Garbage - Officials Launch Investigation Into Shirley Manson Sex Allegations

Officials have launched an inquiry into allegations Garbage rocker Shirley Manson was sexually abused by a music tutor when she was only 15.

During a recent interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, the Scottish singer claimed she engaged in an underage sexual relationship with an unnamed Edinburgh teacher, revealing "I would have sex with him in the back of his van after class. When I found out he was having sex with every one of my mates it stopped."

And now a spokesperson for the Edinburgh City Council says staff members are currently investigating her claims and pouring over their records to determine if any assault complaints were ever filed during the time Manson, now 46, was a schoolgirl.

A representative tells local publication The Scotsman, "We take any allegations of this nature very seriously and we are currently looking to establish more information about this case."
