Marilyn Manson kicks bassist Twiggy Ramirez off new tour that starts Nov. 5 in SoCal.
Heaven ain’t the only thing that is upside down in Marilyn Manson‘s world. The rocker delivered a shocker on Oct. 24 via a tweet announcing that he is abruptly ditching his creative relationship with longtime bassist Jeordie White, who is better known as Twiggy Ramirez.
“I have decided to part ways with Jeordie White as a member of Marilyn Manson,” Manson tweeted. “He will be replaced for the upcoming tour.”
The unexpected split caught fans off guard, especially since the double M is about to launch a tour in support of his new album, Heaven Upside Down.
I have decided to part ways with Jeordie White as a member of Marilyn Manson. He will be replaced for the upcoming tour. I wish him well.

The news follows a recent revelation, via Facebook, by White’s ex girlfriend, fellow musician Jessicka Addams. In an FB post last Saturday, the former Jack Off Jill frontwoman accused White of sexual assault during their tumultuous relationship in the early Nineties.
Manson has not mentioned a specific reason for giving White his walking papers, nor has he named his replacement. The “SAY10” singer did, however, add about his ex-bandmate, “I wish him well.”
Manson is set to kick off his Heaven Upside Down tour on Nov. 5 in Southern California, headlining Knotfest at the Glen Helen Amphitheatre.
