Marilyn Manson was allegedly sucker punched by a stranger at a Denny’s restaurant in Alberta, Canada on April 5.

The incident occurred following an April 4 show at Lethbridge, Alberta’s Enmax Centre, when Manson and friends were dining during the early morning hours the following day. According to a report from TMZ, a man sucker punched Manson in the face and allegedly elbowed the face of the singer’s makeup artist.

Manson’s reps reportedly announced plans to contact authorities in Alberta and press charges. 

According to witnesses, Manson got into an argument with the other party and referred to a woman as a “bitch.” Manson, however, contends he never used the word, and even agreed to take a photo with the strangers.

According to TMZ, authorities confirmed there was a “disturbance” at the restaurant, but no charges have been filed. 

Billboard reached out to Manson’s team, who have not yet responded.
