Marilyn Manson has recently been the subject of serious allegations. Marilyn must have had the most supportive wife in history. Despite a slew of heinous allegations, including rape, from numerous ex-girlfriends, the shock rocker’s spouse remains by his side. According to Billboard, Marilyn Manson accuser and Game of Thrones actress Esme Bianco claimed in a new court filing that the rock singer blocked a video of her that was to be used as part of Deftones’ current North American tour dates as part of their stage set.
The motion, filed recently in federal court in Los Angeles, expands Bianco’s March 2021 sexual assault lawsuit against Manson. Bianco adds “tortious interference” to her claims in the new documents, claiming Manson retaliated against her by convincing the Deftones to remove her images from the video, depriving her of the opportunity for exposure. Consequence revealed the filing statement.
Ms. Bianco expected an economic benefit from significant public exposure via [Deftones’] worldwide tour and the opportunity to continue working with the highly sought-after creative director who oversaw the project.
It accuses Manson of murder “contact[ed] the band [to] confront them over the Deftones’ decision to work with Ms. Bianco. [Manson] used his power and influence in the entertainment industry to interfere with Ms. Bianco’s ability to continue working with the Deftones.”
Fred Sablan, a former member of Marilyn Manson’s band, is the Deftones’ current touring bassist, having taken over for Sergio Vega. Manson’s ex-girlfriend is Bianco; the two dated in 2011. Several women accused Manson of sexual assault and other abuse last year, sparked by an allegation from Evan Rachel Wood, the musician’s former fiancée, before Bianco joined them.
As a result of the accusations, Manson has faced lawsuits and has been the subject of an investigation. Wood claimed in January that she was “essentially raped on camera” during a sex scene with Manson in the video for his Eat Me, Drink Me single “Heart-Shaped Glasses” from 2007.
He denied the claim, as he had previously denied sexually abusing and torturing Wood and other women. In March, Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, filed a defamation suit against Wood and opened the case file. Wood responded on the television show The View.
According to the musician’s attorney, Manson “did not have sex with Evan on that set, and she knows that is the truth. Of all the false claims that Evan Rachel Wood has made about Brian Warner, her imaginative retelling of the making of the ‘Heart-Shaped Glasses’ music video 15 years ago is the most brazen and easiest to disprove.”
Manson has been largely absent from the public eye since the initial allegations against him were made public last year, with the exception of collaborating with hip-hop artist Kanye West on his Donda series of albums and appearing alongside him at surrounding listening events.
