Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...or cheated on. Apparently, 19 was the magic number for former LA Ink reality star and tattoo artist Kat Von D. Upon learning that former fiancee Jesse James had cheated on her with approximately 19 women, Von D decided to cleanse her palate of the awful aftertaste by calling out the West Coast Choppers CEO in a public forum. Although a tell-all is probably still months away, the 29-year-old didn't waste any time broadcasting about what a bad, bad boy James was during their year together. Von D took to her Facebook page to write a blog called, "Thank You, Jesse James." Up until now, Von D had remained silent on the reasons behind their split, although many correctly speculated James was back to his evil ways. Von D wrote, "Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year. I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love." At least as honest and loving as her relationship with James... Von D says when she got together with the bad-boy biker she didn't believe the hype surrounding his issues with infidelity. Von D confesses, "There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people's ability to change for the better. Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible -- even in the people who seem hopeless." Von D goes on to say that she's saddened that James' womanizing ways keep getting the best of him, "I think it just made me sad today to imagine him still in that dark place -- where seeking validation through the attention of women takes precedence over being a good father, a sincere friend, a better coworker, and a happy individual." It doesn't sound like he needs any help being a good lover. In conclusion, Von D thanks her former fiancée, saying, "Time is something you can never get back, and what we do with this very present moment is the most real thing we have. So if that's the lesson Jesse forced me to face and learn by all of this, than all I can say is Thank You."
