Judge Allows Esmé Bianco’s Rape & Abuse Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson To Proceed

According to Deadline, a U.S. District Court Judge has ruled that the lawsuit filed against Marilyn Manson (aka Brian Warner) by actress Esmé Bianco will be allowed to proceed. As previously reported, Bianco filed the suit after accusing the singer of sexual assault and human trafficking.

Manson’s lawyer Howard E. King previously tried to get the lawsuit dismissed due to the case exceeding California’s statute of limitations. He also claimed that the allegations are “untrue, meritless, and a key component of a coordinated attack” by “co-conspirators.” However, the judge has since ruled that “a reasonable jury could find that the effects of Warner’s alleged unconscionable acts, including the perceived threat to Plaintiff’s safety, immigration status, and career, persisted years after her last contact with Warner.” Manson will now have 14 days to file a formal answer to each of the lawsuit’s claims. It’s also worth noting that the shock rocker’s former manager Tony Ciulla was originally named as a defendant, but has since been dropped. Bianco commented:

“My hope is that this ruling empowers other survivors to pursue justice for themselves while signaling to abusers that they cannot bully victims into silence.”

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 Bianco, 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.

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.

Woman Files Amended Rape & Death Threat Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson Following Recent Dismissal

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.

Judge Dismisses One Of The Sexual Assault Lawsuits Filed Against Marilyn Manson

According to Rolling Stone, Judge Gregory Keosian has 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. However, the judge said that the “delayed discovery” was not sufficient enough to bypass the statute of limitations. Despite this, the woman still has 20 days to file a more detailed complaint.

The woman’s legal team said the following:

“Marilyn Manson wants to silence our client about her rape. He tried to use technical legal arguments to get her case thrown out altogether. The judge thoughtfully analyzed the case law, and rightfully held that her case can go forward, so long as she amends her complaint to add some additional details. We intend to amend with those additional details very shortly, and look forward to the opportunity to make Manson answer for his actions.”

According to USA Today, Marilyn Manson (aka Brian Warner) has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit that was filed against him by actress Esmé Bianco. As previously reported, Bianco filed the suit after accusing the singer of sexual assault and human trafficking.

Manson’s lawyer Howard E. King says the lawsuit should be dismissed due to the case exceeding California’s statute of limitations. He also claimed that the allegations are “untrue, meritless, and a key component of a coordinated attack” by “co-conspirators.” The filing also alleges that the women who have come forward with allegations against Manson are “cynically and dishonestly seeking to monetize and exploit the #MeToo movement” by “desperately trying to conflate the imagery and artistry of Warner’s ‘shock rock’ stage persona, ‘Marilyn Manson,’ with fabricated accounts of abuse.” It also claims that Bianco and other women “spent months plotting, workshopping, and fine-tuning” their allegations into “twisted tales that bear no resemblance to reality.” Bianco has yet to comment on the motion.

As previously reported, Manson is currently facing abuse allegations from at least 16 women.

Marilyn Manson Turns Himself In Over Spitting Incident At New Hampshire Concert

According to TMZ, Marilyn Manson (aka Brian Warner) has officially turned himself into the Los Angeles Police Department to face two counts of misdemeanor simple assault charges. This news comes after police in Gilford, NH issued an arrest warrant for the singer after he allegedly spit on a videographer during an August 18, 2019 performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.

Manson was reportedly booked on the charges on July 2 and was released on the conditions that he not commit any crimes, not have any contact with the alleged victim, and to appear at all upcoming court hearings. As previously reported, the misdemeanors could result in a fine of up to $2,000 and possibly a jail sentence of under a year. Manson‘s attorney Howard King previously said the following about the situation:

“It is no secret to anyone who has attended a Marilyn Manson concert that he likes to be provocative on stage, especially in front of a camera. This misdemeanor claim was pursued after we received a demand from a venue videographer for more than $35,000 after a small amount of spit came into contact with their arm. After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply. This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout.”

Deputy police Chief Kristian Kelley of Gilford, NH also issued a statement:

“The victim reported the alleged crime to us the day after she had been assaulted, which is contrary to a statement Mr. Warner’s LA-based attorney made regarding the fact the victim had been looking for a $30k payout and when turned down proceeded with filing a police report. That is emphatically false.”

This news comes after multiple abuse allegations were also leveled against Manson. Those accusations were initially spurred by actress Evan Rachel Wood, who said that the musician “horrifically abused [her] for years.” Since then at least 15 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 assault.
