Kat Von D, the celebrity tattoo artist, stormed off the set of 'Good Day L.A' this morning (26th July 2011) after the anchor mentioned her recent split from reality star Jesse James. The 'Miami Ink' star was set to give an interview but "flipped out" after hearing how she was being introduced onto the show.
During the introduction, 'Good Day' aired a clip from Kat's show showing her getting a 'Jesse James' tattoo on her side. Anchor Jeff Michael then mentioned the relationship breakdown and the tattooist allegedly left the building before the interview had started. According to sources on the show, Kat had already approved the clip to air and agreed to speak about the separation. It's currently unclear why she had a change of heart, but later tweeted, "Dear GoodDayLA, thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion n respect for each other never fails to disappoint me". Host Jillian Reynolds later read out the tweet on camera, saying, "We sympathise that you broke up, but of course we were going to ask about it.that's the clip that they sent us".
Kat Von D was previously married to tattoo artist Oliver Peck, but the pair split in 2007. She later dated the Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx between 2008 and 2010.
