Jesse James is confident he will never cheat on fiancee Kat Von D like he did on Sandra Bullock, because their love is on a 'higher level' as they were friends before becoming a couple.

The TV mechanic Jesse James' marriage to "" star fell apart in March 2010 when his infidelities were exposed in a U.S. tabloid, just days after she thanked him for "having her back" during her Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech.

James, who is now set to wed celebrity tattoo artist , accepts he is "100 per cent to blame" for the heartbreaking betrayal, but he's adamant his new wife-to-be will never have to worry about his infidelities.

He tells CNN's ", "I'm 100 per cent to blame, I take full accountability for my actions, you know, no one forced me to do what I did."

"She (Sandra Bullock) told me before that she forgives me... but there's probably people now that I'm closer to than I ever was to her."

When asked if he was referring to his current fiancee Von D, he replies, "I think so. I think I took a look at the things I never wanted to look at before. With Kat, I have a partner and we're connected on a higher level."

And James believes he treated Bullock badly because his ego had become so inflated after landing a huge movie star as a wife.

He adds, "That's what I need to ask, was it (relationship with Bullock) me trying to be a bigshot, was it just my ego? Like, 'I'm Jesse James, I'm a bad motherf**ker and I can have a movie star for a wife.' I think a lot of that was, it was my ego and that's why I hurt her and why I didn't just leave the relationship when I should have, because my ego said I need this wife so I'm cool or so people like me or whatever. The bad recipe for anything - I think you should follow your heart and what's right for you and like Kat, we were friends for a long time, and had mutual respect, and I think that was the problem, I don't think me and Sandy were ever really friends. We met and went straight into marriage and that was that."
