Marilyn Manson’s friends have blasted his alleged romance with young actress
Evan Rachel Wood.
Those close to the shock rocker – whose wife Dita Von Teese filed for
divorce after Christmas – say Manson, 38, is suffering from a mid-life
crisis because he has chosen a lover exactly like his estranged wife, just
One friend told People magazine: “It's like he's having a mid-life crisis,
he's with a younger version of Dita."
Manson’s friends say they noticed the striking similarity between the two
women when Wood, 19, turned up for Manson’s birthday party earlier this
month looking just like Dita.
The source added: “She had her hair and make-up done like Dita."
Manson is also said to have received a rather unconventional birthday
present from his new flame, a live scorpion in a cage.
Dita filed for divorce from Manson on December 29, citing “irreconcilable
differences” as the reason for the split.
It has been alleged the burlesque dancer – who had been dating Manson for
seven years before they tied the knot in 2006 – grew tired of his frequent
partying, budding friendship with Lindsay Lohan and his lack of interest in
having a baby.
Marilyn wants a younger version of Dita - perhaps a younger version of himself.
