Now, “The Beautiful People” musician has released a written statement of his own on Instagram, denying the allegations against him.

“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he said. “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners.”

He concluded: “Regardless of how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”

Evan Rachel Wood has claimed that she was “brainwashed and manipulated into submission” during her three-year relationship with the musician from 2007 to 2010.

Wood, who was engaged to Manson for eight months before their split, revealed she is “done living in fear,” which is why she is now sharing her story.

“I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives,” she continued. “I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”
