Authorities in Los Angeles are investigating multiple allegations of abuse against rock musician Marilyn Manson.

“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegation(s) of domestic violence involving Mr. Brian Warner also known as ‘Marilyn Manson,’ who works in the music industry,” the department said in a statement shared with The Hill. 

“The incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the city of West Hollywood,” the statement said.


The investigation comes after multiple women, including actress and singer Evan Rachel Wood, spoke out to accuse Manson of abuse.

Wood named Manson in a social media post earlier this month, more than two years after she appeared on Capitol Hill and described sexual and physical abuse she said she endured by an unidentified person.

“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson," Wood said in an Instagram post on Feb. 1. "He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission.”

Other women have also accused Manson of abuse.

Manson, 52, has denied the allegations against him.

“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he said in a post responding to Wood's allegations earlier this month.


"My intimate relationships have always been consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how— and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”

Manson was 38 and Wood was 19 when they were together, and were reportedly engaged at one point.

After the allegations, Manson was dropped from his record label, Loma Vista Records. The Hollywood Reporter noted that he was also dropped by his agency CAA.
