Los Angeles County Sherrif’s Department Confirm They Are Investigating Allegations Of Domestic Violence Made Against Marilyn Manson


Following this morning’s report from TMZ, the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department have confirmed that they are indeed investigating allegations of domestic violence made against Marilyn Manson (aka Brian Warner). A statement issued to reads as follows:

“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegation(s) of domestic violence involving Mr. Brian Warner also known as ‘Marilyn Manson,’ who works in the music industry. The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood.”

On February 01st, 2021, Manson‘s ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood publicly accused him of ‘horrifically abusing’ her during their time together over a decade ago. Wood was one of several women to publicly accuse Manson of abusive behavior on that day, with allegations from over a dozen women having since surfaced.

In 2019, both Wood and another ex of Manson, actress Esmé Bianco, gave testimony of abuse they suffered at the hands of a then unidentified individual (see here and here). Both have since publicly named Manson as their abuser.

They recounted their experiences in front of a House Judiciary Subcommittee at the time while rallying in support of The Phoenix Act, which aimed to extend the statute of limitations for reporting a domestic violence incident in California from three years to five. That act was eventually passed and officially signed into law last year.

Manson himself denied the initial allegations made against him, issuing this statement, in which he characterized them as “horrible distortions of reality.”

Since the allegations were made, Manson was dropped by his manager of some 25 years Tony Ciulla. His record label Loma Vista Recordings also parted ways with him, as did the talent agency CAA. He was also pulled from several TV roles he had filmed, including ‘American Gods‘ and ‘Creepshow‘.

This week saw third-party allegations of Manson having abused his current wife Lindsay Usich made by a former personal assistant to Manson. You can read them here.
