Tattoo artist Kat Von D confirmed on Twitter yesterday that she and Deadmau5 have ended their engagement because she discovered he was playing around.

Kat, who previously dumped Jesse James for similar sins, hooked up with the Canadian musician in September 2012 and accepted an engagement ring in December -- after a brief breakup a month earlier.

The always resilient tattoo artist lamented on Twitter, "Man, I'm a fool."  She didn't wallow for long, adding:

Deadmau5 referenced the change in his status with this tweet:

The musician was singing a totally different tune six months ago when he proposed to Von D on Twitter, "I can't wait for Christmas so...Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?"

Von D's claim to fame was a four season stint on the TLC reality show 'LA Ink.' The spin-off of 'Miami Ink' premiered in 2007 and ended two years ago.

kat von d and boyfriend

Former 'LA Ink' reality star Kat Von D got her first tattoo and age 14 and quit school at the age of 16 to become a tattoo artist.

She snagged the TLC series in 2007, chronicling the work at her tattoo shop High Voltage Tattoo in Los Angeles for four seasons.

The 31-year-old ink artist is engaged to Joel Zimmerman aka DJ Deadmau5, after accepting his Twitter proposal in mid-December.

Aside from her reality show success, Kat gained additional notoriety when she started dating West Coast Chopper badboy Jesse James.  She broke off their engagement in 2011 after discovering that he cheated on her with 19 other women.

Tattoo artist Kat Von D is engaged.  The reality show star accepted a marriage proposal that was delivered via Twitter by her boyfriend Deadmau5.

The Canadian music producer, aka Joel Zimmerman, posted the following on his Twitter page:

  • kat von d twitter

After his proposal was accepted, the DJ tweeted, "Holy f***ing s--t. I'm engaged and stuff! Thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else! Brb while i spend the rest of my evening with my future wife."

He still owes his fiancee a ring but he did share a photo of what she can expect:

Kat thanked her Twitter followers for their well wishes,  "Mi corazon! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiance!"

The couple hooked up in September and split for a while last month, at which time Kat tweeted,  "Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. Lesson Learned.  Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together."

They have apparently ironed out all of the kinks and it's full speed ahead for the couple.

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."

kat von d and jesse james

The on again, off again romance between tattoo artist Kat Von D and Jesse James is off yet again.  We've said this before ... it sounds like the breakup really is for good this time.

Kat took to her Facebook page late Friday night to share her latest heartbreak news with a clarification statement titled 'Odds and Ends', "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!"

jesse james and kat von d together again

Hold the presses ... there has been a reconciliation between Jesse James and Kat Von D and the engagement is back on.

The bombshell revelation came on the same day that TLC lowered the boom after four successful seasons and cancelled L.A. Ink.

Kat and Jesse hinted at their new status early in the day by posting Twitter pics featuring them engaged in loving embraces.  The couple didn't make their followers wait too long to understand what was going on.

Jesse spoke with PEOPLE and made it official, "Sometimes you are only given one chance in life.  It was up to me to open my eyes and see it.  That girl is my chance.  I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her... showing her how special she is, and how much I love her."

Regarding the TLC announcement, Kat 'tweeted' her version of how the cancellation decision was made,  "I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being "cancelled."  Thanks @TLC.  Regardless of everything I remain grateful."

Von D told PEOPLE, "In an effort to capitalize on my recent breakup, the network had decided to focus their energy on re-editing events that didn't happen while filming.  I have no regrets and am very proud of the original footage.  In my opinion, any attempt to compromise the honesty of that would be an insult to my fans and viewers."

Kat is sure of one thing, "I'm ready to end this chapter and want to focus on other projects now."  Marriage perhaps?

Check out the latest photos that Jesse and Kat posted to their Twitter pages:

kat von ds la ink cancelled

Kat Von D's reality TV series "LA Ink" has been cancelled after four seasons.

TLC issued a statement, saying, "TLC has decided that the current season of LA Ink will be its last.  The network is proud of what the series has accomplished in its four seasons, following Kat Von D's journey as an artist from Miami to Los Angeles. The series finale will air September 15th at 10 p.m."

Kat recently split from fiance Jesse James.  The two began dating last summer after James' messy and public divorce from Sandra Bullock, and had planned to get married this summer.

The news of the LA Ink cancellation comes just days after TLC's announcement that it is pulling the plug on another of the network's reality series, Kate Plus 8.

good day la sends kat von d running for home

Kat Von D stormed off the set of Good Day L.A. before her scheduled interview even got started on Thursday, and later lamented: "What can I say? I suck."

The tide turned for the reality star the moment show host Jeff Michael introduced the segment by mentioning her failed relationship with Jesse James and then cut to a film clip from L.A. Ink.

The new season premieres tonight on TLC, and features the couple in a scene where she surprises him by getting a tattoo inked on her rib cage -- a permanent likeness of his 5th grade school photo.

She went home to sulk and decided to explain what happened on her Facebook page:  "Although my intentions were never to offend or hurt anyone’s feelings, this isn't an apology for walking out on a silly morning show interview this morning- and this isn’t an attempt at justifying anything either. I don't expect people to understand, just like I can't expect myself to be able to please everyone at all times."

She continued: "Most of the time I’m good at rolling with the punches when things don't go 'as planned,' but somehow, I allowed today to get the best of me."

With the new season of LA Ink underway, she admits she's worried about press: "I'm not strong enough to do all the press I committed to doing for the show."

She doesn't expect the media to completely leave her alone, but she does want everyone to know that she is struggling.  She admits: "Even though it's not in my nature to cancel on people, it IS in my nature to admit when I'm weak."

Check out what happened this morning on Good Day LA:

kat von d tattoo of jesse

Well this sucks!  Yesterday Kat Von D announced on her Twitter page that she and Jesse James have split.  Today, a newly-released season five promo video for LA Ink shows Von D getting a new tattoo, featuring the childhood face of the West Coast Choppers founder.

The footage was captured before the demise of their relationship as a surprise for her guy.  Kat, already covered in tattoos, added Jesse's fifth grade school picture under her armpit.

Kat was as giddy and giggly as a school girl when she revealed her big surprise.  James looked nervous and called her "crazy."

A little frazzled by his reaction, she remarked: "I thought you were going to break up with me."  Oops!

Watch the promo video from LA Ink's season five opener below and let us know what you make of this odd exchange:

finished kaput over done splitsville for kat and jesse

We really bought into the whole romantic notion that Jesse James so eloquently shared about "the love of his life and soul mate" Kat Von D.  That fairytale turned out not to have a 'happily ever after' ending and they have called off their engagement.

The two hooked up after Jesse's very public and messy divorce with Sandra Bullock, involving a sordid cheating scandal.

The couple had planned to get married this summer but that has all changed with the sudden Twitter comment that Von D shared last night:

shocking news from kat von d

Jesse told People magazine: "I'm so sad because I really love her.  The distance between us was just too much."


The couple got engaged in January but the commute between Los Angeles, where the tattoo model shoots her reality show, and Austin, Texas, where James and his three children are living, proved that absence did not make the heart grow fonder.
