Marilyn Manson’s ex-wife Dita Von Teese has issued a statement regarding the disturbing abuse allegations that were leveled against him by Evan Rachel Wood and several other women. Von Teese says that the “details made public do not match [her] personal experience” with the singer, while also adding that “abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship.”
Von Teese said the following:
“I have been processing the news that broke Monday regarding Marilyn Manson.
To those who have expressed your concern 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 not have 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 who 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.”
In other news, TMZ are also reporting that police showed up at Manson’s house last night (February 3) to conduct a welfare check on him. The site said the following about that:
“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they received a call Wednesday for a welfare check by someone who said they hadn’t heard from the singer and were worried something may have happened to him.
We’re told several officers hit the Hollywood Hills home and made several attempts to get Manson to come and speak with them to no avail. At one point, an LAPD helicopter circled overhead, shining a spotlight onto the property.
Our sources say Manson never answered, but after some time, cops were able to get in touch with a rep for the singer who said everything was fine, and that Manson simply didn’t want to come out … cops left shortly after.”
