Kat Von D, Deadmau5 End Engagement After Six Months
Six months after the Canadian DJ proposed to the celebrity tattoo artist online, the pair have called it quits, separately confirming the news online. (The couple also announced a brief split in November 2012, also online).
“Man, I’m a fool,” Von D wrote on Twitter Wednesday night. "Cheating on your loved one is the most hurtful thing one could do. I hate to have to admit, that this relationship is indeed over.”
On Thursday morning, Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, took to his Facebook page to clear the air on the subject of infidelity.
According to Deadmau5, during the couple’s November 2012 split, he had “relations with another woman.”
“Following that, Kat and I reconciled and I acknowledged being intimate with another person while we were estranged,” he continued.
“We did move past those issues and I proposed to Kat in mid-December. At the end of June, it was clear that the relationship was not working and we mutually ended the engagement. I was not, at any point, unfaithful to Kat during our time together.”
Von D, who was previously engaged to Sandra Bullock’s ex Jesse James, started dating Deadmau5 after meeting at a party last fall. On Dec. 15, 2012, the L.A. Ink star accepted an online proposal from the Grammy-nominated artist, who gave her a black diamond engagement ring adorned with skulls.
