Marilyn Manson is well-known for his music, as well as his controversies. Several women have already accused the artist of sexual misconduct. Evan Rachel Wood recently revealed that Marilyn Manson was unconcerned about her abortion and asked her to prepare dinner.
Evan Rachel Wood reflects on her abuse charges against Marilyn Manson in Amy Berg’s two-part HBO documentary “Phoenix Rising.” Insider and the New York Post have obtained new revelations from the documentary’s second portion which will premiere on HBO on March 16, including Wood’s claim that Manson requested her to serve him dinner shortly after she had an abortion.
While filming the HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce” in 2011, Wood became pregnant with Manson’s child.
“He flew out for the abortion. I was just so scared and sad. I obviously believe in a woman’s right to choose, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t devastating. The second it was over [he] was like, ‘Make me dinner.’ And I remember being like, ‘I’m supposed to be resting — my body has gone through this trauma, there’s aftermath here.’ And he didn’t care.”
In the documentary, Wood claims that during their relationship, Manson “refused to wear a condom, ever.”
“And it was very much sex on demand, and it was going to cause more problems if I said no. You don’t have time to use birth control when somebody’s just penetrating you while you’re asleep or if they’ve given you a pill that made you black out.”
Earlier this month, Manson, whose true name is Brian Warner, filed a lawsuit against Wood. Wood’s sexual abuse charges against him were cited as defamation by the musician, who branded them a “malicious falsehood.”
“Phoenix Rising” will air on consecutive nights on HBO. The first installment, “Phoenix Rising: Don’t Fall,” will premiere on Tuesday, March 15. Part 2 of “Phoenix Rising: Stand Up” will premiere on March 16th. Beginning Tuesday, March 15, both episodes will be available to watch on HBO Max. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
