Kat Von D: "I've Got A Lot Of Respect For Jesse"

  • Kat Von D did a radio interview in which she attempted to justify, rationalize and explain dating Jesse James.

"I'm a believer that we're all human and we're all capable of making mistakes. 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." And: "I've known Jesse since I was 22, actually. We've always been friends… He had his show on Discovery; that's how we met. I was looking for some advice when I first started on Miami Ink." [NYDN]
