“Kat wants to show that this was a fairy tale and that she was truly in love,” said Gil Lopez, the show’s executive producer in an exclusive interview with People. “Unfortunately, [the split] happened, but there have been no re-edits.” The new season of LA Ink even shows Von D getting a tattoo of her ex-beau.
The 29-year tattooed star of LA Ink took to Twitter to confirm the split with James, who infamously cheated on his ex-wife, actress Sandra Bullock. “I am no longer w Jesse, and out of respect for him, his family and myself, that’s all the info I’d like to share,” Von D posted to her followers. “Thanks for respecting that.”
Lopez said the season will show the former couple was truly in love. “We’re going to hear how that romance started,” he said. “We’re going to hear how he proposed to her and we’re going to hear how they got to the point where they are up to now.”
