In a new interview with The Cut, the actress claims the rocker, née Brian Hugh Warner, physically abused her during their 2011 relationship, describing him as a "monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women."
According to Bianco, she was introduced to Manson by his ex-wife Dita Von Teese in 2005, but it wasn't until 2009 that he allegedly abused her for the first time.
She claims the abuse took place on the set of the music video for his song "I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies." Bianco recalls how Manson forced her to wear lingerie and tied her to a prayer kneeler, where he allegedly whipped her repeatedly.
Following the shoot, Bianco claims they began a sexual relationship, with the actress leaving her husband two years into their affair.
After splitting from her husband in 2011, Manson's abuse allegedly escalated.
If we follow this timeline, Esme met Manson in 2005, started dating him in 2009 where, as she explains it, the beginning of her association with Manson was with filming of this music video, in particular the latter half of.
She began an extramarital affair with Manson in 2009, staying with him for two years until 2011.
If I understand correctly, she consciously chose to start an extramarital affair with Manson after going through what sheherself describes as a horrendously abusive experience while filming in 2009, and keep their relationship going for at least 2 years. She also split from her husband at a time when Manson's abuse allegedly escalated. Why leave a marriage for the person you're having an affair with if they're abusive and especially if things were so bad?
Manson might indeed be in trouble. But did Borland quit or was he booted?
Also, once again, we're not getting the entire context or a whole story. We're getting snippets of a conversation saying he's agreeing with Evan and "it happened." What exactly is he agreeing with? A guitarist isn't with a romantically linked couple the entire time they're together. What details was he privy to, and not? Is he bitter?
What bothers me about these accusations is that we're getting one side of a story and at that, you're getting bits and pieces and not the entire context. We're only getting what's most sensational.
One area that Manson definitely screwed up wasn't just the infidelity that broke up his marriage (people don't seem to care about that), but if I recall Dita's divorce comments correctly, he had an "unprofessional relationship with a teenager" - and if Evan was a minor and he was having sex with her while she was under 18, this is going to be a base for these claims.
No one knows what happened, and as more women come forward, it's not looking good. But what bothers me is when people are getting tried by the public and social media mob.
