    Actress Evan Rachel Wood and four other women have accused Marilyn Manson of 'horrifically' abusing them.

    Westworld star Wood, now 33, was engaged to Manson for eight months in 2010.

    The pair went public with their relationship in 2007. She was 20 at the time.

    She has in the past spoken about being abused, and testified before Congress in 2018 about being raped as part of a campaign to change domestic violence laws. She did not name her abuser at the time.

    In her statement on Monday, she wrote: 'The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years.

    'I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.

    'I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.'

    Around the same time, four other women posted similar statements on Instagram.

    They are Ashley Walters, Sarah McNeilly, Ashley Lindsay Morgan and a woman who gave her name only as Gabriella.

    In their statements, they detailed 'harrowing experiences that they claim included sexual assault, psychological abuse, and/or various forms of coercion, violence, and intimidation'.

    Mansonís reps have 'categorically denied' similar accusations in the past but they have not yet addressed the statements the women made on Monday. It's unclear why they all spoke out at the same time.

    'I continue to suffer from PTSD, and struggle with depression. I stayed in touch with quite a few people who went through their own traumas, under his control. As we all struggled, as survivors do, to get on with our lives, Iíd keep hearing stories disturbingly similar to our own experiences. It became clear the abuse heís caused; he continues to inflict on so many and I cannot stand by and let this happen to others. Brian Warner needs to be held accountable.'

    SARAH MCNEILLY

    'I have been afraid to bring any spotlight upon myself as to avoid winding up in his crosshairs again. As a result of the way he treated me, I suffer from mental health issues and PTSD that have affected my personal and professional relationships, self-worth and personal goals. I believe he gets off on ruining peopleí's lives. I stand in support of all that have and all will come forward. I want to see Brian held accountable for his evil'

    ASHLEY LINDSAY MORGAN

    I have night terrors, PTSD, anxiety, and mostly crippling OCD. I try to wash constantly to get him out or off of me. ... I am coming forward so he will finally stop.'

    GABRIELLA

    +12
    'It has taken me five years to speak out and say that I was in an abusive relationship. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and still suffer from nightmares. I blocked out a lot of the memories, but the feelings remain and manifest in various ways. The reason Iím finally sharing this traumatic experience is for my healing and because Iím done being silent. I donít believe itís fair for someone to not be held accountable for their horrific actions. Iím not a victim. Iím a survivor.'

    In 2018, Wood described being abused in front of a House Judiciary Committee as part of a campaign to pass a bill of rights protecting abuse victims.

    She did not name her abuser at the time but said: 'My experience with domestic violence was this: Toxic mental, physical and sexual abuse which started slow but escalated over time, including threats against my life, severe gas-lighting and brainwashing, waking up to the man that claimed to love me raping what he believed to be my unconscious body.'

    After ending her relationship with Manson in 2007, Wood revealed she was bisexual.

    In 2011, she reconciled with English actor Jamie Bell - who she had dated before Manson - and the pair got married. They welcomed a son together in 2013.

    It is unclear who her partner is now or if she has one. In 2019, she said she was in a relationship with a non-binary person but that person was not identified.

    Manson has, in the past, made disturbing comments about his relationship with Wood.

    In a 2009 interview with Spin, he said he had he had 'fantasies' about 'smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer'.

    He also gave a shocking account of Christmas Day 2008, when he said he called her 158 times and cut himself every time.

    'Every time I called her that dayóI called 158 timesóI took a razor blade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands. I wanted to show her the pain she put me through. It was like, ''I want you to physically see what youíve done''.'

    A rep for Manson previously released a statement to Metal Hammer saying: 'It is my understanding that Evan Rachel Wood dated multiple people around the time she was dating Manson.

    In 2007, Evan starred in Manson's music video for his single, Heart-Shaped Glasses (When The Heart Guides The Hand). She was 20 at the time +12

    'Basic internet research will give you a host of other names that have not come up in any of our discussions.

    'Your next couple of points deal with comments Manson made in Spin magazine in 2009. Your confusion around the timeline of this is extremely worrying.

    'The comments in Spin where Manson had a fantasy of using a sledgehammer on Evan and he cut himself 158 times was obviously a theatrical rock star interview promoting a new record, and not a factual account.

    'The fact that Evan and Manson got engaged six months after this interview would indicate that no one took this story literally.'

    His reps played down his comments at the time as 'a theatrical rock star interview promoting a new record, and not a factual account.'

    'The fact that Evan and Manson got engaged six months after this interview would indicate that no one took this story literally,' they said.

    The interview caught the attention of others in Hollywood, namely Patricia Arquette, who tweeted: 'Marilyn Manson cutting himself 158 xís when he called Evan Rachel Wood after breakup itís not [love], itís abuse.'

    In 2018, Evan testified in front of Congress and detailed a harrowing account of sexual and physical abuse with a partner who she did not name.

    She gave the testimony to push for all 50 states to adopt the Sexual Assault Survivorsí Bill of Rights Act.

    Evan said: 'I was not fine, and I am not fine.'

    She detailed 'sick rituals of binding me up by my hands and feet to be mentally and physically tortured until my abuser felt I had proven my love for them.

    'In this moment, while I was tied up and being beaten and told unspeakable things, I truly felt like I could die.

    'Not just because my abuser said to me, ''I could kill you right now,'' but because in that moment I felt like I left my body and I was too afraid to run. He would find me.'

    She also said: 'My experience with domestic violence was this: Toxic mental, physical and sexual abuse which started slow but escalated over time, including threats against my life, severe gaslighting and brainwashing, waking up to the man that claimed to love me raping what he believed to be my unconscious body.'

    Manson has previously said Evan told him aged 19, that she would 'die for him.'

    The Hollywood Reporter wrote that in May of 2018, a police report was filed against Manson citing unspecified sex crimes that allegedly took place in 2011.

    In August of 2018, the Los Angeles Districtís Attorney office announced that it was declining to pursue that case because of a lack of corroborating evidence.

    Mansonís attorney, Howard E. King, told The Hollywood Reporter that the 'allegations made to the police were and are categorically denied by Mr. Warner and are either completely delusional or part of a calculated attempt to generate publicityÖ. . Ö Any claim of sexual impropriety or imprisonment at that, or any other, time is false.'

    MailOnline has contacted reps for both Evan Rachel Wood and Brian Warner for further comment.

    Manson married Lindsay Elizabeth Warner in February 2020. He was married to burlesque performer Dita Von Teese from 2005-2007 and they dated for six years prior.

    According to PEOPLE, Von Teese desperately wanted him to change his sleeping hours, but he told her: 'Iím my most creative between 3 and 5 a.m'

    He also claimed that Dita's busy schedule kept her away from him, which drove him mad and, he caused him to believe that all the faults were his, as she was insisting.

    He said: 'But then I realized that whatís wrong about me is right. To play devilís advocate Ė but that doesnít really work, since Iím the devil Ė people would say that drugs and alcohol wrecked my marriage.

    'But buyer beware. She said she had tolerated the lifestyle because she hoped I would change and threatened to leave if I didnít. I was sleeping on the couch in my own home. I was no longer supposed to be a rock star. I was someone who had to be apologized for. I wasnít prepared to be alone. I came out of this naked, a featherless bird.'

    Dita told The Sunday Telegraph: 'Everything went downhill after we got married. I started working a lot to escape my home life.'

    In 1999, he got engaged to Charmed actress Rose McGowan, 47, but she called off the engagement in 2001, blaming 'lifestyle differences.'

    The Irish Times notes that in her book, she has mostly good things to say about his kindness towards her, and their normal-sounding life together.

    She writes: 'Manson was painting watercolours of my Boston terriers, while I was ordering glassware from Martha Stewartís online store.'

    In 2015, she addressed the split with Andy Cohen.

    When the host asked what went wrong, she said: 'Scarface. Think about it AndyÖ What was Scarface about?'

    Cohen replied: 'Coke? He did too much blow and you were not down for it?'

    Rose replied: 'It was me, it was me. Actually, I donít know. I plead the Fourth [instead of Fifth]Ö Iím honest, always, I canít help it.'

    In a statement, the actress famously said: 'There is great love, but our lifestyle difference is, unfortunately, even greater.'

    He sounds like an absolute f*cking horror story. Nobody he's been in a relationship with has anything good to say about him.

    i'm not blaming her for what happened but it was a foregone conclusion that this guy would turn out to be an abuser. and not because of the stupid make up and the mall goth persona.
    it's just another version of writing love letters to serial killers in prison.

    I guess I feel the same. Like, is anyone really shocked? Sometimes people are exactly who they present themselves to be.

    Him being into BDSM isn't shocking, same with Dita, but the whole point is consent. This was just abuse.

    Did anyone in the universe not call this one when she spoke out (without naming names) a couple years ago about horrific abuse endured in a past relationship?

    Good. Fuck this asshole.

    I always got the impression that Dita managed to keep the upper hand with him and could easily match his weirdness but who knows? That could have been smokescreen and mirrors and the truth could have been that he abused her as well and she's too proud (or private) to admit to it. Whatever the case, it sounds like she got tired of his bullshit and managed to extricate herself. If she or Rose came out with anything it would not be surprising.

    ^ Well, the thing is, Dita and Rose were both older or at least closer in age to him, maybe still abused but hopefully not as susceptible as 18 year old Evan Rachel.

    He's saying that there was consent.


    I just remember that when Dita moved out he was already with Evan and was so deep into whatever that he didn't even notice that she'd moved & taken her stuff with her.

    Woah. All I remember from Evan Rachel's relationship with him was the heart shaped sunglasses and she always called him "Manson."
