Marilyn Manson’s lawyer Howard King filed a motion, which was shared by Insider, to deny the sexual and physical assault accusations of Game of Thrones star Esme Bianco by defining it as a ‘coordinated attack.’
As you probably know, more than fifteen women, who had a relationship with Marilyn Manson in the past, came forth to reveal physical, psychological, and sexual abuses of Manson during their relationships as a part of the MeToo movement. One of them was Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood, who accused him of grooming in addition to psychological and sexual abuse.
Moreover, model Ashley Morgan Smithline filed a lawsuit and opened up about being physically and sexually abused by Manson, and detailed various incidents of rape and captivity. The Game of Thrones star Esme Bianco also came forth as a part of the MeToo movement after she filed another lawsuit, accusing Marilyn of sexual assault and battery.
Manson’s lawyer Howard King filed a motion to demand the dismissal of the charges of Esme Bianco according to California’s statute of limitations law. King claimed that it was a part of a coordinated attack on Manson’s career and Bianco was exploiting the MeToo movement to draw more attention.
In Howard King’s words, he stated:
“Bianco’s claims were a key component of a coordinated attack by multiple plaintiffs, who are cynically and dishonestly seeking to monetize and exploit the MeToo movement.”
It’s been known that Marilyn Manson only answers these allegations through his lawyer’s public statements. Therefore, it seems like Manson thought he became the target of over fifteen MeToo exploiters who decided to accuse him of physical, psychological, and sexual abuse.
