She wanted so badly to prove people wrong. Tattoo artist Kat Von D gave all of her heart to Jesse James and is now coming clean on their “toxic” relationship.
Last night Kat released a lengthy note on her Facebook page titled Thank You, Jesse James. It spoke of what went wrong in their yearlong relationship.
It starts with, “Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.”
She continued, “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 think it just made me sad today to imagine him still in that dark place — where seeking validation through the attention of women takes precedence over being a good father, a sincere friend, a better coworker, and a happy individual.”
During their relationship Von D was tagged as the woman who broke up Jesse and actress Sandra Bullock‘s marriage. It now just seems so trivial to her.
“I tried my best to go through all of this without venting, or complaining, or fueling more tabloid mumbo jumbo — but this isn’t about any of that… This is about me making peace with myself, and forgiving myself for making some bad mistakes.”
“Time is something you can never get back, and what we do with this very present moment is the most real thing we have. So if that’s the lesson Jesse forced me to face and learn by all of this, than all I can say is Thank You.”
