The motorcycle mogul and the "LA Ink" star, who announced their engagement in January, had reportedly been planning a summer wedding.

Distance was a factor in the breakup, James told People magazine on Tuesday.

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

Von D (whose real name is Katherine Von Drachenberg) shoots her reality show in Los Angeles, while James lives in Austin, Texas, with his three children, Chandler, 16, Jesse Jr., 14, and Sunny, 7.

Last month, James and Von D shot down speculation that they had split, calling the rumors "absolutely not true."

The pair began dating last summer, after the collapse of James' marriage to actress Sandra Bullock following revelations that he cheated on her. Their divorce was finalized in June 2010.
