Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has reportedly received a shock of his very own after a fracas following his performance in Alberta, Canada, this past weekend.
According to American gossip rag TMZ, The Pale Emperor went for a post-gig carb hit at a local Denny’s fast food restaurant on Saturday, but his bacon and eggs came with a surprise knuckle sandwich, with a steaming hot side of violent quiche. What we’re trying to say is Marilyn got punched square in his Manson.
The goth king reportedly entered the fast food joint with an entourage at around 2am, and soon after became involved in a verbal altercation with a group at another table. At some point, TMZ reports, he allegedly called one woman a bitch, and the woman’s boyfriend, vexed by Manson’s sass, responded by punching him in the face.
The Canadian mounties have confirmed to TMZ that there was indeed a disturbance at Denny’s that night, but no charges have been filed and the case is now closed. But it seems Manson has other plans.
The singer is flatly denying responsibility for instigating the smackdown, claiming instead that he got sucker punched, and outlining plans to sue the guy who allegedly socked him.
His manager told TMZ that the rocker was enjoying his late night snack when two girls approached him, asking for a photo. Manson obliged and claims he never called either woman a “bitch”, but that some guy just came out of nowhere and slugged him in the head.
Manson further alleges that his security detail grabbed the fist-happy patron, who then began screaming and threatening to “blow up” Manson’s next concert. The singer and his security guard are apparently both headed back to Alberta to press charges.
We’ll bring you more on the story as it develops. But in the meantime, we’re just going to leave this here…
