Dita Von Teese recently spoke out about the abuse allegations against her ex-husband Marilyn Manson.

In a Wednesday Instagram statement, Von Teese, a burlesque dancer and lingerie designer, stated that she has been “processing the news” about her former husband. The pair was married briefly from 2005-2006.

“To those who have expressed your concerns of my well-being, I appreciate your kindness,” Von Teese said. “Please know that the details made public do not match my personal experience during our 7 years together. Had they, I would have not married him in December 2005. I left 12 years months later due to infidelity and drug abuse.”

“Abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship. I urge those of you have incurred abuse to take the steps to heal and the strength to fully realize yourself,” she added.

Earlier this week, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood alleged that Manson “horrifically abused” her throughout their relationship.

Manson has stated that Wood’s allegations against him are not true and that his “intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners.”

Manson had also been dropped from his record label, Loma Vista Recordings, and his upcoming appearances on Shudder’s Creepshow and Starz’s American Gods were scrapped.
