Excerpts from old Dita Von Teese interviews regarding her ex-husband

Recently, Dita Von Teese released the following statement:

“I have been processing the news that broke Monday regarding Marilyn Manson. 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.

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 realize yourself.

This is my sole statement on this matter. Thank you for respecting this request.”

However, old interviews have been found and discussed in a recent Reddit thread where Dita alluded to pretty troubling details to a prior relationship, thought to be her marriage to MM.

From the Irish Examiner in 2007:
"Maybe not someone who is 'nice' - that isn't really the word - but someone who says please and thank you, is even-tempered and doesn't break all the windows in the house. That would be cool."

And from Genlux Magazine in 2010, when Dita was dating The Count, she stated:

“He took me to his family’s castle and I was completely wooed and couldn’t speak for days. He thought there was something wrong with me because I was so in shock that someone could treat me so well. I was used to people hurling things at me in the middle of the night in a cocaine rage. So to be in this castle and have this man cooking for me… I was stunned into silence.”

Also mentioned in an article from The Irish Independent, also in 2007, Dita said the following:
"A week before she left, Dita had started to look for a new home when, she says, she heard 'some revelations'. She continues: 'I thought: 'Wow, I've got to get out of here.' Women's intuition is a real thing. Then suddenly you have to see the facts. Then decided and thought: 'Well, you know, I had taken a lot of abuse. It hasn't always been easy but this time I am asking myself how much more am I going to take?'"

Dita has become friends with MM since 2016, and has even been seen with him and his new spouse (married in 2020), Lindsay Usich, at fashion shows. Since becoming friends again, Dita has brushed past the problems she discussed above and speaks warmly of him now and how he encouraged her eccentricities.

All OP can think is "...¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
