Marilyn Manson Bodyguard Beats Photogs -- In Court!

7/13/2007 2:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A photog who claimed that Marliyn Manson's bodyguard beat the crap out of him outside of a nightclub a few years ago just got his ass kicked again.
Click to launch!
A jury decided shutterbug Ruben Navarrete didn't have the goods to prove he was beaten up by Manson's hired muscle back in 2004.

Navarrete filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging the bodyguard "grabbed him and put him in a choke hold." Navarrete also claimed that the bodyguard forced him to, "erase the portions of his videotape that contained the images of Marilyn Manson." Manson was originally named as a defendant, but the judge threw that part of the case out.

UPDATE: TMZ obtained an official court document that the jury submitted to the judge blasting the two photogs: "We feel this action by the plaintiffs is beyond frivolous. Can we find them responsible for defendants court costs and attorney fees? And any other out of pocket expenses?

Okay People it was not him who did it was his body guard!!!!
Over rated my a$$ he is a great performer, he just doesn't do the main stream (I listen to this because the media tells me too" type of music!!!! Just because his music in playing in the back ground of a GAP commercial, you can still give it a chance!!!!
Not that I would date the guy but his music is great!

I don't like much of his music...some is ok....however, this guy is way more interesting than 95% of the douche bags consistently on this website. Watch a few interviews, the guy is a genius, but continue to worship lindsay lohan, paris hilton, and the rest...because its the cool thing to do.

I used to dig him 10 years ago, when no one knew who he was. But his 'shocking' schtick got tired after 2 years. He's sooo boring. Seriously. Been there done that, bought, wore, and sold the t-shirt. Does he even put albums out anymore or does he tour on the nostalgia circuit? At least Bowie changed his look around every so often, and put out different style albums. Manson's given us Portrait of An American Family a million times. Get a makeover Mr Manson, there's nothing new about you!
