Marilyn Manson files countersuit against ex-bandmate Stephen Bier
Marilyn Manson has filed a countersuit against Stephen Bier (stage name Madonna Wayne Gacy), a former keyboard player who filed a suit against the star earlier this year as Side-Line reported. Manson is now accusing Bier of breach of contract for showing up late to band recordings and promotional appearances. He is also accusing the former keyboardist of giving confidential band information to the media. Manson filed the papers in the Los Angeles Superior Court on December 19.

Bier filed suit against Manson in August seeking more than $20 million and claiming that Manson cheated him out of wages and medical support while using band profits to live an extravagant lifestyle. Bier for instance sad that in 2000, Manson forced the band to spend a substantial sum of money to pay a video production company to keep certain video footage out of an upcoming DVD about the band as this video footage showed Manson making racist statements and jokes about African-Americans while feeding his pet snake. And Bier is also pretty sure that Manson used band money to buy Von Teese's $150,000 engagement ring and to pay for the couple's 2005 wedding.

Marilyn Manson would also have spent a huge amount of the band's money on nazi artifacts (SS typewriters, swastika wall tiles, Nazi government coat hangers owned by Adolf Hitler, a handbag that belonged to Eva Braun for Dita Von Teese), drugs (cocaine and Vicodin) and the production of the film "Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll".

In a reaction a spokesman for Brier said that they were not impressed by Manson's latest actions.
