Marilyn Manson bans his sexy girlfriend Dita Von Teese from sitting near anyone she admires at celebrity events - because he's terrified she'll strike up close relationships with other men.

The burlesque dancer refuses to reveal her secret showbiz fantasies, because she's scared the TAINTED LOVE singer will find out and explode in a jealous rage.

And Manson's insecurities are so intense, he furiously loses his temper whenever he discovers she mingled with her favourite male musicians and film stars.

Von Teese says, "I can't think of anyone else I would want to sleep with. I'll never hear the end of it.

"Manson is a very jealous person. I mentioned that I liked Franz Ferdinand and he just got furious. He was saying I'd better not sit next to them."
