“Has Been Brainwashed”
Woods outed Manson as her rapist
Her relationship with Marilyn Manson made headlines in 2007 because of the sheer age difference. Now Evan Rachel Wood is causing a stir again: The actress accuses her ex-fiancé of having “abused her terribly for years.”
“Westworld” actress Evan Rachel Wood had reported several times of a violent relationship from her past. Now she also reveals the name of the ex-partner who is said to have abused her. “My tormentor’s name is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.”
Manson started to contact her “with ulterior motives when I was a teenager and abused me terribly for years,” the actress explains in her statement, which she published on Instagram.
“I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission,” continues the 33-year-old. She no longer wants to live “in fear of retaliation, slander or blackmail”. She wanted to expose this dangerous man and all who would have enabled him to do so before he ruined more lives. “I stand by the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
According to the US magazine “Vanity Fair” at least four other women have signed up and shared their experiences with the 52-year-old Manson in public. Wood shared some statements on her Instagram stories. The women report, among other things, “terrible, disturbed behaviors”. He controls, blackmail, humiliate and manipulate his victims. He also uses methods of torture and violence. Individual incidents with which a suspected victim turned to Manson’s management, his with the words “It is what it is” or “He has done worse” have been dismissed. The alleged rape victims claim that they still suffer from post-traumatic stress disorders today.
Manson denies allegations
After three years of relationship, Evan Rachel Wood and the much older scandal rocker Marilyn Manson got engaged in January 2010. The separation followed seven months later. Wood has already spoken of a violent relationship in the past, in which she escaped in self-harm, as she revealed in an Instagram post in 2019.
“Whenever my tormentor threatened or attacked me, I cut my arm in order to disarm him in this way. But that only stopped the abuse temporarily,” she wrote at the time. In 2016 she said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine that she had been raped twice. Once from an ex-partner and later “from the owner of a bar”.
Rumors that the partner in Wood’s violent relationship could be Marilyn Manson had been denied several times by Manson’s circle. A spokesman published a statement via “NME” in November 2020, stating, among other things, that Evan Rachel Wood “was with several people around the time she was with Manson. Basic internet research reveals a variety of other names, the did not appear in any of the discussions. “
