James however, was willing to share a bit more. America's bad boy spoke to PEOPLE and said, "I'm so sad because I really love her," and revealed that distance was the reason it was not working out. 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.
"I just saw them a couple nights ago together in Hollywood at The Counter and they seemed really happy," an eyewitness told RadarOnline. James was dumped by Hollywood star Sandra Bullock amid claims he had cheated on her multiple times with other women.
