The Reason Why Marilyn Manson And His Wife Lindsay Usich Quit Instagram And Social Media
The iconic musician Marilyn Manson and his wife Lindsay Usich have been staying silent on their social media accounts, especially on their official Instagram page since the shocking allegations that implied Manson was a sexual abuser throughout his relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood blasted.
As you might remember, Marilyn Manson and the famous actress Evan Rachel Wood had three years of relationship together starting in 2017. While the couple got engaged in 2010 for a brief time period, they broke up a couple of months after their engagement.
At the beginning of 2020, actress Evan Rachel Wood has spoken about the alleged mental, physical, and sexual abuse she was subjected to by an ex-boyfriend. Despite revealing any names for quite some time, Wood shared a post on her official Instagram page revealing the name of her abuser who is apparently, Brian Warner also known as, Marilyn Manson.
In the revealing statement, the young actress stressed the fact that she was only a teenager when the two started dating which was true since Evan Rachel Wood was only 18 years old while Manson was 36. According to Wood’s statement, Manson ‘horrifically’ abused her for years both physically and mentally in addition to blackmailing her for years should she reveal the name of her abuser.
Here is what Wood said:
“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
Following the allegations, Marilyn Manson received major criticism since he was faced with being labeled as a sexual abuser to a young woman, furthermore, his record label, Loma Vista, also released a statement after the incident to announce that they are not going to be working with Marilyn from now on for the recording of his new album or in any of his future projects.
In order to defend himself after everything was said by countless people, Marilyn Manson shared a post on his official Instagram page stressing that his career had lived endless controversial moments, however, the recent allegations have been nothing but a ‘distortion of reality’ since his relationships involved consent.
Here is what Manson said:
“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets of controversy, but these recent claims about me are a horrible distortion of reality. My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
While this statement didn’t seem to satisfy anybody since it’s been nearly three since the unexpected news broke the internet, both fans and media have been waiting for Marilyn Manson to release another statement in order to clear everybody’s minds. Instead, Manson and his wife Lindsay Usich have been staying silent on their social media accounts, revealing nothing for months in order to stay away from the allegations.
