Marilyn Manson says he did NOT start the late-night fight at a Denny’s in Canada that led to him getting punched in the face over the weekend. The rocker is planning to sue his alleged attacker, whom Manson claims struck him for no reason.

According to TMZ, Manson alleges that he was not bothering anyone and enjoying his Denny’s dinner in Alberta at approximately 2 a.m. on Sunday when two women approached him and requested a photo. The musician says he obliged and never insulted them.

In Manson’s version of events, an unidentified man then hit him in the face. The rocker’s security corralled the assailant, who allegedly threatened to blow up Manson’s next show. Manson also alleges the man hit his makeup artist in her face with an elbow. He reportedly plans to press charges.

The first version of the story reported by sources for TMZ claimed Manson had gotten punched after allegedly calling the man’s girlfriend a “b*tch.” As Gossip Cop previously reported, while police acknowledged there had been an incident at the Denny’s, there had not yet been any charges filed or an investigation. It looks like that will now change. Gossip Cop will have updates.
