Deadmau5 Proposes To Girlfriend On Twitter

Who says romance is dead...

With their sometimes eccentric fashion and quirky behaviour celebrities aren't always known for doing things normally.

But music producer and DJ Deadmau5, who has been known to get into the odd war of words with Madonna in the past, may have set a new level of oddness.

The musician took a risk by proposing to his tattoo artist girlfriend Kat Von D on Twitter on this weekend - and she said yes!

He tweeted: "I can't wait for Christmas so... Katherine Von Drachenberg, will you marry me?"

He then attached a picture of the ring he plans to give to his now fiancee, captioning the image with the words: "Changing the diamond to a black diamond FYI. Sorry for the jpg... they'll finish the actual ring soon I hope."

And it appears the DJ, real name Joel Zimmerman, may have been a tad nervous about proposing in such an unconventional way.

After Kat said "yes", he tweeted: "Holy f**king s**t. I'm engaged and stuff!"

Congratulatory messages soon flooded in from fans prompting him to thank his devotees following the couple's happy news.

He wrote: "Thanks for the well wishes and support from the horde and everyone else. BRB while I spend the rest of my evening with my future wife :)"

The couple split last month but soon rekindled their romance after a short time apart.
