Last year, Wood accused Manson of grooming her when she was a teenager and said he “horrifically abused me for years.” She wrote on social media, “I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander or blackmail. 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 victims who will no longer be silent.”
Manson denied her abuse allegations at the time, saying his “intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual.” He wrote in an Instagram statement, “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.”
Los Angeles police announced last February that they were investigating abuse allegations against the musician.
In November, detectives from the Special Victims Bureau of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at Manson’s home in Los Angeles, taking items including “media storage devices,” per a press release from the department.
The release stated that the Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegations of domestic violence and sexual assault, which allegedly occurred between 2009 and 2011 in the West Hollywood area of L.A.
According to LAPD, there are no updates in the case following the search.
