Marilyn Manson dating Evan Rachel Wood?

I really don’t know much about Evan Rachel Wood apart from the fact that she was supposedly dating Ed Norton this spring, but the 19 year-old actress is said to be dating recently separated 38 year-old shock rocker Marilyn Manson. Ed Norton is 36, so she must go for older weird guys:

Rocker Marilyn Manson is romantically involved with 19-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood, sources close to the situation tell PEOPLE.

The sources say his relationship with the Thirteen actress was a factor in the Dec. 29 divorce filing by Von Teese, 34, Manson’s wife of one year.

“Dita is heartbroken, she didn’t see this coming,” says a source close to the burlesque dancer and MAC cosmetics model. “His partying contributed to the split as well.”

Manson, 38, and Wood have been friends for some time. According to his official website, Manson first met Wood when he asked her to be in his upcoming horror film, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll.

If Manson was cheating with a 19 year-old that’s cold. Still, I have such inexplicable contempt for Dita that I suspect that this just isn’t true and that someone in her camp leaked the story to make Manson look bad. It seems like all the news that’s come out about their divorce has been strictly in her favor. Maybe she is the one getting shafted in this relationship, but since she’s the person that filed the papers yet all the gossip rags paint Manson as the guilty party it seems that there’s something quite calculated about the way she’s handling it.

There may be something to this story, though. Manson opened a Hollywood art gallery on Halloween of last year. Among the art by Manson displayed was a huge watercolor of a close-up portrait of Evan Rachel Wood. Wood and Manson met when he asked her to be in his planned horror film Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll.

    You know, I’ve been hearing about this supposed Phantasmagoria movie for a couple of years now. It looks to me like uses it as his in to engage teenaged models and clamp them into his little “next” camp. Lily Cole, for example. I wonder if the movie will ever actually materialize.

    I don’t love Dita, but whooo — escape Dita! get somebody more normal. While I admire him intellectually, he has gone to places I don’t even wanna know about.

    Dita is a dip stick. MM is a creative genius. While I do not favor his music or his methods, I do recognize that he is talented. DVT just used him to get attention. After she leaves him she will be looking for her next meal ticket / celebrity to pump up her value. Face it, she’s basically a stripper slut whore. MM is better off without her and thank god that they did not procreate!

  3. jess says:

    well she does kinda look like dita w/o out all the horrendous pale makeup…

  4. Toubrouk says:

    Dita is just a dumb girl. She married MM knowing he’s a freak and expected a family and children with him? Let’s be honnest here; is there someone on this blog who see MM as husband material? He’s the ultimate Goth with FAKE TITS! She should had knew better.

    Saying that Dita is a victim is an error. Do anyone could had cared for her “Fringe Stripper” show if she din’t had MM’s spotlight next to her?

    Celebrities… Gotta love them! 😉

    There should be a rule: if a man wears 10 times more makeup than you do, don’t date him. Friends? Sure. That would be fun. Enjoy him, maybe admire him, have fun hanging out? Fantastic.

    But don’t date or marry him. I like MM as a person, but seriously, isn’t that sad evil clown makeup shtick over?

  6. Bex says:

    I never thought I’d see the day where Marilyn Manson was on/in gossip mags. It just seems so..

  7. Bex says:

    Weird. (sorry)

  8. ertarox says:

    I think he’s a genius, and she’s just an UGLY stripper whore, totally. What is the attraction? Sure, he’s not cute but at least he’s smart and witty and makes a good living mocking society. It’s like me getting paid to blog this shit. He’s our hero.

  9. Domidroid says:

    Creative Genius??? He got famous singing some else’s song! I’ve seen his show, there’s nothing original about it. Sure, it impresses 15-yr-olds, who don’t know anything about King Black Acid, Iggy pop, or the old Black Sabbath, who’s imagery he draws from heavily…
    Anyway, it sucks that after spending so much time making Dita into a vehicle for his bizarre vision, he’s got to start all over with a high-schooler. But that’s the trouble with fashionable non-conformity; shallow, shallow, shallow,But on the bright side, at least he wont be dragged to anymore of those silly fashion shows the Mrs. so favours…

  10. Pecarrie says:

    Oh thats so sad- I feel for Dita. But my word is for Evan: if he dates you as the ‘other’ woman, there will be another ‘woman’ once he dates YOU- you can never feel so special that men will behave because of you– he has to be good before you date him….
    anyway… how upsetting

  11. just me says:

    He’s a perv just like edward. They could be her daddy’s. That’s just nasty. If she atleast had a womenly shape, then I could maybe understand but she has the body of an 11yr old that’s just sick!!! I be they have a collection of child porn. OLD dirty men!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Domidroid says:

    What’s wrong with feeling special?
    An actual man has a personal code, and doesn’t waste time with women he doesn’t respect. A man who can be “prettily persuaded”, isn’t much of a man.

  13. Bitch Please says:

    Don’t imply that Edward Norton is weird! =( Oh, well. But I don’t think the reports about them dating were true. Gawker was the only place that had unsubstantiated eyewitnesses, but there were no photos.

  14. alexi says:

    oh gosh. I do like his painting tho. I think he’s nuts but talented. GOOD OL scarlett ohara DITA married him to be part of hollywood plain and simple. YAH he is going to sit around and have picnics – pass the absinthe…..does anyone know if she had a prenup????

  15. Anne (in Reno) says:

    I am inexplicably fond of Dita von Teese, she is very well spoken and articulate in interviews. I think she is an artist in her own way, as cheesy as that sounds, and I hope she comes out of this on top. MM always makes me think of that Onion article “Marilyn Manson Now Going Door-to-door Trying to Scare People”. He tries so hard but so many have done it better already.

  16. until we die says:

    id believe that lindsay lohan story before i believe this!wood’s rep takes it as though its just a silly rumor and a rumor it is!

  17. Mystery says:

    Ugly stripper whore?? What planet are you from? Such harsh UGLY words.
    I’m glad she’s seen the light and left that freak.

  18. Erin says:

    Eh…ERW isn’t attarctive. She has no boobs and probably has hasn’t grown pubes yet. In pictures, DTV and Brian looked great together…ERW and Brian…ewww. But I don’t like Dita…no one knew her until she married him and now that she’s in some magazines, she’s outta there. And whenever she’s mentioned ther’s always ‘she’s married to Marilyn Manson,’ somewhere in the article.

  19. JM says:

    don’t fuckin diss Edward. If any of you idiots actually believe those 2 dated, think again. it’s all crazy bullshit gossip. EN is completely private about his romantic life, and from what i know his companion at the moment isn’t even a celebrity.

    Ha Ha. I find that find that kind of funny. Evan Rachel Wood has been dating Jamie Bell ever since 2005 so I don’t know if this is true or not…

  22. missy says:

    your right! her and jamie are still together. she says it in february’s instyle uk that she is dating the billy elliot star. so does that mean this wasn’t true?? stupid people!

  23. artimis says:

    if she’s seeing him i don’t like her anymore at all yuk

  24. pancake says:

    actually dita was already well known on the burlesque route before she met MM. I think thats how they met up actually. She’s an entrepreneur and already paid for all her very expensive costumes and props out of her own pocket before she hooked up with MM.

    I don’t know much about MM so i won’t say anything about him. But Dita is a very talented and strong woman. Evan is a child. I think she’s talented but she didn’t do everything on her own. Her parents and agents helped her out. So in the end, I have more respect for Dita who did everything on her own.

  25. Alyssa says:

    Ok well for starters to call Dita a whore because she is a burlesque performer is totally and utterly ridiculous. As is calling Manson a genius. Throwing the strong terms around a little too quickly aren’t we? As far as i’m concerned, Evan Rachel Wood is a teenage girl who has seen an opportunity to elevate herself and has grabbed it (much to her detriment, as this has not gone down well with most) and Manson is just a typical male skidding towards forty who is desperately seeking someone or something to help him cling to his youth. Or at least to the days he wore leather pants. He can accuse Dita of trying to change him. However he allowed himself to be changed. That shows true weakness. The fact that Dita has been able to walk away from all this garbage with minimal comment is what makes her a real woman. Chin up love.

  26. WHAT!!!??? says:

    Minimal commenting???What??? That girl has done nothing in interviews BUT hint around how she was cheated in this relationship!! A real women would say NOTHING, not “minimal”!
    And Ditz WAS NOT well known before they started dating, she may have had a good career before Manson, but she WAS NOT a celebrity until Manson and her started dating. I have no beef with Dita whatsoever, but to say all that crap that was said is just laughable!
    As far as this little afair, it doesn’t suprise me at all. Marilyn Manson lives up to his name, this must be the “Marilyn” side at the end of the day because everyone loves to read about scandals and what not, especially in the sixty’s when Monroe and Kennedy were getting it on. Doesn’t that ell you what this poses for?? Publicity with a Lewis Carroll imitation for the icing. I’m not in the least bit shocked, but I am disappointed as a MM fan, I thought he was better than that.
    Sober the hell up, Brian!
