The Talk's Sharon Osbourne says Marilyn Manson has 'always been respectful' amid sex abuse claims
THE Talk's Sharon Osbourne claimed Marilyn Manson has "always been respectful" amid multiple sex abuse claims being made against the musician.
Most famously, Evan Rachel Wood named Marilyn as her abuser in an Instagram post.
During the most recent episode of The Talk, Sharon opened up about her relationship of 25 years with the singer.
She told the women around her: "[I’ve] worked with him for many, many years, and, obviously, I would not know what goes on in his bedroom; neither do I want to.
"But as far as people who’ve been going on all my socials, calling me names and things and putting up pictures of Marilyn and I, you know, there’s something called a working relationship, and that’s what I’ve had with Marilyn for many years.
"I know nothing about his sexual preferences or the way he treats women.
"I know how he treats an older woman, which is me, and he’s always been respectful."
Marilyn has always been close to Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne and was even set to appear with him during his 2020 tour before it was canceled.
Sharon speaking about her relationship with Marilyn comes as several women have recounted horror experiences they had with the singer.
First was Evan, who joined by four other women, denounced Marilyn and claimed he abused her for years.
The 33-year-old Westworld actress took to Instagram in the early hours of Monday to reveal the identity of her alleged abuser.
She claimed: "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."
Hours after she accused her ex of the abuse, Marilyn posted a statement on his Instagram denying the allegations.
He wrote: “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.
“My intimate relationships have always been entire consensual with like-minded partners.
“Regardless of how – and why – others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
She had met Marilyn when she was just 18 years old and he was 36 and married to Dita Von Teese.
Following Evan's statement, other women came forward with similar allegations.
A stylist claimed that Marilyn held a gun to her head during a 2010 photoshoot.
Bailey, who is trans, also claimed Manson told her: "I don't like f*****s".
She reportedly first made the claims in social media posts in 2017, but repeated them in a video posted to Instagram this week.
The Sun also reported that it wasn't just sexual partners that the singer allegedly attacked, but also his mom.
The goth rocker admitted to hitting, spitting on, and trying to choke his mom, Barbara Warner, during violent outbursts in his youth.
Barbara died following a battle with dementia aged 68 in 2014.
Marilyn subsequently described his lat mother as "the first and greatest believer in me", adding: "I’ll make you proud and satisfied that you know that you made the son you wanted."
Phoebe Bridgers also claimed that Marilyn "bragged about having a 'rape room' in his home."
The Motion Sickness singer claimed: "TW: I went to Marilyn Manson’s house when I was a teenager with some friends. I was a big fan.
"He referred to a room in his house as the “r*pe room”, I thought it was just his horrible frat boy sense of humor. I stopped being a fan.
"I stand with everyone who came forward," she said, before blasting his management and other alleged enablers of his behavior.
"The label knew, management knew, the band knew," she claimed. "Distancing themselves now, pretending to be shocked and horrified is f***ing pathetic."
On Thursday, cops swarmed the singer's mansion after reports that someone was inside, screaming that they wanted to leave.
Police did a welfare check on the 52-year-old shock rocker on Wednesday, after a friend had trouble contacting him.
The officers were also unable to make contact with Manson – but a witness told them that a person inside the LA property was shouting that “someone wouldn’t let them leave."
The cops returned two hours later but left after a representative for the singer, whose real name is Brian Warner, assured them the star was fine.
