The newest allegations against Marilyn Manson accuse the controversial and troubled singer of locking women up in a small, soundproofed enclosure dubbed the ‘Bad Girls’ Room’.
According to a new exposé by Rolling Stone, the 52-year-old singer allegedly converted a preexisting recording booth in a West Hollywood apartment into a cell that he would often use to lock women in to psychologically torture and punish.
Ashley Morgan Smithline, one of the many women suing Manson for sexual assault and, in Smithline’s case, unlawful imprisonment, described the alleged ‘Bad Girls’ Room’ in great detail during an interview with the music outlet.
“At first, he made it sound cool,” Smithline recollected during the interview. “Then, he made it sound very punitive. Even if I was screaming, no one would hear me.”
“First you fight, and he enjoys the struggle. I learned to not fight it, because that was giving him what he wanted. I just went somewhere else in my head.”
Another alleged victim of Manson’s, the actress Esme Bianco who is perhaps most famous for her role as Ros in Game of Thrones, is suing the singer for sexual assault and sex trafficking. Bianco claims that during her two years dating Manson he would verbally and physically abuse her, even allegedly going so far as to bite, cut, electrocute and whip her.
“That was a final-straw moment for me,” Bianco told the outlet while describing one particularly horrifying experience where Manson allegedly chased her around with an ax smashing holes in the walls of the apartment, and how she felt “in imminent danger for her life.”
But what is most surprising is that the existence of this ‘Bad Girls’ Room’ was allegedly common knowledge, and that Manson reportedly talked about it on numerous occasions.
For example, the outlet claims that during an interview with another magazine in 2012, the depraved singer reportedly said: “If anyone’s bad, I can lock them in it, and it’s soundproof.” There was reportedly no doubt that Manson was referring to the ‘Bad Girls’ Room’.
These new allegations, and the reports regarding this room where Manson would lock his victims, come a little more than a month since Radar reported that a judge rejected the singer’s request to dismiss Bianco’s sexual assault and sex trafficking lawsuit.
Since the judge rejected his request for the dismissal of the lawsuit, Manson will have to face at least one of his accusers in court. There is no doubt that if the ‘Bad Girls’ Room’ does exist, it will come to light during Manson’s trial.
