Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has split from his on/off girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood once again after calling off their engagement, according to reports.

The on/off couple originally dated in 2006 following his divorce from burlesque star Dita Von Teese.

They broke up in 2008 and briefly reunited in early 2009, before reconciling months later and secretly becoming engaged in January.

But the odd pair has called it quits yet again, according to

Manson, 41, was spotted out in Hollywood without Wood by his side on Saturday night – and a source claims the night out was his pals’ attempt to cheer him up after splitting from The Wrestler actress, 22, last week.

The insider tells the website, “They just broke off their engagement, and he needed a night out with friends.”

But it won’t be the last they see of each other – the former couple is due to team up on the big screen to star in upcoming slasher film Splatter Sisters.
