An actress sued singer Marilyn Manson on Friday for an alleged pattern of sexual abuse. Plaintiff Esme Bianco, that had a recurring role as Ros in the first phases of Game of Thrones, was among the girls who formerly stepped forward with claims against the provocateur musician. She moved one step farther with her story by filing at a California court.
In her complaint, she described Manson (real name Brian Hugh Warner) participating at a years-long campaign of abuse and control , which escalated if he persuaded her to fly into Los Angeles for a video movie. However there was no team, he made her stay in his house, forced her to become on-call 24/7, plied her with all drugs and alcohol, threatened her, and then beat her.
“He forced Ms. Bianco to observe an extremely violent film that compelled her to faint,” the suit stated. “He attempted to force her to perform sexual acts on camera with another woman who
was present during the shoot. Maybe most horrifyingly,” Mr. Warner locked Ms. Bianco from the sack, tied her to a prayer kneeler, and beat her with a whip that Mr. Warner said was used by the Nazis. He also electrocuted her.”
According to the complaint, issues lasted through May 2009, once they began a sexual relationship throughout his trip to London. He persuaded her in April 2011 to proceed to Los Angeles to live together with him. Again, he was described as being controlling, and also threatening to hinder her visa process. The defendant allegedly maintained the apartment at”near-total darkness,” wanted the warmth to always remain at 63 level off, was verbally abusive to Bianco, drove objects, also berated her for items, including expressing concern about him acting violent and sensual films throughout the flat.
“On another occasion, Mr. Warner cut Ms. Bianco using a Nazi knife through intercourse, without her permission, and photographed the cuts on her body. He then posted the pictures on the web without her permission.”
The plaintiff asserts she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks because of what happened.
Talent manager Tony Ciulla, that reportedly dropped Manson as a customer amid sexual abuse asserts that emerged this year, is a co-defendant from the complaint. The plaintiff claimed he knew about the abuse, allow it to continue.
“All these claims are provably untrue,” Manson attorney Howard E. King said in a statement obtained by Deadline. “To be clear, this lawsuit was just filed after my customer refused to be shaken down by Ms. Bianco and her attorney and give in to their own outrageous financial demands based on behavior that just never happened. We will vigorously contest these allegations in court and are convinced that we’ll prevail.”
