Rock star Marilyn Manson is being sued by a former band member who says he is owed $20m (9.8m) in shared profits.

Stephen Bier, who played keyboards under the stage name Madonna Wayne Gacy, claims he was not paid properly over a period of almost two decades.

He says Manson instead spent the band's profits on a house, drug treatment and collecting Nazi paraphernalia.

Manson, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, told MTV the accusations were "really ridiculous".
