Marilyn Manson‘s former girlfriend Ashley Morgan Smithline opened up about the alleged physical and emotional abuse that she suffered from the goth rock singer.
“I survived a monster,” Smithline said in a harrowing interview with People.
She told the magazine that she thought the 52-year-old singer-songwriter was going to kill her during the abusive relationship.
Smithline, 36, made the shocking revelation that Manson forced her to engage in a blood pact.
“He cut me on my stomach and then drank my blood. Then, he had me drink his. The more I let him hurt me, the more I loved him and the more I was proving myself to him,” she said.
Smithline said the Grammy nominee lured her in with his “endless intelligence.”
Responding to the interview, actress Esmé Bianco pledged solidarity with Smithline on Instagram.
The “Game Of Thrones” actress filed a lawsuit last month alleging that she was physically, sexually, psychologically and emotionally abused during her relationship with Manson.
Smithline is the latest in a series of women who have accused Manson of abuse during their relationships. They include “Westworld” actress Evan Rachel Wood.
