Following Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood’s allegations against ex-boyfriend Marilyn Manson, Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco has also come forward with her own accusations against the rock musician.
Esmé Bianco played the role of prostitute Ros on Game of Thrones, and briefly dated the rock musician – real name Brian Warner – back in 2011 after meeting on the set of an unreleased music video. She is the latest in a string of women to speak out against the singer…
Just last week, American singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers alleged that the musician had a ‘rape room’ in his house, while singer Ellie Roswell referenced him using a GoPro to film up her skirt at a concert.
According to reports, Esmé Bianco alleged that Marilyn Manson had chased her with an axe while they were living together. She also mentioned that he had intentionally inflicted cuts and bruises that left her with permanent scars.
She also alleged that he repeatedly played her very intimate Game of Thrones sex scene to guests visiting their home in order to humiliate her.
When asked why she waited so long to come forward with the allegations, or why she stayed with him for as long as she did, the actress said that she feared her work visa would be taken away from her. She was referring to her work for Marilyn Manson’s Lewis Carroll-inspired film Phantasmagoria…
“I was in survival mode at that point, and my brain had taught me to be small and agreeable,” she said in an interview with The Cut.
“I basically felt like a prisoner,” she continued, talking about the dynamic of their relationship.
“I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet.”
Marilyn Manson has not responded to the latest allegations, although he did previously deny Evan Rachel Wood’s allegations, and called them “horrible distortions of reality”.
His ex-wife, Dita von Teese, was also quick to defend him on social media, and issued a long statement claiming that he was never abusive to her while they were together.
Nevertheless, Marilyn Manson was dropped by his manager Tony Ciulla after 25 years after Evan Rachel Wood came forward with her allegations.
He has since been let go from his record label, Loma Vista, and has also been axed from the TV series American Gods and Creepshow.
