Singer, songwriter and all-round music icon Phoebe Bridgers has come forward in support of Marilyn Manson’s alleged victims by telling the story of why she stopped being a fan.

Bridgers, 26, took to Twitter to share her own experiences with Manson.

“I went to Marilyn Manson’s house when I was a teenager with some friends. I was a big fan. He referred to a room in his house as the “r*pe room”, I thought it was just his horrible frat boy sense of humor. I stopped being a fan,” she said.

“I stand with everyone who came forward.”

Bridgers also alleged that the team of people working with Manson – most of which have distanced themselves following Evan Rachel Wood’s allegations – knew about his behaviour and comments long before the allegations surfaced.

“The label knew, management knew, the band knew. Distancing themselves now, pretending to be shocked and horrified is fucking pathetic,” she tweeted.

For all of those unfamiliar with the situation, actress Evan Rachel Wood came out earlier this week with allegations that Marilyn Manson – real name Brian Warner – abused and assaulted her during their relationship.

“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years,” Wood wrote on Instagram. “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.”

Following her allegations, a slew of women have come forward with similar claims.

Marilyn Manson has since taken to Instagram to deny any claims that his relationships were non-consensual.

“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.”
