There's no feud here according to the rockstar.
We wouldn't have thought that Marilyn Manson and Justin Bieber would get on particularly well anyway, given that they are as opposite as opposites can be, but it seems their celebrity feud over a T-shirt design has finally come to an end, and the text messages prove it.
The 48-year-old shock rocker was less than happy when the 23-year-old told him that he made Manson 'relevant again', and even less happy that Justin used his face on his own T-shirt range. But the pair are as cool as ever after an exchange of texts that saw Justin apologise profusely.

Not only did Bieber not seek his permission, he apparently told Manson he had made him "relevant again", according to the rocker.
One of the more bizarre celebrity feuds of 2017 has broken out online, with polar musical extremes Justin Bieber and Marilyn Manson airing a dispute in the press over a T-shirt as the latter delivered a scathing interview about the Biebs.
The fracas began when Bieber began using Manson’s image on the front of a $195 Barney’s T-shirt — the phrase “Bigger Than Satan… Bieber” embroidered on the back, which went on sale back in July 2016. Designed by Jerry Lorenzo, the shirt (which is available without the Bieber graffiti for just $19), was held out as having been created with Manson’s permission.
“Thank you Marilyn Manson for signing off on the ‘Bigger than Satan’ x Justin Bieber tee,” Lorenzo wrote on Instagram in the summer of 2016. “Thanks for understanding our approach and re-interpretation of your vision. Never would of thought printing on my vintage T-shirt collection would take us this far.”
