Manson's Ex-bandmate Gets $380,000 Pay-out

The keyboardist who sued MARILYN MANSON for more than $20 million (£14 million) is walking away with $380,000 (£237,500) after the feuding rockers settled their legal battle in court.
The rocker reached a settlement with Stephen 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 came to a stalemate, and Manson promptly took to the internet to dismiss rumours he gave in to Bier's demands.
According to the Associated Press, Bier is still receiving a substantial $380,000 (£237,500) payout - but it won't be paid by Manson directly.
Manson's insurance company will hand over $175,000 (£109,000), while Bier's former business managers will pay the remainder.
