Five years after opening about being in an abusive relationship, Hollywood actress Evan Rachel Wood has revealed the name of her abuser. The Westworld star came forward to talk about the abuse she faced from musician Marilyn Manson. She took to Instagram and shared a post naming the international musician. "He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years," the 33-year-old star said. For the unversed, the duo began dating when she was a teenager but kept it under the relationship under the wraps until she was 19. 

"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," she continued.

Vanity Fair reported that in a show of solidarity, four more women have alleged Manson of assault and abuse. They have shared details of their harrowing experiences. The claims included sexual assault, psychological abuse, and/or various forms of coercion, violence, and intimidation. 

Wood first opened up about an abusive relationship in an interview to Rolling Stone, back in 2016. Three years later, in 2019, the actress helped forge California’s Phoenix Act. The bill extended the statute of limitations for domestic violence cases from three to five years. 

Wood's accusations come months after Manson brought an interview with Metal Hammer magazine after the writer mentioned Wood’s name. Manson then issued a lengthy statement, denying wrongdoings. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
