Another woman, identified as “Jane Doe” is suing shock rocker Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner). A new lawsuit has been filed in Los Angeles County state Superior Court claiming Manson raped the woman and forced her to watch a gruesome video depicting a groupie being abused.
The woman claims she started dating Manson in 2011. According to TMZ, the woman claims Manson showed her a video he claimed he kept locked in a safe. The video shows a groupie being abused after Manson’s 1996 at the Hollywood Bowl. The video depicts the fan being forced to do sex acts, tied to a chair drinking urine, be threatened with a gun and pistol-whipped.
Jane Doe claims the video left her scared for her life. In a separate incident, when the woman went to return Manson’s key, she alleges Manson forced her to the ground and raped her. She claims after he finished the rape, he threatened to kill her. She is suing Manson for damages.
A representative of Manson’s told TMZ that while they wouldn’t comment on the lawsuit, the film being referenced “was a scripted short film meant to be used for a future project that was never officially released.”
A warrant for Manson’s arrest was revealed in New Hampshire earlier this week, for an incident at a 2019 concert where he spit on a photographer.
In February, Evan Rachel Wood revealed that she filed a police report on December 19th, 2020 against Lindsay Usich, and a person named Leslee Lane (who we assume is was a mutual friend of Manson’s and Wood’s). Wood wrote she had to file a report after being alerted to threats made by the Leslee and Lindsay “for conspiring to release photos of me when I was UNDERAGE, after being given large amounts of alcohol after Brian [Manson] performed on Halloween in Las Vegas, to ‘ruin my career’ and ‘shut me up.'” She shared screenshots of a Discord conversation in which Leslee, who took the photos, revealed that Linsday wanted old photos of Wood to potentially ruin Wood’s career. The photos showed Wood in Manson’s military general hat, with a Hitler mustache drawn on her. She claimed the photo was “a part of the humiliation and blackmail.”
Wood began signal-boosting other women who spoke of the abuse they alleged Manson caused to them. Another accuser has since come forward saying Manson pulled a gun on her and accused him of drugging his girlfriend at the time. Actress Ashley Morgan Smithline accused Manson of similar abuses and said he once raped her while she was sleeping, only to wake up and find herself tied up and being penetrated by him. She showed off scars from when he cut her to People in a harrowing video.
Limp Bizkit‘s Wes Borland, who played with Manson in 1998, was the first artist to speak out, and said that everything Wood was saying was true. Trent Reznor released a statement denouncing him. Another musician, Phoebe Bridgers, revealed she went over to Manson’s house as a teenager and he joked of having “a rape room.”
Otep released a statement that Manson’s current wife, Usich, used to call Otep’s previous girlfriend in hysterics claiming Manson was drugged and abusive. A former personal assistant of Manson’s also is claiming Manson is abusing his current wife. A former “teen lover” says Manson groomed her while she was underage.
