“People were pretty mean,” Wood recalled. “At the time I hadn’t yet been exposed to that kind of cruelty from strangers.” She explained, “If people were wondering why I was acting so-called crazy or like a teenager, it’s because I was. People go through phases. People make mistakes. People go through life and don’t get it right every time.”
Wood and Manson had an on-again, off-again relationship. In January 2010, the singer proposed on stage in Paris, but the couple broke off their engagement later that year.
