Marilyn Manson Says His Career Is Ruined And His Life Is Being Threatened Due To Sexual Assault Allegations

Unsurprisingly, Marilyn Manson is continuing to face fallout due to the horrifying sexual assault and abuse allegations that were leveled against him. In legal documents obtained by TMZ, the frontman claims that his career is in shambles and that he is receiving death threats.

TMZ shared a summary of the documents:

“Marilyn says his music is suffering as a result of the accusations, claiming he’s unable to tour and was dropped by his record label and talent agency.

Manson also says his film and TV career is in the gutter, because he was pulled from two TV shows, including one where he had a recurring role.

MM claims his art work is being negatively affected too … he says his book release and art shows are indefinitely postponed, and claims his paintings have been devalued.

What’s more, Marilyn says he’s getting countless death threats online … and he’s feeling anxious, distraught, depressed, worried, frantic, sleepless and fearful for not only his own physical safety, but also his wife’s.

Marilyn says the allegations, which he’s always denied, have made him persona non grata in Hollywood circles … claiming he’s being excluded from countless social and business gatherings.”

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 many 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 filed a lawsuit after being sexually assaulted and abused multiple times, his former assistant Ashley Walters, who filed a lawsuit against him for sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, etc., and another woman, identified as “Jane Doe,” who filed a lawsuit after accusing him of rape and death threats.

For his part, Manson has continued to deny the allegations and has even filed a defamation suit against Wood and her significant other Illma Gore. However, Wood has since commented on the lawsuit, saying that she is confident that she has the truth on her side.
