Did anyone see this coming?  Kat Von D and Jesse James call it quits.

Their hot and heavy relationship started shortly after James finalized his divorce with Oscar winner Sandra Bullock.  They immediately started gushing about how in love they were with one another and how this was the real thing.

The two announced their engagement in January of this year and were planning a summer wedding to mark their one year anniversary.  Unfortunately they didn't make the year mark.

Last year after James and Bullock ended their marriage, he moved to Texas to be near her.  He continues to live here with his three kids.  I guess the distance was too much.  James told People magazine:

"I'm so sad because I really love her," and "The distance between us was just too much."

There is no word on who ended the relationship but Von D did confirm the split on Twitter last night saying:

"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."

I guess having a bunch of tattoos wasn't enough to make the relationship work.  So what do you think?  Were the two really in love or was it all for publicity and attention?
