Game Of Thrones Actress Esme Bianco Accuses Marilyn Manson Of Physical And Emotional Abuse

Esme Bianco has alleged Marilyn Manson physically and emotionally abused her during their relationship.

Esme, 38, who played the prostitute, Ros, on Game of Thrones, had previously revealed she developed PTSD because of a "domestic-violence relationship", but didn't name her alleged abuser at the time.

But following the 'Dope Show' singer's former fiancee Evan Rachel Wood and a number of other women accusing him of abuse and sexual misconduct, Esme has accused Manson of leaving her with physical scars and PTSD during the two months they lived together at his Los Angeles home while dating in 2011, a time in which she felt like a “prisoner".

In an interview with The Cut, Esme branded the 52-year-old rocker — whose real name is Brian Warner — as a “massive role model who really helped me through some incredibly dark and difficult times as a teenager” to a “monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women".

Esme was first introduced to her teenage idol Marilyn in 2005, through his then-wife Dita Von Teese, and they remained friends and kept in touch following the couple's divorce in 2007.

Two years later, Esme — who was married at the time — was asked by Manson to star in the music video for his song 'I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies.'

She stated that he'd told her the video was centred on a "kidnapping" and that she'd "have to pretend to like being manhandled" by him for promo.

Esme agreed to shoot the video and has alleged she faced physical and sexual violence at the hands of Manson on set.

Esme also claimed Manson once cut her torso with a knife and she "didn't fight it".

In the interview, she recalled: "I just remember laying there, and I didn’t fight it. It was kind of this final-straw moment where I had lost all sense of hope and safety."

Esme left Manson in May 2011, after he allegedly chased her around his home with an axe.

Speaking about their relationship, she added: “I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet.”

Esme suffered from night terrors and panic attacks years after the end of their relationship and claimed her career was derailed after Game of Thrones ended.

She said: "I couldn’t step up to meet that moment in my life because of what he’d done to me."

Esme also recounted her relationship with Manson on Good Morning America on Thursday (Feb 11).

She told the network Manson would keep their apartment cold at 62˚F (16 degrees Celsius) and dark with blacked out windows.

On one occasion, the actress said she was kept in his home for three days. “I was given nothing to eat, he gave me drugs and alcohol, and I essentially was not allowed to leave,” she recalled.

She said Manson would tell her he wanted to “murder other women” and “sneak down to the room where I was sleeping and rape me” in text messages.

He also made her dress in heels, lingerie and stockings, she claimed, and would show her off to his entourage “pulling up her dress to show them bruises that he'd given her”.

Manson has previously denied the abuse allegations made against him, including those made by Evan, who accused him of “grooming” her when she was a teenager. He called the abuse claims against him "horrible distortions of reality" — BANG
