The woman named Evan Rachel Wood is mostly known for her movie role in the film, “Thirteen.” Evan Rachel Wood is now in the media because she accuses her ex-boyfriend, Marilyn Manson, of “horrifically abusing me for years.” Marilyn Manson’s real name is, “Brian Warner.”
This is more of what she had to say: “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.”
She continues to say, “It is time for me to tell the truth. It’s time for me to finally tell my side. I can not have it told for me anymore. People are going to believe whatever they are going to believe. It is not my job to convince people that I am not lying. It is my job to tell the truth. And that is what I have done.”
Last Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival, Evan Rachel Wood debuted a documentary film about Marilyn Manson’s grooming of her. The documentary film is named, “Phoenix Rising.” Evan Rachel Wood describes explicit examples of Marilyn Manson’s actions in the film. She explains more about Marilyn Manson’s grooming, love-bombing, and also his attempts to force her to isolate from her family. She also says that a sexual assault happened in one of Marilyn Manson’s music videos. The music video is named, “Heart-Shaped Glasses.” Evan Rachel Wood says that she was raped on camera in the music video.
She said, “I was coerced into a commercial sex act under false pretenses. That is when the first crime was committed against me. And I was essentially raped on camera.”
She also said that, “I experienced threats against my life, severe gaslighting and brainwashing, and I woke up to the man that claimed to love me raping what he believed to be my unconscious body.”
Evan Rachel Wood also accuses Marilyn Manson of grooming her for sex ever since she was a young girl. “Grooming” is a word that describes when a child or young person is taught at a young age to be a sexual being by an older person. This older person teaches him or her to be a sexual being so that the older person can sexually assault him or her. It may also mean that this older person also sexually assaults the young person while he also teaches her sexual acts.
Evan Rachel Wood met Marilyn Manson at a party when she was young. Marilyn Manson tricked the young woman and said that he wanted her to be in a film. After that time the two began to spend time together. After sometime they kissed and had sexual intercourse. When she and Marilyn Manson kissed she said that “it was like being kissed by a god” because of the singer’s bigger-than-life personality.
It is horrifying to hear about the things that were done to Evan Rachel Wood when she was a young girl. I hope she is able to find solace and peace.
