Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is speaking out against her estranged husband - a man who recently told Rolling Stone magazine that he was in a "black hole of depression" during their two-year marriage.

We're talking, of course, about the incomparable Marilyn Manson.

Swine Flu Victim

In the latest issue of The Daily Telegraph, Dita Von Teese shares her reaction to Manson's interview in which he described the demise of their union - he bitterly says he won't give her a dime - and falling for his new love, 19-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood.

Von Teese calls Manson's relationship with Evan Rachel Wood "inappropriate," but says she's moving on. Here are some highlights from the interview ...

On the collapse of her marriage to Marilyn Manson:
"I had all the faith in the world in our relationship for the seven years we were together. I loved him very much, and completely believed it would be forever... Everything went downhill after we got married. I started working a lot to escape my home life."

On trying to help Manson:
"It was difficult, because I was trying to get him help for his problems, and eventually I realized that he didn't want help. I wasn't supportive about his partying or his relationship with another girl, and as much as I loved him I wasn't going to be part of that."

On Manson's recent Rolling Stone interview:
"He says how depressed he was. I get the impression he thinks I was unsupportive. But the truth is I wasn't supportive of his lifestyle, and someone else came along who was ... It didn't work. Instead, it made me the enemy."

On moving out on Christmas Eve:
"I left with nothing. I knew that there was an inappropriate relationship going on in it, and I didn't want any part of it around to remind me. I didn't want that sofa. I didn't want that bed. I didn't want the knife you read about in the article."

THG NOTE: It can't help knowing that Manson has since called Wood his true soul mate.

Just when we were beginning to think Marilyn Manson dating Evan Rachel Wood wasn't all that weird... okay, sorry, we were never thinking that for a second.

But envisioning them together is even creepier now, thanks to Evan Rachel Wood's apparent transformation... into Manson's sultry ex-wife, Dita Von Teese.

It appears as if Wood, 19, is trying awfully hard to meet Marilyn Manson's lofty expectations. Check out this comparison of the women of Manson: 

Oh yeah. If this keeps up, Wood (left) and Katie Holmes might have to get together and start a brainwashed babes of Hollywood support group. But at least she and Marilyn Manson (a.k.a. Brian Warner) seem happy together for now.

Which Manson better half do you prefer? Personally, we're a little biased, having gotten a glimpse of Dita Von Teese nude. Only Marilyn Manson truly has the background and experience to make an informed choice.

He dated Rose McGowan at one point, too. The guy's a player!

Marilyn Manson split with his wife, Dita Von Teese, late last year. Maybe you heard.

But don't worry, fans: the goth shock rocker has already found a new soul mate.

Swine Flu Victim

"I've found my double, my twin, my soul mate, with my new girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood," the 38-year-old rocker tells France's Le Parisien newspaper.

"She's 19 and certainly that's very young," Manson added, "but that's not a problem for me. She likes the same things as me. She understands I like to get up when night falls and go to sleep at dawn."

In that case, we'd think Lindsay Lohan would be a better fit. But alas.

A solo Manson was in Paris for three days to promote his upcoming sixth album, Eat Me, Drink Me (gross).

He said depression and his ongoing divorce from Dita Von Teese inspired the project.

"Our relationship ended at Halloween," he tells the paper.

"I was completely destroyed psychologically. I'd rented a house and begun working on this disc, which sort of tells everything that happened to me during the past year."

Manson - whose real name Brian Warner â€" and Von Teese â€" a.k.a. Heather Sweet - wed in December 2005, and sources say that Manson's relationship with Wood was a factor in Von Teese's decision to file for divorce on December 29.

"I was married to someone who wanted me to change," Marilyn Manson says.

"Become more adult, more responsible. I began not to like myself, not like what I do. I lost my identity. Everything began collapsing around me. The record allowed me to put an end to that. Dita left at Christmas while I was recording."

According to his Web site, Manson first met Wood when he asked her to be in his upcoming horror film, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll.

Manson, who used to see Dita Von Teese nude on a fairly regular basis, says the film, which he directed and which features Wood and British teen model Lily Cole sharing the role of Alice in Wonderland, will be out in October.

Von Teese, who cited "irreconcilable differences" in her filing, recently told People she and Manson "are not friends ... But we don't hate each other or anything."

That's nice. Maybe with the passing of time, they can be on even better terms, the way Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee are progressing in their relationship.

Marilyn Manson's estranged wife, Dita Von Teese, appears nude in the pages of Penthouse this month. Apparently she really needs the money... and is not shy about getting naked.

You could say this Teese is anything but. A tease. Too much? Sorry.

Swine Flu Victim

In any case, the Penthouse spread (and there is a lot of spreading going on, believe us), should offer a glimpse into what Marilyn Manson is missing...

Not that he cares. Since splitting from Dita, he's taken up with Evan Rachel Wood, a barely-legal cutie and the last person we'd ever think would end up with Manson.

Mandy Moore would be a close second. Her or Rose McGowan. Oh wait, never mind.

Unlike Kevin Federline and Britney Spears, who have worked out an amicable divorce settlement, the dissolution of the Manson-Von Teese nuptials is already getting ugly.

Specifically, the goth shock rocker won't give her a dime. That's for damn sure. What's less certain is whether he picks up this month's Penthouse. Odds are he does.

Just two weeks after Dita Von Teese filed for divorce from Marilyn Manson, the goth "rocker" and certified freak is trying to make luscious Dita's financial life a living hell.

According to court documents obtained by our friends at TMZ, the man who looks like he belongs in a J.K. Rowling novel asked the courts to block any future claim by Von Teese for spousal support.

In their impending divorce case, which makes the split between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline appear civil and downright normal, Marilyn also wants Dita to pay for her own lawyers.

The former lovers aren't seeing eye-to-eye on the date of their breakup, either. Marilyn Manson claims they split on Halloween, while Von Teese claims they broke up two months later on Christmas Eve.

They are both blaming the split on "irreconcilable differences," though, so at least there's some common ground for them to work with.

Manson and Von Teese celebrated their nuptials with a star-studded wedding ceremony in Ireland in December of 2005. Keanu Reeves, Lisa Maria Presley and Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne were among the guests.

The couple has no children. Since separating from Von Teese, Manson has naturally taken up with barely-legal actress Evan Rachel Wood. Now that's a relationship built to last.

Romances involving Marilyn Manson have never been ordinary. Then again, nothing about Marilyn Manson could be deemed normal.

Remember then-girlfriend Rose McGowan's see-thru dress at the 1998 VMAs? And his goth wedding to Dita Von Teese at an Irish castle last year?

We don't, but a lot of people who actually follow Manson's career surely do. In any event, months before his marriage to Von Teese crumbled (she filed for divorce late last month), Manson's love life took a turn for the ... young.

It seems that the one-eyed "singer" has his eye fixed firmly on 20-year-old starlet Evan Rachel Wood, most famous for her roles in Thirteen and the TV series Once and Again.

Wood was clearly the center of his attention at a Beverly Hills house party on January 5, celebrating the musician's 38th birthday.

"They were like an old married couple," a source tells Us Weekly, which broke the story. "She was always right next to him and so attentive."

After opening gifts (which included a live scorpion), Manson led Wood and pals into a room to listen to songs from his next album. "Evan was really into it," says the source, "like she was possessed by his genius."

That speaks for itself, doesn't it?

A rep for Wood, however, maintains the couple, which met when Manson was considering casting the actress to star in his upcoming movie, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll, are just pals.

"Their friendship grew out of Evan's admiration for Marilyn as an artist," says the representative.

THG NOTE: The term artist is certainly used loosely these days. Not unlike rocker, actress or even music producer (talking to you, J.R. Rotem).

To illustrate what a wonderful couple they make, here are some nice pictures of Manson and Wood. Aren't they just adorable? They're like Jessica Biel and Derek Jeter. Only not at all.


According to a Manson source, he was with the actress in L.A. as far back as September 28, which, not coincidentally, is Dita Von Tesse's birthday.

Von Teese issued the following statement: "Sadly, the reports of our marital difficulties are true. I ask for your consideration and understanding during this painful and private time."

Sorry, Dita, but we make our living at this stuff. There's no hiding from it now. All you can do is hope for some Paris Hilton pussy sightings to deflect our attention.
