And Celebuzz can exclusively reveal the identity of the LA Ink star’s mystery man.
The bearded gent snapped hand-in-hand with the 30-year-old reality star in West Hollywood, Calif. is English rapper Scroobius Pip, 31, whose real name is David Meads.
So who is Pip?
Pip was born, and still lives in, Essex, England, where he has been performing as one-half of electro hip-hop duo dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip.
Although he’s not well known in the English music mainstream, Pip had some success last year after splitting away from his partner and releasing the album “Distraction Pieces.”
Von D and her rapper beau looked cozy as they shopped on trendy Melrose Ave., but their romance may end up being a vacation fling, as Pip will soon return to his native England.
On June 25, he made it clear he would only be in Los Angeles for a week.
“Dear anyone I REALLY know, imma be in LA for a week visiting lovely peoples. If I’ve forgotten I should be saying hi to you then remind me,” Pip tweeted.
Von D has had a bad run in the love department: she claims her ex-fiance James — who starred on Monster Garage and was married to Sandra Bullock — cheated on her with at least nineteen women.
Before that, Von D dated Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx.
