Marilyn Manson shares photo of reattached ear after brawl

Singer needed 24 stitches after grisly fight

Marilyn Manson shares photo of reattached ear after brawl
Marilyn Manson has shared a picture of his reattached ear after he was involved in a fight in Switzerland.

The goth rocker Tweeted the image, which you can see to the right of the page, after telling fans that he'd needed 24 stitches to save the ear after a grisly brawl in which he was hit with a glass table - although he still boasted that he'd won the brawl.

Although he chose not to reveal the full details of the bloody skirmish, he wrote: "I was hit by a glass table in a dangerous fight. I was however, the victor but had to have 24 stitches to keep my ear from becoming Van Goth."

In September, it was reported that notorious 1960s serial killer Charles Manson had sent the singer, whose real name is Brian Warner, an open letter from his prison cell - a decision seemingly inspired by the singer's decision to take the latter half of his moniker from Manson's surname, and his first half from actress Marilyn Monroe.

The missive was largely abstract but did seem to have a seemingly threatening undertone, including the passage: "Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007. Charles Manson."

Despite his reputation, Marilyn Manson insisted earlier this year that he is "not some kind of sexual deviant" and claimed that he is more conservative in the bedroom than his decadent appearance suggests.
