Actor Evan Rachel Wood recently announced her two-part documentary Phoenix Rising based around her legal battles and accusations against Marilyn Manson. Manson has since responded with a lawsuit against Wood and her friend Illma Gore for defamation, emotional distress, and "impersonation over the internet."
Now Manson's ex-assistant Ashley Walters, who has sued Manson for "sexual assault, battery, and harassment," has submitted an amended lawsuit saying she was not able to participate in Phoenix Rising due to "a constant state of fear of retribution and retaliation." Manson's lawyers also sought to have Walters's case dismissed earlier this year due to the statute of limitations.
"Defendants should not benefit from [Manson's] physically, emotionally and psychologically debilitating and threatening behavior by being permitted to use the statute of limitations as a shield," reads the amended lawsuit via Metal Hammer.
"While (Walters) could not recall many of the specific acts of intimidation, threats and coercion until Fall of 2020 or later, the compilation of numerous threatening and violent events instilled a constant state of fear of retribution and retaliation."
