A juicy, celeb-gossip story always attracts a lot of attention. But readers hoping for catfight tales and bitter quotes would be sorely disappointed by the recent break-up between actress Evan Rachel Wood and goth singer Marilyn Manson.
Wood also denied several internet rumors that the two split up because of a fight over her brother Ira.
"Manson and I both decided to take some time apart so we could concentrate on work. Someone used that opportunity to kick us while we were down and sell a completely false story," the actress told People Magazine.
Rumors had circulated that Ira had lived with the couple but was kicked out by Manson, resulting in a bitter fight between Evan and Marilyn. However, the 21-year-old actress said that her brother has never lived in Manson's house.
"You know, it's not the nasty thing everybody thinks it is," she said.
