Kat Von D Opens Up on Jesse James Split, Interview Fiasco: I Suck!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kat Von D is speaking out about her recent split with Jesse James and how her emotions spiraled out of control, culminating in her walking off the set of an interview with Good Day LA, then getting into a Twitter feud with its host.

This crazy week has led, at last, to a moment of clarity.

"What can I say?" the title of her latest blog post reads, regarding the Good Day LA incident. "I suck. I allowed today to get the best of me."

Days after news broke that James and Von D broke up, calling off their engagement, the LA Ink star is not saying sorry – she's "not strong enough."

"It is in my nature to admit when I'm weak," she writes.

Kat Von D is also not apologizing to – or dissing – Jesse James, to whom she got engaged last winter. "In my relationship, I had never before felt as solid and strong – even though the world said different by all the criticism," she says.

Not that it was easy. "Lost a lot of friends and caused turmoil within some of my family members because of the bull– the media put out there," Kat laments. "Some fans even changed their perception of who they thought I was."

Those lost friends may never come back, but the memories she shared with James will last forever. She is, just FYI, keeping the tattoo of his face.

The tattoo artist also clarified that although "none of this happened overnight," she had only the best intentions for her relationship with James.

"It felt like it was just the two of us against the world. Never planned on walking away from this relationship, let alone the timing of things."

Kat did not elaborate on rumors that James was involved with another woman, but those don't sound like the words of a woman scorned to us.


Kat I loved your show. I will miss watching you and your staff. I feel terrible that so many people out there think that just because someone is in the public eye that they can't be hurt by what others think. Shame on all of you that judge kat for her failed relationships when I don't know any one who has only liked, loved, dated, and married one person their entire life. Kat you are a fantastic artist, in your tats, paintings, music, and now clothing. I can only wish you the bbest and hope to see you on tv again.


I love Kat Von D as an artist. I have watched her gothrough many boyfirends; all being dudes in the public eye, mostly in entertainment. Kat may need to spend some timewith herself to realize what she REALLY wants in a man and life. Best of luck to her in her future. I do not have any tattoos but I love her work and will miss her show.


1st of all i think she's stupid as hell for ever getting involved w/ that creep. I mean i am a big huge Sandra fan and for anyone to dothat to her doesn't deserve anyone or anything, i mean i don't know what kind of person Sandra was in there relationship but it doesn't matter, if he was unhappy then get out don't traet woman like that and kate should never have given him the time or day and since she did, well she found out the hard way he's a douch. As far as tattoos or her appearance that has nothing to do w/ it look at him and the hooch he cheated on Sandra w/ she's totally discusting and looks like a crack whore and i love tattoos but theres a limit, when he was w/ sandra he hit the jack pot and then to cheat for that nasty ugly woman well she's better off w/ out his dirty rotten ass and so is Kate. good riddens i say he's a dog of the worst kind.


"I wouldn't want a woman that looked like her to be in the mother position for my little girl! I'm not being mean, it's just the truth!! " No, you're not being mean, just incredibly judgmental and narrow minded. What she looks like has nothing to do with what kind of mother figure she would have been (or will be if she decides to go down that path later in life). Not to mention, he's covered in tattoos himself, so I'm sure that had nothing to do with why they're not together.


That's correct you don't suck but if you say it you probably believe it! get over it & get some self esteemyou have so much to be THANKful for!!! just look around & thank god for the fans that got you where you're at & then smell the roses &get over it you can & you will and then you will RISE above it all & becme so much more amazingm I know I've been there & back!! U will miss the lime light but then you will not! Beleive it or not a iam a Sandra Fan! because she does not beat herselfm up like you are doing!! You are an amazing Artist!!! BELIEVE it We ALL do!!


So sad....both Kat and Jesse James will get over it. There are lots of fish in the ocean. Kat Von D will be alright. Jesse James will be alright. Next time those two get into a relationship with someone else, take it slow or stay single and have lots of fun partying. I stopped getting into relationships because to me it was too much pressure, stress, etc.


Shame! They deserved each other, but then - no one deserves being deceived and cheated on, yet there was plenty of history and warning for what he was like.


Hi my name is david anthony butler and i would just like to say that girl you didn't have to break up i mean you two looked like
you and your man go together so try this go to the church that you go to and get back together and man without a guy in your life to guide you on your just a helpless person so just do yourself a favor get that man that you so dessperlately love
back in your life so that you can lead a fun and also fasnatining
life. the end.


You don't suck Kat - but you need to find better guys out there. I know a few myself that would take care of your heart.


he didnt even look happy when she showed him the tattoo. more like freaked out maybe thats why he broke it off. I dnt kno much about her but she does seem nice and i think she really did love him sum ppl jus always fall for the wrong ppl
