Kat Von D confirms that she & Jesse James have split up again


In case you completely forgot about Kat Von D and Jesse James, Kat wants to remind you that she exists. The last time we heard from Kat and Jesse, they broke up, Kat may have banged Bam Margera, LA Ink got canceled, Kat threw several hissy fits in the press, and then Kat and Jesse got back together and their engagement was back “on”. That was mid-August, and I hadn’t really heard anything since then. But now Kat wants us to know that she’s single again. Which is probably just another ploy for attention. Here’s what she posted on her Facebook:

Hey everyone!

I’m sure this will be the most “uneventful” blog I have ever written – but its purpose is simply to answer a lot of the reoccurring questions I’ve been getting asked lately – and I’m hoping this will answer them for you :)

I think maybe the final episode of LA Ink left things a bit confusing to some. So in a nutshell here goes:

1. I am not in any way moving to Texas. I am not opening up another tattoo shop. And I am not leaving my shop here in Los Angeles, High Voltage Tattoo.

2. I am not in a relationship. (And I apologize for all the “back and forth” if it’s caused any confusion)

3. I am in no way retiring – (what does that even mean anyway???)

4. My tattoo shop is not closing, and is open for business like always! (Same goes for my art gallery, Wonderland – next door to High Voltage Tattoo.)

5. As hard as it is to sometimes let go of the things you are so accustomed to doing, I am happy to have done LA Ink, but am even more excited about new upcoming ventures – and cant wait to eventually share more about this with you all!

That’s all. I told ya it would be uneventful… ;)

[From Kat’s Facebook]

Considering this seemed to come out of nowhere, I looked around for a “reason” for Kat to make this attempt to steal the spotlight and the story. It seems that Radar had published a report in which sources claimed Kat and Jesse were over, and that’s probably why Kat “confirmed” it on her Facebook. She likes to control the story. It’s like she thinks she’s a genuine celebrity or something. Anyway, Radar’s source says: “They are done, through and through finished, split, game over. They are both confident that they won’t be giving it another go. It’s the end of the road for them. I think it just fizzled out between them. They were hot and heavy to start, but once the sexual attraction started waning there wasn’t really anything left to sustain a relationship. Also, Kat didn’t really want to relocate to Austin from LA and neither of them really had the commitment to make a long distance relationship work.” Translation: It got to be too much work trying to suck every last drop of publicity out this famewhore-y relationship.

  5. Nancy C. says:

    i love her. she is so herself. as for her reminding us that she exists — didn’t you say this was on HER facebook page. gee, guess i’m a fame whore for posting on my facebook page then.

  6. Blueflie says:

    Cheaterville has added another nugget to this story. It’s getting interesting again…..

    Famewhore fool me once, shame on you; famewhore fool me twice, shame on me.+

    Thanks for the link, Blueflie!

  8. constance says:

    hahaha! Now she’s living the typical crappy tattoo horror. I wonder if she will get idiot’s 5th grade face lasered off her armpit.


  9. Bonfire Beach says:

    @ Blueflie – Good one! So he’s diseased, too. Big surprise. He leaves all his exes with parting gifts.

  10. Chris says:

    Gee…a bad boy getting kicked out….really, I would have never guessed.

  11. DarkEmpress says:

    I simply truly love her tattoos. A lot of people claim their tattoos are art, but most of hers are. I love portraits.

  12. Mario says:

    She wanted to go to the neo nazi pot luck and he wanted to invite the KKK over for a bar-b-que, *sigh it wasn’t meant to be….

  13. Kellie says:

    lol@ Mario. I’m surprised no one has mentioned the link between his love of history *cough* anything Nazi and the fact that Sandra Bullock must have loved it too. You attract who you are.

  14. LeeLoo says:

    I like Kat. I felt like she was making an awful mistake being with Jesse. I think Jesse was a bad influence on her, she only got kinda fame whorey when she was with Jesse and Nikki Sixx. I hope Kat finds someone not famous to settle down with and she keeps doing the things she loves like her tattoos and makeup line.

  15. 4Real says:

    She sure has an odd definition of “soul mate” doesn’t she??

  16. NeNe says:

    Now, is anybody out there shocked??

  17. Jordan says:

    I’m glad they are over for good. I like her, she is a very good artist, and always seemed like a nice person in her TV show. I don’t get why to say something about your life on your Facebook page is being a famewhore. everybody does that all the time.

  18. Shannon says:

    Why is her forehead so tight and shiny? Did she get botox? She’s like 25!

  19. Jilliterate says:

    Honestly, if you watched the show, some of this stuff needed to be cleared up. The series finale was awful and confusing. It Kat having to fly back from Texas to see whatever cooked-up drama was going on in the store, saying “Gee, maybe I’ll start a shop here in Texas,” and then the screen said the following:

    It was painfully bad.

  20. GirlyGIrl says:

    Once he had read the comic book of tattoos he got bored…

  21. Jo says:

    He looks like he just crapped his pants and mommy found out about it. She still just looks like a tatted up whore. Sad sacks – they really deserved each other.

  22. Poison Ivy says:

    The wigs she is wearing are all horrible – come on you must earned racks of money with your realityshow, no need to buy your weave at the dollarstore.

    Her face is f*cked up too, went for the Micheal Jackson-makeover…

  23. nanster says:

    I had no idea they were even back together! Oh well – I guess I didn’t miss much.

  24. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    I want to confirm I still don’t care …
