Corey Feldman has commented on the disturbing abuse allegations that were leveled against Marilyn Manson by Evan Rachel Wood and several other women. The actor/musician, who previously accused Manson of faking his 2017 onstage injury as part of a “publicity stunt,” claims that the shock rocker put “spies” into his life as part of a “decades long mental and emotional abuse” campaign.
Feldman said the following in a series of tweets:
“EVIL MANSON SHOULD B DAMNED BACK 2 HELL: THIS TWISTED EVIL MAN, HAS HARASSED & BESMEARED MY NAME 4 DECADES, SINCE HE TRIED 2 DESTROY MY SOBRIETY BY TRYING 2 COERCE ME N2 DOING COCAINE: Evan Rachel Wood & Others Allegations of Abuse Against Marilyn Manson”
“THE ABUSE THIS PSYCHO HANDS OUT, WAS KNOWN 2 ME BY THE SPIES HE SENT N2 MY LIFE, 2 RUIN MY TOUR BY PLACING #JACKIEVONRUDEBREATH & #POEINASNAKE N2 MY LIFE, WHICH GAVE HIM THE ABILITY 2 MANIPULATE MY TOUR THRU THESE “FALSE ANGELS” INCLUDING PLANTING HIS BUS DRIVER WADE ON MY TOUR”
“AS WELL AS MAKING HIS SLAVES DO HIS BIDDING & GETTING THEM 2 CALL THE VENUES ABEAD OF OUR ARRIVAL & ADDING SATANIC EVIL BANDS B4 THE ANGELIC SHOWS, SOWING CONFUSION OVER MY FAN BASE, & USUALLY SCARING A GOOD AMOUNT OF PEOPLE OUT OF THE RM B4 WE TOOK THE STAGE! BUT THATS JUST THE START OF IT, BEYOND THAT HE HAS SMEARED MY NAME IN COUNTLESS INTERVIEWS & EVEN WROTE DISGUSTING RANTINGS ABOUT ME IN HIS BOOK! #OBSESSED HE ADMITTED HES THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF SATAN! HE TOLD ME THAT PERSONALLY! #TIMESUPBRIANWARNER IM NO LONGER AFRAID 2 SPEAK #MYTRUTH EITHER”
“I STAND IN FULL SUPPORT OF #EVANRACHELWOOD 2DAY AS I #BELIEVE EVERY WORD OF IT BASED ON MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE W THIS VILE CREATURE! I PRAY JUSTICE FINALLY CATCHES UP WITH THIS WRETCHED USELESS SOUL! FIND OUT MORE BY WATCHING #MYTRUTHDOC”
Notably, one of the women Feldman mentioned, Poenia Suddarth, previously accused the actor and his manager of psychological, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
After posting his initial Twitter thread, Feldman shared an article from Celebrity Insider titled “Was Marilyn Manson Silencing Corey Feldman As He Exposed Hollywood Pedophiles?”:
He has also posted a lengthier statement on Instagram:
“THE NIGHT @MARILYNMANSON TRIED 2 USE & ABUSE ME AS HIS PLAY TOY BY TRYING 2 MANIPULATE ME N2 BREAKING MY 5 YRS of SOBRIETY 2 SNORT COCAINE W HIM, WHILE GAS LIGHTING ME 4 HIS PRESS TOUR ON #MECHANICALANIMALS WAS WHERE THE DECADES LONG MENTAL & EMOTIONAL ABUSE BEGAN! LUCKILY I WAS NOT PHYSICALLY HARMED THAT NIGHT AS WE GOT OUT SAFELY, BUT THAT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING OF MY NIGHTMARE! #ISTANDWITHEVAN & ANY & ALL SURVIVORS OF HIS DEMENTED ABUSE! Manson has been obsessed w me 4 over 2 decades! Dont #BELIEVE me?
Just LOOK @ THE PUBLISHED FACTS! He 1st wrote several passages about me in his book #LONGROADOUTOFHELL as we had met a few months prior 2 that @ a Premier 4 #HOWARDSTERNSPRIVATEPARTS IN NY where the #GROOMING process began. He grabbed my face in front of the crowd and kissed me w his Black Lip Stick that I couldn’t rub off all night. He proceeded 2 gush over me telling me what a “Huge fan” of mine he was.
He then introduced me 2 his BFF #BILLYCORGAN All of this is documented in his book! He brags about it as if I was a special needs person he was making fun of. However this encounter is not only talked about in his book but is also discussed in @jennacantlose Autobiography. She NOTES HIS OBSESSION WITH ME there. But several months passed b4 he released the book making me aware of his 2 sided nature. B4 the book came out Manson heavily pursued a friendship w me. Telling me I was his idol. Telling me he actually got his whole style by watching my film #DREAMALITTLEDREAM & my character #BOBBYKELLER was the inspiration 4 his entire look. Idk if that was #TRUTH but he used it as a way 2 manipulate me.
Months later he called me on Xmas morning, 2 wish me a “merry Christmas” & invite 2 a dinner party around the release of his book, @ the fancy Indian Hollywood hang Dar Macrabe where customers sit around on pillows as in traditional Indian style. When I walked in the rm it was quite clear that I was the “guest of honor” as the whole room stopped 2 take pictures of the moment as he hugged me, then grabbed my hand, & led me 2 the table by his side. THE PIC IS FROM THAT MOMENT! We later went back 2 his home where the nightmare began. He has messed w my life ever since.”
This news comes after Evan Rachel Wood recently started sharing more disturbing details regarding her relationship with Manson, including his alleged use of anti-Semitic and racial 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.
Since Wood made her initial statement, Manson has been dropped by his manager Tony Ciulla, his label Loma Vista Recordings, his talent agency CAA, and a couple of TV shows. 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 Shamaya, 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.”
