Kat Von D announced on Twitter this week that she’s called off her enagement to Deadmau5 because I guess he cheated on her? Or so she claimed on Twitter. Well, Deadmau5 has now made his own statement – on Facebook, naturally – saying that he was never unfaithful to his former fiancée and in fact only “had relations” with another woman during a period in which they had broken up. That’s right – Deadmau5 played the Ross Gellar “We were on a break!” card.
From Joel’s (LOL) Facebook:
All i am saying on the matter:
Kat and I split in November and I moved back home to Toronto. During this time, while we were broken up, I did have relations with another woman. Following that, Kat and I reconciled and I acknowledged being intimate with another person while we were estranged.
We did move past those issues and I proposed to Kat in mid- December. At the end of June, it was clear that the relationship was not working and we mutually ended the engagement. I was not, at any point, unfaithful to Kat during our time together.
I don’t wish to go tit for tat with these kinds of pronouncements and don’t expect to comment further, but I do believe that those who have expressed concern deserve a more complete understanding of what transpired.
Hmm, not sure how I feel about that. They weren’t broken up all that long, and if you really love someone, the last thing you want to do after you’ve broken out is go out and fuck someone else. I mean, I know people do “rebounds” or whatever and the human psyche is delicate and strange, but come on. Maybe he’s telling the truth, but when you’re dealing with a woman who has been cheated on before, shit like that will get picked up on QUICK.
Ah well, fun while it lasted, I suppose?

Kat Von D just can’t catch a break, can she? First, she’s dumb enough to get with Jesse James besides knowing he was incapable of being faithful. Then she shacks up with Deadmau5 who has a dumb name, thinks proposing on Twitter is romantic and… is also a dirty cheater, apparently. You know what that means: no mermaid wedding! :(
Of course, we found all this out on Twitter (where else?) when Kat started airing Deadmau5 out yesterday (Wednesday) morning:
Man, I'm a fool.

Cheating on your loved one is the most hurtful thing one could do. I hate to have to admit, that this relationship is indeed over.

Onwards and upwards.

Well… okay. Can’t really say anything about that besides: girl, you need to stop with these nasty ass bros. You’re a boss tattoo artist and your make-up line is far better than I’d like to admit. You put eyeliner on better than anyone I’ve ever seen (LOL)! Wise up.

Kat Von D and Deadmau5 announced their engagement in December when he proposed on Twitter (what is this world?) after roughly 4 months of dating (and a break-up inbetween). Aw, true love. Of course, you can’t expect two freaks to walk down the aisle in any traditional way, so cue the HP Lovecraft references and the “underwater-themed” shindig!
On Aug. 10, the couple will marry in an “underwater-themed” ceremony before 200 friends and family in Los Angeles, the tattoo artist tells PEOPLE.
Drawing from their mutual love for H.P. Lovecraft’s short story “The Call of Cthulhu,” about a character that is half-man, half-octopus, Von D assures PEOPLE that she and the electronic musician’s ceremony will be “the furthest thing from traditional.”
Previously engaged to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James, who married drag racer Alexis DeJoria in March, Von D will have a big day that will include everything from various blue- and green-colored food to performers dressed as mermaids.
And her dress will fit the part too!
“It will have a sleek silhouette and include hints of iridescent teals, blues and deep violet ombré gradients,” explains Von D, who has called upon Falguni and Shane Peacock to make the gown, which Deadmau5 is helping design. “I didn’t know the dress was supposed to be a surprise,” she adds.
Kat also said that being with Deadmau5 (I’m sorry, “Joel”) is the only thing that “feels more natural than tattooing”. LOL! She said something similar when she was f-cking Jesse James, as well, but whatever. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at this freak fest.

Deadmau5, a Canadian “electro-house producer” known for wearing a gigantic-ass mouse head, gave some words of love and encouragement for rapper Kanye West. Just kidding he said, “I f-cking hate him.” He didn’t say this out of the blue, though. It’s not like he went into a Starbucks and said, “I’ll have chai latte and I f-cking hate Kanye West.” Vibe Magazine asked who he would most like to work with. And like any self respecting adult, his answer was,
Anyone other than f—ing Kanye. I f—ing hate him.
Bravery level: so.
Well whatever, Mouse Head, I’m not fond of you either. You get all pissy whenever someone refers to you as a “DJ” while acting like what you do and make is like John Lennon 2013. How is what you do that different from being a DJ? And what’s wrong with DJs? In 2008 in an interview with Irish Daily Star he said,
It puts me to f-cking sleep, to be quite honest; I don’t really see the technical merit in playing two songs at the same speed together and it bores me to f-cking tears and hopefully, with all due respect to the DJ type that will f-cking go the way of the dinosaur, I’d like them to dis-a-f-cking-ppear! [And then here he called them a very bad word.]
Please tell me more, from inside of your giant mouse head. Also you’re engaged to Kat Von D, who is bad on so many levels she’s like a dilapidated shopping mall. Remember when he proposed to her on Twitter? That has nothing to do with anything, I just like reminding people about that.
I understand why you wouldn’t like Kanye West — you’re not the first — but dude, don’t be a dick. Kanye is talented and super successful and a huge name in the industry and you’re wearing a f-cking mouse head, Joel.

From Us Weekly:
“Tonight, Joel put a ring on my finger — Too taken aback by its beauty and its meaning to post a pic right now,” the L.A. Ink star tweeted. But soon after that she wrote, “Doesn’t get anymore official,” and included a photo of her new ring. Two small skulls sit on either side of the black diamond, and the double band features smaller black stones.
“The biggest thank you to The Great Frog London for handcrafting the most important ring I will ever wear,” Kat Von D added.
Deadmau5 (real name: Joel Zimmerman), 31, celebrated the holidays with Kat Von D, 30, in his native Canada. The on-again-off-again couple stepped out together in Vancouver Dec. 27 holding hands, and showing off the engagement ring. The bride-to-be had a smile on her face as she held up her ring finger for photographers.
You know, all skulls and what not aside (not that there’s anything particularly wrong with the skull motif—it’s just not my thing), it’s a pretty nice ring. I’m sure lots of African people and their elephants probably had to die for it or whatever, but hey, a black diamond. Pretty nice, right? Pretty nice.

All right, this is a whole lot of story, but I promise it’s totally worth it. Just stick with me, ok?
So Kat Von D, right? We all know about Kat Von D. Except you might not know that she’s been dating Deadmau5, that DJ who is best known here at Evil Beet for talking shit about Madonna. They started dating in September, and now they’re engaged. But it’s all the stuff in between that’s really special.
First of all, they broke up last month. So they met in September, then started dating, things were cool in October, then they broke up in November. Here’s what Kat tweeted about it:
Man.. Can’t say I didn’t give it my best.
Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. #lessonlearned
Now, we can get all of the “I told you so’s” outta the way… And move on.
Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together.
And Deadmau5 tweeted this stuff:
Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on
I guess im not cut out for relationships right now. and that’s all i really want to dwell on it right now.
I’ll figure it out. no hard feelings.
it happened too fast, i lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place that im having difficulty with. she deserves someone stronger.
All those tweets happened on November 10th, and I’m not exactly sure when they got back together, but Deadmau5 was tweeting personal pictures of her again by November 17th. So he cheated on her (my guess – that’s what it sounds like, right?), and a week later they’re back together, and a month later they’re engaged. Awesome.
And here’s the really awesome part: the proposal. I don’t have to just describe it to you, you can see it yourself!
I can’t wait for Christmas so…. Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?
Yep. Deadmau5 proposed to Kat Von D via Twitter. And just for those of you who think you can’t propose without a ring, he had that issue covered too:
Kat said yes, also on Twitter:
Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!
See? You can’t even make this stuff up. Well, you could, but no one would believe you because it’s so dumb.
