Shock rocker Marilyn Manson got a shock of his own during a late-night call into an Alberta, Canada, Denny's, when, according to multiple reports, a fellow diner punched him in the face!

As TMZ first reported, Manson got into a scuffle with another diner in the early hours of Sunday, April 5 when the 46-year-old called into the pancake house for a post-gig refuel.

TMZ's initial information suggested the "Beautiful People" singer had aggravated a fellow diner by calling his girlfriend a "bitch" but Manson's manager later told the outlet the attack was entirely unprovoked, and the guy "came out of nowhere" and hit him in the face.

A bystander corroborated Manson's manager's account, telling the Toronto Sun that the singer was being very accommodating to fans.

"He was being friendly with everyone, anyone who wanted a picture, he would give them a picture, anyone who wanted an autograph he would give them an autograph," the witness named Johnny Scott told the newspaper. "They were just talking and the guy just punched him right in the face without any provocation."

According to the report, the police were called but no arrests were made. Manson's manager, however, told TMZ the rock star is planning on pressing charges
