Game of Thrones actress Esme Blanco has joined the band of women who claimed to have suffered violent and abusive experiences at the hands of Marilyn Manson.
Blanco shares in an interview with New York Magazine how she came to be in a relationship with Manson and lived with him for a month in 2011.
The Abusive Relationship: “Almost destroyed me.”
Other than the alleged sexual abuse, Blanco also claims that Manson once “repeatedly cut her torso with a knife,” was exhibiting violenct acts while they shot a music video together, and would also control her life, including to whom she spoke with.
“He’s not a misunderstood artist,” Bianco told reporter Angelina Chapin. “He deserves to be behind bars for the rest of his life.”
The actress stated that Manson was a “massive role model who really helped me through some incredibly dark and difficult times as a teenager,” but turned into a “monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women.”
But the abuse doesn’t stop there. In addition to sexual abuse and acts of physical violence, Blanco also shared moments where she was humiliated by Manson, many of these stories supported the claims by a source, pseudonym “Alex.”
One incident happened in 2011 when Blanco moved in to live with the singer. The same year, Blanco played Ros, a sex worker, in the series Game of Thrones, where her character was heavily featured.
While cohabitating with him, the Game of Thrones aired and Manson would play her sex scene in front of guests. Source pseudonym “Alex” “remembers the singer showing it at least four times and saying, ‘That’s my girlfriend, she’s a whore. Look, her tits are out.'”
By June 2011, Blanco told that magazine that she fled Manson’s apartment after he chases her with an ax. This incident led her to break up with him.
The actress shares that the relationship not only hindered her acting career but also left her with physical scars and PTSD.
Manson’s representative did not give an immediate response to Blanco’s claims.
