Content warning: This article contains references to sexual assault.

Marilyn Manson has been dropped by his record label, Loma Vista Recordings, following abuse allegations made by five separate women, including actress Evan Rachel Wood.

Loma Vista Recordings released Manson’s past two albums, 2017’s Heaven Upside Down and 2020’s WE ARE CHAOS.

In a statement given to Pitchfork, the label said, “In light of today’s disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately.

“Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects.”

Yesterday, Evan Rachel Wood took to Instagram to accuse Manson, her ex-partner, of “horrific” abuse over the years.

She also shared the stories by four other woman who accused Manson of abuse, with some alleging physical threats, rape, “torture tactics” and more.

“He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission,” Wood wrote.

“I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives.

“I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”

UPDATE 02/02/21, 1.37PM: Marilyn Manson has released a statement today responding to the allegations.
