Marilyn Manson Gets Engaged to Actress Seraphim Ward
UPDATE (1:56PM): According to Manson’s publicist, the goth rocker is NOT engaged to Ward. Read the full statement here.
Marilyn Manson is off the market. The Antichrist Superstar just got engaged to actress Seraphim Ward. Her rep confirmed the news. How ironic that her name translates to “angel?” Even more surprising is the fact that they’ve been dating for just a few weeks. Only in Brian Warner’s world, right?
According to Life & Style, Manson, 43, reportedly popped the question to Ward, 27, last Thursday (April 12), one night after he performed at the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards with Johnny Depp on guitar. It was a busy week for Manson!
A source told the tabloid that Manson was rather romantic with his proposal, giving his beloved a family heirloom. “Marilyn proposed with a family ring. I think it was his grandmother’s. It’s Celtic, and Seraphim says it has a magical bonding to the receiver. They share an interest in the occult and have bonded fast,” the insider, who is a friend of Ward’s, shared. Ward tweeted about her new status, saying “I am still speechless and in shock.”
The ring isn’t the only thing that Manson, who will issue Born Villain, his eighth studio album, on May 1, gave his wife-to-be. He reportedly bought her a home in the Hollywood Hills, too. M. Manson is a generous man.
Manson previously walked down the aisle with burlesque queen Dita Von Teese. He was also recently engaged to actress Evan Rachel Wood in an on/off relationship that went on for quite some time.
If you’ve not yet seen Ward yet, you will…soon. She is currently filming her first flick, dubbed Speed Dragon.
