Ellie Rowsell, the singer with Mercury-winning British band Wolf Alice, has accused Marilyn Manson of pointing a camera in her skirt at a festival

It comes after American actress Evan Rachel Wood and four other women post reports of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse

“It’s sad to see people defending him, just because he made his depravity visible, doesn’t he have a free pass to abuse women ?!”

The rock star did not respond on Rowsell’s account The BBC has asked its representatives for comment. He denied Woods allegations, saying they were “terrible distortions of reality”

I met Marilyn backstage at a festival a few years ago.After his compliments to my band became hyperbolic, I became suspicious of his behavior. I was shocked when I looked down and saw that he was wearing my skirt filmed a Gopro

Rowsell wrote on Twitter: “I met Marilyn backstage at a festival a few years ago

“After his compliments to my band became increasingly hyperbolic, I became suspicious of his behavior. I was shocked when I looked down to see him filming my rock with a GoPro [camera]”

The singer / songwriter, whose indie band won the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2018, added that there was “no impact on his behavior” at the time and that his own team admitted that such incidents were not uncommon / p>

“If he does this all the time, why on earth has he headlined festivals for so many years?” She asked

“When will we stop empowering misogynists because of their success? Women need to feel safe in the male-dominated world of the music industry

“I wasn’t sure I should bring up any of this, but Manson claims in his most recent statement that his relationships were ‘completely consensual’ – I don’t think he knows the importance of consent when dealing with boy Women at festivals “

Last week, Wood claimed Manson “horribly abused” her during their three-year relationship in the late 1990s

Last week, his ex-wife Dita Von Teese said the allegations “do not match my personal experience during our seven years together as a couple” She wrote on Instagram: “If they had, I would not have married him in December 2005. I left 12 months later for infidelity and substance abuse”

She added, “Abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship. I urge those of you who have suffered abuse to take steps toward healing and the strength to fully realize yourself”

Meanwhile, Oscar-winning Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor re-denied claims in Manson’s 1998 memoir that the couple were involved in sexual assault

“I’ve spoken about my dislike of Manson as a person over the years and broken ties with him nearly 25 years ago,” Reznor said last week

“As I said at the time, the passage from Manson’s memoir is a complete fiction. I was angry and offended when it came out and I remain so today”
