Picture: Kat Von D and Deadmaus hold hands as they go for a stroll together at The Grove Los Angeles, California - 11.12.12
Remember just a few weeks ago, when TV tattooist Kat Von D announced her split from Deadmau5 very publicly on Twitter? Well, the on-again couple have turned that little scenario right on its head and have now gotten engaged, in an equally public manner, after the producer tweeted a proposal to Kat via Twitter, with a link to a picture of an engagement ring on Saturday December 15.
The tweet to Kat read “I can’t wait for Christmas so… Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?” The picture file attached had text explaining “Changing the diamond to a black diamond FYI… they’ll finish the actual ring soon I hope. I love you,” next to a picture of a diamond ring with two silver skulls either side of the rock. The kind of ring you’d expect someone like Kat Von D to appreciate, that’s for sure. Not your traditional engagement ring but Deadmau5 was obviously confident his new fiancée would like it.
The couple have clearly managed to get over their bitter split of just a few weeks ago and Kat Von D’s response was nothing short of enthusiastic. Initially stuck for words, she posting a stream of exclamation marks, before letting her followers know she’d just got engaged by posting a message to say “Mi corazon!!! Thank you all for the lovely congratulations! Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!” Let’s hope this one last and that split a few weeks ago wasn’t a bad omen for them.
