Marilyn Manson Sued by Fourth Woman for Sexual Assault
The ‘Rock Is Dead’ singer is facing a new lawsuit as model Ashley Morgan Smithline accuses him of sexually abusing and calling her anti-Semitic names during their relationship.
AceShowbiz -A fourth woman has filed suit against rocker Marilyn Manson amid allegations of sexual assault.
Model Ashley Morgan Smithline is taking the “Rock Is Dead” singer, real name Brian Warner, to court, claiming assault, sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, human trafficking, and unlawful imprisonment, among other allegations.
Her suit joins those of “Game of Thrones” actress Esme Bianco, Warner’s former personal assistant Ashley Walters, and an unidentified woman, while more than a dozen other females have alleged misconduct against the rock star.
In her new lawsuit, Smithline claims Warner became infatuated with her while trying to recruit her for a film project in 2010. He allegedly flew her to Los Angeles from Thailand for a bogus remake of “True Romance” he was planning and asked her to move in with him.
“Mr. Warner knew these offers to be fraudulent,” the suit reads. “No effort was made to complete production of the film project and to date nothing from that project has been published. Mr. Warner merely used the film project as a pretense to lure Ms. Smithline to the United States.”
Smithline claims she entered into a consensual sexual relationship with Manson, but things became dark after she allegedly woke one day to find her wrists and ankles bound and Warner penetrating her. When she told him to stop, she says he told her to “shut the f**k up.” He allegedly left her with bruised ribs and a vagina injury.
“He kept telling me, ‘You can’t rape someone that you’re in love with,’ ” she previously told People.com.
Another assault followed, according to the model, and he cut her shoulder and arm with a knife, and carved his initials into her thigh. The accuser also claims Manson bit her.
“The abuse escalated into Mr. Warner shaking Ms. Smithline and strangling her by putting his hand in her mouth,” the lawsuit continues. “On yet another occasion, Mr. Warner threw a Nazi knife at Ms. Smithline, only barely missing her face. Mr. Warner also burned Ms. Smithline.”
She eventually broke the cycle of alleged abuse in 2013 and left Manson, whose representatives vehemently deny her allegations.
“We strongly deny Ms. Smithline’s claims,” a spokesperson tells Rolling Stone. “There are so many falsehoods within her claims that we wouldn’t know where to begin to answer them. This relationship, to the limited extent it was a relationship, lasted less than a week in 2010. Manson hasn’t seen Ms. Smithline since then.”
Smithline, who is Jewish, also alleges Warner asked her to bring him Nazi paraphernalia from her travels and called her anti-Semitic names.
“Mr. Warner interfered with Ms. Smithline’s civil rights regarding her religion and her right to be free from sexual discrimination and harassment,” the suit adds.
Previous claims of sexual abuse against Manson are currently under investigation in Los Angeles.
The rocker has lost his record label deal, management, and two TV projects as a result of the drama.
