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.

When they broke up, she said that she had no plans on getting it removed, and here’s why:
“He had a rough childhood, so to see what he’s become from there, it’s amazing. That’s why I wanted the picture of him as a child, to capture that certain innocence. It was good having him beside me while we finished. The tattoo is a way of him recognizing somebody loves him.”
Sad, right? But then she just tweeted this picture:
That’s fair, I guess. It probably would have been a better idea not to get the tattoo in the first place, or to have considered that maybe a relationship with Jesse James, a man best known in many circles for being a cheating cheater, wouldn’t end well, or, I don’t know, to not have dated him in the first place. But this is good too. It sounded like he really hurt her, and I’m sure it’s not easy having your ex’s face permanently plastered to your torso. So good on her, I guess.

19. 19 girls. It blows my mind that Jesse James can land any girls at all, let alone 19. Add on the fact that Jesse landed 19 girls within one year while also in a relationship, and consider me flabbergasted.
Never have I felt so strong about True Love, than I do today. I believe in Love more than anything else, and more than ever before.
Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.
I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.
There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better. Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible – even in the people who seem hopeless.
I still believe that, even if that change never occurs inside of him - because I see proof of change everyday – in others, and in myself.

Yeah, like an album of music. As in, Kat Von D, the musician. Which is to say, gag me with a spoon.
Here’s the little announcement from Kat:
“I’ve been passionate about music all my life. I’ve been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message. I think it’s much like tattooing or the TV show or make-up, my clothing line, fashion. All those things, they’re just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think it’s going to be one of those things.”
But what will Kat’s original tunes sound like? We can’t be sure, but she did say that her songs would be of the ”dark, more tragically romantic” variety, and she named some of her influences as Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Depeche Mode and The Cure. So basically, we’re looking to get some hot gothic mess in album form, which is, you know, fitting.
Will any of you be rushing out to purchase Kat’s record when it comes out?

Way back when this lovely couple broke up the first time, I told you guys this story about how Jesse cheated on Kat, and that’s what caused the break up. It was a long shot, I know, and the story did sound a little shady, but it looks like Jesse really was cheating. You know how we know with such certainty? Because Kat Von D said so herself!
And there you have it. Are you shocked? Appalled? Has this changed your opinion of Jesse James (haha, of course not, Kat is no Sandy B!)? Or are you just content to never hear about these two ever again?

And if you thought they were, in fact, still a couple, Miss Von D understands your confusion. She clarified the whole romantic jumble to her fans on Facebook last night:
“I am not in a relationship. And I apologize for all the ‘back and forth’ if it’s caused any confusion.”
This is the second time the inked couple has broken their engagement, and only in a matter of months.
