Despite numerous Internet reports, Marilyn Manson is not engaged to marry occult filmmaker Seraphim Ward. Manson's publicist has just issued a statement, claiming that not only is Manson not engaged to Ward, he has never even met her.

Usually known for shocking fans with his stage show, music and videos, but today it's Marilyn Manson's personal life providing the excitement. Reports from Life & Style and E! Online had the 43-year old shock rocker -- also known as Brian Warner -- engaged to wed 27-year old independent occult filmmaker Seraphim Ward. "Seraphim has recently made a life commitment to her partner and couldn't be happier!" Ward's manager reportedly said of the upcoming union. Now we know that these reports are completely false.

Here's the full statement from Manson's publicist: "Marilyn Manson is not engaged as reported erroneously by Life & Style. Manson has never met Seraphim Ward and does not know who she is."

As for his actual romantic life, Manson was previously married to model Dita Von Teese and was involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with actress Evan Rachel Wood.

Onto the real news: Manson recently told Loudwire that his upcoming release 'Born Villain' was his "comeback" album. He also recently performed with Johnny Depp and Taylor Momsen at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards. Check out our exclusive photos from that gig here.
