Manson: 'I Didn't Pay Off Bier'

Shock rocker MARILYN MANSON has spoken out about his multi-million dollar legal battle with former bandmate STEPHEN BIER - insisting he did not "pay off" the keyboardist.
The rocker reached a settlement with Bier - also known by stage names Madonna Wayne Gacy and Pogo - on 11 December (09) following a two-year court battle.
The $20 million (£14 million) suit, which Bier filed in 2007, accused Manson of breach of contract, alleging the star used money from their former band partnership to buy personal goods, including gifts for his ex-wife Dita Von Teese.
Manson claimed the band's partnership was dissolved in 1996, but Bier - who left the group in 2007 - was adamant he should still be entitled to a share of revenue.
The pair recently came to a stalemate, and although court records have kept the details of the settlement private, Manson has taken to the internet to dismiss rumours he gave in to Bier's demands.
He writes on his MySpace.com page, "I want to make clear that, aside from the wasted legal fees, in no way did I pay off the person that stood behind a keyboard - pretending to play music other artists in this band wrote. And I would not pi** on Pogo if he was on fire. The end. Or is it?
"Let's wait until all the really bad things I covered up for him are suddenly uncovered. I got a far more severe type of karma for traitors and people that owe me, legally a lot more than what I wasted tolerating your rape of a band you never deserved to be in."
In a separate posting the rocker continued, "I don't want this to be confused as anger. I feel nothing for a person that betrayed me and my band. My band. And I'm sure that if anyone wants to discuss this with him personally, I won't be so rude to NOT give you his or his family's addresses. So good luck to you, sir. You are gonna need it. Sweet dreams."
