Marilyn, Dita Free to Von Tease Other People (E! Online)

Los Angeles (E! Online) - Its official: Brian Warner and Heather Sweet are back on the market in time for 2008.

The duo, slightly better known by the professional aliases Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese, have formally ended their marriage, nearly one year after she filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

A judge signed off on the odd-couple uncoupling in court papers filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court. Their respective legal standings were restored to the status of single persons, with the goth rocker and burlesque babe both now free to marry other people.

Financial terms of their split were not disclosed. They didnt have any children.

The 35-year-old Von Teese filed for divorce last December after just more than a year of marriage. They tied the knot in an Irish castle in November 2005 following four years of dating.

While they initially stayed mum on the details leading up to their split, the ex-spouses have since spoken out about the demise of their relationship.

Von Teese, currently a spokesmodel for Viva Glam, blames the rockers partying and alleged infidelity as contributing factors.

While not denying her claims, Manson has said he was devastated by their separation. He told Spin magazine earlier this year, She said she had tolerated the lifestyle because she hoped I would change and threatened to leave if I didnt.

The Dope Show singer has been dating 20-year-old Across the Universe star Evan Rachel Wood since the separation.

Ive found my double, my twin he said of the actress to Frances Le Parisien newspaper earlier this year. She understands I like to get up when night falls and go to sleep at night.

Come next year, the shock rocker may have to make some amends to his nocturnal schedule. Manson is currently embroiled in litigation with his bands former keyboardist, Stephen Bier.

In August, Bier, whose stage name was Madonna Wayne Gacy, filed a $20 million breach of contract suit alleging Manson shortchanged him on salary and medical support and illicitly pocketed band profits. Manson countersued earlier this month, claiming Bier failed to carry out contractual obligations, including taking part in master recordings, concerts and selling band merchandise.
