Marilyn Manson has said that he will press charges against a man who allegedly hit him in the face at a branch of Denny’s in Alberta, Canada at the weekend.

Early reports claimed that Manson got into an argument with a group of people in the restaurant in the early hours of Sunday morning. It was claimed that the punch was thrown by a man in the group, after Manson called his girlfriend a “bitch”.

The singer’s manager told TMZ that this was not the case, claiming that two girls had approached Manson and asked for a photograph, for which he politely obliged. Then, out of nowhere, the man appeared, punched him, and elbowed his make-up artist in the face too.

Both are apparently pressing charges over the incident.
