MANSON's Estranged Wife: 'I Tried To Get Him Help And He Chose Not To Change His Lifestyle'

Marilyn Manson's estranged wife Dita von Teese recently gave an interview to the Toronto Star in which she discussed her split with the shock rocker and Manson's new video for "Heart-Shaped Glasses", featuring Marilyn in a love scene with his new girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood. An excerpt from the chat follows:

Toronto Star: What is the most insulting thing you've ever read about yourself?

Dita: (Laughs) I guess the most insulting thing I've read is that I married for money because I didn't. Didn't make a dime. Didn't plan to. Didn't want to.

Toronto Star: Are you officially divorced?

Dita: Not at all. (Laughs) We're officially still married.

Toronto Star: Any reaction to your ex's new music video "Heart-Shaped Glasses", featuring Marilyn in a raunchy love scene with his new girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood?

Dita: I have not seen it. I know a lot of people are shocked by it and think I should be shocked but he has put every one of his girlfriends in his videos so it doesn't come as any surprise to me. I was in three videos. Rose McGowan was in two videos.

Toronto Star: Did you two grow apart?

Dita: I wouldn't say growing apart. He's been very vocal about his depression and drug use ... I tried to get him help and he chose not to change his lifestyle and not to get better. And found someone ... (pauses) I think he decided to surround himself with people who want to live that lifestyle as well.

Toronto Star: Are you dating now?

Dita: No, I'm not. I went on a few dates and had a little fun. My first priority is work and having a good time and spending time with my friends and family. I want to be a single girl for a while.
