Marilyn Manson bragged about abusing Evan Rachel Wood. No one listened

Marilyn Manson bragged about abusing Evan Rachel Wood. No one listened

Feb. 2, 2021, 4:31 AM EST

By Jill Filipovic, author of "OK Boomer, Let's Talk: How My Generation Got Left Behind"

The actor Evan Rachel Wood has, again, spoken out publicly about surviving an abusive relationship. And this time, she's naming names: The man she says groomed and abused her is washed-up Goth-rock dork Brian Warner, who prefers to be known as Marilyn Manson. Multiple other women have now spoken out, too, detailing horrifying allegations of abuse.

snip...

That Manson was reported to be Wood's abuser is one the worst-kept secrets in the music industry. Wood has repeatedly opened up about the abuse she has suffered in her life, and while she didn't name anyone, it didn't take Olivia Benson-level investigative skills to hypothesize whom she might be talking about. Wood testified before the California Senate that the man who abused her began grooming her when she was just 18. She said he physically abused her, deprived her of sleep, starved her and stalked her when she tried to leave him, calling her incessantly, she said.



snip...

For more than a decade, he has been upfront about his misogyny and abusive behavior. In a 2009 interview with Spin magazine, conducted shortly after his breakup with Wood, Manson said he called Wood 158 times while self-mutilating and then blamed her for it. "I wanted to show her the pain she put me through," Manson said. "It was like, 'I want you to physically see what you've done.'"

That lines up with Wood's account of an abusive man who refused to let her leave. And even if it didn't, Manson was telling on himself: Self-harming and then blaming someone else is a classically manipulative behavior.



But Manson didn't stop there. He told the Spin magazine writer in an interview that one imagines he hoped Wood would read that he fantasized about murdering her. "The song 'I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies' is about my fantasies," Manson said. "I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer."

4. i still can't believe that Interscope promoted him over Raymond Watts.

If you read about Marilyn Manson's origins, it was basically the classic Letterman - Leno feud. Both were signed to Trent Reznor's Nothing Records label and they merged with Interscope in the mid 90s. Reznor I think saw what a huge POS Manson was and fought with the executives to get Watts and his band Pig promoted instead. They ultimately lost that fight and the label promoted Manson instead, and that was around the time Mechanical Animals blew up and became a huge hit for the label.

It's pretty interesting. And it's easy to see how Reznor feuded with Manson.
