Marilyn Manson dropped by record label following abuse allegations
The allegations were made earlier this week.
Marilyn Manson has been dropped from his record label following allegations of abuse made by Evan Rachel Wood.
Wood, who is best known for her roles in Westworld and Frozen 2, made the allegations against Manson on Instagram, accusing him of "grooming" her and “horrifically abus[ing] me for years."
"I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission," she said in a statement on Instagram. "I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him."
Manson, real name Brian Warner, has since responded to the allegations, stating that his intimate relationships have "always been consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
Following Wood's allegation, Loma Vista Recordings said they would no longer work with Manson. Others have also made subsequent allegations against the artist.
“In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately," they said.
“Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.”
Two TV shows have also terminated their contracts with Manson. American Gods network Starz released a statement, saying that the artist's appearance in an upcoming episode will be edited out.
They said: “Due to the allegations made against Marilyn Manson, we have decided to remove his performance from the remaining episode he is in, scheduled to air later this season. Starz stands unequivocally with all victims and survivors of abuse.”
Deadline reports that AMC have also recalled an episode of Creepshow, a horror anthology, featuring the singer. Manson and actor Wood met over a decade ago and were briefly engaged in 2010.
Wood first testified in Congress in 2018 about her alleged abuse from a then unnamed former partner. “I was not fine, and I am not fine," she said at the time.
