The Game Of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco accused Marilyn Manson of being abusive – saying he made her feel “like a prisoner” and that the singer “almost destroyed” her.

In an interview with The Cut published on Wednesday, Bianco said the abuse started in 2009 when she starred in an unreleased music video for Manson. She alleged that during the shoot she barely slept or ate.

Bianco told The Cut that Manson dictated when she could sleep, what she could wear and when she could leave his apartment. She also said Manson inflicted cuts and bruises that left permanent scars on her body.

“I basically felt like a prisoner,” she said. “I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet.”

The actress also claimed that Manson chased her with an axe and would repeatedly play her sex scene in Game of Thrones to guests on a projector in order to humiliate her.

In June of 2011, she said that she finally escaped his house while he was asleep.

Bianco’s claims come just a few weeks after Evan Rachel Wood and other women also accused Manson of abuse, grooming and manipulation.

Manson issued a statement on Instagram on February 2, denying the accusations and calling the claims of abuse “horrible distortions of reality”. He has yet to comment on the accusations from Bianco.

Manson has since been dropped by his record label and his long time manager, as well as removed from various television projects.
