In April, Bianco filed a complaint accusing Manson of sexual assault, sexual violence and human trafficking, and in February, the “Westworld” star Wood alleged that Manson had “horribly mistreated” her for years. years “.
Manson rebuffed Wood’s assertions, saying, “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. No matter how – and why – others now choose to distort the past, it’s the truth. “
