I cannot say I am surprised by the latest reports involving Ami James from Miami Ink and his former employee Kat Von D. There are several reports out there saying that Ami is jealous of the success of L.A. Ink. I have to admit, I think it is all fabrication. Ami may very well be jealous, but for him to admit this much to the press, well, that would be just plain stupid.
Unless of course, it is all “for” press of course, and this feud still has some life left in it I guess…..
Here are a few quotes from a recent article in the New York Post.
A source close to “Miami Ink” star Ami James tells us he’s “going crazy” over the fact his ex-employee, hottie Kat Von D., now has her own tattoo show, “LA Ink,” which airs before his on TLC. He’s also fuming about a huge billboard on the West Side Highway that once featured Ami, but was taken down and replaced with a huge photo of Kat. “He’s now berating his staff, the cameramen, everyone in his path,” said the source. “He is so jealous of Kat and her success it’s making him insane. He’s moody, you can’t predict how bad he’ll act on any given day.
