NEW YORK (CBS) After some back-and-forth, looks like it's official between Kat Von D and Jesse James.


"Yes we're together - duh!" the tattooed "LA Ink" star, whose real name is Katherine Von Drachenberg, told E! News at the opening of her Wonderland gallery in West Hollywood Thursday.

The two attended the event together and reportedly had no problems showing their affection for each other when they posed for the cameras on the red carpet.

Drachenberg told People magazine that "Jesse is only my ninth boyfriend. I don't hang out with anybody unless I am in love."

Although not as direct as Drachenberg, James, who finalized his divorce with Sandra Bullock in June after admitting to being unfaithful, confirmed to reporters at the event he was "happy."

When asked what he liked about Von Drachenberg, James simply replied, "Everything."

Back in August, the two were seen getting affectionate at a Las Vegas restaurant and were later spotted together in Austin.

Drachenberg recently confirmed that she was dating James on her Twitter account, but then immediately deleted her post.

But now that she's "in love," seems like she has no problem admitting her relationship with James now.
