Keyboardist sues Marilyn Manson

By
Marilyn Manson's former keyboardist has filed a lawsuit against him, claiming that the singer used his bandmate's earnings to buy macabre goods such as skeletons.

Wayne Gacy, real name Stephen Bier, accused Manson of purchasing "sick and disgusting" items such as a chandelier made from human bones and African masks made out of human skin with the money he was owed.

In the lawsuit papers Gacy claimed he had been cheated out of money from the rocker, real name Brian Warner, for the last twenty years.

He also hit out at Manson for paying his girlfriend so much money to appear in the 'Heart Shaped Glasses' music video, saying that it was "the highest salary ever paid to any actress in any music video in history".

Marilyn Manson's representatives have not yet commented on the accusations.
