Marilyn Manson is staring down the barrel of more abuse claims, this time involving a teenage girl.
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Manson allegedly groomed and repeatedly sexually assaulted the 16-year-old girl in the mid 1990s.
The girl, named as Jane Doe in the suit, filed proceedings against the shock rocker on January 30 in New York's Nassau County Supreme Court.
Filings claim Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, invited the 16-year-old on his tour bus in the wake of a Dallas concert in September 1995.
Manson then allegedly threatened the teen, telling her 'if she told anyone, he would kill her and her family'.
As per the court documents, it took a matter of weeks for Manson to begin calling the teen to demand explicit sexual photos of her and her friends.
He allegedly ordered her to send them to his fan club, Satan’s Bakesale.
Manson, who is now aged 54, went on to invite the teen to a show in New Orleans in December 1995.
As per court filings, he took the underage girl back to his tour bus and 'became more aggressive and again sexually assaulted [her], including kissing, biting her breast, oral copulation and penetration'.
When Doe was 19, in 1999, she was again invited on tour where the rocker 'continued to groom and sexually assault [her] for the next four weeks'.
The suit adds: "[Manson] often coerced Plaintiff to have sex with him and other band members or his assistant at the same time. [Manson] controlled what Plaintiff could do, who could touch Plaintiff, and who he wanted Plaintiff to be with sexually, all while providing Plaintiff with drugs."
The lawsuit also names Manson's record labels Interscope and Nothing Records as it alleges they 'knew or should have known that [Manson] had a history of giving drugs to female fans he allowed backstage, onto the bus and in hotel rooms, and sexually assaulting minors and women'.
The lawsuit also alleges the record labels were fully aware Manson was inviting underage girls onto his bus after shows and 'were well-aware of [his] obsession with sexual violence and childhood sexual assault'.
Jane Doe’s lawyer Karen Barth Menzies told Page Six: "Sexual predators in the music industry don’t act alone. It takes a network of people to aid and protect the artists who commit these heinous acts."
“In order for there to be meaningful changes in the music industry, we have to do more than just hold the predators accountable.
"We have to force the record companies to acknowledge the crimes they allow to occur, and in some instances facilitate, and we have to force them to take responsibility for permitting and profiting from outrageous criminal behavior."
Manson has been approached for comment.
