Evan Rachel Wood, the American actress famous for the TV series “Wild West World”, has accused her ex-boyfriend, musician Marilyn Manson of sexual abuse. She says he did it to her while they were in a relationship.
Several years ago, Wood admitted to being a victim of physical, psychological and sexual abuse, but never named her abuser. Now she has accused a former boyfriend, whom she began dating in 2006, of rape and manipulation. The former lovers were set to marry in 2010, but broke up six months after getting engaged.
When Wood named Manson as the rapist, four other women made similar allegations. The Loma Vista Recordings label then terminated his contract, and his role was also cut from the new season of the show American Gods.
Manson denies the allegations against him and called the women’s statements “a horrible distortion of reality.”
