Evan Rachel Wood has accused Marilyn Manson of abuse, after long referencing being abused without mentioning Marilyn Manson by name.
“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
Wood made the post on Instagram. Vanity Fair report that four other women have also come forward with their own allegations against Manson, “detailing harrowing experiences that they claim included sexual assault, psychological abuse, and/or various forms of coercion, violence, and intimidation.”
Ironically, Manson fired his bandmate Twiggy Ramirez a few years ago after he had allegations surface online. There is currently a touring hiatus for all artists due to the COVID pandemic, so it’s hard to say what will happen for Manson when it comes to playing live after these horrible allegations that surfaced today.
