ANTM Winner CariDee English Is Dating Marilyn Manson
In today’s news of the weird, America’s Next Top Model winner CariDee English is dating shock rocker Marilyn Manson. CariDee was Cycle 7′s loose cannon, chiding Nigel Barker (“Did you just remove that from your ass from the last panel?”) and admitting to a suicide attempt during an emotional outburst.
She is 25 to Manson’s 41, which we suppose isn’t so strange since Manson just ended his engagement to 23-year-old Evan Rachel Wood. There are no hard feelings between the newly former flames, however, as Wood told Nylon: “He had a hand in raising me! Oh, I’m always gonna love that guy. He’s a genius, he’s an amazing artist, we’re still friends. Some things just aren’t meant to be.”
CariDee met Manson while she was recording her album — she even covered one of Manson’s songs (check out the video of “Coma White” below, if you’re so inclined). What does she see in Manson? She talked about the relationship to Life & Style, explaining: ”Marilyn Manson inspires and supports me in my music. He has made me feel comfortable and beautiful with who I am as an artist and as a woman.”
