Monday morning. “He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically
abused me for years.

promote his music in the wake of Rachel Wood’s abuse allegations.
“In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel
Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will
cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately,” the statement
reads. “Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work
with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.”
Not only this, Mason is also dropped from a TV series Creepshow which was scheduled to air on
AMC Networks. California State Senator Susan Rubio also wrote a letter to
Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson, requesting him to launch an
investigation against Mason in light of the allegations.
After being kicked out from
his record-label, Loma Vista and from his TV series, Manson responded to the
accusations on his Instagram account, categorically denying all allegations
without mentioning any of his alleged victims in specific, “Obviously, my art
and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims

Toxic mental, physical and sexual abuse which started slow but escalated over
time, including threats against my life.” However, she did not reveal the name
of her abuser.
Mason is an abusive, manipulative person who intimidated
Wood for several years. In 2009, Mason said in one interview, “I have fantasies
every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer.” Later, his

she stands with Rachel.
