Evan Rachel Wood Says Marilyn Manson Helped 'Raise Her'Despite an oft-truculent relationship with Marilyn Manson that ended in the middle of their engagement, Evan Rachel Wood still expresses strong feelings for the Goth-metal icon, telling Nylon Magazine he had a permanent impact on her.

"He had a hand in raising me!" Wood says. "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."

The couple's history has always been rocky -- the goth rocker and Wood, who has starred in films like 'Whatever Works' and 'Across the Universe,' began dating in 2006, split in 2008, got back together, split, became engaged after Manson proposed onstage in Paris in January, and called it quits in August.
