Evan and Marilyn broke up after a year of dating.

In 2008, Evan confirmed to People that she and Marilyn were no longer together. "Manson and I both decided to take some time apart so we could concentrate on work. Someone used that opportunity to kick us while we were down and sell a completely false story," she said.

At the time, Evan denied rumors about Marilyn being a mean partner, saying, "[T]he person that said such horrible things about Manson being ‘controlling’ and ’emotionally abusive’ is certainly no source ‘close’ to me. Manson has been by my side and taken care of me through the best and worst times."
