Marilyn Manson comments on new lawsuit and shares full case online

Marilyn Manson has commented on the lawsuit he filed against actress Evan Rachel Wood and artist Illma Gore. He posted a short statement on his Instagram, uploaded a full copy of the lawsuit to Google Drive, and pasted the link into his account bio.

In February 2021, Wood ousted Manson as an abuser, and several other women he had been romantically involved with in the past came forward with stories of abuse afterward. The entertainer, as a result, was fired from his record label and agent, he was stripped of some television roles and the LAPD performed a wellness check on him at his home after receiving a call to him. asking to do so.

The musician, real name Brian Warner, filed a complaint yesterday (March 2). It lists several complaints: intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation per se, violation of the Comprehensive Computer Data and Access Fraud Act, and Internet identity theft. His case ultimately argues that Wood and Gore created a conspiracy, using fraud, in order to defame him and profit from it.

“This action arises out of wrongful and unlawful acts committed as part of a conspiracy by Defendant Evan Rachel Wood and his recurring romantic partner, Defendant Ashley Gore, [also known as] Illma Gore, to publicly launch plaintiff Brian Warner, [publicly known as] Marilyn Manson, as a rapist and assailant – a malicious lie that derailed Warner’s successful music, TV and film career,” the trial begins.

The document went on to cite Wood and Manson’s relationship, which spanned from 2006 to 2010, during which Wood described their relationship as “healthy” and “loving.” “This is who I am and this is what I always wanted to be, and I’m finally with someone who lets me be who I want to be,” the actress reportedly said.

The case claims that Wood and Gore “covertly recruited, coordinated, and pressured potential accusers” into coming forward with their own abuse allegations against Manson. In the process, the lawsuit alleges the couple impersonated an FBI agent by falsifying a letter warning the alleged victims and their families that they could be in danger as a result of the investigation, lists created. control and scripts for Manson’s former romantic partners so that they could create a solid argument and make false claims that the musician filmed a video of a minor being sexually assaulted.

Additionally, Manson claims that Gore hacked into Manson’s personal computers, phones, emails, and social media accounts after obtaining passwords from his former employees and impersonating him in fake email exchanges. emails, which involved pornography. Finally, he alleges that Gore acted as a concerned friend and suggested the LAPD perform a checkup on him, and that the couple notified the paparazzi so they could capture the event on camera.
