Dita Von Teese, who was in a relationship with Marilyn Manson for seven years including one year of marriage from 2005 to 2006, has spoken put regarding the abuse allegations levelled at her former husband.
Earlier this week, actor Evan Rachel Wood and four other women accused the American singer of being abusive. Musician Trent Reznor also made a statement condemning the alleged actions of Manson.
Marilyn Manson took to Instagram to make a statement denying the claims strongly, calling them a “distortion of reality.”
Now, Von Teese, the burlesque dancer and model, has also made a public statement, stating: “I have been processing the news that broke Monday regarding Marilyn Manson,” she wrote on her Instagram. “To those who have expressed your concerns of my well-being, I appreciate your kindness.
“Please know that the details made public do not match my personal experience during our 7 years together as a couple. Had they, I would have not married him in December 2005. I left 12 months later due to infidelity and drug abuse.”
Before adding, “Abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship. I urge those of you have incurred abuse to take steps to heal and the strength to fully realise yourself.”
Following the original allegations, Manson was dropped by his record label, Loma Vista, and his forthcoming TV appearances in American Gods and the Creepshow have also been cut. The future remains unclear for the singer who is yet to make any further statements.
