The Westworld actress on Feb. 2 shared a letter that Rubio sent to Monty Wilkinson, the acting U.S. Attorney General, and Director Christopher Wray of the FBI on Jan. 21, asking for action to be taken, noting that several victims in her state had made “multiple allegations” against the musician and actor.
“The alleged victims have named Marilyn Manson, also known as Brian Hugh Warner, as the perpetrator. I ask that the U.S. Department of Justice meet with the alleged victims immediately and investigate these accusations,” she began her letter.
Rubio notes in her letter — which her office also shared with Vanity Fair — that she herself is a survivor of domestic violence and advocates for victims in the state she represents. “Since some of the alleged cases against Mr Warner are from California, I am especially alarmed.
Individuals who engage in this kind of abuse are often serial offenders,” she continues. “If these allegations are true, and no investigation is undertaken, we will be failing the victims and allowing a possible perpetrator to continue abusing unsuspecting victims. That must not be allowed to happen.”
The senator again called for Manson to be investigated after Wood shared her allegations on Instagram. Rubio said in a statement on Twitter: “These allegations of physical, emotional, and financial abuse against Marilyn Manson … must be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated.”
The floodgates have seemingly opened and more women have come forward with allegations of abuse [see here] directed at shock rocker Marilyn Manson.
After actress Evan Rachel Wood named Manson as her abuser yesterday (Feb 1st.), and followed by four other women’s admissions of abuse, new info has come to light about Manson’s abuse.
Former fiancé to Manson, actress Rose McGowen, one of the leading advocates for the #MeToo movement has released a new statement showing support to Evan Rachel Wood, who publicly accused Manson, her ex-boyfriend, of abusing her.
On Instagram, McGowen wrote “I am profoundly sorry to those who have suffered the abuse & mental torture of Marilyn Manson.
“When I say Hollywood is a cult, I mean the Entertainment industry including the music industry is a cult. Cults protect the rot at the top. Theirs is a sickness that must be stopped. The industrial fame complex chooses who they protect & who they’ll let be their victims. For-profit.
“I stand with Evan Rachel Wood and all of those who have or will come forward. And please don’t pull out the ‘why did they take so much time to come forward?’ question that shames victims/survivors, it’s what stops others from coming forward. And to all of those who have covered for monsters, shame on you. Rise and say no more.
Another claim of abuse has been brought to light in the last 24 hours with visual filmmaker Love Bailey’s encounter with Manson.
Bailey recounts visiting Manson’s home for a photo shoot with him and actress Paz de la Huerta in 2011, where she said it seemed like de la Huerta was drugged up and eventually Manson pulled a gun on her.
Arriving at his home, Bailey was told Warner and de la Huerta were “finishing up” in a separate room. When she was allowed to go inside to dress the actress, she claimed that de la Huerta was in a disoriented state and stumbling around the room, leading Bailey to believe she had been drugged. “I had to crawl over stained sheets to get to her and as I did so he put a big Glock to my forehead,” Love Bailey said.
“I remember thinking, oh my god, am I going to die? I felt powerless, I felt stunned and I was shocked. I was in this state where I was asking myself, isn’t he too famous to kill me? I remember all these thoughts flashing through my head, and here I was, this young 20-year-old stylist just trying to get the job done and I was met with a Glock.”
As Manson pulled the trigger, he let out a laugh and said, “I don’t like f—ts,” Love Bailey said. She believes it was a way for Warner to “scare me into submission, so I wouldn’t talk,” explained Bailey.
Love Bailey immediately left after the incident. It is believed that Bailey has reported the incident to California state senator Susan Rubio.
Manson has since been dropped by his record label, booking agent, and has been scrubbed from upcoming appearances on the Shudder series ‘Creepshow‘ and the STARZ series ‘American Gods‘.
