Marilyn Manson’s Attorney Files To Dismiss Esmé Bianco’s Lawsuit

Marilyn Manson’s ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood made vile accusations against him back in February, which changed many fan’s opinions of him. Since then, he has been dropped by his manager, disowned by his record label, and lost multiple television roles. In addition to Wood, several other women would come forward and spoke out against the rock star.

Among them was Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco who’d dated Manson between 2009 and 2011, and in April, she filed a civil lawsuit in California against Manson. She would claim that during their time together, he sexually assaulted her, withhold sleep and food, and forced her to take drugs and alcohol.

Manson’s attorney, though, officially requested this past Wednesday to have the case dismissed, citing the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1. This related to the statute of limitations, which, while they are currently limited to ten years, when the crime is said to have happened, the statute was just two years. This means Bianco needed to file by 2013.

It should be noted that Manson has previously denied the initial allegations made against him in an Instagram post. He wrote, “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality. My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. “

This is just one of the multiple legal issues Manson is dealing with at present, and on July 2nd, he turned himself in to Los Angeles police. A videographer claims he spat at them during a concert in 2019, which qualifies as assault. He was subsequently released on bail and pledged not to communicate with the victim, and agreed to appear at a future court hearing.
