Marilyn Manson Files Motion To Dismiss Esmé Bianco’s Sexual Assault Lawsuit

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. 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 assault.

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 another 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 abuse allegations, Manson also got in trouble after he allegedly spit on a videographer during an August 18, 2019 performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH. He has since turned himself in for that incident, but 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.

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.

Ashley Morgan Smithline Files Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson For Sexual Assault, Sexual Battery, Human Trafficking, Etc.

According to Rolling Stone, Ashley Morgan Smithline has filed a lawsuit against Marilyn Manson (aka Brian Warner) for sexual assault, sexual battery, human trafficking, and more. This news comes after she previously opened up about a number of disturbing instances of abuse and sexual violence that she suffered when she was with the singer.

Smithline previously accused Manson of sexually assaulting her “countless times,” cutting her with a “swastika-emblazoned knife,” making her enter into a blood pact, and locking her in a glass soundproof room, which he called “the bad girls room.” She has since filed a suit against the musician for sexual assault, sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unlawful imprisonment, and violations of the Bane Act and the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act. She is currently seeking damages, as well as other legal and equitable relief.

Smithline said Manson originally contacted her in the summer of 2010, while she was in Bangkok, Thailand. He then reportedly became obsessed with her, telling her she “was the perfect girl for him” and asking her to send him photos. He later had her fly out to Los Angeles, CA with the incentive that he would get her a role in Eli Roth’s remake of “True Romance.” Shortly after she arrived, he had her move in with him.

Smithline went on to say that their relationship was consensual at first, but things quickly turned horrifying. She says there was even one day when she woke up to find herself bound with Manson penetrating her and ignoring her pleas to stop. She also claims that he manipulated her “into a state of near-total isolation, both physically and emotionally,” continuously threatened to kill her, and demeaned her in front of his friends and bandmates. Smithline, who is of Jewish descent, also said that Manson would have her bring him Nazi paraphernalia and would often use anti-Semitic language.

Furthermore, Smithline also alleges that Manson took sexual pictures of her and threatened to use them to destroy her career. You can read more about all of that HERE.

Another Woman Has Filed A Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson Following Rape And Assault Allegations

According to TMZ, Marilyn Manson has been hit with another lawsuit. A woman, identified as “Jane Doe,” decided to pursue legal action against the singer after accusing him of a number of disturbing things including rape and assault.

The woman claims that she started dating Manson in 2011 and that he made her watch a sickening home video called “Groupie.” As reported by TMZ, the clip showed Manson “tying a young fan to a chair and forcing her to drink a glass of a band member’s urine, threatening her with a gun and possibly pistol-whipping her.” The woman says the video was filmed following a 1996 show at the Hollywood Bowl and that the musician kept it locked up in a safe. However, a representative for Manson claims the video “was a scripted short film meant to be used for a future project that was never officially released.”

Furthermore, “Jane Doe” also claimed that Manson assaulted and raped her. She says she went to his house to return a key when he “forced her to the ground and raped her while she was face-down.” He also allegedly threatened to kill her after the incident.

The woman is currently suing for damages. She also wants a declaration saying that Manson broke the law.

This news comes after multiple women accused Manson of abuse. 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 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.

For his part, Manson claimed that the accusations “are horrible distortions of reality.”

Aside from the above mentioned abuse allegations, Manson is also wanted in New Hampshire for two counts of misdemeanor simple assault after allegedly spitting on a videographer during an August 18, 2019 performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. The Gilford Police Department recently confirmed that a warrant has already been issued for that incident.

Warrant Issued For Marilyn Manson On Assault Charges In New Hampshire

The Gilford Police Department in New Hampshire have issued an arrest warrant for Marilyn Manson. According to TMZ, the singer is wanted in the state for two counts of misdemeanor simple assault after allegedly spitting on a videographer during an August 18, 2019 performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.

The Gilford Police Department issued the following statement on Facebook:

“The Gilford Police Department has an active arrest warrant for Brian Hugh Warner (aka: Marilyn Manson) for two counts of Class A misdemeanor Simple Assault stemming from a 2019 incident at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. The alleged assaults involved a videographer. Mr. Warner, his agent and legal counsel have been aware of the warrant for some time and no effort has been made by him to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges.

• Mr. Warner had been performing a concert at the Bank of NH Pavilion on August 18, 2019, when the alleged simple assaults occurred.

• The issuance of an arrest warrant is not a presumption of guilt.

• The videographer had been subcontracted by a NH based company to video the concert, and had been located in the stage pit area when the alleged assaults occurred.

• A Class A misdemeanor in NH can carry a possible jail sentence of less than one year and a fine of $2,000.00 or less.

• The alleged assaults are not sexual in nature as has been asked by several other media outlets due to a number of other allegations made against Mr. Warner.”

Manson’s attorney Howard King has since issued a statement to People denying the allegations:

“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.”

Despite King’s statement, witnesses have said the spitting was intentional. One of them said the following:

“He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated. He noticed this and kept purposely spitting on her camera. I think her final straw is he got on the floor, got within 2-3 feet of her and hacked a giant snot rocket at her not the camera. She was pissed off and disgusted so she stormed off and he just laughed. I stopped listening to his music after that and told my husband I would never go to another one of his concerts again.”

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 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.

Marilyn Manson’s Former Assistant Sues Singer For Sexual Assault, Harassment, Battery, Etc.

According to Rolling Stone, Marilyn Manson’s former assistant Ashley Walters has filed a lawsuit against the singer. She decided to pursue legal action after accusing him of sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual harassment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and more.

According to the suit, Walters met Manson after connecting through social media in March 2010. At the time, Walters was an aspiring photographer and the musician reportedly reached out to her about her work. They eventually met up in person, but he allegedly pinned her to a bed and tried to kiss and grope her without consent.

After that incident, Manson was said to have acted more professional before agreeing to give Walters a chance to be his director of photography. However, he said he would only give her the job if she agreed to film a video, while wearing nothing but underwear and a Nazi jacket. The suit went on to say that this was the shock rocker’s way of “auditioning” people and that he filmed other employees in Nazi paraphernalia as well. He also allegedly made them say damning and offensive things, so he could blackmail them if need be.

Furthermore, Walters claimed that Manson would offer her to his friends, including actors, directors and musicians, a number of which groped and kissed her without consent. On top of that, she also said that Manson had her watch a video in which he abused a young fan by stripping, whipping, and pulling a gun out on her.

Walters also said that Manson would try to intimidate her by making threats, saying that he had gang affiliations and that he could get people killed. She went on to say that the musician was also physically and verbally abusive to her and his exes. Walters also claimed that he bragged to her about getting away with rape and that he would hide drugs in her bags while traveling.

Walters became Manson’s personal assistant in August 2010, but was fired in July 2011, after she made contact with actress Esmé Bianco (“Game Of Thrones”), Manson’s ex-girlfriend who is also suing him for sexual assault and human trafficking. Walters was ultimately rehired, but was fired again in October 2011. After that, Manson allegedly harassed her by hacking her Facebook and accusing her of stealing a piece of art.

The lawsuit says Walters is currently seeking back pay, lost wages, and unspecified damages. Furthermore, she wants Manson to delete all of the images and footage that he has of her and images of other women that were obtained without consent. She also wants Manson‘s employees to participate in anti-sexual harassment and anti-sexual violence training.

For their part, Manson‘s team has “vehemently denied” all of Walters’ allegations.

As previously reported, the accusations against Manson were initially spurred by actress Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”), 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 Bianco, who accused him of abuse and human trafficking, actress Bianca Allaine, who described him as the “most terrifying person [she has] ever met in [her] life,” and actress/model Ashley Morgan Smithline, who was sexually assaulted and abused multiple times.

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 another 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.

Ashley Morgan Smithline Shares More Details Regarding Her Disturbing Abuse Allegations Against Marilyn Manson

Ashley Morgan Smithline, one of 15 women who have accused Marilyn Manson of abuse, has further opened up about her time with the singer. During a recent interview with People, the actress/model detailed a number of horrific instances of abuse and sexual violence that she suffered.

Here’s an excerpt from the People article:

“Over the course of two years, Smithline says that along with being sexually assaulted by the rock star countless times, Manson, 52, bit her, whipped her, cut her with a swastika-emblazoned knife and shoved his fist in her mouth during sex. She says he also forced her to do a blood pact and that she was locked into what he called ‘the bad girls’ room,’ a glass, soundproof room, whenever she ‘pissed him off.'”

Smithline, who is of Jewish descent, also said that Manson would have her bring him Nazi weapons that he used on her. On top of that, she also said that the musician cut his initials into her thigh and would fill her with absinthe and cocaine. Smithline further stated:

“I didn’t know that you could rape someone that you were in a relationship with. There’s a difference between waking up to someone having sex with you nicely in the morning and waking up tied up with someone having sex with your unconscious body. Like, being tied up and screaming, not enjoying it, and him laughing like sadistically.”

“I never stood up to him ever, because I knew that would be more abuse and more torture and I just didn’t want it. There was a time where, during a rape there was a struggle, and my nose broke.”

She also said that Manson became more violent as the relationship continued:

“He made it very clear that I was replaceable, that I was vulnerable, that I was extinguishable. That he could kill me at any moment and he would remind me when I was tied up or whatever. But ‘I could kill you at anytime’.

At one point I brought up ‘do you want me to kill myself?’ ‘Do you want me to just kill myself?’ So he decided it was a good idea to show me clips of suicide scenes from movies.

And I’ve asked the other girls that I’ve spoken to that are victims of him, what do you think his objective was? And we all agree that, we think that he honestly wanted us all to kill ourselves.”

She added:

“…People are like ‘you knowingly entered into a BDSM relationship’—I don’t know what that is now even? …I didn’t know what that was then and that wasn’t what he presented at all.

He didn’t say we’re gonna have a relationship where you’re gonna kneel down or lay on the bed and I’m gonna whip you with a swastika whip or I’m gonna cut you while we’re having sex or we’re gonna have a blood pact, I’m gonna drink your blood, you’re gonna drink mine.

I didn’t know like… Obviously I knew that was weird, but I was already taken, I was already there. And the more I did for him, the more I let him hurt me, the more I loved him and the more I was proving myself to him. He found me as a vulnerable shell of a person and he hollowed me out more and more.”

Smithline also commented on going public with her story:

“I’m not a victim. I’m a fucking survivor. I want people to know who he is, and it’s worth it if not one more woman gets hurt again.”

A spokesperson for Manson has since issued a statement as well:

“We strongly deny [Smithline‘s] There are so many falsehoods within her claims that we wouldn’t know where to begin to answer them. This relationship, to the limited extent it was a relationship, didn’t last one week.”

As previously reported, the accusations against Manson were initially spurred by actress Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”), who said that the musician “horrifically abused [her] for years.” Since then multiple women have come forward with allegations against the singer, including actress Esmé Bianco (“Game Of Thrones”), who has since sued the shock rocker after accusing him of abuse and human trafficking, and actress Bianca Allaine, who described him as the “most terrifying person [she has] ever met in [her] life.”

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 another 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.”

Marilyn Manson’s Attorney Comments On Esmé Bianco’s Lawsuit: “These Claims Are Provably False”

As previously reported, actress Esmé Bianco (“Game Of Thrones”) has filed a lawsuit against Marilyn Manson and his former manager Tony Ciulla after accusing the shock rocker of disturbing instances of abuse and human trafficking. Now, Manson’s attorney Howard E. King has commented on the suit in a statement that was sent to the Associated Press. You can read that below:

“These claims are provably false. To be clear, this suit was only filed after my client refused to be shaken down by Ms. Bianco and her lawyer and give in to their outrageous financial demands based on conduct that simply never occurred. We will vigorously contest these allegations in court and are confident that we will prevail.”

Actress Esmé Bianco Files Lawsuit Against Marilyn Manson For Sexual Assault & Human Trafficking

Actress Esmé Bianco (“Game Of Thrones”) has filed a lawsuit against Marilyn Manson and his former manager Tony Ciulla. This news comes after she previously accused the singer of abuse and human trafficking.

According to Rolling Stone, Bianco filed the suit in a California court earlier today (April 30) and it says that the shock rocker drugged, tortured and raped her from 2009 to 2011. This includes cutting her “with a Nazi knife during sex,” using “drugs, force, and threats of force to coerce sexual acts from Ms. Bianco on multiple occasions,” engaging in sexual acts while she was unable to give consent, and “spanking, biting, cutting, and whipping Ms. Bianco’s buttocks, breasts, and genitals… all without the consent of Plaintiff.”

Bianco also alleged that Manson and Ciulla “violated the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act” by “bringing her from London to Los Angeles under the pretense that she would be acting in a music video that never came out and a film that was never made.” She also added that since the singer sponsored her work visa, he “was able to control [her] by threatening to withdraw support if she displeased him.”

The suit also said that Manson would force Bianco into “unpaid labor,” which included “serving and preparing food for [him] and his guests, cleaning his apartment, consulting on his album, providing uncredited backup vocals during the creative process for the album Born Villain, and being offered up to his guests and bandmates to ‘spank.’” It went on to say that Manson also “implied that because he had brought Ms. Bianco to the United States and provided housing, she owed him labor and sexual intimacy.”

Bianco also claimed that Ciulla and his management company were aware of the abuse and let it continue for financial benefits. Former assistants were said to have discussed Mason’s abuse with Ciulla, but “management had a vested interest in supporting his violent tendencies to encourage the creation of his ‘art’ and the promotion of the brand of Marilyn Manson.”

Bianco is currently seeking an unknown amount of damages. She told Rolling Stone the following:

“As millions of survivors like myself are painfully aware, our legal system is far from perfect. This is why I co-created the Phoenix Act, a law which gives precious additional healing time to thousands of domestic violence survivors. But while I fight for a more just legal system, I am also pursuing my right to demand my abuser be held to account, using every avenue available to me.

For far too long, my abuser has been left unchecked, enabled by money, fame and an industry that turned a blind eye. Despite the numerous brave women who have spoken out against Marilyn Manson, countless survivors remain silenced, and some of their voices will never be heard. My hope is that by raising mine, I will help to stop Brian Warner from shattering any more lives and empower other victims to seek their own small measure of justice.”

This news comes after one of Manson’s latest accusers, actress Bianca Allaine, said that she was planning to speak with the FBI.
