This time last year, Jesse James and Sandra Bullock were still weeks away from a buzzed-about break-up, but in 2011, James is professing his love for a different brunette: 28-year-old reality TV star Kat Von D.
The couple, who reportedly began dating last summer, have recently been all a-Twitter with their love. Kat Von D tweeted January 8, "He loves me tee hee" along with a Twitpic of a bouquet of roses. James, 41, responded to her giddy post by first saying "It's true" and following it up with, "@thekatvond I have Never Felt so Loved! I'm The Luckiest MoFo in the World!" the next day.
Wait, there's more.
On January 10, James tweeted the desolation he felt when @thekatvond's not around. "Went from top of Cloud 9! to Total Despair in 1hr 35min Flat. So Missing @thekatvond." On January 12, James confessed, "48 hours away from you feels like a year."
But to Ms. Von D, the couple's time apart "feels like eternity." She added, "What are we gonna do? I'm not a Stage-Five-Clinger, but I need you around me, babe."
If you're wondering why so much of their romance is on display for the world to see, James provides an explanation: "They say True love will always shine through. The only reason I started Twitter again? so I could publicly profess my love for @thekatvond," the "Monster Garage" star wrote on January 13.
Indeed, by January 16, the amore was still going strong, with the "L.A. Ink" star tweeting, "@FreeJesseJames Thank you always supporting me and believing in everything I do. But most of all, thanks for being my best friend."
That same day, James tweeted to his lady love, "Baby? You make it so easy to do everything I can to show you how Amazing you are. I see it as clear as a bell. My other half."
