Evan Rachel Wood has made some new allegations against her ex-boyfriend Marilyn Manson. The actress and singer of Tainted Love had been together for four and a half years, starting in mid-2006 when she was 18.
Evan Rachel Wood has made new allegations against her former partner Marilyn Manson, who allege that the singer raped her in her sleep and drugged her with sleeping pills.
The actress, 34, has also claimed that her ex-boyfriend let her cook his meals immediately after she ended a pregnancy.
Evan’s new public claims are made in her new two-part documentary about her relationship with Marilyn, Phoenix Rising.
The HBO series premiere comes after it was reported that Marilyn — real name Brian Warner — has filed a lawsuit against Evan.
The Tainted Love singer, 53, is alleging in a new lawsuit that his former partner colluded with her on-again, off-again girlfriend to commit fraud and develop a conspiracy to defame him, according to PageSix.
Speaking on Phoenix Rising, Evan recalls hearing she got pregnant with her then-boyfriend’s baby while working on location for the Mildred Pierce series.
“From the beginning of our relationship, he always had a problem with the birth control I was using — and I went through, like, each type to see which one he liked, and he didn’t like any of them, so essentially he thought he wanted to. not that I was on birth control,” she claims in the documentary.
The actress went on to explain that once she realized she was pregnant, she made the decision to terminate the pregnancy and was “terrified” by Marylin’s requests after she had the abortion.
“He flew off before the abortion,” Evan recalls on the series.
“The second time it was over it was like, ‘Make me dinner,’ and I remember thinking, ‘I should rest – my body has been through this trauma… there’s an aftermath here.’ And he didn’t care.”
Evan goes on to claim that the experience drove her to suicidal thoughts and says she went to the bathroom and injured herself with shattered glass.
After her suicide attempt failed, the star claims the incident prompted her to “rebuild her life” and called her mother to help her access medical help.
The True Blood actress has also accused her ex-boyfriend of drugging her with sleeping pills during their relationship and claims he would use it as an opportunity to sleep with her while she was unconscious.
“This is also when he started raping me in my sleep,” she says.
“I would wake up. I just remember doing the mental math quickly and thinking, ‘Just stay, just stay asleep, don’t move, just don’t move’.”
The actress added: “So I would just lay there limp and still until it was over, and then I swear to God he would just throw my leg out and walk out of the room.”
The Mirror has reached out to a representative of Marilyn Manson for comment.
In 2018, Evan appeared before Congress in support of the nationwide implementation of the Bill of Rights Acts for victims of sexual assault, recalling her own experience of being abused by an unnamed abuser.
After speculation led many to believe Marilyn was the abuser, a representative for the singer released a statement in November 2020 that read: “Unfortunately, we live in a time where people believe what they read on the internet, and feel free to say what they want without real evidence.
“The effects could be catastrophic and promoting non-fact based information is completely irresponsible.”
In February 2021, Evan Marilyn named her alleged abuser through her Instagram account, where four other women also made allegations against the singer.
Marilyn has always denied all allegations of abuse and misconduct and reportedly took legal action against his ex-girlfriend earlier this month.
In the complaint, filed on March 2, 2022, Manson alleges that the Frozen 2 actress was guilty of intentionally inflicting emotional distress, defamation, impersonation and violating the Computer Data and Access Fraud Act.
Lawyers for the singer allege that their client’s ex-girlfriend never accused the singer of abuse during their time together from 2006 to 2010.
Commenting on the lawsuit, Evan said she was confident the “truth would come out.”
Speaking on The View last week ahead of the release of her documentary Phoenix Rising, she said, “I can’t speak about the specific allegations of the lawsuit, of course, but I’m not afraid.”
