Game of Thrones Actress Sues Marilyn Manson for Alleged Abuse, Says He Once Cut Her Nazi Knife During Sex

Marilyn Manson

A celebrity sued singer Marilyn Manson on Friday to get an alleged pattern of sexual abuse. Plaintiff Esme Bianco, who had a recurring role as Ros from the early phases of Game of Thrones, was one of the women who formerly stepped forward with claims against the provocateur musician. She went one step farther with her narrative by submitting at a California court.
In her complaint, she clarified Manson (real name Brian Hugh Warner) participating at a years-long campaign of control and abuse against her, which escalated once he persuaded her to fly into Los Angeles to get a video movie. But there was allegedly no team, he left her stay at his house, forced her to be on-call 24/7, plied her with drugs and alcohol, threatened her, and beat her.
“He forced Ms. Bianco to observe a very violent movie that caused her to faint,” the lawsuit stated. “He attempted to force her to perform sexual acts on camera with a different girl who
was present throughout the shoot. Maybe most horrifyingly,” Mr. Warner locked Ms. Bianco from the bedroom, tied into a prayer kneeler, and beat with a whip that Mr. Warner stated was used by the Nazis. In addition, he electrocuted her.”
According to the complaint, issues continued through May 2009, if they began a sexual relationship during his trip to London. He persuaded her April 2011 to go to Los Angeles to live with him. Again, he was described as being commanding, and also threatening to interfere with her visa procedure. The suspect supposedly kept the apartment in”near-total darkness,” wanted the warmth to at all times stay at 63 degree Fahrenheit, was verbally abusive to Bianco, threw items, also berated her for matters, including voicing concern about him playing violent and sensual movies throughout the apartment.
“On another occasion, Mr. Warner cut Ms. Bianco using a Nazi knife during intercourse, without her approval, and photographed the cuts in her torso. Then he posted the pictures on the internet without her permission”
The plaintiff claims she suffers from post-traumatic anxiety disorder, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks due to what happened.
“It required Ms. Bianco decades to comprehend the amount of Mr. Warner’s physical, sexual, mental, and emotional abuse,” the lawsuit stated.
Talent manager Tony Ciulla, who allegedly fell Manson as a customer amid sexual abuse claims that emerged this season, is a co-defendant from the complaint. The plaintiff asserted he knew about the abuse, and let it continue.
“All these claims are provably untrue,” Manson lawyer Howard E. King said in a statement obtained by Deadline. “To be clear, this suit was only filed after my customer refused to be calmed down by Ms. Bianco and her attorney and give into their outrageous financial needs based on behavior that just never occurred. We will vigorously contest these allegations in court and therefore are certain that we will prevail.”
