Cult leader, 80, cancels wedding after finding out about 27-year-old bride's horrifying plans for him

Infamous cult leader/murderer Charles Manson has dating problems just like everyone else. The 80-year-old cult leader recently learned that it's hard to find love when you've spent everyday in jail since 1971 as one of the most notorious criminals in history.

In 2005, a 19-year-old woman named Afton Elaine "Star" Burton began visiting Manson in jail. They were engaged to be married in 2014, reports Viral Nova.

However, Manson recently found out that his young bride-to-be had some plans for after the wedding that didn't involve a honeymoon.

On November 17, 2014, Manson announced that he was engaged to fan-turned-lover "Star" Burton after she had visited him in prison for nine years. She is 27 years old.

The marriage never happened. Manson soon found out Star's only goal in the marriage was to have possession of Manson's corpse when he died. Star and her friends want to take the corpse, put it on display, and charge for its viewing.

The wedding was called off. And even if it wasn't, Manson thinks Star's scheme is folly because, of course, he believes he is immortal.

The whole wedding idea itself may have been a scheme by Manson, who would often employ the help of Star and her friends to sneak various things into prison for him. Who was playing who here?

So if you're upset about being single this Valentine's Day, just remember that somewhere in the California State Prison, Charles Manson's life sentence just got much lonelier. I almost feel bad for him. Almost.
