LOS ANGELES (AP) – Authorities raided the home of rocker Marilyn Manson on Monday after allegations of physical and sexual abuse by several women.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Assistant Eva Jimenez said a search warrant has been served at the home of Manson, whose legal name is Brian Hugh Warner. She wouldn’t give more details.
The Sheriff’s Department said in February that his detectives began investigating Manson into reports of domestic violence between 2009 and 2011 in West Hollywood, where he lived at the time.
The women involved have not been identified, but several women have publicly alleged this year that they were physically, sexually and emotionally assaulted by Manson at the time of the incidents being investigated, and some have taken legal action. .
Manson’s attorney Howard E. King declined to comment immediately. Manson denied the allegations and King called them “provably false.”
The search of Manson’s home was first reported by TMZ.
The 52-year-old shock rocker ex-fiancée, “Westworld” actor Evan Rachel Wood, first named him as his attacker in an Instagram post in February.
