Whether he’s slagging off Ultra Music Festival or railing against pop collaborations, deadmau5 enjoys using social media as a tool to let his fans know what’s going on in his life. This weekend deadmau5 took to twitter, announcing that his relationship with celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D was over like Mitt Romney’s political aspirations. It seems that a love of ink just couldn’t hold their relationship together. “Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on,” deadmau5 tweeted. “I guess I’m not cut out for relationships right now. And…it happened too fast, I lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place.That place that I’m having difficulty with.
“She deserves someone stronger,” he added. “That’s it for the personal stuff…on with our regularly scheduled deadmau5 crap.”
Naturally Von D — who has broken out Smiths records to soothe her soul during this difficult time — was quick to fire off her thoughts about the breakup. “Man, I sure was wrong. But at least he made it a no-brainer to break that off. #lessonlearned,” tweeted Von D. “Now, we can get all of the ‘I told you so’s’ outta the way…And move on. Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together.”
A moment of silence, please, for what was and will now never be.
