In recent months, a considerable number of women broke their silence to present themselves as victims of sexual and psychological abuse at the hands of Marilyn Mansonincluding some of his ex-girlfriends and a former personal assistant.
Several of them also took legal action against him while Brian Warner, real name of the rocker, continues to deny all the accusations.
In February, actress Evan Rachel Wood, gave a heartbreaking account of the various abuses she had suffered by a sentimental ex-partner and the post-traumatic stress disorder that she still suffered as a result.
At that time, many took it for granted that he was referring to Marilyn, with whom he even got engaged in 2010, but neither party wanted to confirm or deny that theory.
In fact, the singer interrupted an interview when they tried to ask him a question about it, although in the past he had admitted that he had fantasized about hitting Evan with a hammer and that, during one of their breakups, he cut himself hundreds of times for every call that she didn’t answer.
Now, Rolling Stone magazine published a new article in which it collects the testimony of several of its alleged victims, who revealed that The musician had a small changing room-sized room in his old West Hollywood apartment, built as a home recording studio, but which he used as a punishment chamber.
Manson renamed this cabin as “Bad Girls Room” and took advantage of its small space and soundproofing to lock up dozens of women and abuse them both mentally and physically. This was explained by Ashley Morgan Smithline, a former assistant and former lover of Manson.
“Even if I was yelling, no one would hear me”, is how she told it to the middle. “You fight first, and he enjoys the fight. I learned not to fight against it, because that was giving him what he wanted. I just went to another part of my head, “he said.
According to Rolling Stone, the decoration of the room was completely black with blood, swastikas, photos cut from pornographic magazines and the temperature was kept below 65 ° F (18 ° C).
Actress Esmé Bianco, meanwhile, says Manson constantly supplied her with drugs and alcohol while they lived together and subjected her to all kinds of harassment that included whipping her with a whip and electrocuting her.
Faced with this wave of accusations, Marilyn Manson stands firm in her innocence.
He previously denied them in a statement, which said: “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets of controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality. My intimate relationships have always been completely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how, and why, others now choose to misrepresent the past, that is the truth, “he said.
