Manson 'Bought Girl's Skeleton' With Band's Earnings
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson squandered his band's earnings on "sick and disturbing" Nazi memorabilia and a skeleton of a young Chinese girl, according to court papers filed in Los Angeles.
Manson is being sued by his former keyboardist Madonna Wayne Gacy - real name Stephen Gregory Bier Jr. - for non-payment during his time in the singer's band.
Gacy claims Manson, his business manager, lawyer and the band's manager of "filching millions of dollars" from the band's earnings.
Bier's lawyer, Keith Fink, says Manson promised Bier "partnership proceeds" from the band in 1993, but used the money to pay for "a multimillion-dollar home, had a lavish wedding (to Dita Von Teese) in Ireland, gave an engagement ring to Dita von Teese" and collected Nazi artifacts and taxidermy.
Fink says "Manson devised a campaign to drive Bier out of the band and rob him of his entitlement. Litigation will begin immediately."
Manson's manager was unable to comment.
