Marilyn Manson Dropped by His Label Following Evan Rachel Wood's Abuse Claims
Loma Vista will no longer be working with the artist
Published Feb 01, 2021Marilyn Manson has been dropped by his record label following Evan Rachel Wood's claim that he "horrifically abused" the actress for years.
Today Loma Vista made the announcement that the label will no longer be working with Manson.
"In light of today's disturbing allegations by Evan Rachel Wood and other women naming Marilyn Manson as their abuser, Loma Vista will cease to further promote his current album, effective immediately," the statement from the label reads. "Due to these concerning developments, we have also decided not to work with Marilyn Manson on any future projects."
Manson has released his last three albums through Loma Vista, including 2020's We Are Chaos. His artist page is now no longer featured on the label's website.
It should be noted that Manson is not directly signed to the label, as he has retained the rights to his music while licensing it to Loma Vista, a division of Concord Music.
Wood wrote the following:
The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. 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 many victims who will no longer be silent.
Four other women have also named Marilyn Manson as their abusers with separate statements made to Vanity Fair.
UPDATE (2/2, 11:30 a.m. ET): Manson has now released a statement regarding the allegations, while news has also broke that he's now been cut from multiple upcoming TV show appearances.
