Los Angeles officials are investigating allegations of domestic violence by rock singer Merlin Manson, the LA County Sheriff Department said in a statement on Friday.
Westworld TV and film actress Evan Rachel Wood and three other women said in a social media post earlier this month that Manson abused them.
On Friday, the L.A. County Sheriff Department said its Special Victims Unit “is investigating allegations of domestic violence with Brian Warner, also known as ‘Merlin Manson,’ who works in the music industry.” “
“The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011, when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood,” the statement said.
No, other details were provided.
Representatives for Manson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday. On February 1, Manson said on Instagram that all of their intimate relationships were “completely consensual” and that “others are now choosing to misrepresent the past.”
“These recent claims about me are terrible distortions of reality,” he said at the time.
Wood, 33, who gave birth to Monsoon, 52, since 2007, and was briefly associated with her in 2010, said the singer “badly abused me for years” and that “I was brainwashed and into submission” Manipulated. “
Three other women also accused Manson of emotional and psychological abuse over the past 10 years.
Manson’s record label, Loma Vista Recordings, released her in early February following public allegations.
The singer and songwriter is known for her gothic-inspired black outfits and heavy makeup. His hit films include The Dope Show and Personal Jesus.
Dozens of people from entertainment, politics, business and sports have been accused of sexual harassment or emotional exploitation since the #MeToo movement went off in 2017 following several allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Winstein. Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison in 2020.
