Who is Kat Von D’s husband? This is a common question posed by new fans and followers of the artist.
Katherine Von Drachenberg, better known by her stage name Kat Von D, is a Mexican-American tattoo artist, entrepreneur, reality TV star, and singer who is presently married to Rafael Reyes, also known as his stage name Leafar Seyer. Kat Von D married Seyer in a “sudden ceremony” in 2018, according to a report published on Brides.
Kat Von D teased her engagement with her husband Seyer by sharing a video on her official Instagram account on February 14, the same year.
Seyer was shown flashing a gleaming ring on his finger when a private plane soared over him with a banner that said, “I Love You Kat Von D,” in the video.
Life with Kat Von D’s Husband and Son
Her followers were ecstatic when she revealed her wedding to her then-boyfriend only six days after announcing her engagement to Seyer. On December 3, 2018, the tattoo artist shared a photo of her husband, Seyer, carrying baby infant in his arms while a buggy stood behind them on Instagram.
Leafar Von Drachenberg Reyes, the infant in Seyer’s arms in the above photograph, was their son. As of this writing, their son is two years old. Kat Von D’s photo was accompanied by a lengthy text in which she announced her pregnancy.
She later praised her “dear friends+family, fans+followers” for their patience while the couple waited to reveal “his long awaited birth!” in the same writing.
Kat Von D also requested her fans to forgive her for her impending online silence, stating that she wanted to “take the next 40 days [the 4th trimester] off.” The tattooist highlighted the necessity to “concentrate on the baby” and the couple’s “great relationship,” which was “transitioning into amazing motherhood” at the time.
Leafer’s actual date of birth was previously unclear; however, Kat Von D revealed it when she wished her son on his first birthday, which was November 30, 2019.
Prior to Seyer, Kat Von D’s whirlwind romances
Before marrying her current spouse, Seyer, three years ago, the tattoo artist had a succession of on-again, off-again relationships, including her marriage to fellow tattoo artist Oliver Peck.
That’s correct, Kat Von D married American author Seyer for the second time in eighteen years. Kat Von D married her ex-husband, Peck, in 2003, according to Nicki Swift, but their marriage did not work out. As a result, Kat Von D divorced Peck in August 2007.
The tattoo artist, however, did not remain alone for long, since she married drummer Alex Orbison the following year. Their romance, however, ended before it could progress.
Kat Von D dated famed Motley Crue drummer Nikki Sixx for two years after her breakup with Orbison, followed by her love connection with reality TV celebrity Jesse James. After becoming engaged to one other in January 2011, the couple took things a step further. Even though they had been together for a long time, their relationship took a drastic turn after they exchanged engagement rings.

Shortly after being engaged, the ex-couple announced their breakup. A month later, their relationship was back on track. However, the former couple’s engagement was called off permanently the next month.
Joel Zimmerman, better known as Deadmau5, is a well-known electronic music producer and a professional DJ that Kat Von D dated openly prior to her engagement with her current spouse. The ex-couple first met in 2012 and began dating in 2013. Her relationship with the well-known musician, though, was sporadic. In June 2013, their relationship came to an end.
