Kat Von D: 'I Believe Jesse James is The One'

"L.A. Ink" star Kat Von D was accompanied by a special date to the opening of her Wonderland Gallery Thursday night -- Jesse James!

The tattoo artist wasn't shy to gush about her new beau, who finalized his divorced from Oscar winner Sandra Bullock in June.

"Jesse is only my ninth boyfriend. I don't hang out with anybody unless I am in love," Von D said when asked if she and James had made it official.

When asked if she believed that the motorcycle maven was "The One" for her, she replied, "I believe he is."

Kat and Jesse have been friends for six years, but the "L.A. Ink" star said she stayed out of all the drama surrounding Jesse's cheating scandal -- and that she never hesitated when it came to dating him.

"I stayed away from that as much as possible, and when we connected recently, it was such a positive thing. It was just like, 'Wow, I can't believe I haven't spent this much time with you the entire time I've known you.' Now I'm just embracing it and enjoying it."

Jesse wasn't as vocal about his relationship with Kat, but when asked if he was happy, he replied, "Yes," and that he's at a point in his life that he believes he "deserves to be happy."
