When: 2006 – 2007
It’s hard to explain Marilyn Manson—much less his actions—but in this instance it was a simple case of "guy divorcing wife to be with much younger girl." Manson married burlesque Dita Von Teese in December 2005. Around the same time, he met and subsequently took an interest in upcoming Thirteen actress Evan Rachel Wood. By December 2006, Von Teese wanted out of the marriage and filed for divorce, citing Manson’s relationship with Wood as one of the main factors in her decision.
"I was married to someone who wanted me to change," Manson told Le Parisien. In January 2007, Manson had already moved on with Wood, who was 19 years old at the time. Manson even popped the question in January 2010 despite their on-again-off-again history. The two predictably split for good later that same year.
