Marilyn Manson reached a settlement with Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco on Tuesday (24th). Bianco reached an agreement in her lawsuit against the shock rocker and his record company. Lawyer Jay Ellwanger explained in an email:

“In order to move on with her life and career.” 

In an email, Manson’s attorney Howard King confirmed the agreement in which he said the allegations against Manson “simply never happened” and were “probably false.” The lawsuit was filed against him in 2021, describing horrific allegations, including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse between 2009 and 2011. 

While the two have settled, details of the terms were not released. The settlement was decided just a few weeks after a California judge dismissed model Ashley Morgan Smithline’s case against Manson. The shock rocker has been claiming his innocence and has since filed a defamation lawsuit against his former girlfriend, actress Evan Rachel Wood, and her former girlfriend, Illma Gore. Both were sued by the singer for intentional infliction of emotional stress, defamation, violation of the Comprehensive Computer Data and Access Fraud Act, and Impersonation over the internet. Additional details surrounding these allegations and the settlement terms haven’t reached the surface.
