Kat and the Hats

Kat Von D announced her split from Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx Aug. 12, then was spotted with Jesse James at N9NE Steakhouse in the Palms Aug. 14, because some people are incapable of learning from the very public, sordid and Emmy-ruining lessons of others.

The following day, Von D and James toured Bodies: The Exhibition at Luxor, where they were holding hands. James ducked out of the hall when a staff member asked to take a picture of Von D, though she even helped fix the flash on the camera when it wouldn’t go off.

By Aug. 16, Von D insisted that the two of them were just friends who shared an innocent relationship based on their mutual cable channel. Maybe, though, someone tipped her off to those pictures of James’ mistress in an SS hat. And James in an SS hat. That’s too many SS hats.
