After being spotted together in Vegas this past weekend, Kat's rep denied that they were dating. A few days later she tweeted--then deleted--that she was indeed dating him. And now she's talking up a storm about him to KROQ's Kevin and Bean.
The tatted up reality star, who loves to kiss and tell, talked to Kevin and Bean about why she's perfect for Jesse and explains their past.
"Just because I have tattoos doesn't mean, 'Oh, you guys are a perfect match,' " the star of TLC's LA Ink, 28, tells the Kevin & Bean radio show on L.A.'s KROQ. "I think that I'm his type on a different level than people would assume."
"I've known Jesse since I was 22, actually. We've always been friends, you know?" They seemed awfully cozy in this picture taken back in 2007. Kat looks like a teenager with a crush on Jesse.
"He had his show on Discovery, that's how we met. I was looking for some advice when I first started on Miami Ink."
So how does Kat feel about Jesse being a serial cheater? "I am a believer that we're all human and we're all capable of making mistakes," she says.
"I think if I were to be crucified for my drug addiction three years ago now, it would be hard to live with that. I'm sober now, and it's awesome. But I have made mistakes, too. … I've got a lot of respect for Jesse and how he handled it."
They're definitely a match made in tattoo heaven. Do you think they'll last?
