The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has started investigating abuse allegations made by Evan Rachel Wood against her former boyfriend Marilyn Manson.
Years after she testified before a House Committee in support of the Sexual Assault Survivors Bill of Rights, Wood revealed earlier this month that her ex-fiancé Marilyn Manson “horrifically” abused her for years.
The actress, model and musician is at least the fifth woman to come forward with allegations of abuse against Manson, whose original name is Brian Warner.
“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander or blackmail,” Wood wrote on Instagram.
The L.A. Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that its Special Victims Bureau is investigating “allegation(s) of domestic violence involving Mr. Brian Warner, also known as ‘Marilyn Manson,’ who works in the music industry.”
“The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood,” the statement added.
Manson has denied the allegations, but his record label dropped the rock musician after Wood named him.
