“Monster almost destroyed me”
“Game of Thrones”-Star verklagt Manson
Many women have gone public with horror stories about their alleged experiences with Marilyn Manson. One of them is Esmé Bianco. The “Game of Thrones” actress claims to have been raped and whipped by the shock rocker. Now she is filing a complaint against him.
British actress Esmé Bianco is suing Marilyn Manson after she and other women, including colleague Evan Rachel Wood, made serious allegations of abuse against the musician. Several US media reports, including the industry magazine “Variety”, unanimously.
Bianco, known among other things for her role in “Game of Thrones”, claims according to court documents that Manson forced her to have sexual intercourse several times. She also accuses him of drugging and threatening her. Manson raped Bianco in May 2011. He also assaulted her when she was unconscious, and the musician bit her against her will, beat her and flogged her, among other things. Last but not least, he injured the actress with a knife and followed her through an apartment with an ax.
It goes on to say that it took Bianco years to understand the full extent of the physical, sexual and psychological abuse by Manson. Not only did her career suffer as a result, she still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and panic attacks, among other things. In an interview with “The Cut” in February, Bianco had already described Manson as a “monster that almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women”.
Evan Rachel Wood had announced on Instagram in early February that Manson had “abused her terribly for years.” She was “brainwashed and manipulated into submission”. Manson denied the allegations at the time, stating, among other things, in a statement: “Obviously my life and my art have long been a magnet for controversy, but these recent claims about me are terrible distortions of reality.” His music label and manager later ended their collaboration with Manson.
