Marilyn Manson “forced female fans to strip” after inviting them on his tour bus
A photographer has alleged that Marilyn Manson “forced female fans to strip” as a part of a warped sex game.
Erica Von Stein alleges that Manson – real name is Brian Hugh Warner – also plied fans with alcohol before ordering them to require off their tops.
Speaking to The Mirror, Von Stein said she was picked from a crowd of fans by Manson’s minders and escorted to his tour bus.
She then allegedly hid at the rear of the group because the musician pointed at the group of girls and instructed them to strip.
She claims: “He said he wanted to ascertain who had the simplest t*ts and ass. Everyone was a touch surprised. He made it feel normalised, love it was fun.
“He was surrounded by older people and he was domineering. I don’t think anyone felt they might say no.”
The incident is imagined to have occurred after a performance by the shock-rocker at Glasgow’s SECC.
The newspaper also spoke to 2 other women who were on the bus, with one commenting: “The girls were coerced into it while tipsy. it had been an abuse of power.”
Manson is yet to discuss the newest claims, but it comes every week after actor Evan Rachel Wood and 4 other women made allegations of abuse, grooming and manipulation against the musician.
Manson denied the initial claims, writing in an Instagram post: “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. no matter how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that’s the reality .”
The musician has been dropped by his record label, Loma Vista, and his longterm manager Tony Ciulla since Wood and therefore the other women’s first allegations were made public. He has also been axed from his TV projects, together with his appearances faraway from American Gods and therefore the Creepshow anthology.
Former collaborators have also denounced Manson, including Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland. The latter also previously played guitar in Manson’s band for one year.
