Marilyn Manson once addressed the playground rumour about him getting his rib removed
| Last updated
Let's not beat around the bush - we've all hard the rumour that Marilyn Manson once got one of his ribs removed so he could suck his own ding dong.
And the singer, who recently settled an abuse lawsuit with Game Of Thrones actor Esme Bianco, once addressed the rumour about his alleged fondness for giving himself BJs.
However, when it comes to removing his rib, this all apparently started when an unknown internet user alleged that Manson was particularly keen on pleasuring himself.
The rumour spread like wildfire and it didn't take long for fans of Manson from all across the world to start questioning its authenticity.
Well, in a fan Q&A session on an issue of Q magazine, Manson was finally asked the question from a man named Keith Rathbone.
He asked: "For years, it was rumoured that you'd had a rib removed to achieve self-fellatio.
"Obviously, that's nonsense, but have you ever tried to suck your own c**k?"
Manson replied: "Wow! Does Keith get money if I answer this?
"No comment. Keith, you c**t!"
Also, in Manson's autobiography The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell, the singer wrote: "If I really got my ribs removed, I would have been busy sucking my own d**k on The Wonder Years instead of chasing Winnie Cooper.
"Plus, who really has time to be killing puppies when you can be sucking your own d**k? I think I'm gonna call the surgeon in the morning."
I suppose that puts the rumour to bed then!
Manson previously admitted that he gets a kick out of being provocative, which probably explains why he was in no rush to dispel the rumour in the first place.
"I've always measured success not only by the number of people that love you, but the ones that hate you, too," he once said in an interview with David Letterman.
"If you do something that everybody loves, it's not really worth doing.
"I like to provoke people so they think," he continued. "You know, I think that's a healthy part of entertainment - that you don't get too much from The Spice Girls."
Well, in the recent lawsuit filed in federal court in Los Angeles in 2021, Esme Bianco alleged Manson, whose legal name is Brian Warner, violated human trafficking law by bringing her to California from England in 2009 and 2011 under the false pretences of roles in music videos and films that never materialised.
The legal action alleged Manson deprived Bianco of food and sleep, gave her alcohol and drugs, locked her in a bedroom, whipped her, cut her, gave her electric shocks, tried to force her to have sex with another woman and threatened to enter her room and r*pe her during the night.
Manson has always denied the allegations, while details of the terms were not released.
Bianco reached the lawsuit agreement 'in order to move on with her life and career', lawyer Jay Ellwanger confirmed.
