Marilyn Manson calls for court to drop Esme Bianco’s sex assault lawsuit against him … citing time limits and ‘twisted tales that bear no resemblance to reality’

  • Manson’s lawyers said statute of limitations has passed on Bianco’s allegations 
  • Bianco has accused musical artist of sexual, physical and emotional abuse 
  • Manson has faced allegations of sex abuse from Evan Rachel Wood and others 
  • The Dope Show singer says all of his sexual encounters have been consensual  

Marilyn Manson is calling for a Los Angeles federal court to toss a sex assault lawsuit filed by Game of Thrones actress Esme Bianco, saying that Bianco’s statute of limitations has passed on the legal claim.

Manson’s legal team said that Bianco’s allegations of sexual, physical and emotional abuse are the result of ‘coordinated attack’ by multiple women against the musical artist ‘cynically and dishonestly seeking to monetize and exploit the #MeToo movement,’ according to court docs reviewed by TMZ.

The legal team for Manson said Bianco ‘spent months plotting, workshopping, and fine-tuning … twisted tales that bear no resemblance to reality.’ 

Details: In an April 2021 filing, Bianco claimed that in 2009, Manson had tied her up, hit her with a whip and used a knife to cut her. She was snapped in LA in 2017

The latest: Marilyn Manson, 52, is calling for a Los Angeles federal court to toss a sex assault lawsuit filed by Game of Thrones actress Esme Bianco, 39, saying that Bianco’s statute of limitations has passed on the legal claim 

The Dope Show singer, whose real name is Brian Warner, says all of his sexual encounters have been consensual.

Manson’s attorneys said Bianco and others have sought to present to the court Manson in his dark rock star image.

In an April 2021 filing, Bianco claimed that in 2009, Manson had tied her up, hit her with a whip and used a knife to cut her.

Bianco, who played Ros on the HBO show, told the court Manson had also trafficked her from England to the U.S. by lying to her about show business opportunities.

In the suit, Bianco said that Manson had promised her a role in the video for his track, I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies, but did not book her a hotel, having her stay at his home. She said no crew was on hand, as he wanted to shoot the clip with his phone.

Bianco’s lawyers said in court docs that ‘it took Ms. Bianco years to understand the extent of Mr. Warner’s physical, sexual, psychological, and emotional abuse,’ and that ‘her career suffered due to the deterioration of her mental health.

‘She deals with complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression, and panic attacks to this day as a result.’

Howard E. King, a lawyer for the musician, said in a statement after the initial suit was filed, that ‘these claims are provably false.

‘To be clear, this suit was only filed after my client refused to be shaken down by Ms. Bianco and her lawyer and give in to their outrageous financial demands based on conduct that simply never occurred. We will vigorously contest these allegations in court and are confident that we will prevail.’

In a statement, Bianco said she was publicly identifying herself in the sex assault suit in hope of giving confidence to others in similar situations.

Manson has also faced allegations of sex abuse from Evan Rachel Wood and others this year.
