Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco sues Marilyn Manson for allegations of rape
In the civil suit filed in a California court on Friday, Bianco (38) accuses the singer of assault, rape, and other sexual abuse, according to Variety. She described Manson's use of drugs, force, and threats to coerce her into sexual acts.
She accused him of spanking, biting, cutting, and whipping her without her consent during sexual incidents from 2009 to 2011.
In an interview with New York Magazine in February, Bianco described physical scars left from Manon's abuse, which included him chasing her with an ax.
In February, actor Evan Rachel Wood and dozens of other women, including models Sarah McNeilly and Ashley Lindsay Morgan, have come forward to make public accusations against Manson (52) for "horrific" abuse.
The singer has since been dropped from his record label and is being investigated by Los Angeles police for allegations of domestic violence.
Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, promptly denied the allegations and said his sexual relationships have always been "entirely consensual."
He claimed on Instagram in February that his "art and life have long been magnets for controversy," but that the allegations about him were "horrible distortions of reality."
Manson has not yet commented on Bianco's lawsuit.
