Shock rocker Marilyn Manson — who split from True Blood star Evan Rachel Wood last year — has swine flu.

"So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU," the singer, 40, writes on his Facebook page. "I know everyone will suggest that f****** a pig is how this disease was obtained. However, the doctor said, my past choices in women have, in 'no way' contributed to me acquiring this mysterious sickness."
