Sunday, famous tattoo artist and former television star Kat Von D announced that ex-fiancé Jesse James cheated on her with more than a dozen women while they were together.
In a Facebook note, the Mexican-born artist revealed that she had just met the “19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.”
Von D and James began dating shortly after her relationship with Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx ended and James’ marriage to actress Sandra Bullock imploded amidst news that he cheated multiple times. The relationship advanced quickly from that point on. Confirmation of their relationship only came out in August 2010, but by January 2011 they were announcing they were engaged. They reportedly ended things in July, but got back together in August. On September 24, Von D once again announced that they had split.
As allegations that James had returned to his cheating ways arose, many were left shaking their heads, as it became evident that he had not changed his ways.
Though Von D says she encountered number 19 of James’ mistresses the Sunday she posted the Facebook note, she added that though the relationship was “toxic”, she does not “want to sink into the feelings of regret, or resentment. Because right now, for the first time in my life I have felt regret, (for someone like me, who’s never felt that before, this is hard to say out loud).”
