Marilyn Manson has confirmed he's found a new soul mate in actress Evan Rachel Wood following his split from wife Dita Von Teese.
In the wake of the release date of his upcoming record, Marilyn Manson comes clean about his relationship with new girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood. Hollywood's most kept-secret is no longer an unconfirmed speculation when the rocker spills the bean on his romance with the just 19-years-old actress, telling France's Le Parisien newspaper they started having an affair while he was still married to Dita Von Teese.
Justifying his being in love with his much junior, Manson who is 38, tells the newspaper, "I've found my double, my twin, with my new girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood. She's 19 and certainly that's very young, but that's not a problem for me. She likes the same things as me. She understands I like to get up when night falls and go to sleep at dawn."
Of his relationship with Von Teese, the rocker says, "Our relationship ended at Halloween. I was completely destroyed psychologically. I'd rented a house and begun working on this disc, which sort of tells everything that happened to me during the past year." He goes on adding, "I was married to someone who wanted me to change. Become more adult, more responsible. I began not to like myself, not like what I do. I lost my identity. Everything began collapsing around me."
His ongoing divorce from Dita, 34, has become an inspiration for Manson's upcoming album though. Now that he's dating Wood, no need for the star to worry that she will ask him to become more adult, not anytime soon at least.
