Evan Rachel Wood made shocking allegations against rocker Marilyn Manson on her official Instagram account. On February 1, 2021, Evan went public with claims that when she was still a teenager that Marilyn Manson (who is 18 years her senior) groomed her, brainwashed her, and then ultimately abused her. Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, has denied the allegations.
This isn’t the first time that Evan Rachel Wood has gone public with her allegations of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. It is, however; the first time that Evan Rachel Wood has named her perpetrator and specifically stated that Marilyn Manson (Brian Warner) abused her for years.
Evan Rachel Wood stated the following.
The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horiffically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.

Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson were engaged in January 2010 and their engagement lasted a total of seven months with the two ending things in August 2010. She has frequently spoken out and stood up for women who are victims of assault and abuse, yet she has never mentioned Manson by name. That has all changed and now, other women are coming forward adding their voices to Evan’s.
Since Evan Rachel Wood went public with her accusations, four other women have stepped forward. Their names are Ashley Walters, Sarah McNeilly, Ashley Lindsay Morgan, and Gabriella. Each woman stated on social media they suffer from PTSD due to the alleged abuse they suffered while in a relationship with Brian Warner aka Marilyn Manson.
Though Manson continues to deny the current allegations against him, he has made statements in the past that are coming back to haunt him, even more so now that Evan and the other women are taking their allegations public.
A 2009 interview with Spin magazine saw Marilyn Manson state that he had daily fantasies about smashing Evan Rachel Wood’s skull with a sledgehammer.
