Marilyn Manson has been scathing about Love at every opportunity, telling NME recently: “Courtney never bothered to say hi to me until I sold a million records. She’s an opportunist and I wouldn’t consider her a friend…the way she’s behaved towards me in the media has seemed very exploitative.”
He added: “I’m not interested in being anything to her.”
But in a major volte face yesterday, both parties confirmed that they were planning a tour this year with Monster Magnet supporting.
The abuse so far has been one-way. Courtney also fell out with Manson’s one-time mentor Trent Reznor, with whom the goth-alien-wacko star now enjoys similarly strained relations.
The dates will be announced after Hole complete their tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Meanwhile, SPIN magazine’s editior has filed a $24 million lawsuit against Manson after an alleged assault last year. Manson told MTV that his lawyers are considering launching a counter-sue.
