Pretty much every time we’ve had to hear about former owner of West Coast Choppers/Current CEO of Jesse James Firearms Unlimited, Jesse James (or Vanilla Gorilla, as he’s unlovingly been referred to here at Dlisted during his long tenure of improprieties), it’s usually because he said something gross, did something gross, or screwed one or multiple gross women while still being married. In more positive news, I guess (for who, I’m not sure), he just tied the knot with former porn star, Bonnie Rotten.
While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have voiced some “concerns” about getting into bed with Spotify if Joe Rogan is also gonna be there getting the sheets all greasy, The Rock is more than eager to hop on in and get a look at those legendary nips up close. And he’s even agreed to bring some of his signature tequila now that Joe’s addressed the controversy. Possible future president The Rock was apparently one of several people who were actually able to stomach the stream of verbal diarrhea spewing out of Joe’s mouth in his almost 10-minute long response to Neil Young and Joni Mitchell telling Spotify to kick rocks for helping perpetuate misinformation about COVID-19 on their #1 rated podcast The Joe Rogan Experience. According to TMZ, The Rock has sampled Joe’s hot and chunky stream and declared it to be “Great stuff.”
Not long ago, we learned that Kat Von D was planning on pulling a reverse-Beverly Hillbillies situation, which is to say she’s selling her big fancy Los Angeles mansion, complete with custom cee-ment pond, and moving her family to Indiana where she can live the simple quiet life, far away from California’s tyrannical government overreach. Originally, the plan was for Kat, her husband Rafael Reyes, and their 3-year-old son Leafar, to maintain a primary residence in California, where Kat owns High Voltage Tattoo, and to live part-time in the mansion she bought in Vevay, Indiana, where she can cosplay a COVID dismisser ’till her heart’s content. Then it was revealed she had plans to sell both her home and her business and leave permanently. Well, she wasn’t throwing out empty threats. Her Disneyland Haunted Mansion house has been listed for sale.
Kat Von D has made it clear that she’s not really into vaccines, COVID-19 safety precautions, or just generally following the rules. Lo and behold, guess who might have gotten busted by a former employee for allegedly running her Los Angeles tattoo shop, High Voltage Tattoo, during California’s COVID-19 lockdown last year? Because there’s nothing more badass than operating a non-essential establishment outside of state-mandated health directives implemented for the sake of reduced positive caseloads and limit overall community transmission, I guess?
At the end of last year, non-Nazi/non-anti-vaxxer Kat Von D bought a mansion in Vevay, Indiana so she could escape California’s “tyrannical government overreach” and “ridiculous taxing.” And… COVID restrictions? Probably. At the time Kat assured everyone that she’d be only be Indiana part-time, and she wouldn’t be selling her LA tattoo shop. But yesterday she added an extremely delayed “…not!” and announced she was closing High Voltage Tattoo shop after 14 years in business and 4 seasons of TLC’s LA Ink. And West Hollywood wept…
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.
