Marilyn Manson net worth: Marilyn Manson is an American rock star who has a net worth of $25 million dollars. A singer-songwriter, musician, writer, actor, and artist, Marilyn Manson is most widely recognized as the lead singer and founder of the self-named band "Marilyn Manson". He has released seven studio albums, and his lyrics and personal appearance have been the subject of much controversy.
Born Brian Hugh Warner (what an awesome first and last name btw…) on January 5, 1969, in Canton, Ohio, he made a name for himself on the world music stage with his controversial persona as the eponymous lead singer of the band Marilyn Manson. A controversy surrounds the sole formation of his stage name, which was created by juxtaposing the names of two American icons, particularly actress Marilyn Monroe and multiple murder conspiracy convict Charles Manson. Back in 1989, when Manson and guitarist Scott Putesky decided to form a band, they named the combo Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids. Shortly after, the name was shortened only to Marilyn Manson, under which they released their debut album, Portrait of an American Family in 1994. This first effort was enough for the band to start developing a cult following that grew bigger and bigger with each subsequent release. Some of the releases that had major impact on building up Manson's disputed reputation include 1996′s Antichrist Superstar and 1998′s Mechanical Animals. Even though his dark appearance received negative attention from critics, he continued to have a loyal fan base. In addition to music, Mason has also dabbled in acting appearing such movies as Jawbreaker (1999), Party Monster (1998) and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004). As for his private life, he was engaged to actress Rose McGowan (1998 to 2001) and later married Dita Von Teese in November 2005. The divorced only one year later, and in 2010, he had proposed to on and off again girlfriend Evan Rachael Wood. But the couple called off the engagement a year after, stating "we needed time apart".
