Confronting photos have emerged showing Marilyn Manson being stretchered into a waiting ambulance after being crushed by a piece of his staging whilst performing in New York.
The 48-year-old rocker was performing his hit single Sweet Dreams at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Saturday when part of his staging - in the shape of two large guns - fell on top of him, bringing the show to a halt.
In the pictures, which was uploaded to Instagram, Marilyn can be seen lying back in his characteristic goth make-up with what appears to be a look of pain on his face.
According to TMZ, Marilyn - real name Brian Warner - was an hour into his show when the incident happened, and it took several minutes for emergency workers to free him from underneath the structure, before putting him on a stretcher and taking him to hospital.
In a statement to Rolling Stone his rep said the singer is being treated in hospital and that the rest of his shows have been cancelled.
It reads: "On Saturday night, the legendary performer suffered an injury on stage towards the end of his set at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom causing him to cut the show short. He was treated for the injury at a local hospital and will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles."
Meanwhile, The Beautiful People singer recently praised fellow musician Rihanna for her "hardcore" attitude, said he was inspired by her music video for hit single B***h Better Have My Money when it came to making the video for his own singleWe Know Where You F***ing Live.
He said: "Rihanna [is] dangerous. I had this conversation with [director] Tom Wyatt, prior to this video coming out. He said, 'who do you want to compete with like in music and things like that?' I said, 'Rihanna.' [Rihanna's] B***h Better Have My Money video? That's a hardcore video."
Marilyn then added that "all" of the 29-year-old beauty's videos for being just as "hardcore".
