Kat Von D Bought A House In Indiana To Escape California’s “Tyrannical Government Overreach” (But Is Keeping Her House And Business In L.A.)
Like Elon Musk before her, Kat Von D has had it with California’s high taxes and its “tyrannical government overreach” (read: she’s whining about Governor Newsom’s COVID restrictions to try to bring down the state’s crazy high coronavirus cases) so she’s bought a mansion in the small town of Vevay, Indiana. I bet the people of Vevay did Nazi that coming. But well, it’s not like Kat Von D sold her L.A. house, moved her business to Indiana, packed up all her shit, and blew a “fuck you” to California the same way she blows a “fuck you” to vaccines. No, it sounds like Kat Von D is keeping Los Angeles as her base. So yeah, she just found an overdramatic and ridiculous way of saying, “I bought a second home.” Performative house buying of the rich is a new one to me.
A few weeks ago, Hot Topic’s answer to Jenny McCarthy was in Vevay, Indiana, and put up an Instagram post, asking if she should open up a tattoo shop there. That seemed random, but last week, Kat cleared up why she’s thinking of opening up a tattoo shop in Vevay by declaring that she bought a house there:
WLKY says that Kat’s new Indiana mansion is one of two historic mansions in Vevay and it’s 12,000 square feet with seven bedrooms, thirteen fireplaces, eight bathrooms, and seven balconies. The mansion is on 14.5 acres and includes a small vineyard and a water garden, which I’m sure once Kat Von D is done with it, it’ll feature swastika-shaped lily pads. The listing price was $1.87 million but Kat apparently paid a little less than that. And when Kat let out an “Indiana, here we come!”, she really meant, “Indiana, I’ll see you every few months when I want to post an Instagram video of me kissing your ground after bravely escaping the tyrannical grasp of the state where I have to wear a mask to keep people alive!”
When some wondered if Kat was leaving California forever and sold her $6.5 million 11-bedroom L.A. mansion, she let everyone know in an Instagram Story that she, her husband Rafael Reyes, and their 2-year-old son Leafar are not moving to Indiana full-time. Kat just decided to buy a second home in Indiana because of California’s COVID-19 restrictions, but yet, they’re keeping their mansion and her tattoo business in L.A. So yeah, Kat Von D is really sticking it to CA by continuing to pay taxes on her L.A. mansion, and business. Hey, I don’t think Kat Von D has ever been accused of making sense. via Twitter:
When Governor Newsom released CA’s Thanksgiving guidelines and advised people against large indoor gatherings, Kat Von D cried from her multi-million dollar mansion about how she’s basically a victim of oppression!!!
Kat Von D ignored those guidelines and threw a big, indoor Thanksgiving. But wait until Kat sees that the county where her new Indiana mansion is located tells its citizens to wear a mask and social distance and warns that mask-less social gatherings lead to the spread of coronavirus. Kat Von D is going to let out another maskless scream about tyranny before announcing that she’s escaping the authoritarian hellscape of Indiana and moving to Antarctica. “Call PETA because he just wished Kat Von D upon us,” said the penguins of Antarctica.
