Despite claims by Star magazine, a representative for Marilyn Manson has confirm that he is not dating Avril Lavigne.
It may sound like a match made in goth-pop heaven, but apparently the courtship of the Sk8r Boi singer and the world's most notorious rock star is completely imaginary.
Now that she's broken up with Brody Jenner, and Manson appears to be on a break from his usual string of celebrity girlfriends, an alleged source told Star that the long term friends "are suddenly romantic now that they’re both single.
"Avril has been in Paris and Marilyn is on a European tour, so whenever he has a break he flies back to Paris to be with her."
The 'source' also said that "They’ve been hooking up and then Skyping when they aren’t together.
"It’s not really serious yet, but they’ve definitely got a little love connection going on."
However, the representative from Manson's camp has told Gossip Cop that the rumours are "not true."
The unconventionally styled Manson has gained a notoriety for his series of glamourous girlfriends, including the Queen of Burlesque herself, Dita Von Teese, Planet Terror star Rose McGowan and gorgeous actress Evan Rachel Wood, who recently appeared with Ryan Gosling in The Ides of March.
Recently, he has been linked to American photographer Lindsay Usich.
Avril was married to Sum 41 singer Derrick Whibley for in 2006, but they divorced in 2010.
Judging from this hair, Avril's got a taste for the spooky!
