Rocker Marilyn Manson takes male interest in his fetish star girlfriend Dita Von Teese as a compliment - because jealousy would rip their relationship apart.

The GOLDEN AGE OF GROTESQUE singer decided he must force himself to control feelings of anger toward the PLAYBOY star's male fans when he started dating her.

He says, "I've never had a problem with that from the beginning. If I did it would have been an unsuccessful relationship.

"I have to deal with guys getting off over her. I think it would have been a little harder to deal with if she was a porn star, and I've dated a few in my time.

"Is it hard to maintain a relationship with a porn star? You just try to maintain an erection."
