Just as Marilyn Manson‘s abusive behavior towards females has come to light, excerpts from his previously published autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, have come to the forefront.
Five women, including ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood, have come forward to accuse Manson, 52, of abuse, which has caused media outlets to take another look at his memoir, in which he gives details of a murder he plotted against an ex-girlfriend. He also talks about threatening to rape a woman and murdering animals.
The woman he almost murdered was a former lover and bandmate called Nancy. Manson calls his plan “the perfect murder.” He wrote: “While I didn’t think it was right to take a human life, I didn’t think it was right to deny myself the chance of causing someone to die either, especially someone whose existence meant so little to the world and to herself.”
He and a friend went to her home, carrying “kerosene, matches and rags,” but a homeless man had started to follow them, and when they heard sirens heading to an nearby emergency, Manson became “paranoid” and “too scared of getting caught and sent to prison.”
Manson says when he ran into Nancy years later at a club, “The old hatred welled up again, and I wanted to do something heinous and more permanent to her, but I couldn’t find out where she lived.”
On Monday, Evan Rachel Wood, who is 18 years younger than Manson, posted a message on Instagram that read: “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.”
Manson told Spin magazine in 2009 that he fantasized about killing Wood, then 21, by smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer because she left him.
The shock rocker was recently dropped by his record label and booking agent in light of the abuse allegations, which he denied in an Instagram post that stated: “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.” ~Alexandra Heilbron
