The elegant Dita Von Teese’s marriage to goth rocker Marilyn Manson came as something of a surprise.
But it seems that she’s turned her back on the shock singer type as the divorcee stepped out with a real gentleman – a count no less.
Burlesque dancer Dita, 36, arrived at Paris airport with French boyfriend and aristocrat, Count Louis Marie de Castelbajac, the son of fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
At just 25 years old, the actor is 11 years her junior.
Dita and her new beau were recently spotted at the Coachella Music Festival.
A source told the New York Post: ‘We’re all shocked they’re together. She’s really robbing the cradle.’
Arm-in-arm as they waited in the airport, Louis took charge of the luggage, as Dita busied herself with little more than her handbag.
The tall, suave Frenchman looked unruffled as he hoisted the luggage around, before they exited the airport to spend a romantic evening together.
The couple dined at Tchiou restaurant and then visited the Eiffel Tower before eating ice cream at Parisian patisserie Carette.
Svelte Dita enjoyed the experience so much that she even got a takeaway.
On her Twitter page, the burlesque star said she has been away for a month.
And she tweeted: ‘A new favourite thing to do while in France – drive a golf cart around the gardens of Versailles! Next time, I’m trying the boats….!’
The former Mrs Manson let her strict LA style diet go as she ate bread, butter and honey.
And she appeared to find the French breakfast a bit of a struggle.
She tweeted: ‘Ordered the “healthy breakfast” from room service.
‘Egg whites. Great. But who’s the joker who put this big flaky croissant on my tray too?!?!’
Later a picture posted on her Twitter page showed the croissant on the balcony floor.
Dita was married to rocker Marilyn Manson in 2005 but she filed for divorce a year later.
She said at the time: ‘I wasn’t supportive of his partying or his relationship with another girl. As much as I loved him I wasn’t going to be part of that.’
