Actress Esmé Bianco sued Marilyn Manson and his former manager, Tony Ciulla, in a complaint filed Friday in California.
Marilyn Manson sued for human trafficking and “horrifying” sexual abuse
Esmé Bianco, known for playing Ros in the HBO series Game of Thrones, alleged that the singer raped and sexually abused her.
In February of this year, Bianco detailed the relationship with Manson in an essay for New York Magazine, described the alleged abuse she experienced when she came out in 2011.
“My abuser’s name is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” Wood wrote in an Instagram post.
“He started growing me when I was a teenager and horribly abused me for years. He brainwashed and manipulated me into submission.”
“I am here to suspend this dangerous man and call attention to the many industries that have enabled him, before he can ruin more lives.”
“I stand with the many victims who are no longer silent.”
According to Wood’s allegations, other women came forward to share their own accusations against Manson, including sexual assault, psychological abuse and various forms of violence, force and intimidation.
Manson rejected all of the allegations and called them “horrible distortions of reality.”
Since the allegations arose, his record label Loma Vista and his agency, CAA, dropped him.
He was also dropped from several TV series he was to star in, including Creepshow and American Gods.
