Game of Thrones star sues Marilyn Manson for sexual harassment

  • Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco filed a lawsuit against Marilyn Manson.
  • The lawsuit details instances of sexual, physical, and verbal abuse.
  • In February, Evan Rachel Wood also accused Manson of abusing her for years.

Marilyn Manson is being sued for allegations of sexual assault, sexual battery, and human trafficking.

The complaint filed by Game of Thrones star, Esmé Bianco, in California, details allegations of rape and verbal and physical abuse that happened in 2007.

Bianco said through a statement provided by her representatives that she is aware of the flaws of the legal system, but that she hopes that raising her voice will help stop Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson’s real name) from shattering more lives. Manson’s attorney denied the allegations. 

According to Bianco, the sexual harassment started in 2007 when Manson would make sexual advances disguised as “jokes” toward her. The two became a couple in 2009 after Manson invited her to star in his “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies” music video.

In the lawsuit, Bianco claimed that Manson enforced a “dress code”, required her to “sit at his feet during press visits”, and “verbally degraded her during interviews.”

Bianco further alleges that in 2011, Manson persuaded her to move in with him in a very dark apartment kept at 63 degrees where Manson would play films that are violent and sexually graphic. Bianco said Manson would reprimand her if she complained.

The lawsuit further detailed times where Manson cut her “with a Nazi knife” during sex, taking photos of the cut and posting them online without her consent. She said Manson would often force her into sexual acts using drugs, force, and threats, and rape her.

The lawsuit also accuses Tony Ciulla and Ciulla Management Inc., Manson’s former manager and management company, of enabling and benefiting from the abuse. 

According to Bianco, Ciulla and his company would be her babysitters when Manson was not around. The lawsuit claims that the management company supported Manson’s violent tendencies to encourage the creation of his ‘art’ and the promotion of his brand. 

In February, a week after Evan Rachel Wood alleged Manson for abusing her for years, Bianco told New York magazine’s “The Cut” that Manson was a “monster.” The actress said Manson controlled whom she talked to and that she even hid in the closet to talk to her family. 

Manson was since dropped by his recording label. A “Creepshow” episode featuring Manson will also not be aired.

On Instagram, Manson responded claimes that the allegations were “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.”

In February, the Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives also revealed that they were investigating domestic violence allegations against Manson. The identity of the complainant was not revealed.
