Kat Von D split from Jesse James earlier this year after a whirlwind romance and engagement, and now, after months of speculation, the tattoo queen is finally spilling why. Yes, Jesse James cheated on Kat Von D.
Von D spilled the goods in an open letter on her Facebook page.
“Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year,” she wrote.
“…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 know I deserve a big fat ‘I told you so,’ from everyone, and wish I didn’t have to say, ‘You all were more right than you’ll ever know’ but you were,” Von D wrote.
“Yes, I am pretty tired of getting mistaken for the girl who everyone believes to have broken up Jesse and Sandra’s marriage, just because I have black hair and tattoos like that other gal. That does get a [sic] quite annoying at times, and it would be nice to not be associated with her, but that’s trivial in the grand scheme of things. 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.
“I don’t want to sink into the feelings of regret, or resentment. Because right now, for the first time in my life I have felt regret, (for someone like me, who’s never felt that before, this is hard to say out loud).”
Sounds like Kat Von D finally had her eyes opened to the kind of man she was really dealing with — something many women can relate to.
Jesse James was previously married to Sandra Bullock. That relationship imploded when it was revealed just days after the actress’s Oscar win that James had been cheating on Bullock with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee — the other girl with black hair and tattoos to whom Von D referred.
