When on Monday actress Evan Rachel Wood, Manson's ex-partner, accused him of abusing her "horribly" for years, other women also reported having suffered rape and physical and emotional abuse at the hands of the successful musician. Manson denies the allegations.



Marilyn Manson, the rock superstar who has sold tens of millions of records after reaching commercial success in the late 1990s, has been one of the most spoiled artists in the American music industry for decades.

But this Monday his record company decided to

end ties with the 52-year-old musician and not promote his eleventh studio

album, 

We Are Chaos,

after one of his ex-partners publicly accused him of sexual and emotional abuse during the time they were together.

In an Instagram post that has put Manson at the center of the latest #MeToo scandal in America, actress and singer Evan Rachel Wood accused the rocker, whose real name is Brian Warner, of having "brainwashed" him and "Manipulated into submission" during their relationship about 15 years ago.

Wood, star of the HBO series Westworld, had often said in recent years that he had suffered abuse in a relationship, but without naming the person.

"The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson," Wooden said his post last Monday.

"He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horribly abused me for years."

No "fear of retaliation"

Wood and Manson's relationship became public in 2007, when he was 38 and she was 19. In 2010 they separated.  

The actress, now 33, said Manson "brainwashed" her and "manipulated her into submission."

“No more living in fear of reprisals, slander or blackmail.

I am here to expose this dangerous man and expose the many industries that have allowed him to do so, before he ruins more lives, ”he said.

"I am with the many victims who will no longer be silent," he concluded.
