Kat Von D Explains Why She Just Bought a House in Indiana

Kat Von D is the owner of a new home.

The 38-year-old tattoo artist and former reality TV star took to Instagram on Thursday (December 17) to reveal that she and husband Rafael Reyes just purchased a new home in Indiana.

“It’s official! Vevay, Indiana here we come!❤️🇺🇸” Kat wrote while holding a “Sold” sign in front of her Victorian-style house.

Shortly after posting the photo, Kat revealed she was bombarded by questions from family, friends, and fans asking if she was leaving L.A. for a move to the Midwest.

She then took to her Story to address the new house.

“Getting lotsa texts from friends asking if we are moving to Indiana and selling our home in Hancock Park, and if so, why,” Kat started.

“Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA, but with all that has been taking place in California, with terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so many more corruption, we just felt the need to plant roots in a small town where there is nature, where my son can be free to play, and where we can eventually retire one day,” Kat explained.

If you didn’t know, Kat and Rafael have been married since 2018 and share 2-year-old son Leafar.

“So, no, I’m not closing my shop in LA. We aren’t selling our home,” Kat added. “But will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house.”

Kat Von D Went Through The Same Abuse at the Same School as Paris Hilton Did

Kat Von D is opening up about her experience at the Provo Canyon School in Utah, which is the same school Paris Hilton speaks about in her documentary, This Is Paris.

If you haven’t seen, Paris got candid about the kind of abuse she was subject to at the school when she was a teenager, and it seems Kat went through the same thing.

In her Instagram video, Kat revealed that she “spent those 6 traumatic months of my teenage years, only to leave with major PTSD and other traumas due to the unregulated, unethical and abusive protocols of this ‘school’ — and cannot believe this place is STILL OPERATING.”

She also thanked Paris for shining a light on the institution.

“Watching [Paris] talk about some of her past trauma going to this school that her parents sent her as a teenager. I don’t like to call them schools because they’re not schools they’re f***ing lockdown facilities. It just triggered so much s*** for me because it turns out I went to the same school.”

Kat continued, “I was sent to the same place and I was 15 when I was sent and I spent my 16th birthday in there. I was there for a total of six months and they were definitely the most traumatic six months of my life.”

Her own claims include being kidnapped from her bed and blindfolded before being brought to the facility in Utah.

She added, “I had no idea it was gonna end up being that I was trapped for six months at this pretty crazy, torturous awful place.”

Watch Kat‘s full confessional below:

Paris recently appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show and discussed her experiences with the host, bonding over the fact that they both went into solitary confinement.

Kat Von D Is Selling Her Makeup Brand Kat Von D Beauty

Kat Von D is selling her makeup brand, Kat Von D Beauty.

The tattoo artist and beauty entrepreneur revealed the news in a message to fans on social media on Thursday (January 16).

“This past year has been one of great change for me. As many of you know, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, launched my vegan shoe line, and am now busy prepping to release my long awaited album in the Spring, followed by an international tour! As much as I wish I could balance all of this, on top of continuing my makeup line, it has become clear to me that I just can’t do everything at the maximum capacity. It’s hard to admit this, since I’ve always said ‘You can do everything and anything.’ But I don’t think admitting one’s limits is a bad thing,” she wrote.

“With that said, I’ve decided to sell my shares of the brand, turning it over to Kendo, my partners for the past 11 years. This was not an easy decision, but after careful consideration, I decided I wanted the makeup line to continue to thrive and grow, and I believe Kendo is primed to do just that,” she went on to reveal.

“The transition for you, my loyal customers, will be seamless. In order to avoid any confusion with such a big change, Kat Von D Beauty will take a moment to rebrand itself, so you will start noticing the change from KatVonD Beauty to KvD Vegan Beauty. I’d like to thank my beloved fans+followers who supported my vision to create a brand that stood for compassion, true artistry, and challenged modern ideals of beauty — most of which I never could relate to. I was able to create a makeup line that made outsiders like me feel like we have a place in this ‘beauty’ world, and gave myself and others the tools to express ourselves in our own unique way, whether it was embraced by the majority or not. And I just couldn’t have done any of this without you!”
