No music video for “I want to kill you like they do in movies” has ever been officially released.
According to the lawsuit, Esmé Bianco and Marilyn Manson “started a sexual relationship” in May 2009. While the lawsuit describes the relationship as “consensual,” it also states that Manson “publicly groped.” [Bianco] against their consent ”and“ verbally humiliated them during the interviews ”.
In April 2011, Manson is said to have “convinced” the Englishwoman Bianco to move to Los Angeles to star in the as yet unreleased film Phantasmagoria and to help her get a visa. The lawsuit states: “Ms. Bianco spent two and a half months with Mr. Warner and was constantly ill-treated. Mr. Warner controlled Ms. Bianco’s movements and threatened to disrupt her visa process. Mr. Warner took turns keeping Ms. Bianco awake for days and then locking her out of the apartment overnight. She was not allowed to leave the apartment without permission or receive any visitors. “
Bianco also claims that Manson once “hunted” [her] Through the apartment with an ax, punching holes in the walls. “Another time, according to the suit,” cut Manson [her] with a Nazi knife during sex, without her consent, and photographed the cuts on her body. Then he put the photos online without her consent. “
Bianco claims she “fled[d]The Los Angeles apartment in June 2011 while Manson was sleeping. Two years later, Bianco said she attended a Marilyn Manson concert in Las Vegas where Manson “violently kissed her without her consent and tried to prevent her from leaving”. She says she was able to walk with the help of her friends.
According to the lawsuit, Bianco’s career “has suffered from the deterioration in her mental health caused by [Marilyn Manson], ”And that it deals with post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and panic attacks.
In addition to allegations of sexual assault and sexual assault, Bianco claims Manson violated the Re-Authorization of Protection of Victims of Human Trafficking Act because Manson “used both fraudulent offers of film and music video roles to persuade [her] to travel to Los Angeles, whereupon [he] then he threatened violence and engaged in violent sexual acts [her] which she did not agree to. “
Bianco names Tony Ciulla and Ciulla Management in her lawsuit because, as she claims, they “knew about it [Marilyn Manson’s] Behaved and benefited financially from the fact that this abuse was able to continue. “
When contacted by Pitchfork, Howard E. King, Marilyn Manson’s attorney said:
These claims are proven to be false. To be clear, this lawsuit was only brought after my client refused to be shaken off by Ms. Bianco and her lawyer and to give in to their outrageous financial demands based on conduct that just never happened. We will vigorously challenge these allegations in court and are confident that we will prevail.
Upon reaching through Pitchfork, representatives made the following statement from Esmé Bianco:
As millions of survivors like me painfully know, our legal system is far from perfect. Because of this, I helped shape the Phoenix Act, a law that gives thousands of domestic violence survivors valuable additional healing time. But while I am fighting for a more just legal system, I am also pursuing my right to demand that my perpetrator be held accountable by using all possible means at my disposal.
For far too long my perpetrator has been left unchecked, made possible by money, fame and an industry that has turned a blind eye. 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. I hope that through my upbringing I can help ensure that Brian Warner no longer destroys lives and that other victims are enabled to seek their own small measure of justice.
In addition, Bianco’s attorney Jay Ellwanger stated:
I am inspired by Ms. Bianco’s courage and dedication to holding Brian Warner accountable. While we understand that the criminal investigation is still ongoing, it is important that we use all possible avenues to hold him accountable for the horrific acts he committed.
Ciulla Management representatives stated:
This attempt to involve Ciulla Management in this action is not only legally unfounded, but also offensive and absurd. We look forward to officially contesting these utterly frivolous allegations.
