LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The ongoing legal dispute between Marilyn Manson and his former keyboardist Stephen "Pogo" Bier has taken a turn for the macabre. In addition to the original allegations made by the suit, which assert that Bier had not been fully compensated for his time in the band, the addendum further alleges that the singer squandered the band's profits on an odd collection of human artifacts, a number of which are proscribed by U.S. law.
According to a report by the New York Post, the list of items that Bier claims the "filched" money was spent on allegedly include African masks made from human skin, a skeleton in a wheelchair and the skeletal remains of a Chinese girl and Nazi memorabilia among other things.
Other allegations leveled against the singer by the addendum include Manson arranging for his girlfriend, actress Rachel Wood to receive the "highest salary ever paid to any actress in any music video in history" for her role in the promotion video for Heart Shaped Glasses.
At the time of press, Manson's sharks have not responded to the amended lawsuit. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
