LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Looks like Kat Von D has been hit with more dating drama.
The tattoo artist/reality TV personality and DJ Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) have parted ways – and both parties took to Twitter to vent about the split.
“Man. Can’t say I didn’t give it my best,” Kat, 30, Tweeted on Saturday. ”Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. #lessonlearned”
Adding, “Now, we can get all of the ‘I told you so’s’ outta the way… And move on. Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together.”
As for Deadmau5, the 31-year-old Canadian electro-house music master said he needed time to think.
“Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on. I guess I’m not cut out for relationships right now,” he Tweeted Saturday. “I’ll figure it out. No hard feelings.”
The couple, dubbed “Kat and Mau5” (mouse), were first spotted together in September, and the pair fell hard and fast (the deejay called Kat “The love of my life” just one month later) – a contributing factor in their breakup, according to Deadmau5.
“It happened too fast, I lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place that I’m having difficulty with,” he wrote. “She deserves someone stronger.”
Prior to dating Deadmau5, Kat was previously in a relationship with Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband, Jesse James. The two became engaged in January 2011, but called it off six months later.
