As previously reported, Judge Gregory Keosian recently dismissed a rape and death threat lawsuit that was filed against Marilyn Manson by a woman identified as “Jane Doe.” The woman was seeking legal action after repressed memories of the alleged rape resurfaced, but the judge said that the “delayed discovery” was not sufficient enough to bypass the statute of limitations. She was given 20 days to file a more detailed complaint and she has since done so.
The amended documents were obtained by SPIN, who shared the below summary of them:
“In the amended complaint viewed by SPIN, Doe details Manson’s alleged sexual assault and abuse, claiming that Manson told her that he would ‘bash her head in’ if she reported him to the police. Doe also outlines why her complaint should qualify for the delayed discovery within the statute of limitations, including how Mason reportedly raped and abused her. She claims Manson would force her ‘to have sex with him, and to be on top of him during sex. She would pray for Warner to pass out during intercourse. When this happened, Plaintiff would try to slip away and get some sleep, but the moment she moved, Warner would wake up and demand to resume the sexual activity.’
Doe states that Manson told her ‘about his relationship with Evan Rachel Wood and that he had wanted to kill her. He told Plaintiff about a time he had tied Ms. Wood to a chair and pointed a gun at her. He said he considered killing Ms. Wood, but then decided to be merciful.’ She also alleges that in 2011, she ‘cannot be certain of the exact moment that she repressed the memories of the forced oral and vaginal rape, but knows that it was sometime in the hours or at most very few days after the vaginal rape.’
The lawsuit also claims that Manson ‘put a condom on the penis of bandmate Twiggy Ramirez (Jeordie White) and performed oral sex on him.'”
As previously reported, Manson is currently facing abuse allegations from at least 16 women. Those accusations were initially spurred by actress Evan Rachel Wood, who said that the musician “horrifically abused [her] for years.” Since then more women have come forward with allegations against the singer, including actress Esmé Bianco, who filed a lawsuit after accusing him of abuse and human trafficking, actress Bianca Allaine, who described him as the “most terrifying person [she has] ever met in [her] life,” actress/model Ashley Morgan Smithline, who said she was sexually assaulted and abused multiple times, and his former assistant Ashley Walters, who filed a lawsuit against him for sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, etc.
Wood has since shared more details regarding her time with Manson as well, including his alleged use of anti-Semitic and racial slurs. She has also claimed that his current wife Lindsay Usich and a woman named Leslee Lane threatened to release underage photos of her to destroy her career.
After all of this news broke, the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department confirmed that they were investigating Manson. Allaine also mentioned that she was planning to speak to the FBI.
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. Others that worked with Manson have also come forward, including his former assistant Dan Cleary, who said he witnessed the musician abusing Usich.
Two of his other 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 other musicians have also issued statements including Ellie Roswell (Wolf Alice), who said she once caught Manson “filming up [her] skirt with a GoPro,” 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.” Actor Corey Feldman also claimed that Manson put “spies” into his life as part of a “decades long mental and emotional abuse” campaign.
For his part, Manson claimed that the accusations “are horrible distortions of reality.”
Aside from the above mentioned abuse allegations, Manson is also dealing with a misdemeanor simple assault case stemming from an August 18, 2019 incident in which he allegedly spit on a videographer at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH.
