Kat Von D & Jesse James are Engaged

Kat Von D and Jesse James are engaged. The controversial couple started dating in the summer of 2010, with Von D defiantly proclaiming that she was in love with James (who at the time was probably America's most hated man) almost immediately.

In case you somehow forgot, James brazenly cheated on his previous wife, Sandra Bullock, then allowed the news to sully what was probably the crowning achievement of her career (her Oscar win). But we guess Von D still thinks he is a keeper!

"You know sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs," James told People. "I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a f----n' blast!"

Here's hoping these crazy kids can make it work and that James doesn't prove that old adage "Once a cheater, always a cheater," right!
