'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Jesse James and Kat Von D split

Yes, it's true! Another failed relationship for Jesse James. But of all the days to breakup, he does so on Sandra Bullock's birthday?! Talk about timing.

Says "Showbiz Tonight's" A.J. Hammer, ”Who could have seen that coming? But here’s the thing – is there even a chance Sandra cares? I don’t think so!”

This one is a little surprising though, since Jesse and Kat Von D did seem pretty happy together. With all of their tattoos and their reality shows, they just had so much in common.

Nevertheless, Kat confirmed the breakup last night by tweeting, “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.”

Jesse seems really upset about this too, telling People magazine, "I'm so sad because I really love her…the distance between us was just too much."

What do you think? Are you surprised that Jesse James and Kat Von D have split up? And do you think Sandra Bullock cares at all? Tell me below!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    Just saw the episode where Kat, "tats" the image of young pubescent Jesse James below her left arm pit. (Fitting location). She's showing a bit of gut around the mid-section. Could it be she's carrying Jesse spawn or is it just a sign of a weak gut and no exercise? These two losers were truly made for each other. They fit together perfectly, like garlic and onions.

    thank god, Sandra divorced this horrible man. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets another woman sooner or later.

    Tattoos are AWESOME, but I am sure she regrets getting his 4th grade portrait in her ribs! That HAD to hurt, in more ways than one, as it seems. I couldn't care less about either of them, but I wish only the best for anyone in this situation. And, yes, once a cheater, always a cheater.

    I find it pretty ironic that they split just days before the new season of LA Ink premieres. Jesse is all over the season trailer and they both chirp about how much they love each other. I'm glad she's not with him anymore. I wish she would get back together with Nikki Sixx, they seemed like a great fit.

    I never thought these two would break up, Kat Von D and Jesse James are perfect for each other, they both have the morals of an alley cat. And I'm quite sure Sandra Bullock could care less. After all Jesse did break her heart in the worse way. Once a cheater always a cheater, they can say it's due to long distance, I bet there's more to the story than Kat Von D is telling.

    A man who cheats on wife after wife is incapable of fidelity. Jesse enjoys the hunt but is not interested in keeping, just the the catching. He likely already has at least one other lover on the side. He does not value women beyond what they can do for him. He is a user and a woman would be foolish to believe that he will ever be faithful.

    I never understood how Jesse could be in "LOVE" with Sandra Bullock, cheat, and go about daily life as if nothing happened, and after the breakup, fell in "LOVE" with Kat? I think Jesse needs to re-evaluate the word "LOVE" and stop throwing it around. Although Jesse said that "distance" was the major factor, I just think he got bored as men do. LOVE is in Jesse's pants and mark my words, we'll hear of him around town or out-of-town with someone else!

    And no, I don't feel that Sandra would have a relationship with him again. I don't feel that she'll allow herself to get hurt by the same person.

    Jesse will bounce back but not bullock. Bullock is just like that sniveling, whiney anniston who will never bet over Brad and such Stupid ugly bullock will never get over Jesse.

    For the record, I find Von D obnoxious and James even more so, based on the public personae they wantonly sell, but reading everyone reply to this circus as though they're confidantes of all involved is more than a little amusing, and it also perpetuates this kind of drama. For all we know, Sandra *could have been* hell in a hand-basket to live with, James could be privately charming, and Von D might rescue babies and puppy dogs from burning buildings in Somalia. Whatever. Each is, however, an excellent artist in his and her *own* way, and no matter how they're portrayed within the sphere of public spectacle, to deem someone unworthy of happiness and joy because you disagree with their lifestyle, or because they've made mistakes, or because you think tattoos suck, or because Miss Congeniality is your favorite movie EVER–save your judgment. Bullock most likely IS the American Sweetheart she's made out to be, and James has most certainly earned his Slimeball du jour status, but do you really need to wish misery upon strangers and reduce fellow human beings to such banal stereotypes to make yourself feel better? *reads comments* Yes, I guess so. Let the spectacle continue.

    Not surprised at all what did Kat think she was special? and why would you want to get involved with someone who did what he did to sandra who 's next ? Stop saying your in love everytime you date someone what's wrong with you?

    I read in a mag about 6 weeks ago where Kats' friend predicted this! She also revealed quite a bit of instability & mini-breakups! Jesse is probably 1 of those dudes who suspects his chick is cheating because he would! An insecure bozo, in other words! It seemed to me he was trying too hard to have the Perfect Relationship with Kat, to save face for getting caught& dumpted by Sandra! It became more about the "saving of the face" than having a healthy relationship, which is probably a "no go" for him! Well, the "tabloids" should have a field day with this...for the next several months....gear up, we'll be sick of it soon!!

    I agree, tattoos are for poseurs who want to appear cool and edgy. They are so DONE now that everyone has one.
    These two are the same – has been been, wanna-be, attention wh@res who will date and do anyone that extends their 10 seconds of fame. I wish they would just go away.

    Happy Birthday Sandra! Revenge is a dish best served cold, indeed!

    Nope, not surprised at all. I think Jesse had to make it seem like he was more in love with Kat than Sandra because of all the negative publicity he was getting. Ppl really hated him for cheating on Sandra, and they should have. She was the best thing that happened to him, and probably will ever be. But, of course, he doesn't want it to seem like that, so he puts up this front. You get what you deserve!

      I got my 1st tattoo when I was 21 yrs old. That was when you had to be 21 yrs old to get one. I'm a 54 yr old female that has full sleeves and have won awards and money for some of the work I've had done on my "canvas". As a matter of fact, I got 2 more tattoos today. This is MY preference. I pay for them. Body art is BEAUTIFUL when done in good taste. They're not for everyone. I work for the Sheriff's Dept and they don't have a problem with them. I personally don't give a rat's ass what you think of tattoos. Judge not....as the old saying goes...in other words keep your opinions to yourself and get a real life. Kat von D and Jesse James / Ami James too all give tattos a bad rap. The shop I go to...Special-D-Ink" in Rosenberg, TX has a couple of the best artist around without all the baggage...that's all those shows are...drama.

At 63, I am past caring what anyone thinks, but all tattoos weren't created equal, be a real COOL GUY and don't think of this mom as a looser.

    My first instict was to crack up! Jesse made a huge show about how much more he was in love, etc... with Kat than he ever was with Sandra. That was rude to Sandra! Not that she'll care.
    My guess is- he got caught cheating again! We'll see what comes out in the tabliods.

      Jesse claimed "kat Von D was a vixen" in the sack....guess it wasn't all that good......he left riding motor cycles to riding Kat Von D....guess motorcycles were better rides.
      Kat was stupid enough to have tattooed on one side of her body a good sized portrait of Jesse James as a child.......maybe she can call Corey Miller to help her disguise it................
      Oh wait a minute, Kat Von D treated Corey Miller like SH** when he worked for Kat leaving his own Tattoo shop hours away to help Kat von D get LA Ink up & running. Kat refused to give Corey & personal time off to visit his family & business both locations hours away fm LA Ink. Yet Kat gave tattoo artist "Dan" freedom to come & go as he please to attend his band's tours.
      Corey Miller finally woke u p & quit, walking out on Kat when he realized how ungrateful she is.
      Corey Miller is a much sought after artist...I hope he continues to prosper.
      As for kat Von D.....I will no longer watch her show....maybe a few for laughs to see her drooling over Jesse James....since I know the out come is she was DUMPED..
