The charges continue against Marilyn Manson.

Evan Rachel Wood thus accused the singer of having raped her while taking advantage of the filming of one of her clips.

The American actress, known for her roles in the series

Westworld 

or in the film

Thirteen

, formulates her accusations in the HBO documentary

Phoenix Rising

, presented at the Sundance film festival.

Agreement for “simulated sex” but no more

In this production, which shows the fight to increase the statute of limitations for sex crimes to allow victims to obtain justice, the actress looks back on the set in 2007 of the video for

Heart-Shaped Glasses

, one of the hits of Marilyn Manson, then his companion.

Evan Rachel Wood started dating Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, in 2006, at the age of 18.

He was 37 at the time.

“We had talked about a simulated sex scene.

But when the cameras were rolling, he started to really penetrate me.”

“I never agreed to that,” she insists.

Actress since childhood, she explains that she "did not know how to say no" because she had "been conditioned and trained never to answer, to go after everything at all costs".

The film crew "did not know what to do"

“I was forced into a commercial sex act under a false pretext (…) I was raped in front of a camera”, she testifies.

During the attack, "I can say that the team was very embarrassed and that no one knew what to do," adds the actress.

According to the documentary, Marilyn Manson then pressured the young woman to assure reporters that there was no real sex scene during filming.

The singer's attorney, Howard King, denied the accusations.

"Of all of Evan Rachel Wood's false claims about Brian Warner, his fanciful retelling of the shooting of the

Heart-Shaped Glasses 

music video

15 years ago is the most brazen and easiest to refute, as there were many witnesses “, he wrote in a press release.

An investigation already opened for violence

"The simulated sex scene required several hours of filming with multiple takes from different angles, and several long breaks between each camera installation," says the lawyer.

"Brian didn't have sex with Evan on that set, and she knows that's the truth," King continues.

Several women, like actress Esmé Bianco, have accused Marilyn Manson of rape and other assaults, which he denies.

Los Angeles police confirmed last year that they had opened an investigation against the singer on charges of violence within the framework of the couple, relating to acts committed between 2009 and 2011.

His record label Loma Vista Recordings and talent agency CAA have both severed ties with the singer, now 53, following the charges against him.

However, he continues to record titles and appears in particular on the album

Donda 

released last year by Kanye West.
