We realize calling Marilyn Manson weird is akin to terming Britney Spears a train wreck these days. How much more obvious do we want to be here?
Nevertheless, you may not believe this recent piece of celebrity news.
Manson's keyboard player has filed a lawsuit claiming that the shock rocker squandered their band's earnings on "sick and disturbing purchases of Nazi memorabilia and taxidermy, including the skeleton of a young Chinese girl."
Well, okay then. Keyboardist Stephen "Pogo" Bier also accuses Marilyn Manson of splurging on a multimillion-dollar home, an engagement ring for Dita Von Teese, as well as the couple's lavish wedding in Ireland.
Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese filed for divorce earlier this year.
According to the New York Post, Bier accuses the 38-year-old Manson (real name Brian Warner) and his "musketeers" (his business manager, lawyer and the band's manager) of assisting Manson "in filching millions of dollars the band made over the years."
Somehow in there, he got tired of seeing Dita Von Teese nude. For her part, Von Teese, 34, is still recovering from the couple's very public split in January after a year of marriage.
Yes, that's Dita Von Teese nude. Marilyn is a moron.
Shortly after the burlesque star filed for divorce in January, Manson began dating (rather controversially) the 19-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood.
Von Teese says that she was disappointed that her ex chose to speak about the end of their marriage and his love for Wood while doing press for his new album.
"It was hard," a dejected Dita tells RadarOnline in an interview. "I never expected it. It's unfortunate to have my divorce exploited for record sales."
As for his take on the issue? In an interview with France's Le Parisien newspaper, Marilyn Manson said of Dita Von Teese:
"I was married to someone who wanted me to change. Become more adult, more responsible. I began not to like myself, not like what I do. I lost my identity."
Harsh! Radar asked Dita Von Teese if she thought some of Manson's frank remarks about their history were blown out of proportion by the press.
"I don't think it was the press," Von Teese said. "It was a matter of, â€˜Hey, maybe you shouldn't drink absinthe and do cocaine and do interviews all at the same time.' ... It was drinking and interviewing."
