What kind of person is Marilyn Manson

Investigation against Marilyn Manson

The investigation relates to allegations of domestic violence against Marilyn Manson, the police in Los Angeles said. No information was given about the alleged victims of the shock rocker. The subject of the investigation are incidents that occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Manson lived in West Hollywood, it said.


Several women had recently made serious allegations against the 52-year-old. It ranges from sexual abuse to rape. They also accuse Manson of manipulation, forced drug use, intimidation and physical violence. The musician is said to have even threatened them with death. US actress Evan Rachel Wood (33), for example, accused her ex-boyfriend of years of "horrific" abuse. This started when she was a teenager.

Brian Warner - as Manson's real name is called - denied the allegations. His art and life have long been "magnets for controversy", but the claims about him are "terrible falsifications of reality," wrote the musician. His intimate relationships with like-minded partners have always been amicable. Manson's record company broke up with the rocker earlier this month over the allegations.

It is not the first time that Manson has been investigated. Already in 2018, after the abuse allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein became public, a complaint against Manson had been filed. It was about alleged sexual offenses in 2011. The public prosecutor dropped the case.


Manson relies on provocation in his appearances. He dresses in the so-called Gothic look and mixes elements of satanic cults in his stage show. He put his stage name together from the first name of the Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe and the last name of the serial killer Charles Manson.
