Kat Von D Confirms Romance with Jesse James?

Kat Von D sent the Internet into a tizzy when she tweeted that she was dating Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James.

The LA Ink star posted a confirmation that she was dating Jesse on her Twitter earlier today. Kat wrote:

“And yes, Jesse and I are dating.”

The tweet was quickly picked up and retweeted by more than a hundred people, but when you check Kat’s main Twitter page the Jesse tweet is curiously missing. Did Kat’s Twitter feed get hacked or is this just a glitch?

It looks like Kat’s tweet might be the real deal, since she responded with a smiley emoticon to one Twitter user’s positive reaction to her Jesse news. However, the original tweet is still absent from her homepage.

Kat initially denied that she was dating Jesse, telling the press that they were “just friends.” Romance rumors started to fly after the two were spotted on a dinner date in Las Vegas. Maybe Kat had a change of heart about keeping the relationship private?

Kat appeared on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean radio show shortly before posting the tweet where she tip-toed around the Jesse question:

“Um… I’ve known Jesse since I was 22 actually. We’ve always been friends you know? And even when all that negative stuff went down and stuff, I stay out of all that drama. Going out, people were always asking what I thought about this and that. And I think it’s none of my business and it’s none of anyone’s business really. I think we’re all human and we’re all capable of making mistakes. I think if I were to be crucified for my drug addiction three years ago now, it would be harder to live with that. I’m sober now, I’ve made mistakes too. People have a hard time letting go of that, you know? For me, I’ve got a lot of respect for Jesse and how he handled it.”

Kat has previously dated Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx. Jesse divorced Oscar-winner Sandra earlier this year, after news broke that he was allegedly cheating on her with multiple tattooed ladies.

Do you think Jesse and Kat make a good match? And what’s up with that disappearing tweet? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
