Could Lana Del Rey and shock-rocker Marilyn Manson really be in the early stages of a blossoming relationship?
According to a German gossip column in a local Berlin newspaper BZ, the pair were spotted sneaking off in a hotel lift together.
The newspaper reports that they were first spotted having dinner at the city’s Grille Royale restaurant ahead of the Echo Awards, which Manson was performing at in a duet with German metal band Rammstein. An eyewitness then saw the couple meet up again at the five-star Grand Hyatt hotel, where they were caught taking the elevator to Manson’s hotel room.
Earlier in the evening, the pair were snapped posing for photographs with ‘Mandy’ singer Barry Manilow. See above for a picture of the unlikely hook up, which was first posted by Missdontcare-x.tumblr.
Of course, the story should be taken with a pinch of salt, since Lana Del Rey is thought to be dating Barrie O’Neil, frontman of Scottish rock band Kassidy. The pair have reportedly been seeing each other for the last seven month’s and O’Neil’s band have covered Lana Del Rey’s ‘Video Games’ during a live set.
It remains to be seen whether Manson will invite his alleged new squeeze round to Johnny Depp’s house for a jam session anytime soon, since he and the actor recorded a duet together.
