Fans of Marilyn Manson were so infuriated when he embarked on a romance with dancer Dita Von Teese, they sent a barrage of death threats to the brunette beauty.

Shock rocker Manson, who is now engaged to the burlesque star, has a large number of faithful followers who were far from thrilled to learn their idol had a new woman in his life.

Von Teese tells BLENDER magazine, "For a long time, I got hate mail from his fans, saying I wasn't good enough for their God.

"I got the same email from different girls: 'He comes to me in my dreams, we're meant to be together.' People have threatened to kill me."
