33 year old Evan Rachel Wood has shared more details on Instagram, explaining how she has suffered from emotional as well as sexual abuse from her previous partner Marilyn Manson, 52.
Wood claimed that she was judged because of her Jewish heritage. She shared two of Manson’s tattoos which according to her are swastikas and a Nazi-inspired symbol of a skull-and-crossbones.
“I was called a ‘jew’ in a derogatory manner. He would draw swastikas over my bedside table when he was mad at me.” she wrote in an Instagram story.
Then she continued:
“I heard the ‘n’ word over and over. Everyone around him was expected to laugh and join in. If you did not or (god forbid) called him out, you were singled out and abused more.”
“I have never been more scared in my life.” – she explained of that time.
“My mother is Jewish and I was raised with the religion. Because she converted and wasn’t of Jewish descent he would say things like, ‘that’s better’ because I wasn’t ‘blood Jewish.'” – she addd.
She also explained that when they began dating, Manson did not have these tattoos.
“Brian and I never had a ‘BDSM’ relationship. We didn’t even have ‘kinky’ sex. We weren’t having sexual intercourse when I was being tortured, before or after.” She added claiming that her torture was not part of what people may believe to be their sexual fantasies.
“I thought I was going to die the entire time,” she wrote.
Manson has previously commented that these allegations against him are “horrible distortions of reality”
On an Instagram post on Monday, Woo said of Manson that he “started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission,”
She also shared stories that were similar to hers, from Ashley Walters – a photographer, Ashley Morgan who was a student, a model by the name of Sarah McNeilly and an artist who identified as Gabriella.
Love Baily, who is an artist an activist shared her own experience with Manson on Tuesday, where she claimed that he “put a big Glock to [her] forehead” during a 2011 photo shoot.
Wood also shared screen shots of people who voiced the support for her and for other survivors.
Marilyn Manson addressed the allegations on his Instagram on Monday, in a statement in which he wrote:
“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality. My intimate relationship have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
Since the rumors started, Marilyn Manson has been dropped by his record label, as well as CAA his talent agency.
