Earlier this week, Evan Rachel Wood officially named Marilyn Manson as her abuser and inspired other women to come forward with allegations against the singer. After posting her initial statement, the actress started sharing more disturbing details regarding their relationship, including Manson’s alleged use of anti-Semitic and racist slurs. She has also since accused Manson’s wife Lindsay Usich and Leslee Lane of threatening to release underage photos of her to destroy her career.
“On Dec. 19, I had to file a police report after I was alerted to threats made by @leslee_lane and @lindsayusichofficial (Brian’s wife) for conspiring to release photos of me when I was UNDERAGE, after being given large amounts of drugs and alcohol, after Brian performed on Halloween in Las Vegas to ‘ruin my career’ and ‘shut me up.’”
She also shared a photo of the police report and a couple of photos that were part of the blackmail:
This news comes after Manson was dropped by his manager Tony Ciulla, his label Loma Vista Recordings, his talent agency CAA, and a couple of TV shows due to the initial allegations. On top of that, California State Senator Susan Rubio has also called for an investigation into the musician.
Two of his exes, Rose McGowan and Dita Von Teese, have both commented as well. Von Teese’s statement was the most recent and she said that the “details made public do not match [her] personal experience” with the singer, while also adding that “abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship.”
A number of musicians have also issued statements including Phoebe Bridgers, who said Manson previously “referred to a room in his house as the ‘r*pe room’,” Otep, who said Usich would call her house “hysterical because he was on another drug binge, threatening her life,” Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), who said that he has “been vocal over the years about [his] dislike of Manson as a person,” and Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), who said that “every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true.”
For his part, Manson claimed that the accusations “are horrible distortions of reality.”
