Evan Rachel Wood has accused her ex-fiance Marilyn Manson of “grooming” her and “horrifically” abusing her for years.

“The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson,” the “Westworld” star said in a statement posted to Instagram Monday. “He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him, before he ruins any more lives. I stand with the many victims who will no longer be silent.”

Wood, who is now 33, met Manson when she was 18 and he was 36. The two were engaged in 2010 before breaking up.

Representatives for Manson did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
