London (ANI): Dita Von Teese, who divorced her rocker hubby Marilyn Manson last year, has revealed that she started stripping for cash while she was still in her teens. The Queen of Burlesque said that she used to labour five or six times a week, and that she minted loads of money with her stripping talent even in her premature days.
"I was working as a go-go dancer in nightclubs just out of high school. I was under age. I was only 18," Showbiz Spy quoted her as saying. "Then I started stripping and I worked five times a week, sometimes six. In the early nineties I was easily making a thousand or $1,500 a night. I was making a lot of money," the model revealed.
