Music: Marilyn Manson Sued For Sexual Assault by "Game of Thrones" Star


Marilyn Manson Sued For Sexual Abuse

 Marilyn Manson has faced several sexual assault allegations over the past few months. His accusers include “Game of Thrones” star Esme Bianco, who is now suing the rocker for allegedly drugging, torturing, and sexually assaulting her.

In court docs obtained by “Page Six.” Bianco claims Manson contacted her after his divorce from Dita Von Teese in 2007, making “sexual overtures” including requests for nude photos, and eventually inviting her to star in his 2009 music video for “I Want To Kill You Like They Do In The Movies.” They began a long-distance relationship, which Bianco says involved "constant abuse,” including:

  • verbal and physical abuse
  • extreme controlling behavior and public humiliation
  • forced drugs, alcohol, and sex acts
  • threats of violence and sexual assault

Bianco claims one of those violent encounters involved her being chased by Manson with an ax. She also alleges that he tried to bring a minor back to a hotel with them on one occasion. In a statement to “USA Today,” Manson’s attorney calls the allegations “provably false.”

  • "For far too long my abuser has been left unchecked, enabled by money, fame, and an industry that turned a blind eye,” Bianco says in a statement. “Despite the numerous brave women who have spoken out against Marilyn Manson, countless survivors remain silenced, and some of their voices will never be heard.”

"The process of making wine and making music, for me, is very similar,” he said. “It's a lot of metaphorically and literally listening." Check out a clip to the right.

"I feel great whenever they look on enviously as we dig in!"
