Kat Von D

Threatens 'Ink' Producers Over Nikki Sixx

10/22/2010 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kat Von D just went nuclear on the producers of her reality show "L.A. Ink" -- threatening a legal war over several scenes that feature Kat trash-talking her on-again boyfriend Nikki Sixx.

Kat D Von and Nikki Sixx

Sources close to the production tell us ... Kat went ballistic on producers earlier this week when she viewed screeners for upcoming episodes of "Ink" which air on TLC starting Wednesday night ... which contained several scenes featuring Kat going off about her then ex-boyfriend Nikki Sixx.

Here's the problem -- the footage was shot a while ago, while Kat was dating Jesse James ... and back then, she still harbored some ill-feelings toward Nikki.

But now, Kat and Nikki are back together -- and when Kat previewed the footage from the upcoming episodes, which contained the anti-Nikki smack talk, we're told Kat "freaked out."

We're told Kat demanded producers re-edit the show ASAP -- removing all negative Nikki references and killing a storyline involving a "Nikki vs. Jesse" theme ... or else she would file legal papers in an attempt to stop the show dead in its tracks.

In the end -- we're told producers begrudgingly obliged and Kat's comments will never see the light of day.

He doesn't have to hear the exact comments. Nikki knows you were talking sh*t, and that's just as bad.

Early this week on twitter Nikki said about having a bad day and is no longer following Kat on twitter, maybe this explains the why.

I truly don't understand this fasination with Kat, that all these guys like ? Jesse James had Sandra Bullock for god sake's ! And Nikki Sixx can get a model in a drop of a hat. Kat, is ugly there's no 2 ways around it.. and to top it of with all the "Mickey Mouse" tattoo's she has makes me vomit. Not attractive at all and Kat even without all the tattoo's is really not that good looking either. I watched the show a few times to see why all these men, who can get much better see in her..I'm still wondering.

ok, so i am the only one who watches LA Ink more than the people writing comments. I just find the whole show curious and fascinating. Every person on is "what you see is what you get." It is not supposed to be an award-winning program and doesn't pretend to be. I have no tattoos and don't like them, but it is not for me to say someone is a bad person cause they have some...
