The incident happened on Saturday at around 2:30 in the morning following Manson’s show at the ENMAX Centre. The blow wasn’t thrown by the hands of small children, but rather those of a full grown man who was able to bring the speed of pain to Manson’s face much faster. Initial reports said Manson got in an argument with a nearby table and called the man’s girlfriend a “bitch,” which led to the fisticuffs.
However, Manson’s manager released a statement through TMZ that denied those reports. Manson claims that that he was taking a picture with two female fans when the man came out of nowhere and sucker punched him. His security intervened, pulling the attacker away as he was “screaming about blowing up Manson’s next concert.” Manson’s makeup artist was elbowed in the kerfuffle, and the pair intend to press charges.
Speedy recovery, Marilyn; I hope it doesn’t leave a scar.
