Marilyn Manson "still pines" for his ex-wife Dita Von Teese, it has been claimed
Marilyn Manson "still pines" for Dita Von Teese.
The goth rocker hasn't recovered from the 2006 breakdown of his marriage to the burlesque performer, despite subsequently dating 21-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood.
Manson - who is now said to be romancing 24-year-old model and photographer Isani Griffith - was overheard speaking about Dita at his first solo art exhibition, which includes a watercolour painting of his ex-wife.
One guest at the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition revealed to the New York Daily News newspaper: "Marilyn was saying he 'still pines for Dita' but is 'extremely angry that she took the dog'."
Manson's collection also features three paintings called 'Isani'.
Although the 39-year-old musician admits his companion was the inspiration, he refused to confirm they are romantically involved.
He said: "I really don't want to start the next chapter of my life by burdening someone with being the solution to my problems."
