Marilyn Manson is DROPPED by record label after five women including Evan Rachel Wood accuse him of 'horrific' abuse ranging from blood pacts and sleep deprivation to drugs and brainwashing

 Marilyn Manson has been dropped by his record label after four women accused him of leaving them with PTSD and his former fiance Evan Rachel Wood named him as her abuser.  

Ashley Walters, Sarah McNeilly, Ashley Lindsay Morgan and a woman who gave her name only as Gabriella posted separate statements on Instagram on Monday around the same time as Wood. 

Their claims vary but all say Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, left them with PTSD after forcing them into blood pacts, plying them with drugs, becoming violent with them and gaslighting them.

Three say they had romantic relationships with him that started with him 'love bombing them' but then turned abusive. 

Wood and Manson dated on-and-off for years before splitting in 2010 after a failed engagement. 

In 2018, she testified before Congress as part of a campaign for domestic violence victims about being tied up, raped and beaten by a partner when she was a teenager. 

She did not name her abuser at the time.

On Monday, she wrote on Instagram: '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.'  

Words: Evan released this statement on Instagram on Monday with fans expressing their support - Manson’s reps have 'categorically denied' similar accusations in the past

'He horrifically abused me for years': Evan Rachel Wood, 33, has alleged ex-fiancé Marilyn Manson, 52, 'groomed and brainwashed her as a teenager' (pictured in June 2007, the year they went public, when she was 20 and he was 38)

She then shared the posts of the other women on her Instagram page. 

On Monday afternoon, Loma Vista Recordings announced it was dropping Manson in light of the allegations. 

'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.' 

Ashley Lindsay Morgan, a model who says she met him in 2009 when she was in Bangkok, says he asked her to buy Nazi memorabilia for him in Asia and bring it to the US. She said it felt 'so wrong' because she is Jewish. 

Manson, 52, has not responded to the women's allegations. 

After the women posted their allegations online, California State Senator Susan Rubio called for a police investigation.

'As a survivor myself, I was horrified to hear of these domestic violence allegations. We need to stand with the victims. We know they are almost always isolated from loved ones, making it that much more difficult to escape or seek justice. 

Ashley Lindsay Morgan says Manson asked her to buy him Nazi memorabilia in Asia and bring it to him in the US even though she is Jewish

'Victims are usually not believed or are threatened to keep quiet, so when they do come forward, we need to support them. 

'These allegations of physical, emotional and financial abuse against Marilyn Manson, also known as Brian Hugh Warner, must be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated.

'If law enforcement does not do that, we will not only fail these victims but future possible victims of the alleged perpetrator. We must not let that happen,' she said.

Ashley Walters said she met Manson after he contacted her on social media asking to collaborate. 

She is a photographer in Los Angeles and says she admired his work.

It's not clear from her post when the pair met or if their relationship was ever sexual.

She says she started working for him as a personal assistant after six months, that the pair became close - 'like family - but then their relationship changed.

She said he 'frequently' became violent, once threw glass plates at her and 'offered' her up for 'sexual relationships with collaborators'.


'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, I’d keep hearing stories disturbingly similar to our own experiences. 

Ashley Walters claims she was hired as Manson's assistant but that he psychologically abused her. She does not specify if they had a sexual relationship 

'It became clear the abuse he’s 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,' she said.  

Los Angeles-based model Sarah McNeilly also used the phrase 'love bombing'. She says Warner 'lured' her in by acting loving but then turned violent.

Among her claims is that he threw her against a wall, threatened to bash her face in with a baseball bat, locked her in a room when she was 'bad' and verbally berated her for 'hours'.

She did not gave dates for when they knew each other. 

'I have been afraid to bring any spotlight upon myself as to avoid winding up in his cross hairs 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 people'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.

Morgan said she met Manson when she was working as a model in Thailand in 2009. 

She claims they had a mutual friend and that after talking and texting for months, he flew her to Los Angeles. 

She did not detail how long they spent together but alleged abuse and said he also asked her to bring him Nazi memorabilia from Asia, even though she is Jewish.

She says she also 'wasn't allowed to eat or sleep or leave' his home.  

'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,' she said in part. 

The fourth woman is an artist called Gabriella. She said she met him in 2015 when she was 22 and he was 46 backstage at one of his shows.

She says he 'love bombed' her immediately.

'Things went from 0 to 100 at full speed... he worked a kind of magic on me,' she said.

An artist who gave her name only as Gabriella also accused Manson of abuse

Among her claims is that he forced her to take drugs with him and that they made a blood pact. 

'I had fallen deeply for an illusion of safety and love. Every aspect of my life was affected I suffered financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

'It has taken me five years to speak out. 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 I’m finally sharing this traumatic 

'Experience is for my healing and because I’m done being silent. I don’t believe it’s fair for someone to not be held accountable for their horrific actions. 

'I’m not a victim. I’m a survivor,' she wrote. 

In her statement, Wood said: '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.' 

She also posted screenshots of tweets written by Dan Cleary - Manson's former assistant in December 2020. He said in them that he knew Wood when she was with Manson and that by the end of their relationship, he had 'broken' her. 

Wood reconciled with her English actor Jamie Bell after her romance with Manson ended in 2010. She and Bell had one son together before splitting in 2013. She then revealed she was bisexual and dating a non-binary partner in 2019, but she did not reveal who they were.   

In the past, Manson has denied violence through an attorney. But in a 2009 interview with Spin, he made disturbing remarks about wanting to 'smash' Wood's skull in. 

He was being asked about his new album and was asked: 'It sounds like the period after you and Evan Rachel Wood broke up was really tough. What was your lowest point?' 

He replied: 'My lowest point was Christmas Day 2008, because I didn’t speak to my family. My walls were covered in scrawlings of the lyrics and cocaine bags nailed to the wall. 

'And I did have an experience where I was struggling to deal with being alone and being forsaken and being betrayed by putting your trust in one person, and making the mistake of that being the wrong person. And that’s a mistake that everyone can relate to. I made the mistake of trying to, desperately, grasp on and save that and own it. And every time I called her that day — I called 158 times — I took a razor blade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands.

'I didn’t want people to ask me every time I did an interview, “Oh, is this record about your relationship with your ex-girlfriend?” But that damage is part of it, and the song “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in The Movies” is about my fantasies. 

'I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer.'  The interviewer replied: 'Wow'. He replied: 'Merry Christmas'. 

Manson and Wood got engaged after the interview and did not break up for another year after it took place.  

In November 2020, the comments resurfaced. Then, his reps played them down as him being a 'theatrical rockstar'. 

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

'The comments where Manson had a fantasy of using a sledgehammer on Evan and he cut himself 158 times was obviously a theatrical rockstar 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.' 

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

Manson’s reps have 'categorically denied' similar accusations in the past but they have not yet addressed the statements the women made on Monday.

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 and said she had been told she could not take it to police because the statute of limitations had expired. 

'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,' she said.
