Marilyn Manson turned 38 on Friday January 5th. Sad to say that he probably celebrated it alone as his wife, model and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, is seeking a divorce.
Von Teese, whose real name is Heather Sweet, cites irreconcilable differences for the split in papers filed on December 29 in Los Angeles Superior Court. The break-up was first reported by the New York Post on Friday.
Von Teese and Manson tied the knot at a star-studded wedding ceremony in Ireland on November 28, 2005. They then separated on Christmas Eve. It was the first marriage for both, and they have no children.
