On March 2, shock rocker Marilyn Manson (Brian Hugh Warner) filed a formal lawsuit against her ex-fiancée and “Westworld” actress Evan Rachel Wood in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging fraud, conspiracy and defamation relating to many allegations of the Antichrist superstar. received during the past year. Manson went public with the lawsuit fighting what he and his lawyers see as distortions of reality in an effort to destroy the career of a talented and highly successful figure in the entertainment industry.

The formal lawsuit, written by Manson’s lawyer “Howard King”, and published by the LA Times contains 28 pages of documentation against Wood and his mutually romantic partner and entertainer Ashley Gore (Illma Gore), accusing the two of falsifying sexual assault charges in an effort to destroy Manson’s career in the entertainment industry.

In the lawsuit obtained by Los Angeles Times, King alleges that Wood and Gore hacked into the shock rocker’s computer and social media page while posing as an FBI agent with intent to forge and distribute material. fictitious abuse letters. The lawsuit also alleges that the women were given checklists and scripts to potential accusers outlining specific acts of abuse they should claim against the musician, including a complaint about child pornography from an individual who appeared in one of his 90s shorts.

According to tmz Manson denies the claim, stating that the woman featured in the film was 22 at the time, adding that Gore was well aware of this information, further deciding to create a falsified story regarding allegations of child abuse.

According to the LA Times, King also alleges that the nonprofit “Phoenix Act,” which aims to help abused women seek justice created by Wood and Gore, was used as a cover for a profit-making scheme against the shock rocker.

The third introductory point in the lawsuit states that after their 10-year separation, Wood never accused Manson of abuse until she met Gore, who is described in the complaint as a con man who understood that an organized attack against Warner, led by Wood’s own, was fabricated. disclosure of rape and abuse could benefit both of them. According to the lawsuit:

“With Gore’s help, Wood could be rebranded from someone who ‘may still be best known for dating Marilyn Manson ten years ago,’ to an outspoken standard-bearer for victims of domestic violence or abuse. sexual assault – thus removing his reputation for having a ‘crazy past’ and his embarrassment at having been in a long-term relationship with Marilyn Manson.

Manson took to social media on March 3 in response to the situation.

“There will come a time when I will be able to share more about the events of the past year. Until then, I will let the facts speak for themselves,” the message read.

In accordance with Manson’s lawsuit against Wood, the last paragraph of the introduction states.

“The misconduct alleged here was invasive, harassing, defamatory and otherwise harmful to Warner and his career, personal life and well-being. Accordingly, Warner brought this action seeking general, special, and punitive damages against Wood and Gore in an amount to be determined at trial, and an injunction restraining their future wrongful conduct.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department finally intervened in the case last year after reports of alleged abuse were made public with officers raiding the shock rocker’s residence in November, seizing hard drives and other accessible evidence.

Manson and Woods’ former romantic relationship was between the years 2006 and 2010 when she was 19 and Manson was 37. The two got engaged in 2010 but separated in August of the same year. According to the lawsuit, Wood said she was involved in a “healthy and loving relationship. Adding, “This is who I am, and this is what I always wanted to be, and I’m finally with someone who lets me be who I want to be.”

Wood’s HBO Max documentary “Phoenix Rising” details the story of her career in the entertainment industry alongside her own alleged accounts of abuse while involved with Manson. The two-part documentary is set to hit the streaming platform on March 15-16.

Neither Wood has currently commented on the complaint or the various allegations made against her.

Alongside Wood, the allegations against Manson extend to a variety of women such as ‘Game of Thrones’ star Esme Bianco and former assistant Ashley Walters who have both filed lawsuits against the shock rocker involving cases of sexual assault, misconduct, abuse and assault.
