Asia's Tech News Daily

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department raided Marilyn Manson's home early Monday morningInvestigators reportedly seized hard drives and media storage units allegedly connected to the ongoing investigations into sex assault allegations against himMore than a dozen women, including his ex-fiancee Evan Rachel Wood, have accused the rocker of physical and sexual abuseSome victims alleged that Manson would lock them in a small, soundproof glass enclosure in the home that he referred to as the Bad Girls' Room The accusers claimed he used the space as a 'solitary confinement cell, used to psychologically torture women'Manson has denied the claims and his attorney has called them 'provably false' 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department raided Marilyn Manson’s home after more than a dozen women, including his ex-fiancee, made allegations of physical and sexual abuse against the rocker. 

Sheriff’s Deputy Eva Jimenez confirmed to Monday that a search warrant was served at the performer’s home. 

She said further details were expected to come Tuesday. 

The sheriff’s department said in February that its detectives had begun investigating Manson – whose legal name is Brian Hugh Warner – over reports of domestic violence between 2009 and 2011 in West Hollywood, where he lived at the time.

According to TMZ, the raid is connected to the assault allegations.

Special Victims Unit detectives reportedly went to the home early Monday morning and forced entry with a search warrant, the news outlet reported. Manson was not home at the time of the raid.

Authorities seized hard drives and media storage units, which will be reviewed before the assault case is submitted to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.  

The women involved in the case have not been identified, but several women have publicly alleged this year that they were physically, sexually and emotionally abused by Manson around the time of the incidents under investigation, and some have filed lawsuits.

Some of his accusers alleged that Manson would lock them in a small, soundproof glass enclosure in the home that he referred to as the Bad Girls’ Room.  

The victims claimed he used the space as a ‘solitary confinement cell, used to psychologically torture women’.

The 52-year-old shock rocker also made headlines in February when singer Phoebe Bridgers claimed she visited Manson’s home as a teenager, and he referred to one room in his house as, ‘the rape room.’ reported earlier this month that Manson had sold the Hollywood Hills home – that allegedly featured the ‘rape room’ – for $1,835,000.

Despite the controversy surround the house, it was sold for 5% above the asking price, after he listed it last month for $1,750,000. 

It’s unclear if the Hollywood Hills property was the home Bridgers visited, which Manson purchased in 2013, when she would have been 19 years of age.

Manson had listed the home on the same day that the rocker’s request to dismiss the sexual assault lawsuit filed by Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco, had been thrown out by a judge.

Manson’s former fiancee, Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood, named him as her abuser for the first time in an Instagram post in February.

He called Wood’s statements ‘horrible distortions of reality.’

In May, Bianco sued Manson in federal court, alleging sexual, physical and emotional abuse. 

She said that Manson violated human trafficking law by bringing her to California from England for non-existent roles in music videos and movies.

Manson deprived Bianco of food and sleep, locked her in a bedroom, whipped her, gave her electric shocks and threatened to enter her room and rape her during the night, the lawsuit alleges.

Bianco’s attorney said she also was interviewed by law enforcement.

The rocker’s former assistant also accused him of sexual assault, battery and harassment in her own lawsuit, saying he used ‘his position of power, celebrity and connections to exploit and victimize during her employment.’ 

Manson’s attorney Howard E. King declined immediate comment. Manson has denied the allegations, and King has called them ‘provably false’.

Manson emerged as a musical star in the mid-1990s, known as much for courting public controversy as for hit songs like The Beautiful People and hit albums like 1996’s Antichrist Superstar and 1998’s Mechanical Animals.

Last week the Recording Academy revealed that Manson had been nominated for Album of the Year alongside rapper DaBaby for their work on Kanye West’s album, Donda. 

Despite public backlash over the nomination, CEO Harvey Mason Jr. defended his organization’s controversial nomination for Manson saying the Recording Academy doesn’t ‘restrict’ who can submit their names for awards consideration.

According to Mason, the Grammy nominations are purely aimed at singling out the best recorded work of the year.

‘We won’t restrict the people who can submit their material for consideration,’ he explained. 

‘We won’t look back at people’s history, we won’t look at their criminal record, we won’t look at anything other than the legality within our rules of, is this recording for this work eligible based on date and other criteria. If it is, they can submit for consideration.’

However, the 53-year-old producer and executive stopped short of saying that controversial artists would be welcome at the Grammy ceremony.

‘What we will control is our stages, our shows, our events, our red carpets,’ Mason continued. 

‘We’ll take a look at anyone who is asking to be a part of that, asking to be in attendance, and we’ll make our decisions at that point. But we’re not going to be in the business of restricting people from submitting their work for our voters to decide on.’
