Marilyn Manson's estranged wife Dita Von Teese suffered most when their one-year marriage collapsed, because she didn't understand him, the rocker insists.
The burlesque dancer filed for divorce last December (06), just 12 months after marrying Manson.
The Antichrist Superstar hitmaker - now dating actress Evan Rachel Wood - says, "I think that somebody's always going to suffer more. And I think I hurt her more. But only because she didn't understand the amount of pain I went through before it became apparent to her.
"She didn't understand that my idea of the relationship was suffering for longer than she knew. And so things were ended equally between us, she might have assumed that I didn't care. Not realising that I had been experiencing it for much longer."
