Marilyn Manson Says His Friendship With Courtney Love Ended Because of Sex

Men and women, women and men — if you’ve seen ‘When Harry Met Sally,’ you know we have a hard time maintaining friendships without sexual tension getting in the way. Heck, just ask Marilyn Manson.

The eyeliner enthusiast reflected on his former friendship with Hole mastermind Courtney Love during a recent interview with Esquire, suggesting that their years of much-publicized insult-slinging may have started because of an unrequited attraction.

Insisting that they “never really had a falling out” with each other, Manson also argued that, contrary to most male-female friendships that disintegrate over matters of the heart, the guy in this relationship wasn’t the one who wanted more.

“We’ve always been weird with each other, because she’s slept with pretty much every one of my friends, supposedly. Not me, though,” he claimed. “She told me she was mad at me because I didn’t want to f— her and I was smarter than her. I said, ‘Well, you kind of proved your own point right there on that one.'”

Manson’s new album, ‘The Pale Emperor,’ came out earlier this week. It is already a Top 10 hit in Russia.
