kat von d twitter 2 Kat Von D has 'a lot of respect' for Jesse James. For what, pray tell?Kat Von D, the “LA Ink” star tweeted confirmation that she is dating biker mogul Jesse James on Wednesday (Aug. 18).

 And Thursday (Aug. 19) she visited the Kevin & Bean radio show on KROQ-FM to discuss their relationship.

“I’ve known Jesse since I was 22 actually,” she revealed. “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.” Really? Really? That has to make her the only woman on the planet that has any respect for the man who lied to and cheated on Sandra Bullock with a bevy of tattooed babes and didn’t even use condoms.  Kat didn’t reveal how their relationship has evolved now that he’s divorced from Sandy. But she did talk about why she is his type and it’s not all about tattoos and piercings, you silly surface-oriented people. “I think that I’m his type on a different level than people would assume,” she said. “Just because I have tattoos doesn’t mean we’re the perfect match.” No, but it’s a good start.
