Evan Rachel Wood accuses ex-fiance Marilyn Manson of sexual abuse

Evan Rachel Wood accuses ex-fiance Marilyn Manson of sexual abuse”

It is unclear whether or not the 2011 filing was linked to Wood's allegations, though the timeline of her relationship with Manson could place her allegations within that timeframe. They dated intermittently in the late 2000s, and in 2010 they were briefly engaged. While she has implied in the past that Manson abused her, this was the first time she explicitly named the shock rocker.

Wood, now 33, said in her post that Manson left her "brainwashed and manipulated into submission".

She said yesterday that she was "done living in fear of retaliation, slander and blackmail". I am here to expose this risky man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. "I stand with many victims who will no longer be silent".

Wood had testified before the US Congress and California Senate about her experience with domestic violence and rape without identifying who was responsible.

In 2018, Wood joined several other abuse survivors who testified before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations during a hearing regarding the Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights Act.

The same year, she once again opened up about the abuse in a Twitter post, using the #IAmNotOk hashtag in an attempt to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Manson, 52, became a household name in the mid-1990s with a series of hit rock albums and used a stage persona created to shock and stoke controversy.

"I felt like I was his property because he would offer me up for sexual encounters to please potential collaborators or friends", she wrote on Instagram, under the username SmashleyWalters.

"I thought I was the only human who experienced this and I carried so much guilt and confusion about my response to the abuse", Wood said in her Capitol Hill testimony. 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 people's lives", writes Sarah McNeilly. "Basic internet research will give you a host of other names that have not come up in any of our discussions", the statement read. "It was like, 'I want you to physically see what you've done'". I blocked out a lot of the memories, but the feelings remain and manifest in various ways.

Manson representatives Rick Roskin and Emma Banks of Creative Artists Agency did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
