Marilyn Manson not charged by Los Angeles County District Attorney after rape allegation surfaces


The Los Angeles District Attorney has decided not to pursue rape charges that were filed against Brian Warner, publicly known as Marilyn Manson.

The 49-year-old singer was recently accused of allegedly raping a woman back in October 2011, and also faced the possibility of charges of battery and assault with a deadly weapon being brought against him. 

On Friday, the D.A.’s office announced it would not charge the Antichrist Superstar rocker due to ‘absence of corroboration.’

TMZ recently obtained legal documents regarding the allegations, but exact details surrounding the incident remain unclear. 

A law enforcement source did tell the outlet that the battery and assault charges, ‘stem from some sort of cutting that happened during the sex.’

Those charges will not be filed because the statute of limitations on them has expired.

Manson’s attorney, Howard E. King, spoke with the tabloid news website: ‘It is not surprising that the District Attorney, after investigation, summarily rejected the claims made in a police report filed by a former acquaintance against Brian Warner p/k/a Marilyn Manson.’

‘The allegations made to the police were and are categorically denied by Mr. Warner and are either completely delusional or part of a calculated attempt to generate publicity for the claimant’s business of selling Manson memorabilia.’

Adding, ‘The police report that spurred the investigation was accompanied by the woman’s press release and other attempts to generate publicity that fraudulently claimed she was held captive by Mr. Warner for 48 hours in 2011.

‘Any claim of sexual impropriety or imprisonment at that, or any other, time is false.’

Manson was single back in October 2011, having recently ended an extended on-again, off-again relationship with Evan Rachel Wood, now 30.

The couple announced their relationship in January of 2007, when she was just 19, and initially met on the set of 2005’s Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll.

That relationship is part of what broke up Manson’s first marriage to Dita Von Teese.
