New Sexual Assault Lawsuit Filed Against MARILYN MANSON By His Ex-Assistant

Yet another lawsuit claiming sexual abuse launched against the shock rocker.

MARILYN MANSON’s former assistant has filed a lawsuit against the shock rocker for sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, interference with the exercise of civil rights in violation of the Bane Act, sexual battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

In a 16-page lawsuit, which you can view here (via Deadline), situations involving ex-assistant Ashley Walters and MARILYN MANSON were described in lurid detail, painting a picture of both physical and verbal abuse by the musician.

Walters began working for MANSON in 2010 when he contacted her to comment on her photography and inquire about the possibly of working together. Upon Walters initial arrival at his home, she says that she was not aware that the parking lot, where she pulled in, was apparently locked from 2AM through 7AM.

During the first encounter within the home, MANSON apparently initiated a photo shoot with Walters as the subject. He requested for her to remove her shirt, which she agreed to, despite “the way in which Defendant [MANSON] insisted caused her to pause.”

The lawsuit notes she kept her bra on during this event and afterward, with the shock rocker eventually shoving her onto his bed, pinning her arms down and trying to kiss her despite her pleads to the contrary.

The lawsuit claims that he then bit her ear and placed her hand inside his underwear.

It’s alleged that MANSON then sent messages to Walters, praising her while expressing interest in working together again while maintaining “professional and appropriate” communication.

During another incident, the lawsuit claims that MANSON had requested Walters to star in a video shoot. “During the shoot, Defendant told Walters he ‘loved when girls looked like they had just been raped’ and told her to wear a Nazi jacket, slick her hair with water, put on heavy black eyeliner, and wear slightly smeared red lipstick,” the papers read.

Another actor was involved in the video shoot and Walters claims she was told to keep only her underwear and the Nazi jacket on before getting into a bed with the actor for the video.

Walters said she then became aware the actor had unzipped his pants and “was touching his penis under the comforter,” to which MANSON allegedly advised she “help” the actor, leading her to determine that the situation was either pre-meditated or that MANSON was aware of the actor’s actions under the sheets as the shoot was happening.

It is further alleged that the musician would consistently offer Walters to other friends for sexual contact.

The lawsuit also claims that, “Brian Warner [MARILYN MANSON’s birth name] also boasted that he had gotten away with raping women.”

After singling out two specific incidents from around September and October of 2010, the lawsuit states, “During this period, Defendant first showed plaintiff a video he made depicting a young female fan, which showed Defendant stripping her down and whipping her until she screamed and cried. He also pulled a gun on the girl in the video. Defendant repeatedly played the video for Plaintiff at maximum volume.”

The lawsuit also adds, the “Plaintiff later learned that the girl in the video was an alleged minor at the time the video was made.”

Actresses Esmé Bianco and Evan Rachel Wood, both of whom have accused Manson of sexual abuse are also noted in the lawsuit where it claims Walters personally witnessed instances of their mistreatment.

It later states, “On one occasion in December 2010, Walters witnessed the Defendant throw a prop skull so hard at Wood that it left a large raised welt on her stomach.” Walters also said she snuck food and drinks into the guest bathroom for both Bianco and Wood, as they were each afraid to leave the room they had occupied.

During her second stint as Manson’s personal assistant, it is alleged, “On several occasions, he forced the Plaintiff to stay up for 48 hours straight. She was required to stand for 12 hours straight on a chair without moving while taking pictures of him. Defendant fed her cocaine to force her to stay awake.”

Walters stopped working MANSON in 2011.
