Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has blasted Dita Von Teese's claim his infidelity is to blame for the breakdown of their marriage - insisting he never cheated on his estranged wife throughout their 12 month marriage.
The burlesque dancer filed for divorce from Manson at Christmas (Dec06), citing his "inappropriate relationship" with another woman as her reason for the split.
The musician has since confessed his love for teen actress Evan Rachel Wood, but insists their relationship was strictly platonic up until recently.
He says, "I had no friends and I really was alone, literally. I had developed a friendship with Evan and, yes, she is now my girlfriend but it wasn't me leaving one for another. It took time to discover how much we had in common."
