Actor Esmé Bianco sues Marilyn Manson, alleging sexual abuse

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Game of Thrones” actor Esmé Bianco has sued Marilyn Manson alleging sexual, physical and emotional abuse. She filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court Friday. Bianco alleges that Manson twice flew her to LA under false pretenses for projects that never materialized. The lawsuit says that he whipped her, threatened to rape her, cut her during sex without her consent and posted pictures of the cuts online. An attorney who previously represented Manson has not immediately responded to a request for comment. Manson said earlier this year that all of his intimate relationships have been entirely consensual. Bianco has said she is coming forward publicly in hopes others who have been abused speak out.
