Kat Von D and Jesse James are engaged ... again!
This was a happy revelation from the tattoo artist Thursday, since earlier today TLC announced that it was canceling her show LA Ink.
Kat and Jesse each Tweeted pictures of themselves embracing at 2:30 p.m. PT, leading fans to wonder if something was up between the two. Jesse's black and white photo of the two in bed (above) was far more intimate than Kat's outdoor pic, and he even included the phrase "para siempre," meaning "forever."
Kat is even back to wearing her engagement ring.
Officially announcing that the engagement was back on, Jesse told People magazine:
- "Sometimes you are only given one chance in life. It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her."
The two coupled up last summer, just months after James' divorce from Sandra Bullock was finalized. They first got engaged in January, but called it off in July due to distance - Kat worked in Los Angeles while Jesse was mostly in Austin, Texas.
No word on when the couple will officially tie the knot.
Despite the good news, Kat Von D has been verbally battling it out with TLC all day. The network claims they canceled the show, while Kat says it was her decision to bow out of the series.
She told People:
- "In an effort to capitalize on my recent breakup, the network has decided to focus their energy on re-editing events that didn't happen while filming. I have no regrets and am very proud of the original footage. In my opinion, any attempt to compromise the honesty of that would be an insult to my fans and viewers."
Kat added, "As grateful as I am to have been a part of a show like LA Ink, I'm ready to end this chapter and want to focus on other projects now."
And to focus on her man!
