Did TLC Cancel LA Ink?

Kat Von D may be able to console Kate Gosselin after their shows were both cancelled by TLC this week. The show only had four seasons, but was remarkably popular during its time on air.  According to TLC the last episode of LA Ink will air on September 15th.

Could this have something to do with Kat Von D's recent split from Sandra Bullock's ex-husband Jesse James? The pair recently called off their engagement, with Von D refusing to comment beyond acknowledging the matter.

Kat Von D took to her twitter account to deny the claims that the show was canceled, instead saying "I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being "cancelled." Thanks TLC. Regardless of everything I remain grateful."

One can only presume that if the show was canceled, it is to make way for more cupcake or bridal related programming as TLC seeks to continue it's world domination in the category of programming targeted at women who spend a great deal of time indoors.
