Marilyn Manson’s marriage is over.

The glitzy goth rocker’s wife of just over a year, model and burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, is seeking a divorce.

Von Teese, whose real name is Heather Sweet, cites irreconcilable differences for the split in papers filed Dec. 29 in Los Angeles Superior Court, which were posted on celebrity news site TMZ.com. The break-up was first reported by the New York Post on Friday.

Von Teese and Manson (real name: Brian Warner) were wed Nov. 28, 2005, according to the court documents. They separated on Christmas Eve.

It was the first marriage for both. They have no children.

A call placed to Von Teese’s attorney was not immediately returned. Efforts to reach Manson, who turned 38 on Friday, were unsuccessful.
