Marilyn Manson "still pines" for Dita Von Teese.
The goth rocker hasn't recovered from the 2006 breakdown of his marriage to the burlesque performer, despite subsequently dating 21-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood.
Manson - who is now said to be romancing 24-year-old model and photographer Isani Griffith - was overheard speaking about Dita at his first solo art exhibition, which includes a watercolour painting of his ex-wife.
One guest at the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition revealed to the New York Daily News newspaper: "Marilyn was saying he 'still pines for Dita' but is 'extremely angry that she took the dog'."
Manson's collection also features three paintings called 'Isani'.
Although the 39-year-old musician admits his companion was the inspiration, he refused to confirm they are romantically involved.
He said: "I really don't want to start the next chapter of my life by burdening someone with being the solution to my problems."
