Kat Von D Engaged to Deadmau5 – Who Proposed on Twitter!

Posted on

How, uh, romantic?

Electronic music star Deadmau5 took to Twitter to pose this question of girlfriend Kat Von D: “I can’t wait for Christmas so … Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?”

Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, included a photo of a diamond ring with the disclaimer, “Changing the diamond to black diamond FYI. Sorry for the jpg they’ll finish the actual ring soon I hope.”

Von D, 30, a tattoo artist and reality TV star, responded on her Twitter page with a string of exclamation points, then told her followers, “Please excuse me while I go squeeze the hell out of my fiancé!”

Deadmau5 then celebrated on Twitter with a three-part profanity and gushed, “brb while i spend the rest of my evening with my future wife :)”

This will be Von D’s latest shot at marriage. She previously was engaged to Sandra Bullock‘s ex Jesse James, broke up, reunited, then broke up again.
