The Marilyn Manson Controversy: Sexual Abuse of a Minor Alleged in Lawsuit

Marilyn Manson accused of sexual abuse of a minor in a new lawsuit

On Monday, a lawsuit was filed in New York alleging that singer Marilyn Manson “sexually abused, sexually battered, sexually assaulted, and molested” minors and adults. According to a lawsuit filed on Monday in New York state court, Manson reportedly pursued the Jane Doe plaintiff when she was 16 and used his popularity to “groom, control, and abuse” her, culminating in several sexual assaults throughout their relationship. She claims that Manson’s record company, Nothing Records (a division of Interscope), did not take measures to prevent its musicians from committing sex crimes against her.

Jane Doe claims that she first encountered Manson in September 1995 when he invited her onboard his tour bus. In retrospect, she realized she was only 16 years old. “While on the tour bus, Defendant Warner performed various acts of criminal sexual conduct upon Plaintiff, who was a virgin at the time, including but not limited to forced copulation and vaginal penetration,” The lawsuit stated. Doe claims Manson “laughed at” her and ordered her to “get the fuck off my bus” after committing sexual assault on her. In addition, she claims he threatened to murder her and her family “if she informed anybody,” according to the complaint.

According to the lawsuit, as Doe got off the tour bus, a tour manager approached her and provided her with a confidential 1-800 number to stay in touch with the band. Doe claims that following their first encounter, Warner began phoning her at home, asking her to contribute “explicit sexual images of her and her friends to his fan club.” She claims he also pressured her to go to a New Orleans, Louisiana, performance on December 9, 1995. Doe claims in the complaint that Manson asked her back into the tour bus after the show, where he allegedly raped her again.

“He groomed Plaintiff by complimenting her, playing with her hair, and looking at the photos and drawings she brought with her,” the lawsuit says. “Defendant Warner then became more aggressive and again sexually assaulted Plaintiff, including kissing, biting her breast, oral copulation, and penetration,” the complaint states. “Another man involved with the tour was on the bus when Defendant Warner sexually assaulted Plaintiff. Upon information and belief, this man was an employee of Defendants.”

Doe reconnected with Manson in 1999, and he promptly invited her on tour with the band. As the lawsuit puts it, Manson “laid the groundwork necessary to intimidate and control her” by tempting her with narcotics and cutting her off her social circle. “Throughout the tour and while within the State of New York, when Plaintiff was with Defendant Warner both on concert days and on off days, Defendant Warner coerced her to have sex with him,” the complaint reads. Defendant Warner often forced Plaintiff to have sex with him and other band members or his assistant all at once. Defendant Warner provided Plaintiff with narcotics while regulating her activities, who she could touch, and who she may have sexual relations with.

The lawsuit claims that the two businesses were “aware of Defendant Warner’s practice of sexually assaulting minors and aided and abetted such behavior.” Interscope, which Universal Media Group owns, was the previous owner of Nothing Records until the label shut down. Several other types of abuse are included in the lawsuit, including aggravated sexual assault, recklessness, and the intentional infliction of mental distress. Jane Doe claims that the abuse has caused her significant mental, bodily, and emotional suffering. She is suing for “economic loss, economic capability, and emotional loss” in addition to “unspecified damages.”

Manson has previously been accused of sexual assault and grooming a juvenile. Evan Rachel Wood, who dated Manson in 2021, said he had abused her for years and groomed her when she was a youngster. As of 2021, at least three more women have filed lawsuits against Manson, accusing him of sexual misconduct. Esmé Bianco, who plays Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” filed a lawsuit against Manson in 2015, claiming that the actor sexually assaulted her, raped her, and committed other forms of abuse between 2009 and 2013.

This month, attorneys for Bianco and Manson announced that Bianco had settled her lawsuit against Manson and Marilyn Manson Records Inc. Bianco’s lawyer, Jay Ellwanger, stated in a statement on January 24 that her client made the decision “to go on with her life and profession.”

The lawsuit states that Manson harassed and threatened Doe after she came forth with her allegations against the artist. Also, that they have hacked her Instagram account and paid a popular YouTuber to post negative comments about her to discredit her.
