Marilyn Manson made the following announcement on Wednesday (December 24) regarding ex-girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood:

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to make an announcement. the rumors that I found a ‘replacement’ for Evan, or that I have a new girlfriend are absolutely not true. I am finishing up my album, and I also have never even met Ne-Yo. I can assure him that he would not want to be associated with something this godless. Get over the holiday so I can happily ruin the new year for anyone that assumed music was going to stay boring and sweet.

Evan Rachel Wood’s Brother Not The Reason Behind Manson Breakup

Evan Rachel Wood spoke out to People magazine about the internet rumors suggesting bitter fights between her and Marilyn Manson about her brother Ira, who was said to have been living with the pair and then was kicked out of his guest house. The 21-year-old actress denied the claims and said Ira had nothing to do with their breakup. “Manson and I both decided to take some time apart so we could concentrate on work,” Wood said. “Someone used that opportunity to kick us while we were down and sell a completely false story. Manson owns the house he lives in. My brother has never stayed there and the person that said such horrible things about Manson being ‘controlling’ and ’emotionally abusive’ is certainly no source ‘close’ to me.”

Marilyn Manson: Tour With Twiggy Will Spawn Another Record

Marilyn Manson tells that watching Led Zeppelin’s reunion was what inspired him to invite Twiggy Ramirez back to the band after a nearly six year absence. “The turning point for me was when I went to see Led Zeppelin’s reunion show, and I saw Jimmy Page and Robert Plant look at each other for a moment, and they probably said, ‘Holy sh**, we wrote ‘Stairway To Heaven’.’ I wanted that look again,” Manson explained. “I want to look at Twiggy and go ‘Holy sh**, we wrote ‘The Beautiful People’.’ I called him and I said ‘Let’s go do this.'”

Manson added that the pair had some unfinished business. “We started music together because we wanted to bring about the apocalypse, and we realized we didn’t finish,” Manson explained. “The world could suffer much more if we were together again, and we really wanted to bring back the suffering.”

While the original announcement was vague as to whether Twiggy would remain on beyond a tour, Manson hopes to write a new album with him eventually. “The concept originally of he and I getting back together was ‘Let’s write some music together,'” Manson told Daniel Kreps. “But life’s too short, and this has to happen now because we couldn’t stand not being on stage with each other, and wouldn’t want to wait until we made another record to tour. So this tour will spawn another record, one hundred percent.”
