Marilyn Manson in court

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Court filings show a contentious lawsuit
between Marilyn Manson and a former band mate has been settled.

The agreement calls for attorneys representing former Manson
keyboardist Stephen Bier to be paid $380,000.

Bier sued Manson for $20 million in 2007, claiming the singer
kept money from him to live a lavish lifestyle. Manson denied
Bier's claims and claimed Bier didn't properly perform his duties
as a band member.

Manson's attorney, Howard King, declared victory and says Bier
is walking away from the case without a dime. He says the case
should have never been filed.

King says Manson's insurance will pay $175,000 and the rest of
the settlement amount will be paid by Bier's former business
managers.
