Ashley Morgan Smithline, a model, has joined the list of 15 women, including “Game of Thrones” actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esmé Bianco, who has accused Marilyn Manson of sexual, psychological and physical abuse. In fact, Smithline has accused Manson of being an abuser a couple of times this year – the first was in Feb. via an Instagram post.
This time, the model revealed all the abuse she was subjected to and how she thought about taking her own life. During the two years that she had a relationship, Smithline assures that not only was she sexually assaulted on countless occasions, but that Manson committed other terrible acts against her. In one report, she details that he bit her, whipped her on the back, cut her with a knife with a swastika, and put his fist in her mouth when they had sex. Regarding the sexual abuse, she explained that the first time she woke up in the morning screaming and realized that her arms were tied.
Smithline even stated the rocker raped her.
“I didn’t know you could rape someone that you were in a relationship with,” she said in a video that accompanied the article. “There’s a difference between waking up to someone having sex with you nicely in the morning and waking up tied up with someone having sex with your unconscious body, being tied up and screaming and not enjoying it, and him laughing, like, sadistically, or gagging my mouth or something.”
Furthermore, he revealed that he has a scar to this day on his thigh, where he engraved his initials. I was brainwashed and it makes me feel disgusting, she added. At another point, Ashley Morgan Smithline added that Marilyn Manson forced her to perform a blood pact, cutting her stomach, forcing her to drink his blood, and then he did the same. She also said that having Jewish ancestry, when they met he asked her to look for objects of Nazi interest, such as throwing stars, knives and whips to take them to Los Angeles.
“If I had known that the weapons would be used against me, I think it would have felt very strange.” She also claimed that during one of the rape attempts before she took a 17-hour flight to Japan to work as a model, Manson broke her nose and once threw a knife at her, which nearly cut her face.
On multiple occasions, Manson has denied the claims. In addition, his spokesman told Rolling Stone Manson’s relationship with Smithline was short-lived.
“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, didn’t last one week.”
