Tattoo artist-to-the-stars Kat Von D has fallen head over heels for TV mechanic Jesse James, confessing she's already "in love" with Sandra Bullock's cheating ex after just weeks of dating. The inked-up couple was first romantically linked in August when revelers spotted the pair enjoying a night out in Las Vegas.
Von D confirmed the news of the romance in a post on her Twitter.com page, telling her followers, "Yes, Jesse and I are dating", before deleting the message soon afterwards. And the reality TV stars have since gone public with their relationship, posing together for cameras on Thursday night, September 2 when they attended the opening of Von D's Wonderland gallery in Hollywood.
Von D, who split from rocker Nikki Sixx earlier this summer, now reveals she's fallen hard for James. She tells People.com, "Jesse is only my ninth boyfriend. I don't hang out with anybody unless I am in love." When asked if she believes James is the one for her, she says, "I believe he is, so yeah."
And the celebrity tattooist insists she has paid little attention to the cheating scandal that ended James' marriage to actress Bullock. She adds, "I stayed away from that as much as possible, and when we connected recently, it was such a positive thing. It was just like, 'Wow, I can't believe I haven't spent this much time with you the entire time I've known you.' Now I'm just embracing it and enjoying it." James' divorce from the Oscar winner was finalized in June.
