Poor, macabre Marilyn Manson. He's getting divorced from the seemingly normal burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.
Here's a shocker: Von Teese filed paperwork for the divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. Tabloids speculate Manson's alcoholism contributed to the marital problems.
The couple married in December 2005.
In related news, it seems guitar legend Eddie Van Halen is getting hitched. At least, that's what it says on his girlfriend's MySpace page. As a non-MySpace user, I don't know what to make of the official "announcement" except that I find it more than coincidental that the day after the posting, Eddie selected a new publicist to handle media requests and the upcoming 2007 "reunion tour."
Ah, the life of rockstars...
