The Marilyn Manson scandal is gaining momentum. The former girlfriend of the musician filed a lawsuit against him, accusing him of rape and intentional infliction of emotional harm.
The girl, who wished to remain anonymous, met with the rocker in 2011. She claims that during their relationship, Manson exploited and harassed her. “The defendant tricked the plaintiff into what was originally a consensual romantic relationship. Shortly after, he raped the plaintiff. He also subjected her to degrading acts of sexual exploitation, manipulation, and psychological abuse, “ the complaint says.
According to the victim, she met Manson in February 2011 at a party dedicated to the Grammy Awards. Their romance developed rapidly: within two weeks of meeting, Manson confessed his love for her and gave her the keys to his apartment. “So he wanted to control the plaintiff. If she didn’t respond to Manson’s messages, he would call her and demand to know where she was and with whom. He could call at any time of the day or night, expecting the plaintiff to immediately answer the call, “ the court documents say.
When the victim decided to return the keys to the house to Manson, he threw her on the floor and raped her. According to the girl, he threatened to kill her, saying that he would get away with murder. The documents also say that Manson threatened to kill his other lover, actress Evan Rachel Wood. He told the victim how he once tied Wood to a table and pointed a gun at her, but then showed mercy and changed his mind about killing her.
Recall that Wood was the first to press charges against Manson. In February, the actress said that during their relationship, the musician subjected her to psychological, physical, and sexual violence, as well as threatened her. After Wood, the silence was broken by other women who had negative experiences with Manson. New stories continue to pop up to this day.
So, among the victims was the actress Esme Bianco, known for the TV series “Game of Thrones”. She sued Manson for sexual assault and battery. According to the actress, the musician repeatedly used drugs, force, and threats to force her to have sex. In addition, Manson forced the actress to take medication, as well as depriving her of sleep and food, so that the girl could not physically and mentally resist. When Bianco was unconscious or asleep, Manson could have raped her.
Manson categorically denies the allegations, calling them “ a terrible distortion of reality.” According to him, Esme Bianco decided to go to court only because he ignored her threats and demands to pay her a large sum. The musician’s lawyer said that he is ready for a trial and has no doubts about his victory.
Note that at the moment, Manson is wanted on charges of assault. The musician was charged because of an altercation with a videographer that occurred in 2019. Evidence of the offense was a video in which Manson, approaching the operator, spat directly into the camera lens. At the same time, the video was broadcast on the big screen during a concert on the stage of the Bank of New Hampshire pavilion. According to state laws, such actions can result in a fine of $2 million or a prison sentence of up to one year.
One thing is for sure: the allegations of violence will have serious consequences for Manson’s career. The musician lost roles in the TV series “American Gods “on the cable TV channel Starz and in the show” Kaleidoscope of horrors “ from AMC. In addition, the label Loma Vista Recording, which promoted his latest album, refused to cooperate with Manson.
