Phoebe Bridgers says Marilyn Manson had a ‘r*pe room’ in his home

UK News

Phoebe Bridgers has said Marilyn Manson had a ‘r*pe room’ in his home as she slammed people now ‘pretending to be shocked’ about the abuse allegations as ‘f**ing pathetic’. 

Indie singer Bridgers tweeted Thursday claiming she visited Manson’s home as a teenager and the 52-year-old rock star showed her a room he described as his ‘r*pe room’.

She said she ‘stopped being a fan’ following the incident and ‘stand[s] by’ the women who have accused Manson of abuse stretching back many years.

Her comments came just hours after cops swarmed the rock star’s Hollywood home Wednesday night to carry out a ‘welfare check’ after a concerned friend was unable to get in touch with him.  

Manson has been rocked this week by accusations from at least 11 women including actor Evan Rachel Wood who said he groomed and ‘horrifically abused’ her for years.  

Manson has denied all allegations calling them ‘distortions of reality’ but has since been dropped from his record label and talent agency.

Bridgers joined the mounting list of women to make accusations against Manson in a social media post Thursday. 

‘TW: I went to Marilyn Manson’s house when I was a teenager with some friends. I was a big fan,’ Bridgers wrote in the social media post Thursday.

‘He referred to a room in his house as the ‘r*pe room’.’

The singer said at the time she thought it was a poor joke but is now throwing her support behind Manson’s alleged victims. 

‘I thought it was just his horrible frat boy sense of humor,’ she tweeted. 

‘I stopped being a fan. I stand with everyone who came forward.’

In a follow-up tweet, Bridgers called Manson’s label, management, and band all ‘f**ing pathetic’ and claimed everyone ‘knew’ about his behavior.   

‘The label knew, management knew, the band knew. Distancing themselves now, pretending to be shocked and horrified is f**ing patheticc,’ she wrote.  

At least 11 women have now come forward to accuse Manson of abusing them including claims of abuse, sexual assault, sleep deprivation, and one alleged incident where he held a gun to a woman’s head.  

LAPD cops were called to Manson’s Hollywood Hills home over concerns for his safety Wednesday night amid the growing number of allegations against him. 

Four police cruisers and an LAPD helicopter were dispatched to Manson’s home around 6.00pm to perform a ‘welfare check’ on the 52-year-old after a concerned friend couldn’t get in touch with him, reported TMZ

An LAPD spokesperson told DailyMail.com officers from the North Hollywood division responded to a call for a welfare check at a home on the 3400 block of Troy Drive, Studio City, around 6.00pm Wednesday.   

Sources told TMZ the call was made by a friend of the singer who had grown concerned something had happened to Manson when they couldn’t get in touch with him for several hours.   

Officers arrived on the scene and tried to make contact with Manson numerous times but no one answered the door. 

They also knocked on the doors of the rock star’s neighbors on both sides. 

After getting no response from Manson the cops left the scene returning with more officers and a police helicopter around two hours later, a witness told The Sun.  

There was a heavy police presence with four cop cruisers on the ground while a police helicopter circled overhead, shining a spotlight onto the home.

Police later told DailyMail.com they were able to make contact with someone and found there was ‘no evidence of any trouble whatsoever’ at the property.  

The spokesperson said they could not confirm whether it was Manson they had managed to make contact with due to confidentiality. 

However law enforcement sources told TMZ Manson did not respond to the officers but that the police had eventually managed to get in touch with his rep who assured them he was fine and just didn’t want to come out of his home.  

On Monday, five women made coordinated statements on Instagram about how Manson allegedly treated them.

They are Westworld actress Wood, 33; an artist known only as Gabriella; photographer Ashley Walters; model Sarah McNeilly; and model Ashley Lindsay Morgan.

They claimed they had been victims of sexual misconduct, manipulation, and physical and emotional abuse at Manson’s hands.

The women’s allegations vary but all say Manson left them with PTSD after forcing them into blood pacts, plying them with drugs, becoming violent with them and gaslighting them. 

Westworld star Wood, now 33, was engaged to Manson for eight months in 2010.  

She has in the past spoken about being abused but did not name her abuser. 

In her statement on Monday, she wrote: ‘The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.  He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years.  

‘I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.

‘I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.’  

Artist Gabriella claimed she dated Marilyn Manson for six months between 2015 and 2016 and that he drove her to attempt suicide after tying her up, depriving her of sleep and plying her with drugs during their relationship which began when she was 22 and he was 46. 

She shared photographs of herself with Manson and texts she says he sent her to add validity to her story.  

On Monday night, another three women made allegations on social media that Wood re-posted on her account. They did not go into detail about their relationships with Manson but all three said he was an abuser.

Those women are Scarlett Kapella, Brittany Leigh, and Torii Lynn.

On Tuesday, four more women made allegations against the rocker.

CALIFORNIA SENATOR DEMANDED FBI PROBE INTO MARILYN MANSON A WEEK BEFORE THE ACCUSERS WENT PUBLIC

California State Senator Susan Rubio requested an FBI and Justice Department probe into Marilyn Manson more than a week before his accusers went public with their claims. 

On January 21, Rubio wrote to the FBI and Attorney General demanding an investigation into Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner. She demanded that investigators contact his accusers to find out more about their claims. 

On Monday morning, Evan Rachel Wood and four other women posted statements alleging years of ‘horrific abuse’ by Manson in what appeared to be a coordinated move. 

On Monday night, Wood posted a photo of Rubio’s January 21 letter on her Instagram account.

Now, Rubio’s office is refusing to say how they knew about the abuse allegations early. 

Neither the FBI nor the Justice Department will confirm if they have opened an investigation.

Rubio’s letter reads: ‘The alleged victims have named Marilyn Manson, also known as Brian Hugh Warner, as the perpetrator. 

‘I ask that the U.S. Department of Justice meet with the alleged victims immediately and investigate these accusations,’ Senator Rubio wrote in the letter.

‘As a domestic violence survivor who now advocates for victims in my role of California state legislator, I share a common trauma of emotional, psychological, and physical control at the hands of an abuser.’

Rubio added that she was ‘especially alarmed’ because some of the alleged abuse is said to have taken place in California.

Former porn star Jenna Jameson told DailyMail.com this week that Manson fantasized about burning her alive and ‘liked to bite’ during sex when they dated back in 1997.  

Manson has denied all the claims since they started surfacing.

He said: ‘Obviously, my life and my art 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.’

Comments were turned off the post, but it was liked by Manson’s wife, Lindsay Usich. She has not released her own statement.

Manson’s ex-wife Von Teese addressed the allegations leveled at Manson in a statement on Instagram Wednesday.

In it, the 48-year-old burlesque star said she had been ‘processing the news’ about her ex, who she dated for six years before they tied the knot in 2005.

Von Teese insisted the experiences detailed by Manson’s alleged victims ‘do not match’ her own experience with the rock star. 

‘Please know that the details made public do not match my personal experience during our 7 years together as a couple,’ she wrote.

‘Had they, I would not have married him in December 2005.’  

She said she left Manson and filed for divorce 12 months after they wed ‘due to infidelity and drug abuse.’ 

While Von Teese said she had not been abused by Manson during their time together, she wished ‘strength’ on the women who had come forward.   

‘Abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship. I urge those of you who have incurred abuse to take steps to heal and the strength to fully realize yourself,’ she wrote. 

Von Teese said she also appreciated the ‘kindness’ of people who voiced concern for her ‘well-being’ following the news this week.   

Rose McGowan, one of Manson’s former girlfriends, also said in a statement that while he was never abusive to her, she ‘stands with’ the accusers on Monday.

Manson has since been dropped by his record label, Loma Vista Records, talent agency CAA and he has been edited out of American Gods and Creepshow, two shows he was taking part in.  

There are now also questions around how the allegations came to the surface.

California State Senator Susan Rubio wrote to the FBI and the Justice Department demanding an investigation into Manson on January 21 – a week before the claims became public.

No investigation has been launched and Manson has never been arrested for any of the women’s allegations.  

 

Some of Marilyn Manson’s alleged victims: 

Evan Rachel Wood

Westworld star Wood, now 33, was engaged to Manson for eight months in 2010. 

The pair went public with their relationship in 2007. She was 20 at the time. 

She has in the past spoken about being abused, and testified before Congress in 2018 about being raped as part of a campaign to change domestic violence laws. She did not name her abuser at the time. 

In her statement on Monday, she wrote: ‘The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.  He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years.  

‘I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.

‘I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.’ 

Ashley Walters

The photographer from Los Angeles said Manson contacted her on social media asking to collaborate and the pair then met up.

She started working as a personal assistant to the rocker and the pair become close, but then he started becoming violent, she says.

Walters claims  he would throw plates at her and even offered her up for sexual relationships with collaborators. 

In her statement on Monday, she said: ‘I continue to suffer from PTSD, and struggle with depression. I stayed in touch with quite a few people who went through their own traumas, under his control. 

‘As we all struggled, as survivors do, to get on with our lives, I’d keep hearing stories disturbingly similar to our own experiences. It became clear the abuse he’s caused; he continues to inflict on so many and I cannot stand by and let this happen to others. Brian Warner needs to be held accountable.’

Sarah McNeilly

Los Angeles-based model Sarah McNeilly said Manson ‘lured’ her in by acting loving but then turned violent.

She claims he threw her against a wall, threatened to bash her face in with a baseball bat, locked her in a room when she was ‘bad’ and verbally berated her for ‘hours’.

She said in her statement: ‘I have been afraid to bring any spotlight upon myself as to avoid winding up in his crosshairs again. 

‘As a result of the way he treated me, I suffer from mental health issues and PTSD that have affected my personal and professional relationships, self-worth and personal goals. 

‘I believe he gets off on ruining people”s lives. I stand in support of all that have and all will come forward. I want to see Brian held accountable for his evil.’

Ashley Lindsay Morgan

The model was working in Thailand in 2009 when she met Manson through a mutual friend. 

They started talking and texting for months and he flew her to Los Angeles. 

She did not detail how long they spent together but alleged abuse and said he also asked her to bring him Nazi memorabilia from Asia, even though she is Jewish.

She says she also ‘wasn’t allowed to eat or sleep or leave’ his home.  

Morgan said: ‘I have night terrors, PTSD, anxiety, and mostly crippling OCD. 

‘I try to wash constantly to get him out or off of me. … I am coming forward so he will finally stop.’

Gabriella 

Gabriella, an artist, said she met Manson in 2015 when she was 22 and he was 46 backstage at one of his shows.

Like the other alleged victims, she said the rocker was loving at first before turning violent.  

Among her claims is that he forced her to take drugs with him and that they made a blood pact. 

She said: ‘It has taken me five years to speak out and say that I was in an abusive relationship. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and still suffer from nightmares. 

‘I blocked out a lot of the memories, but the feelings remain and manifest in various ways. The reason I’m finally sharing this traumatic experience is for my healing and because I’m done being silent. 

‘I don’t believe it’s fair for someone to not be held accountable for their horrific actions. I’m not a victim. I’m a survivor.’
