Marilyn Manson Issues Statement, Gets Dropped By CAA


Things keep getting worse for Marilyn Manson. In the wake of actress Evan Rachel Wood identifying him as her "abuser" for years in a post to social media on Monday (Feb. 1st), Manson has been dropped by his record label, his longtime talent agency, CAA, and his part in AMC's Shudder has been pulled from an upcoming segment on Creepshow.

Since Wood's allegations, several other women have shared their claims of abuse against Manson via social media as well, including former porn star Jenna Jameson. She told, "I cut it off after he would nonchalantly say he fantasized about burning me alive.”

Manson responded to the claims made against him on Monday night on social media writing, "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."

Another of Manson's ex-fiancees, actress Rose McGowan, has publicly supported Wood with a text and video statement on social media. She said, “I am profoundly sorry to those who have suffered the abuse & mental torture of Marilyn Manson. When I say Hollywood is a cult, I mean the Entertainment industry including the music industry is a cult. Cult’s protect the rot at the top. Theirs is a sickness that must be stopped. The industrial fame complex chooses who they protect & who they’ll let be their victims. For profit. I stand with Evan Rachel Wood and all of those who have or will come forward. And please don’t pull out the ‘why did they take so much time to come forward?’ question that shames victims/survivors, it’s what stops others from coming forward. And to all of those who have covered for monsters, shame on you. Rise and say no more.”
