The ongoing dispute between the performer Marilyn Manson and his former band mate Stephen Bier has reportedly been settled.
The dispute arose around an alleged breach of contract. Stephen Bier claimed that Marilyn Manson had breached a contract between them by using money generated from the band to purchase good for himself and his partner. Marilyn Manson countersued claiming that Stephen Bier has breached the contract himself by not performing in concerts, promoting the band and by not participating in the production of recordings (this counter claim was later dropped).
Marilyn Manson claimed that the partnership had been dissolved in 1996 and therefore the allegations were without merit.
In any event the matter is reported to have been settled the details of which are not made public.
