Actress Esmé Bianco has filed a lawsuit against Marilyn Manson alleging she was the victim of sexual abuse by the goth rock singer.
The actress, who is known for playing Ros on HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” said she was physically, sexually, psychologically and emotionally abused during their relationship over the years.
The lawsuit, filed in a California federal court last week, claims that Manson “used drugs, force, and threats of force to coerce sexual acts from Ms. Bianco on multiple occasions.”
Bianco accuses Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, of raping her “in or around May 2011.”
She is the latest in a series of women who have accused the 52 year-old singer-songwriter of abuse during their relationships. They include “Westworld” actress Evan Rachel Wood.
“Despite the numerous brave women who have spoken out against Marilyn Manson, countless survivors remain silenced, and some of their voices will never be heard. My hope is that by raising mine I will help to stop Brian Warner from shattering any more lives and empower other victims to seek their own small measure of justice,” Bianco said in a statement.
Manson’s attorney dismissed these claims as “provably false.”
