Dita Von Teese is opening up about her experience with Marilyn Manson, who she was briefly married to in the early 2000s.
The 48-year-old burlesque dancer and entertainer first thanked “those who have expressed your concerns of my well-being, I appreciate your kindness” before stating that her experience with Marilyn was much different than Evan Rachel Wood‘s.
“Please know that the details made public do not match my personal experience during our 7 years together as a couple,” Dita wrote. “Had they, I would have not married him in December 2005. I left 12 months later due to infidelity and drug abuse.”

The abuse accusations against Marilyn were brought to light once again after Evan named the musician as her abuser over the weekend.
“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years,” she wrote on her Instagram page. “…I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
After her accusations, Marilyn was dropped by many his record label, television show American Gods and even his talent agency. An FBI Investigation was also opened on the matter.
Rose McGowan, another of Marilyn‘s exes, spoke out about the accusations earlier this week.
