NEW YORK (CBS) Tattoo artist Kat Von D seems to be a little indecisive about her relationship with Jesse James.


Just two days after her publicist denied any romance reports, the "LA Ink" star, whose real name is Katherine Von Drachenberg, confirmed to the world via her Twitter account that she is indeed dating Sandra Bullock's ex.

After Tweeting Wednesday, "Yes, Jesse and I are dating," for her 250,000 plus followers to see, Drachenberg, 28, promptly deleted the message, but not before it had been copied and re-Tweeted by more than  100 other users.

Over the weekend, Drachenberg and James, 41, were spotted getting cozy together over dinner at N9NE restaurant at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. Her publicist told People magazine that "they did have dinner," but "there is no romance there with Jesse."

However, a friend of hers told AOL's Popeater that she is "totally into him."

"Jesse just has this way with women that makes you melt," the source said. "Plus, Kat feels bad for him. He's the most hated man in America, after what he did to Sandra, which she finds kind of sexy."
