Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood has claimed that heavy metal and rock singer Marilyn Manson ‘horrifically abused’ her during their three-year relationship.
The 33-year-old actress made the allegations on Monday in an Instagram post. “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.” Wood wrote in an Instagram post.
Evan Rachel Wood first spoke about being a survivor of rape and domestic violence in a 2016 rolling interview but did not mention the name of the perpetrator.
Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson went public with their relationship in 2007, and the duo got engaged in 2010 but broke up later that year.
For the unversed Evan Rachel has testified before a House Judiciary Subcommittee as part of an effort to get the Sexual Assault Survivors Bill of Rights passed in all 50 states.
Ever since Evan Rachel Wood accused Manson on Monday four other women have come forward with their own stories of abuse related to Manson.
Shockingly in 2009 in an article in Spin, Manson was quoted as saying of Wood, ‘ I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer ‘.
Though his representative later dismissed the comments as a theatrical rock star interview promoting a new record and not a factual account.
