Marilyn Manson Denied Evan Rachel Wood’s Abuse Allegations, But His Label, Talent Agency, And TV Shows Have Dropped Him
Yesterday Evan Rachel Wood and four other women bravely came forward to accuse Marilyn Manson, real name Brian Warner, of physical, mental, and sexual abuse. Brian’s ex, Rose McGowan, soon tweeted and Instagrammed that she stood with his accusers. Then Jenna Jameson, who had a fling with the 52-year-old musician in 1997, revealed in an interview that Brian bit her during sex, spoke to her violently, and “nonchalantly” told her he fantasized about burning her alive.
Brian has responded to the allegations on Instagram and you won’t believe what he had to say! Actually, you will. He denied that shit like every single Hollywood creep has done before him.
Obviously, my at and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality. 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.
Brian’s current wife, 36-year-old photographer Lindsay Usich, liked the post. But the comments were turned off because apparently the shock-rocker only likes controversy when he’s the one courting it:
I’ll tell you who’s not buying that “horrible distortions of reality” crapola; anyone who’s currently working with Brian. His record label, Loma Vista Recordings, tweeted that they were cutting all ties with him:

Then talent agency CAA, who also represents Evan Rachel Wood, confirmed that they dropped him as a client. AMC’s Creepshow followed suit, axing him from their upcoming season. So did American Gods. Brian had a recurring role on the show’s third season, which is currently airing. He’s already appeared twice, but Starz says they’ll edit him out of his remaining episode:

And it looks like Brian’s freedom may also be in jeopardy (fingers crossed!). California state senator Susan Rubio wrote a letter imploring Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson and FBI director Christopher Wray to investigate the accusations. Evan shared it on her Instagram:
If Marilyn Manson ends up going to prison, he better hope to Satan that the other inmates are impressed with his ability to suck his own dick. Because show pony tricks and stuntery are the only way that douchebag is surviving on the inside.
