In a recent interview with People magazine, model-actor Ashley Morgan Smithline talked in depth about sexual abuse and torture that she suffered while she was dating Marilyn Manson, who she called a “monster”.
Smithline accused Manson for several rapes, even when she was unconscious and “tied up”. She also mentioned that during one of the rapes her nose was broken.
“There was so much abuse, there was so many things of him… even just shoving in his fist in my mouth, that could have killed me… putting the pillow over my face a little too long.”
Smithline also alleged that the singer also whipped her and cut her, including carving his initials into her thigh using a knife emblazoned with a swastika.
She likened the relationship to being in a cult, saying she was “brainwashed” by the singer, who she claimed deprived her of sleep, made her drink his blood as part of a “blood pact” and imprisoned her in a glass box more than 100 times.
“I was afraid for my life every single moment I was with him, but more I was afraid he was going to get rid of me and find someone else. And that’s really sick… that’s very brainwashed.”
Manson’s camp on the other side denied Smithline’s claims via a statement to the magazine: “There are so many falsehoods within her claims that we wouldn’t know where to begin to answer them. This relationship, to the limited extent it was a relationship, didn’t last one week.” (People say Smithline has provided them e-mails and messages they say span two years).
