Von Teese Is Not Von Pleased

From the "Not Very Surprising File" comes word from Page Six that burlesque star Dita von Teese is about to serve her husband Marilyn Manson with divorce papers:
SHOCK-rocker Marilyn Manson is about to get one of the biggest shocks of his bizarre life - his stunning stripper-wife, Dita Von Teese, is dumping him after only a year of marriage.

Page Six has learned that the pasty-faced Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, will be served with divorce papers today at a Los Angeles recording studio where he's working on his next album, with Von Teese citing "irreconcilable differences" in giving him the boot.

Sources say the raven-haired bombshell filed for the split right before Christmas, but Manson has been unaware of it because she couldn't get in touch with him.

"He's not been responsive," a friend said. "She loved him so much, but he has too many demons. He can't even communicate with her at this point. She tried to tell him she was divorcing him, but she can't even get him on the phone. She moved out of the house and he hasn't even noticed."

Friends say Manson had been boozing heavily last year, much to Von Teese's dismay, but she'd desperately tried to hold on. "She really tried to make this work," the friend said.

Call me old-fashioned, but I think it's kind of tacky to tell Page Six about your impending divorce before your husband knows about it. On the other hand, he is Marilyn Manson. I wonder if she had to sign a pre-nup? Stay tuned. This is going to get ugly, I just know it. Huzzah!

I could never understand what Dita saw in him. He's a freak and a weirdo, while she is absolutely gorgeous. It works for Ric Ocasek and Paulina, but obviously not for these two.
