Mere hours after TLC announced its cancellation of Kat Von D’s reality show LA Ink, Kat Von D’s ex-fiance, Jesse James, had an announcement of his own: they’re back on! What does he have to say about he and Kat Von D?
“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,” Jesse James tells People.
The engagement is back on, and Von D is once again wearing her engagement ring. James made the news official on his Twitter account (@FreeJesseJames), by posting a pic of he and Von D kissing in bed, with the caption *para siempre*.
A few hours before posting the kissing twitpic, he posted a collection of Kat Von D pics on his “buttpee.tumbler.com” account with the caption *missing*. Kat Von D has not commented publicly yet on her relationship with Jesse James but has a few choice words on LA Ink’s cancellation.
She says on her Twitter profile (@TheKatVonD): “I love how me deciding to not continue doing LA Ink, turns into being ‘cancelled.’ Thanks @TLC. Regardless of everything I remain grateful.” She also tells People:
“In an effort to capitalize on my recent breakup, the network has decided to focus their energy on re-editing events that didn’t happen while filming…In my opinion, any attempt to compromise the honesty of that would be an insult to my fans and viewers. As grateful as I am to have been a part of a show like LA Ink, I’m ready to end this chapter and want to focus on other projects now.”
Will Kat Von D and Jesse James last this time? Do you want them to last?
