Marilyn Manson is being sued yet again. TMZ reports that model Ashley Morgan Smithline claims she suffered sexual assault and sexual battery in the lawsuit dating back to 2010, allegations which Manson's team denies. She's also suing for intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.
According to the documents, Smithline claims Manson initially reached out to her on social media and told her he wanted to cast her in an upcoming film project. She says he developed an obsession, calling her “the perfect girl for him.”
According to Smithline, Manson flew her to L.A. in November of 2010 and asked her to move in with him, which she did. That was the start of their consensual sexual relationship, however Smithline says that just days after moving in she “awoke from unconsciousness with her ankles and wrists tied together behind her back and (Manson) sexually penetrating her.” Despite her pleas to stop, he allegedly told her to shut up and squeezed her ribs, causing injuries. She also claims to have suffered injuries to her vagina.
