Evan Rachel Wood Alleges Abuse by Marilyn Manson

Sometimes you’re completely taken aback by a news report or a headline. Other times you see that Evan Rachel Wood and several other women are accusing Marilyn Mason of being abusive and you say to yourself “yeah, that makes sense.”

Wood took to Instagram to make her statement about Manson, saying “He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission.”

These are, at this point, allegations, but I don’t think anyone is shocked and in disbelief, even though Mason has previously disputed similar allegations from other women.

It only took a few hours for Manson’s publisher Loma Vista Recordings to drop Manson, issuing the following statement via Variety:

In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately. Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.

Wood didn’t really go into detail about what the alleged abuse entailed, but Entertainment Weekly did report details from other allegations made by women have come forth about Manson after Wood. Sarah McNeilly alleges that she was “locked in rooms when I was ‘bad’, sometimes forced to listen to him entertaining other women. Kept away from certain friends or if I didn’t he would threaten to come after them. I was told stories of others who tried to tell their story and their pets ended up dead.” Another woman, Ashley Lindsay Morgan, also said that she “got in trouble” for “behavior he didn’t approve of.”

A third woman also reported be locked up as “punishment” by Manson, and it really paints a picture of him as being controlling, at the very least. I could see the “bad girl room” thing being some kind of BDSM kink, but that requires consent and if these allegations are true, consent was not given. Consent is that the thing that separates kinky fun that people may not approve of from you being a monster.
