The Word: Kat Von D and DJ Deadmau5 end engagement
What starts on Twitter ends on Twitter for Kat Von D and DJ Deadmau5.
The celebrity duo became engaged over the social networking site six months ago. Deadmau5 tweeted a picture of a black diamond engagement ring adorned with skulls, writing, “I can’t wait for Christmas so…. Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?” Von D accepted.
Six months later, they are kaput.
“Man, I’m a fool,” Von D wrote on Twitter Wednesday night. “Cheating on your loved one is the most hurtful thing one could do. I hate to have to admit, that this relationship is indeed over.” Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, decided to then take the conversation off of Twitter and onto a more personal space — Facebook. He had “relations with another woman” during a break the couple took.“Following that, Kat and I reconciled and I acknowledged being intimate with another person while we were estranged,” he continued. “We did move past those issues and I proposed to Kat in mid-December. At the end of June, it was clear that the relationship was not working and we mutually ended the engagement. I was not, at any point, unfaithful to Kat during our time together.”
Man, if a grown man who performs house music while dressed like a deranged Mickey Mouse and a reality star can’t make it, who can?
