Game Of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco has blamed Marilyn Manson for allegedly abusing her when the two were dating.
Bianco is one of several women who have come forward to publicly name Manson as their abuser in recent weeks, led by actress Evan Rachel Wood’s outing of the shock rocker.
Here’s what Bianco said:
“He’s told the world time and time again, ‘This is who I am.’ He hid in plain sight,”
Bianco revealed that the two had met in 2005 through Manson’s then-fiancée Dita Von Teese, who knew Manson wanted to meet the actress. The two remained in contact, and, after Manson’s marriage to Von Teese ended in 2007, the communication turned flirtatious.
In 2009, Manson wanted her to be part of the music videos.
He sent an email to her, stating:
“I need to have a victim/lover” for the shoot and, “You are gonna have to pretend to like being manhandled by me. Sorry.”
At the time of the shoot, Bianco was 26 and, per the report, “spent the next three days in lingerie, barely sleeping or eating, with Manson serving up cocaine rather than food.”
Manson also displayed acts of violence when enraged, it says, such as throwing a camera at a smoke alarm, which later turned to physical violence toward the actress — she was tied to a prayer kneeler with cables, lashed with a whip and a Violet Wand electric sex toy was used on the wounds.
