Friends of Marilyn Manson are worried by his rumoured relationship with 19-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood, and fear the rocker is on the verge of a mid-life crisis.
Manson's estranged wife Dita Von Teese filed for divorce last month (DEC06), ending their marriage of just over a year, and now sources close to the 38-year-old ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR hitmaker fear he's spiralling out of control.
One pal tells American publication People, "It's like he's having a midlife crisis. He's with a younger version of Dita."
The friend points out that Wood, who was last seen in public with Manson at this birthday party on 5 January (07), "Has her hair and makeup done like Dita."
Wood's publicist has vehemently denied her client had anything to do with the break-up of Manson's marriage.
