Marilyn Manson is being accused of drugging, torturing and raping actress Esme Bianco. The Game of Thrones star filed a lawsuit against Manson, claiming such abuse took place between 2009 and 2011, according to TMZ.
He allegedly flew Bianco from London to Los Angeles in early 2009 to film a video for his song “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies,” but after she arrived, she discovered there was no film crew. Bianco claims Manson gave her drugs and alcohol and threatened violence and rape. According to court documents, Bianco was tied to a prayer kneeler and beaten by Manson with a whip he told her was utilized by the Nazis. She claims Manson also electrocuted her.
TMZ reports Manson visited Bianco in London in 2009, where they began a sexual relationship, which she described as controlling and degrading. In 2011, Bianco moved in with Manson in L.A. with promises of film roles. During this time, Bianco experienced sleep deprivation, verbal abuse and tantrums if she objected to the “violent and sexually graphic films” he allegedly played in his apartment.
Bianco’s other claims include that Manson once chased her around the home with an ax, he “cut Ms. Bianco with a Nazi knife during sex, without her consent, and photographed the cuts on her body,” and he posted the photos online without her consent. He also allegedly raped her around May 2011.
Manson’s attorney, Howard King, told TMZ, “These claims are provably false. To be clear, this suit was only filed after my client refused to be shaken down by Ms. Bianco and her lawyer and give in to their outrageous financial demands based on conduct that simply never occurred. We will vigorously contest these allegations in court and are confident that we will prevail.”
