Kat von D has taken to her Facebook page to reveal that Jesse James cheated on her with 19 women during their “toxic relationship.”
Von D was the famous rebound girl for Jesse James after his 2010 divorce from Sandra Bullock. The L.A. Ink star, 29, and the motorcycle mogul, 43, called it quits in September.
In a Facebook confessional on Sunday titled “Thank You, Jesse James” Von D wrote:
“Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year, I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship, all of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love. There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better,” she writes. “Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible — even in the people who seem hopeless,” she admits.
But the post isn’t about revenge against her ex, she insists.
“I tried my best to go through all of this without venting, or complaining, or fueling more tabloid mumbo jumbo — but this isn’t about any of that… This is about me making peace with myself, and forgiving myself for making some bad mistakes. I deserve a big fat ‘I told you so,’ from everyone, and wish I didn’t have to say, ‘You all were more right than you’ll ever know’ but you were,” she concedes. “Not to worry, I’ve gladly paid the consequences for every mistake I’ve ever made, but learned so much from each of them.”
