We are still so confused about this relationship!
Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson (in case you're new, Evan is the girl) have rekindled their romance, and we are frantically searching for bleach to scrub our eyes, because for the love of tiny baby pandas, this is wrong. You may remember that Evan was recently rumored to be dating her True Blood costar Alexander Skarsgard, but has now gone back to the Goth bad place. Noooooo.
Evan and Marilyn began dating toward the end of his marriage to Dita Von Teese in late 2006. It's unclear if she played a role in the end of the marriage, but Marilyn (whom we think we might just start calling "Brian," as that's his real name, just to mess with him) divorced Dita and began turning Evan into a zombie Dita clone, shellacked with pale makeup and aggressively red lips, and did we mention that she was 18 at the time? They broke up last year and reunited a few months later before splitting for good. WE THOUGHT.
Over the summer, Marilyn told Spin magazine that he fantasized about smashing Evan's head with a sledgehammer, which, just for future reference, is not something a normal person dealing with normal breakup issues tells the press. He also dedicated a song on his new album called "I Want to Kill You Like They Do in The Movies" to Evan, and shot a music video for another single, "Running To The Edge Of The World," in which he beats and murders a woman who looks a whole lot like Evan. In case you're reading this from Planet I Have No Perspective On Healthy Relationships, or you’ve just been reading a lot of Twilight lately, this is not okay behavior. Is it ever okay to get back together with an abusive ex?
So, yeah. Marilyn told Metal Hammer magazine (yes, the Metal Hammer magazine) that he and Evan are back together. We think it's creepy and wrong and would like to know what's the matter with that pretty Swedish boy. I bet he never fantasizes about killing you, Evan. And Shane West probably doesn’t either. Even Mickey Rourke probably feels a lot more fatherly than, you know, sledgehammer-y toward you. This is just bad, gross news. And if you've forgotten, Evan is all of 22. Maybe she should try dating a Jonas brother.
