Jesse James is a redeemed man, as far as Kat Von D is concerned.

The “LA Ink” star and rumored new beau of James said she has a “lot of respect”  for the way he “handled” his cheating scandal and failed marriage to Sandra Bullock, People mag reported.

"I am a believer that we're all human and we're all capable of making mistakes," Von D told the Kevin & Bean radio show Wednesday on LA’s KROQ-FM. "I think if I were to be crucified for my drug addiction three years ago now, it would be hard to live with that. I'm sober now, and it's awesome. But I have made mistakes, too.”

James and Von D were reportedly spotted hand holding and kissing in Las Vegas over the weekend.

On Wednesday, Von D tweeted confirmation that “yes, Jesse and I are dating,” before later deleting the post.

Whatever their status, Von D said she and the “Monster Garage” and “Jesse James is a Dead Man” reality share a deep connection.

"Just because I have tattoos doesn't mean, 'Oh, you guys are a perfect match,'” she said on KROQ. "I think that I'm his type on a different level than people would assume."

Von D said she met the bad boy motorcycle mechanic when she was 22, and came to him for advice when starting “Miami Ink.”
