Marilyn Manson Seeking Apology From Seraphim Ward Over False Engagement Claim
Marilyn Manson has had enough and TMZ reports the rocker has reached out via his lawyer to Seraphim Ward demanding a public apology for the false stories she’s spread about him, including one last year that was widely circulated about the couple being engaged.
Shortly after the engagement story came out last year, Manson denied it and has maintained that he has “no romantic or other association” with Ward. At the time, Manson’s publicist issued a statement that read: “Marilyn Manson is not engaged as reported erroneously by Life & Style. Manson has never met Seraphim Ward and does not know who she is.”
But that didn’t stop the stories or commentary from Ward hitting media outlets, with her claims of his alleged racism and Nazi sympathy making for tabloid fodder. In an attempt to stop Ward’s publicity-seeking ways, Manson’s lawyer has fired off a letter demanding an apology and threatening legal action should she continue to talk publicly about their supposed relationship.
With the legalities being taken care of, Manson is back to focusing on his career. The vocalist returns to the road Jan. 18 in Milwaukee, supporting his ‘Born Villain’ album. You can currently enter a Loudwire contest (which ends Jan. 13 at 11:59PM ET) to win a pair of tickets for his upcoming tour here. Manson also is set to make a guest appearance on the upcoming season of Showtime’s ‘Californication’ and contribute his cover of Depeche Mode‘s ‘Personal Jesus’ to the soundtrack.
