Dita Von Teese breaks silence on abuse allegations against her ex-husband Marilyn Manson

Earlier this week, Emmy nominated actress Evan Rachel Wood accused her ex-fiancée, controversial Heavy Metal artist Marilyn Manson of “horrifically” abusing her throughout their 4 year relationship.

In 2016, the Westworld star told Rolling Stone magazine she had experienced physical, psychological and sexual abuse, but until today she’d never named any names. “I’ve been raped. By a significant other while we were together,” she told the magazine at the time. 

On February 1 2021, in a public statement posted to Instagram she confirmed her abuser was indeed Marilyn Manson.

Following Wood’s statement, several other women have come forward accusing Manson of similar offences. They also allege that they have suffered from PTSD, night terrors and OCD after their relationships with Manson ended.

Manson has categorically denied the allegations calling them “horrible distortions of reality”.

World famous burlesque performer Dita Von Teese was in a relationship with Manson for more than 6 years, during which they were married for one year. She spoke out on her official Instagram page saying she had not been abused by Manson.

In a 2007 interview with The Daily Telegraph, the pinup model accused Marilyn of having an “inappropriate relationship” with another woman during their marriage. 

“I get the impression he thinks I was unsupportive,” she noted at the time. “But the truth is I wasn’t supportive of his lifestyle, and someone else came along who was.” 

Von Teese’s post came hours before the Los Angeles Police Department were called to perform a welfare check on Manson at his home in Studio City, California.

A spokesperson for the LAPD said that officers conducted their investigation and there was “no evidence of any trouble.”

Since the allegations came to light, Manson has been dropped by his record label and talent agency. He has also been axed from the television series American Gods and Creepshow.
