Serious allegations of abuse
US authorities are investigating Marilyn Manson
Several women accuse Marilyn Manson of abuse, including rape. They refer to him as a “monster” and a “repeat offender”. Now the allegations against the shock rocker are apparently being investigated by the police. A suspected victim is to be interviewed in the coming days.
Due to the many and serious allegations of abuse against Marilyn Manson, the US authorities have now apparently opened an investigation. As the US celebrity portal “TMZ” claims to have learned from police circles, the officers will meet with a suspected victim of Manson in the next few days. However, a name is not mentioned in the report.
It should first be clarified whether a crime has been committed and whether it even falls within the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles Police Department. After that, it should be decided, so “TMZ” further, whether further investigations are necessary.
In early February, Manson’s ex-fiancée, actress Evan Rachel Wood, went public and accused the 52-year-old of domestic violence and rape on Instagram. He drugged, handcuffed and physically injured her. She later also accused her ex-partner of making anti-Semitic and racist remarks.
“He’s a repeat offender”
The musician Phoebe Bridgers then claimed on Twitter that Manson had talked about having a “rape room” in his house many years ago. And further: “The label knew it, the management knew it, the band knew it. To distance yourself from it now and to pretend to be shocked and horrified is damn pathetic.”
Shortly thereafter, Esmé Bianco, best known for her role in “Game of Thrones”, accused Manson of abuse. In relation to “The Cut” she described the musician as “a monster that almost destroyed me and almost destroyed many women”. The actress was in a relationship with the shock rocker from 2009 to 2011. She accused him of physical abuse, torture and control, among other things, and called him a “repeat offender”. He whipped her, held her prisoner and publicly humiliated her.
Neither Esmé Bianco nor Evan Rachel Wood can bring charges against Marilyn Manson. Your supposed cases have already expired. Frustrated by this fact, the two actresses teamed up in 2019. Together, they campaigned for an extension of the California statute of limitations for reporting domestic violence. The so-called Phoenix Act, which extended the period from three to five years, came into force in 2020.
Manson has so far rejected all allegations. On Instagram he spoke of a “terrible distortion of reality”. His “intimate relationships” were “always completely amicable with like-minded partners”.
