AceShowbiz - Marilyn Manson faces more legal troubles. An ex-girlfriend has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the rocker in Los Angeles County state Superior Court as she claimed that he raped her and forced her to watch a gruesome film depicting abuse of a groupie.
Identified as Jane Doe, the woman revealed that she started dating Marilyn, whose real name is Brian Warner, in 2011. She also said that the musician made her watch a video that he kept locked in a safe.
The said video featured abuse of a groupie which took place after a 1996 appearance by the band at the Hollywood Bowl. According to Jane Doe, a young fan was seen being forced to drink urine, threatened with a gun. She also claimed that the fan might have been pistol-whipped. A source, meanwhile, told TMZ that the video is actually a scripted short film intended for a project, though it was shelved.
Nevertheless, the woman was afraid for her life after watching the clip. She decided to return a key to Manson's home. However, he then forcibly raped her in addition to threatening to kill her.
The lawsuit arrives after it was said that the star was a wanted man in New Hampshire. An arrest warrant was issued for the rocker in the New England region for an alleged assault related to an incident that happened in 2019 at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion involving a videographer.
"The Gilford Police Department has an active arrest warrant for Brian Hugh Warner (aka: Marilyn Manson) for two counts of Class A misdemeanor Simple Assault stemming from a 2019 incident at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion," a statement from The Gilford Police Department said on Tuesday, May 25 via Facebook. "The alleged assaults involved a videographer. Mr. Warner, his agent and legal counsel have been aware of the warrant for some time and no effort has been made by him to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges."
