Deadmau5: I don't earn millions

Deadmau5 has denied having an annual pay of 11 million US dollars.

The Canadian electronic musician, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, came sixth in's list of highest-earning dance music stars, which claimed that he apparently earns around that amount each year.

But Deadmau5 said he doesn't earn anything near that figure, telling at the FutureSound Conference: "After I saw the article, I called my manager and said, 'Yo, what the f***? I'm 9 million short, dude. We gotta talk. Nobody is making that kind of money."

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old also revealed that he has rekindled his romance with tattoo artist Kat Von D, aka Katherine von Drachenberg, who has accompanied him on a trip to London.

He posted a picture of Kat on his Twitter, with the caption: "I'm gunna marry this chick one day," after adding a photo of the pair sitting next to each other.

The couple previously split earlier this month.

"Man... Can't say I didn't give it my best," Kat wrote, followed by: "Clarification: Deadmau5 and I are no longer together."

Deadmau5 admitted: "Going to spend a little while screwing my head back on. i guess im not cut out for relationships right now. and that's all i really want to dwell on it right now. ill figure it out. no hard feelings."

"it happened too fast, i lost my balance and fell into a familiar dark place that im having difficulty with. she deserves someone stronger," he added.
