The Hollywood Reporter reports that officials have confirmed that they are “investigating allegations of domestic violence against Brian Warner, also known as” Marilyn Manson, “over alleged incidents that occurred between 2009 and 2011 while Manson was living in West Hollywood.
On February 1, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood came forward to accuse Manson of caring for her and abusing her for “years”.
“My perpetrator’s name is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” Wood wrote in an Instagram post.
“He cared for me as a teenager and abused me terribly for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail.
“I’m here to expose this dangerous man and explore the many industries that have empowered him before he ruins more lives. I stand by the many victims who will no longer be silent. “
Wood started dating Manson in 2007 when she was 19 years old and he was 36 years old. They were engaged for seven months but separated in 2010.
The actress previously talked about an abusive relationship that allegedly included “threats to my life, strong gas lights and brainwashing, waking up with the man who said he loved me and what he thought was my unconscious body”.
Since Wood’s claims, several other women have come forward to make similar allegations against Manson.
Manson has denied all allegations, calling them “terrible distortions of reality”.
He has been dropped by his record label Loma Vista and agency CAA since the allegations were made.
He was also removed from several TV shows in which he was supposed to star, including Creepshow and American Gods.
