Divorce turned Dita celibate

Burlesque dancer Dita von Teese has claimed that her divorce from Marilyn Manson put her off sex for a year.

After marrying in 2005, the pair divorced a year later - an act that reportedly radically changed her outlook on relationships.

"After the divorce I was going through complete heartbreak. It changes you. I spent the first year not having sex at all, which was strange as I still continued to convey sex in my work," she told the News of the World.

The raunchy dancer said that she did not feel ready to be with another partner and did not have the desire.

"I needed to get the past out of my system and to listen to my emotions", she added.

After her divorce from the Goth rocker, Dita also revealed that her taste in men has changed and she claims to have ditched the leather trousers and eyeliner types for nice guys in sweaters.
