Shock rocker Marilyn Manson reportedly checked himself into a California rehabilitation centre recently - only to exit just five days later.

According to America's IN TOUCH WEEKLY, the TAINTED LOVE star visited celebrity-favoured clinic Promises to deal with his dependence on a prescription painkiller, but decided he'd had enough help after less than a week.

A source says, "He was only planning on detoxing for 10 days. But he is leaving because he says he doesn't have a problem with other drugs or alcohol."
