The actress Evan Rachel Wood has denounced “terrible” abuses by his ex-partner, the singer Marilyn Manson, with whom he broke off their romantic relationship in 2010.
“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson, “the actress wrote on her Instagram account.
Wood and Manson began their relationship when she had just come of age and he was practically twice her age.
“He started harassing me when I was a teenager and abused me terribly for years. I was manipulated and I was brainwashed into submitting. I have stopped living in fear of reprisals, slander or blackmail, “Wood said in a short message that has been picked up by numerous publications.
At the moment, neither Manson nor his representatives have responded to the accusations of the actress, who had previously claimed on many occasions that she had been abused by a partner, but had not identified him so far.
“I have been raped. By a person who was my partner when we were together and on another occasion by a bar owner,” the actress told Rolling Stone magazine in 2016.
In his latest statements he assures: “I am here to expose this dangerous man and appeal to the many industries that have allowed it, before it ruins more lives. I am with the many victims who will no longer remain silent. ”
According to the magazine “Vanity Fair”, in response to the writing of the actress, 33, at least four women have posted allegations of abuse by Manson on their profiles, detailing experiences about alleged sexual assaults, psychological abuse and different forms of coercion, violence and intimidation.
Wood, lead actress of the television series “Westworld,” testified in 2018 before a subcommittee of the United States Congress as part of efforts to pass a law on the rights of people who have suffered sexual assault.
“My experience with sexist violence was this: Toxic, mental, physical and sexual abuse It started slowly, but it escalated over time, and it included threats against my life, serious psychological harassment and brainwashing, “the actress said at the time.
In 2009, when they were still a couple, Manson assured the publication “Spin” that he had fantasies every day about “breaking his skull with a mallet”, statements on which a representative assured that they had to be framed “obviously” as part of a interview of a theatrical rock star promoting his new album and not as “a factual account.”
