In 2006, 18-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood met 37-year-old Marilyn Manson. He was working on a project and wanted her involved. The two became good friends, and Evan fell in love quickly. They started dating in 2006 and went public with their relationship in 2007.
Manson immediately started love-bombing her. She said that he made her feel like they had a special bond. To show Manson that she belonged to him, he had her carve an “M” right next to her vagina to “show ownership.” He carved an “E” on himself as well.
Manson took Evan on tour for a couple of months. Evan says this was the first time he was violent with her. He started smashing things, wrecking the room and violently grabbed Evan by the arm. She recalls looking at a crew member, who just shook his head and closed the door.
Manson would use threats and blackmail against Evan. He uploaded a video of him beating a nude Evan to his website. Evan showed it in her documentary and it is evidence, but it is extremely graphic. You can view it by clicking here.
For Manson’s 2007 music video “Heart-Shaped Glasses,” Evan and Manson had discussed a simulated sex scene. However, Evan alleges that he started penetrating her for real when the cameras started rolling. People on set say they were disturbed and that he was feeding her drugs.
In this video, you can hear Evan asking Manson “who was texting to you?” To which he responds “texting you or me?”. He grows increasingly irritated with her and when she doesn’t respond he says “answer me for fucks sake or I’ll kill you”.
After hearing about the abuse, Evan’s aunt helped her escape.
After she left, Manson called Evan 158 times, and every time he called her he used a razor blade to cut himself. He brags about this in a 2009 interview, and also says he has fantasies daily about killing her with a sledgehammer.
Not long after she left, Manson released a music video for “Running to the Edge of the World” which depicts him beating up a woman who looks similar to Evan. Critics were upset at the video for promoting violence against women and noted that the woman was styled to look like Evan.
In an attempt to defuse the situation, Evan returned to their house. She says he tied her up and hit her with an actual Nazi whip from the holocaust (Evan is Jewish). She said he hit her repeatedly on the same spot and then shocked her with a violet wand on the welts.
Marilyn Manson has a long history of collecting Nazi memorabilia, and throughout the relationship, he got multiple Nazi inspired tattoos.
Manson started love-bombing her again and writing her love letters. They returned together, and he proposed to her at one of his concerts. Evan became extremely suicidal at this point and attempted suicide. Thankfully, she called her mom, who was able to get her help.
Manson would send text messages to other people about him beating Evan.
In early 2011, Evan made what she called her “final escape” when she was set to film a movie. After filming that movie, she never returned to Manson. She had since become an activist for victims of abuse. She didn’t name her abuser because of threats.
Evan started the Phoenix Act which would change the statute of limitations from 3 years to 10 years. Here is Evan sharing the story about the abuse she suffered.
In 2020, Evan had to file a police report after she received notice about threats from Manson’s wife to release explicit photos of her in which she was underage. She also had to majorly increase security at her home because of threats against her son, reportedly from Manson.
In 2021, Evan named her abuser as Brian Warner “also known to the world as Marilyn Manson”. He came out with a statement that said her accusations were a “horrible distortion of reality.”
In 2022, Manson formally announced a defamation lawsuit against Evan Rachel Wood. Manson already has a variety of people standing with him, people saying he was the real victim. YouTube lawyers, social media, body language “experts”, and primarily TikTok are already targeting Evan.
Evan is not Manson’s only victim. Sixteen women have all come out with allegations against Manson, and four have sued him for sexual assault. Here’s a video of some of the other victims sharing their stories.
Manson has been telling us for years exactly who he is. In his autobiography, he talks about his plans to murder an ex-girlfriend, threatening a girl with rape to “get her attention”, openly admits to rape, and brags about covering a deaf woman in raw meat and urinating on her.
In fact, he also admitted to throwing a perfume bottle at his mom in his 1999 book. He said he did this because his father accused her of cheating on him.
If you want to learn more about Evan’s story, she made a documentary called “Phoenix Rising.” It’s about her abuse at the hands of Marilyn Manson and how she started the Phoenix Act and got it passed.
