Well this new Hollywood pairing kind of makes sense. Kat Von D and Steve-O have been seen smooching around town, causing the dating rumors to swirl. It appears that those rumors are legitimate.
The Jackass star took to Instagram to share a photo of himself kissing the tattoo artist. Steve-O, whose real name is Steve Glover, captioned the rather romantic photo, “How can I be so lucky?”
Just days before Steve-O confirmed the dating rumors, he shared another photo of himself looking rather happy with Katherine von Drachenberg, who refers to herself as Kat Von D. He also gushed over the edgy beauty icon in his Instagram post.
“I know it’s crazy that I became a clean and sober, hybrid-driving, animal-rescuing vegan who’s super into meditating, but I’m glad I did. I’m even happier that I get to spend so much time with a shockingly gorgeous and amazingly talented woman who is all of those things, kinda wild like me, and doesn’t give a f**k how many teeth I really have.”
Steve-O isn’t the only one who’s catching feelings in this relationship. Kat also shared a photo of them standing side-by-side in front of an artistic red-and-white striped wall, along with the caption, “To die by your side, well the pleasure, the privilege is mine.”
Rumors started swirling when Kat Von D and Steve-O started posting pictures of themselves together on social media. Neither of the stars confirmed the rumors that they were in a relationship until Steve’s post on Monday. The new couple were also spotted heading out of LAX airport in time for the holidays.
The 33-year-old former LA Ink show star and the 41-year-old stunt performer didn’t show any affection at the airport, but they looked very happy together. According to the Daily Mail Online, Steve-O and Kat have been friends for several years and were even rumored to have dated in 2007.
During their sighting, the sexy tattooed model wore a black military coat with black wide-leg pants and a black lace bra. Meanwhile, Steve kept it casual in a navy blue plaid shirt with khaki pants. Both stars were also seen wearing dark sunglasses.

Kat Von D has been previously linked to other stars in the past. She was married to Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007. Then she dated Jesse James shortly after his divorce from Sandra Bullock in 2011. Kat was also dated Deadmau5’s Joel Zimmerman from 2012 to 2013.
Surprisingly, Steve-O’s own dating life hasn’t been as high-profile. He was previously linked to George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis for three months back in 2012. According to Who’s Dated Who, he was previously linked to Lacey Schwimmer in 2009 and Nicole Richie in 2006. It also looks like he’s dated his share of models and actresses over the years.
Prior to confirming the dating rumors with Kat Von D, he previously dated Stacey Solomon, also in 2015. It’s unclear whether or not the couple were serious, or if they just casually dated.
It appears that the comedian’s relationship is making him feel cooler and calmer these days. According to the New York Daily News, he was arrested in August for climbing up a construction crane while holding an inflatable orca to protest Sea World, back in August of this year. Steve was sentenced to 30 days in jail since it called more than 80 firemen and 30 police officers to the scene.
