, Jesse's out, Nikki's in. You may now return to your lives.
