Actress Esme Bianco Claims Relationship With Marilyn Manson ‘Almost Destroyed’ Her
Game of Thrones actress Esme Bianco has spoken out about her past relationship with Marilyn Manson claiming that the musician sexually and physically abused her.
In an interview with New York Magazine‘s The Cut, the actress revealed that her relationship with Manson went from being a “massive role model who really helped me through some incredibly dark and difficult times as a teenager” to a “monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women.”
Bianco started her relationship with Manson in 2009. During their time together, she alleged that Manson assaulted her without consent during a music video shoot, chased her around their apartment with an ax and set strict sex rules for her.
“I basically felt like a prisoner,” she revealed. “I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet.”
In the past, Bianco had spoken out about being a survivor of domestic abuse but did not name her abuser until now.
Hours after the allegations, Manson was dropped by his record label, Loma Vista Recordings for the allegations against him.
