Yesterday, actor Evan Rachel Wood opened up about allegedly being groomed, manipulated and abused by musician Marilyn Manson, prompting scores of other women to come forward.

In the wake of the allegations, Loma Vista Recordings, Manson’s record label who released his three most recent albums, has announced that they’re parting ways with the singer.

Have a read of their statement below, as shared by 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.”

In an Instagram post last night, the 33-year-old claimed that she was subjected to years of abuse at the hands of Manson, who is now 52.

“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years,” she alleged.

“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.”

After sharing her own story on Instagram, she has since reshared recounts of abuse by other victims.

The first is from an alleged survivor named Ashley Walters who claims Marilyn Manson contacted her online over a decade ago and began grooming her.

“I didn’t realise he was gathering information that he’d later use against me,” she alleged.

“I soon became a victim of his psychological abuse – he was very skilled at gaslighting his inner circle.

“I’d witness him inflict this psychological abuse on everyone he employed, everyone he dated.”

Walters also shared an alleged text conversation where Marilyn Manson said that he wanted to “Smash Evans’ head in.”

She also shared a story by model Sarah McNeilly, who claimed Manson “wooed” her before “torturing” her.

“He (Bryan Warner) lured me in with ‘love bombing’,” she claimed.

“Posing as the perfect boyfriend. Claiming he was just misunderstood. Charming, smart, funny, charismatic.

“As he was wooing me I would come to find out that he was torturing others. Before long, I was the one being tortured.”

 

These are just two of several allegations of abuse the actress shared on her Instagram, including the following from 2018 by actress Charlyne Yi who accused Marilyn Manson of harassment and racist comments.

While Manson has not addressed the accusations at the time of publication, Vanity Fair reports that he has “categorically denied” similar claims before.
