In the 16-page lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court (read it here), his former assistant Ashley Walters claims that Manson regularly threatened her, including “drug-induced fits of rage.”
The lawsuit says: “During these drug binges, he threw dishes at Walters, threatened to commit suicide, and even pushed her into a wall.”
On more than one occasion, she snuck food into a bedroom for Evan Rachel Wood and Esmé Bianco, as they were afraid to leave the room. Walters says Manson threw “a prop skull so hard at Wood that it left a large raised welt in her stomach.”
On several occasions, according to the lawsuit, Manson forced her to stay up for 48 hours straight and he “fed her cocaine to force her to stay awake.” Walters also describes, in detail, situations when Manson encouraged friends to grope her, terminated her employment in October 2011.
A member of Manson’s team vehemently denied any accusations of assault.
This is all a fucking bummer. So… I don’t know… do you like toast too?
