Marilyn Manson said in new legal documents, according to TMZ, that online death threats are making him feel “anxious, distraught, depressed, worried, frantic, and sleepless” and he’s worried for the safety of his second wife, Lindsay Usich.
Marilyn said his record label, Loma Vista Recordings, has released him, as has talent agency CAA, and he has been “excluded from Hollywood social and business gatherings.”
Manson says he can’t release his book or tour, and his paintings have been “devalued” with art shows being shelved.
Manson claimed his “false portrayal as a rapist, abuser, and child pornographer” has caused him to lose jobs on the Starz series “American Gods” and Paramount+ show “The Stand”.
Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland said on Twitch last year, “”Marilyn Manson… I was in the band for nine months [as a touring member in 2008 and 2009]. He’s not a great guy. Every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true. So relax about the allegations towards the women… like when people say [bad things about] these women that are coming after him right now… fuck off, they are speaking the truth.
“I’m sorry to everyone on this podcast right now who doesn’t like this. But that guy, he’s amazingly talented, but he’s fucked up and he needs to be put in check and he needs to get sober and he needs to come to terms with his demons. He is a bad fucking guy.
“I was there when he was with Evan Rachel Wood, I was at his house, it’s not fucking cool. That’s all I’m gonna say about it.
“If anyone is coming after these girls and going like, ‘You blah blah blah, this and that’ – fuck you; that’s all I’m gonna say.
“Sorry to take this to a dark place, but that guy is canceled, goodbye, don’t let the door hit you on the way out…
“He tried to choke me out on stage and I flipped him over and knocked the breath out of him. He’s not a great guy. Goodbye. My apologies. I was the biggest fan and [now] I am not.”
