Here's some news that is bound to get tattoo artist Kat Von D fired up. State Farm Insurance is adding insult to injury by suing the former realty star for a house fire that killed her beloved cat Valentine. According to TMZ, the insurance company is going for a whopping $1 million. The 2010 fire started after 30-year-old Von D lit a bunch of candles in her house, which inadvertently led to the brutal blaze that caused $909,199 in damages. Initially, State Farm coughed up the cash to cover the house fire. However, now they want Von D to pay up for the firestorm that damaged her home. State Farm is basically saying "you break it, you buy it." Should Von D lose the lawsuit, that's one settlement that is certain to put a major dent in her wallet.
