“Game of Thrones” actress Esmé Bianco is the latest woman who has accused Marilyn Manson of physical and psychological abuse.
Bianco joins Evan Rachel Wood and five other women who have accused Manson, aka Brian Warner, of abuse.
Bianco detailed to The Cut the abuse she received from Manson during the few months she lived with the rocker. She accused Manson of inflicting wounds like cuts and bruises that left permanent scars on her body.
“I just remember laying there, and I didn’t fight it,” Bianco said.
“It was kind of this final-straw moment where I had lost all sense of hope and safety.”
Bianco, a fan of Manson’s music growing up, met him in 2005 through his then-fiancée, Dita Von Teese. However, they started their relationship after his marriage ended in 2007.
In 2009, when she was 26 years old, the singer first became violent with her while shooting a music video for the song “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies.”
Though Manson initially said the role would require Bianco to “pretend to like being manhandled by me,” during production Bianco says he whipped her, tied her up with cables and used a vibrating sex toy on injuries.
After the shoot, Bianco and Manson began an affair, and she moved in with him in 2011.
During that time, she says he controlled her whole life and even cut her with a knife and later sent an image of the injuries to his then-assistant and a bandmate.
“I basically felt like a prisoner,” Bianco says. “I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet.”
