Marilyn Manson dropped by record label after allegations he abused Evan Rachel Wood and others
Loma Vista Recordings, which released the most recent album by Marilyn Manson, has cut all ties with the musician in the wake of allegations Monday from Evan Rachel Wood and four other women saying he abused them.
"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 company said in a statement posted to Twitter. "Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects."
Wood has previously spoken openly about being sexually assaulted by an ex she met as a teenager, but did not name Manson (whose real name is Brian Warner) as the partner she had been referring to until this week.
Manson issued a denial Monday evening on Instagram. "Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality," he wrote. "My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misinterpret the past, that is the truth."
