Jesse James, Kat von D deny rumors that wedding is off 

Have Kat Von D and Jesse James called off their wedding? A source told “Life&Style” the “Monster Garage” host is confiding to friends that he’s broken it off with his tattooed bride-to-be.

“That’s what he’s telling pals,” said the source. “He says there’s too much drama for him.”

But Jesse told “People” the split report is “absolutely not true,” adding that “we’re still going strong. Things are completely good with us.” (Kat chimed in: “That’s the furthest thing from the truth.”)

In fact, the celebiker revealed, they are planning a summer wedding to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the day they started dating.

That day can’t come soon enough!” Jesse enthused. “Everything is on track. I am absolutely more in love today than I was a year ago. She’s the one for me.”

One? Actually, she’ll be wife number four. But who’s counting?

Belgrade bust

Looks like that one week in rehab didn’t do the trick for Amy Winehouse. The singer has pulled out of two dates on her European tour after being booed at her premiere gig in Belgrade for — you guessed it — turning in a drunken mess of a performance.

“She sang a few strained notes, before stumbling across the stage and at one point throwing her microphone to the floor,” one BBC reporter recalled of the show. “At times she left the stage altogether — her band attempting to fill in. She was frequently booed by the crowd.”

The singer’s rep said apologetic Amy “feels that this is the right thing to do” since “she cannot perform to the best of her ability.”

What’s sad is that Amy really does have a gift. Will she ever be able to perform at the best of her ability?

Cabana drama    

Fellow Hugh Hefner ex Holly Madison has wasted no time baring her claws at his “runaway bride,” Crystal Harris.

After the “Playboy” cover girl partied in her bikini in Las Vegas on Saturday, what would have been her wedding day with Hef, Holly let her have it over Twitter.

“That’s a new low,” the former “Girl Next Door” fumed. “That’s disgusting, and whoever booked her is tacky.”

(She also told a columnist who tweeted about Crystal’s appearance, “Trust me, no one is interested in filming Crystal! She left Lifetime high and dry while filming a two-hour special [about the wedding].”)

So why would the almost-Mrs. Hefner cavort in a VIP cabana when she was supposed to have been walking down the aisle?

“I came to Vegas to hang out with my friends for the day. I wanted to get away from L.A. so I didn’t have to think about the wedding,” Crystal explained to Radar Online on Saturday, while hanging out at Wet Republic’s pool party in Sin City. “It was too close to home in L.A. I just want to relax and not think about the fact that this was my wedding day.”

In response to apparent frenemy Holly’s barbs, Crystal tweeted, “Hard times show your real friends.”

But Holly had the last word, firing back, “No, they show Hef’s real friends.”

Gotta say we’re Team Holly on this one. It’s one thing to need to “get away” from thoughts of a painful split … and another to appear at an event where you know reporters are going to ask you about it.
