Marilyn Manson is under investigation for domestic violence, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. He’s been accused of abuse by his ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood and other women.
“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegation(s) of domestic violence involving Mr. Brian Warner also known as ‘Marilyn Manson,’ who works in the music industry,” a spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department told TheWrap. “The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood.”
A representative for Manson did not immediately return a request for comment.
Earlier this month, Manson was dropped by CAA and by his label Loma Vista Recordings and from appearances on several shows.
In a statement at that time, Manson denied the accusations, calling them “horrible distortions of reality.”
“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he wrote. “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
Wood, who was engaged to Manson from 2010 to 2011, publicly accused Manson of “grooming” her as a teenager and “horrifically” abusing her during their relationship. Wood, who is now 33, met Manson when she was 18 and he was 36.
“I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. “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.”
Following her post, four other women also came forward to detail accusations against Manson.
