Many are questioning Kanye and Marilyn Manson’s friendship especially after several people have filed sexual misconduct lawsuits against the heavy metal artist. Kanye West has recently been criticized for defending his friendship with the rock star, who earlier maintained that all the allegations made against him were untrue.
2021 Public accusations against Marilyn
Following Evan Rachel Wood's first public sexual allegation against Marilyn Manson earlier this year, other people have also made similar charges against the musician so far.
The first accusation was made, by wood through social media whereby she publicly named Manson as her abuser. This also led to four other women coming forward to accuse the artist of sexual abuse. Additionally, a former male personal assistant also accused the artist of the same. However, Manson has gone ahead to refute the claims stating that all his intimate relationships have always been consensual.
The second accusation
The second accusation included Mason's ex-wife, McGowan, Trent Reznor, Sharon Osbourne, Wes Borland, and also a stylist who accused the rock star of not only sexual abuse but also threatening her life.
Otep Shamaya who is also a metal singer accused Mason of abusing his wife.
Esme Bianco who is a game of thrones actress also came forward in February this year with sexually abused allegations against the rock star. She also adds that she was assaulted and tortured in the process.
One of the accusers Ashley Walters alongside Wood publicly filed a lawsuit against the rock star in May 2021. They accused Manson of sexual harassment, assault, discrimination, battery, and emotional distress.
Another lawsuit was filed by a videographer against the artist the same month prompting a warrant of arrest. Manson alleged spit on a videographer during a live performance that took place in 2019. According to official police reports in May 2021, Marilyn faced two accounts of misdemeanor cases.
His former girlfriend also filed a lawsuit the same month for sexual assault describing the alleged incident as emotionally traumatizing.
On September 1st, 2021 Manson pleaded not guilty in one of his alleged 2019 spitting incidents against a videographer. One of his pending sexual assault cases was also dismissed because of the statute of limitations. It looks like the rock star is currently off the hook.
