On Monday, February 1, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood came forward to accuse her former fiancé Marilyn Manson of abusing her for years. After her allegations, at least four more women also accused the international singer of abuse. Manson has broken his silence about the claims against him. The 52-year-old singer took to Instagram and issued a statement where he deemed the claims are "horrible distortions of reality." He added that his intimate relationships have always been "consensual with like-minded partners." 

"Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions 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," Manson wrote in the post on Instagram. 

The singer switched off the comments option on the post. Check out Manson's statement below: 

Following the accusations, Variety reported Manson's recording label dropped him. Confirming their split from the artist in a statement, Loma Vista Recordings said, “In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately." They added that they will not work with Manson in the future. 

Wood had first opened up about an abusive relationship about five years ago. However, it wasn't until yesterday that she named her abuser. Check out her post here: Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood accuses former fiancé Marilyn Manson of 'horrifically' abusing her for years
