What Do We Know About Evan Rachel Wood?
Evan Woods is known for her 2017 Golden Globe nomination for her role in “Westworld”. She has also voiced Queen Iduna in Frozen 2. She had made her relationship with Mr Manson back in 2007. During this time, she was 19, and he was 38 years old.
She has also supported the Californian law that extended the statute of limitation on domestic abuse. Additionally, in 2019 she testified before the State that a man she chose not to name had groomed her when she was 18.
Her testimony read He cut me off from my close friends and family one by one, by exhibiting rage in some form or another when I was in contact with them.” He also added, “He had bouts of extreme jealousy, which would often result in him wrecking our home, cornering me in a room and threatening me.
The Allegations of Abuse
She has also discussed how starvation and sleep deprivation were due to his treatment. Ms Wood had begun fearing for her life and the treatment had broken her down. She had also mentioned how this also included him threatening to kill her.
One example would be how he forced her to kneel in the bedroom and tied her hands and feet, and beat her. He had also applied shock to her body’s sensitive parts with a violet wand device. She had also alleged how he used to call her house continuously if she tried to leave him.
With the rise of #MeToo movement in recent years, she has been striving to advocate for domestic abuse survivors. She had mentioned to The New York Times in a 2018 interview, “If you’re going to be famous, for me it has to mean something, or be used for something because otherwise it just freaks me out.”
What was Marilyn Manson’s Reaction to the Allegation?
Mr Manson’s representative did not respond to the multiple requests on Monday. However, he posted on Instagram, “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 relationships 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.” Hence he denies the allegation. Loma Vista, responsible for releasing Manson’s latest recording under their label, said that they should halt promoting his work. They shall also not work with him in the future.
