Teese and Rajcevich keep their love life private, but she once revealed that she was not ready to get married again and would prefer to show her commitment to their relationship in other ways. Teese said:

"I felt like I already had my big showbiz wedding thing [...] What I learned from my last engagements and marriage is that the most romantic part is being engaged and telling someone you want to be with them for the rest of your life."

Teese married Manson on December 3, 2005, after they had dated for one year. One year later, she left her marital home and filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, and they finalized their divorce on December 29, 2007.

DID ADAM RAJCEVICH AND DITA VON TEESE HAVE CHILDREN?

The couple does not have any children yet. Teese, one of the many celebrities who love Oprah Winfrey, used the talk show host as an example. She said:

"At this stage in life, especially considering the state of the world, I don't feel regret. Oprah Winfrey didn't have children – I keep going back to that fact! I love to travel, I love being free, I love showbiz."

The lingerie designer further explained that she feels like she has a lot of love in her life with her pets, family, boyfriend, and friends. Teese had come to terms with her decisions and would live with them regardless.

However, the burlesque dancer admitted that she envied her friends and acquaintances who had children. But her sister assured Teese that she would be godmother to her nephews. She does not think she will regret her decision to remain childless and will probably be that old lady with dogs, cats, birds, and rabbits.

ABOUT DITA VON TEESE

Teese was born Heather Renée Sweet in working-class rural Michigan to a machinist father and a manicurist mother on September 28, 1972. Growing up, she aspired to be a stylist for period films and began classical ballet training at a young age.

At 13, she performed a solo for a local ballet company. After high school, she attended college, where she studied historical costuming. Later, Teese trained as a costume designer and designed her own photoshoots.

The model and author of "Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese" soon became a pin-up girl and chose the name Dita to honor the silent film actress Dita Parlo. In 2002, she got her big break after appearing on the cover of Playboy magazine.

After the shoot, the magazine insisted she needed a surname, and she told them Von Treese, a name she got from the phone book. However, Playboy omitted the 'r' in her surname, and the model went with it.

Teese's fame grew in no time, and she married — then divorced — actor and heavy metal artist Brian Warner, famously known as Marilyn Manson. He was the one who photographed her Playboy cover.
