Nine Inch Nails’s Trent Reznor condemns former friend Marilyn Manson

Trent Reznor has condemned ex friend Marilyn Manson amid his abuse allegations.

The Nine Inch Nails frontman, 55, insisted he ‘cut ties’ with Manson more than two decades ago and said he is still ‘offended’ by a recently-resurfaced tale from the rocker’s 1998 autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell.

In the book, Manson, 52, alleged he and the hitmaker physically and sexually assaulted an intoxicated woman but Reznor said these claims were ‘fabricated.’

The passage was recently shared on Twitter after the Dope Show singer’s former fiancée Evan Rachel Wood, 33, and a host of other women accused him of abuse. 

Trent said in a statement given to Pitchfork: ‘I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago.

‘As I said at the time, the passage from Manson’s memoir is a complete fabrication. I was infuriated and offended back when it came out and remain so today.’

The story in the book – which was co-written by Neil Strauss – was originally supposed to run in a 1995 issue of the now-defunct Empyrian Magazine.

But the tome explained the interview was never printed due to ‘content objections’ on the part of Empyrean’s publisher, Centaur Enterprises, which believed that the magazine had followed unethical interview procedures in order to extract information from Mr. Manson.

Manson had told the story in response to being asked by the interviewer how he ended up working with Trent and claimed the incident took place the night before the star told him he wanted to sign him to Nothing Records.

Trent has previously branded his former friend a ‘malicious guy’ and ‘dopey clown’.

He said in 2009: ‘He is a malicious guy and will step on anybody’s face to succeed and cross any line of decency. Seeing him now, drugs and alcohol now rule his life and he’s become a dopey clown.’

However, in 2017, Manson insisted they had reconciled.

He said: ‘He’s the one who’s actually sent me an email, we had sort of mended ways after a long time through Tyler Bates strangely enough.

‘He goes and he said in the email something along the lines of, “It really p****s me off that music’s not dangerous anymore and it reminds me of how great you were and I was and the time, the era”.’ 

It was Reznor who signed Manson to his label Nothing Records and co-produced his first two albums. 

Meanwhile, LAPD cops swarmed Manson’s Hollywood Hills home over concerns for his safety on Wednesday night, as at least 11 women have now come forward to accuse the rocker of abuse.

Four police cruisers and an LAPD helicopter were dispatched to Manson’s home around 6.00pm to perform a ‘welfare check’ on him after a concerned friend couldn’t get in touch with him, reported TMZ.

'My art and life have long been magnets for controversy': Manson, real name Brian Warner, released this statement in the wake of 'horrific abuse claims' against him by multiple women

‘My art and life have long been magnets for controversy’: Manson, real name Brian Warner, released this statement in the wake of ‘horrific abuse claims’ against him by multiple women 

Police later told DailyMail.com they were able to make contact with someone and found there was ‘no evidence of any trouble whatsoever’ at the property.

The incident took place the same day Dita Von Teese broke her silence over the mounting allegations against her ex-husband insisting she was never abused by him during their seven-year relationship.

In the last three days, almost a dozen women have accused Manson, real name Brian Warner, of abuse dating back several years.

Hollywood actor Rachel Evan Wood was among the first to publicly accuse him in an Instagram post Monday where she claimed he starting ‘grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years’.

Since then, at least 10 more women have spoken out over the alleged abuse they suffered at the hands of the rocker.

Manson has denied all allegations claiming in a statement Monday night they were ‘distortions of reality’ and insisting all of his relationships were consensual but was dropped from his record label and talent agency when the accusations surfaced.

The rocker has been dropped by the talent agency CAA after being fired by his record label and axed from TV shows American Gods and Creepshow over allegations he abused eight women. 

The agency confirmed they had cut ties with Manson to Variety but they did not offer a statement.

He has also been dropped by record label Loma Vista, Starz show American Gods and Shudder’s Creepshow.  

On Monday, five women made coordinated statements about how Manson allegedly treated them on Instagram. 

They are Westworld actress Wood an artist known only as Gabriella, photographer Ashley Walters, model Sarah McNeilly, and model Ashley Lindsay Morgan. 

They claimed they had been victims of sexual misconduct, manipulation, and physical and emotional abuse at Manson’s hands.

The women’s allegations vary but all say Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, left them with PTSD after forcing them into blood pacts, plying them with drugs, becoming violent with them and gaslighting them.

He denied the claims as ‘distortions of the truth’, insisting all of his relationships were ‘consensual’.  

On Monday night, another three women made allegations on social media that Wood re-posted on her account. They did not go into detail about their relationships with Manson but all three said he was an abuser. 

Those women are Scarlett Kapella, Brittany Leigh and Torii Lynn. A ninth woman – stylist Love Bailey – then made a separate allegation against him on her Instagram account.

After Wood’s statement on Monday morning; 

Loma Vista records, the label he was signed with, dropped him afterwards and American Gods, the TV show he appeared on, also cut ties. He then posted a statement on Instagram denying the women’s comments. 

‘Obviously, my life and my art have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality.

‘My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.’

Comments were turned off the post but it was liked by Manson’s wife, Lindsay Usich. She has not released her own statement. 

Wood met Manson when she was a teenager. In her statement, she said he ‘groomed her’ for years and ‘horrifically abused her’.

After she spoke out, Rose McGowan – another of Manson’s exes and a #MeToo crusader – released a statement to say she ‘stands with’ Wood.

She has not made any allegations of her own against Manson but said: ‘When he was with me, he was not like that but that has no bearing on whether he was like that with others before or after.

‘It takes time to come forward. I am proud of these women.’ 

She added: ‘I am profoundly sorry to those who have suffered the abuse & mental torture of Marilyn Manson.

‘When I say Hollywood is a cult, I mean the Entertainment industry including the music industry is a cult. Cult’s protect the rot at the top. 

‘Theirs is a sickness that must be stopped.’

Network Starz said of the latter: ‘Due to the allegations made against Marilyn Manson, we have decided to remove his performance from the remaining episode he is in, scheduled to air later this season. Starz stands unequivocally with all victims and survivors of abuse.’

In addition, AMC’s Shudder have pulled his upcoming episode of horror anthology series Creepshow. 

Three accusers say they had romantic relationships with him that started with him ‘love bombing them’ but then turned abusive.   

Ashley Walters said she met Manson after he contacted her on social media asking to collaborate. 

She is a photographer in Los Angeles and says she admired his work.

It’s not clear from her post when the pair met or if their relationship was ever sexual.

She says she started working for him as a personal assistant after six months, that the pair became close – ‘like family – but then their relationship changed.

She said he ‘frequently’ became violent, once threw glass plates at her and ‘offered’ her up for ‘sexual relationships with collaborators’.

‘I continue to suffer from PTSD, and struggle with depression. 

‘I stayed in touch with quite a few people who went through their own traumas, under his control. 

‘As we all struggled, as survivors do, to get on with our lives, I’d keep hearing stories disturbingly similar to our own experiences. 

ROSE MCGOWAN: I STAND WITH THE ACCUSERS

Rose McGowan, another of Manson’s exes, on Monday night said she ‘stands’ with his accusers and said Hollywood is a ‘cult’ where abuse is tolerated. 

McGowan has not made any allegations of her own against Manson. She was among the first to make claims against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. 

On Twitter on Monday night, she said: ‘I stand with Evan Rachel Wood and other brave women who have come forward. It takes years to recover from abuse and I send them strength on their journey to recovery. Let the truth be revealed. Let the healing begin.’

McGowan posted a video on Instagram to share her support of Manson victims. She did not make any allegations of her own

She then posted a lengthy Instagram video where she said: ‘I am profoundly sorry to those who have suffered the abuse & mental torture of Marilyn Manson.

‘When I say Hollywood is a cult, I mean the Entertainment industry including the music industry is a cult. Cult’s protect the rot at the top. 

‘Theirs is a sickness that must be stopped. The industrial fame complex chooses who they protect & who they’ll let be their victims. For profit.

‘I stand with Evan Rachel Wood and all of those who have or will come forward. 

‘And please don’t pull out the ‘why did they take so much time to come forward?’ question that shames victims/survivors, it’s what stops others from coming forward. 

‘And to all of those who have covered for monsters, shame on you. 

‘Rise and say no more.’

‘It became clear the abuse he’s caused; he continues to inflict on so many and I cannot stand by and let this happen to others. 

‘Brian Warner needs to be held accountable,’ she said.  

Los Angeles-based model Sarah McNeilly also used the phrase ‘love bombing’. She says Warner ‘lured’ her in by acting loving but then turned violent.

Among her claims is that he threw her against a wall, threatened to bash her face in with a baseball bat, locked her in a room when she was ‘bad’ and verbally berated her for ‘hours’.

She did not gave dates for when they knew each other. 

‘I have been afraid to bring any spotlight upon myself as to avoid winding up in his cross hairs again. 

‘As a result of the way he treated me, I suffer from mental health issues and PTSD that have affected my personal and professional relationships, self-worth and personal goals. 

‘I believe he gets off on ruining people’s lives. I stand in support of all that have and all will come forward. I want to see Brian held accountable for his evil. 

Ashley Lindsay Morgan said she met Manson when she was working as a model in Thailand in 2009. She claims they had a mutual friend and that after talking and texting for months, he flew her to Los Angeles. 

She did not detail how long they spent together but alleged abuse and said he also asked her to bring him Nazi memorabilia from Asia, even though she is Jewish.

She says she also ‘wasn’t allowed to eat or sleep or leave’ his home.  

‘I have night terrors, PTSD, anxiety, and mostly crippling OCD. I try to wash constantly to get him out or off of me. I am coming forward so he will finally stop,’ she said in part. 

The fourth woman is an artist called Gabriella. She said she met him in 2015 when she was 22 and he was 46 backstage at one of his shows.

She says he ‘love bombed’ her immediately.

‘Things went from 0 to 100 at full speed… he worked a kind of magic on me,’ she said.

Among her claims is that he forced her to take drugs with him and that they made a blood pact. 

‘I had fallen deeply for an illusion of safety and love. Every aspect of my life was affected I suffered financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

‘It has taken me five years to speak out. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and still suffer from nightmares. I blocked out a lot of the memories, but the feelings remain and manifest in various ways. The reason I’m finally sharing this traumatic 

‘Experience is for my healing and because I’m done being silent. I don’t believe it’s fair for someone to not be held accountable for their horrific actions. 

‘I’m not a victim. I’m a survivor,’ she wrote. 

Former porn star Jenna Jameson has also claimed Marilyn Manson fantasized about burning her alive and ‘liked to bite’ during sex.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, the adult movie actress divulged the disturbing details about her brief affair in 1997 with the self-styled ‘antichrist’.  

The 46-year-old mother, who now uses her partner Leon Bitton’s last name, said that unlike some of Manson’s other exes’ alleged experiences, she left him before he could inflict too much damage. 

She said: ‘Our relationship was odd. We didn’t go out long because I cut it off after he would nonchalantly say he fantasized about burning me alive. Sexually he liked to bite, and it was disconcerting.’

‘He is a lot. To say the least.’ 

She added that although Manson didn’t do anything to her without her consent, she quickly cut him loose once he expressed his twisted desires.

‘Once he started speaking to me violently, I was like… goodbye Brian. Also the bruises from him biting me weren’t fun,’ she said. 

In her statement, Evan Rachel Wood said: ‘The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. 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.’ 

She also posted screenshots of tweets written by Dan Cleary – Manson’s former assistant in December 2020.

He said in them that he knew Wood when she was with Manson and that by the end of their relationship, he had ‘broken’ her. 

Wood reconciled with her English actor Jamie Bell after her romance with Manson ended in 2010. 

She and Bell had one son together before splitting in 2013. She then revealed she was bisexual and dating a non-binary partner in 2019, but she did not reveal who they were. 

In the past, Manson has denied violence through an attorney. But in a 2009 interview with Spin, he made disturbing remarks about wanting to ‘smash’ Wood’s skull in. 

He was being asked about his new album and was asked: ‘It sounds like the period after you and Evan Rachel Wood broke up was really tough. What was your lowest point?’ 

He replied: ‘My lowest point was Christmas Day 2008, because I didn’t speak to my family. My walls were covered in scrawlings of the lyrics and cocaine bags nailed to the wall. 

Marilyn Manson’s alleged victims 

Evan Rachel Wood

Westworld star Wood, now 33, was engaged to Manson for eight months in 2010. 

The pair went public with their relationship in 2007. She was 20 at the time. 

She has in the past spoken about being abused, and testified before Congress in 2018 about being raped as part of a campaign to change domestic violence laws. She did not name her abuser at the time. 

In her statement on Monday, she wrote: ‘The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson.  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.’ 

Ashley Walters

The photographer from Los Angeles said Manson contacted her on social media asking to collaborate and the pair then met up.

She started working as a personal assistant to the rocker and the pair become close, but then he started becoming violent, she says.

Walters claims  he would throw plates at her and even offered her up for sexual relationships with collaborators. 

In her statement on Monday, she said: ‘I continue to suffer from PTSD, and struggle with depression. I stayed in touch with quite a few people who went through their own traumas, under his control. 

‘As we all struggled, as survivors do, to get on with our lives, I’d keep hearing stories disturbingly similar to our own experiences. It became clear the abuse he’s caused; he continues to inflict on so many and I cannot stand by and let this happen to others. Brian Warner needs to be held accountable.’

Sarah McNeilly

Los Angeles-based model Sarah McNeilly said Manson ‘lured’ her in by acting loving but then turned violent.

She claims he threw her against a wall, threatened to bash her face in with a baseball bat, locked her in a room when she was ‘bad’ and verbally berated her for ‘hours’.

She said in her statement: ‘I have been afraid to bring any spotlight upon myself as to avoid winding up in his crosshairs again. 

‘As a result of the way he treated me, I suffer from mental health issues and PTSD that have affected my personal and professional relationships, self-worth and personal goals. 

‘I believe he gets off on ruining people’’s lives. I stand in support of all that have and all will come forward. I want to see Brian held accountable for his evil.’

Ashley Lindsay Morgan

The model was working in Thailand in 2009 when she met Manson through a mutual friend. 

They started talking and texting for months and he flew her to Los Angeles. 

She did not detail how long they spent together but alleged abuse and said he also asked her to bring him Nazi memorabilia from Asia, even though she is Jewish.

She says she also ‘wasn’t allowed to eat or sleep or leave’ his home.  

Morgan said: ‘I have night terrors, PTSD, anxiety, and mostly crippling OCD. 

‘I try to wash constantly to get him out or off of me. … I am coming forward so he will finally stop.’

Gabriella 

Gabriella, an artist, said she met Manson in 2015 when she was 22 and he was 46 backstage at one of his shows.

Like the other alleged victims, she said the rocker was loving at first before turning violent.  

Among her claims is that he forced her to take drugs with him and that they made a blood pact. 

She said: ‘It has taken me five years to speak out and say that I was in an abusive relationship. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and still suffer from nightmares. 

‘I blocked out a lot of the memories, but the feelings remain and manifest in various ways. The reason I’m finally sharing this traumatic experience is for my healing and because I’m done being silent. 

‘I don’t believe it’s fair for someone to not be held accountable for their horrific actions. I’m not a victim. I’m a survivor.’  

Scarlette Kapella 

Kapella is a model who says Manson ‘pursued her’ in 2011 when she was working as a model in Mexico City. 

‘I had respected him as an artist and was thrilled he wanted to paint me,’ she said. 

She said he went from being charming to a ‘complete monster’ and alleged ’emotional, physical and sexual abuse’ . 

Her Instagram statement was posted by Evan Rachel Wood on Monday night.  

Torii Lynn 

Torii Lynn also posted on her Instagram story. She gave no specifics of her relationship with Manson, saying only: ‘It’s taken me years to truly understand the damage he has done to me Marilyn Manson is an abuser. I’ve experienced it first hand.’ 

Her comments were shared again by Wood and some of the other women.

On Monday night, Scarlette Kapella (left) and Torii Lynn (right) both said they too had been victims of abuse by Manson

‘And I did have an experience where I was struggling to deal with being alone and being forsaken and being betrayed by putting your trust in one person, and making the mistake of that being the wrong person. And that’s a mistake that everyone can relate to. I made the mistake of trying to, desperately, grasp on and save that and own it. And every time I called her that day — I called 158 times — I took a razor blade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands.

‘I didn’t want people to ask me every time I did an interview, ‘Oh, is this record about your relationship with your ex-girlfriend?’ But that damage is part of it, and the song ‘I Want to Kill You Like They Do in The Movies’ is about my fantasies. 

‘I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer.’  The interviewer replied: ‘Wow’. He replied: ‘Merry Christmas’. 

In 2007, Evan starred in Manson's music video for his single, Heart-Shaped Glasses (When The Heart Guides The Hand). She was 20 at the time

Manson and Wood got engaged after the interview and did not break up for another year after it took place.  

In November 2020, the comments resurfaced. Then, his reps played them down as him being a ‘theatrical rockstar’. 

‘The comments where Manson had a fantasy of using a sledgehammer on Evan and he cut himself 158 times was obviously a theatrical rockstar interview promoting a new record, and not a factual account. The fact that Evan and Manson got engaged six months after this interview would indicate that no one took this story literally.’ 

In their statements, they detailed ‘harrowing experiences that they claim included sexual assault, psychological abuse, and/or various forms of coercion, violence, and intimidation’.  

Rose McGowan, who was engaged to Marilyn, 52, for two years before they ended their romance in 2001, branded Hollywood ‘a cult’ and insisted she is supportive of the alleged survivors.

In a statement posted to Instagram, Rose penned: ‘My statement: I am profoundly sorry to those who have suffered the abuse & mental torture of Marilyn Manson. When I say Hollywood is a cult, I mean the Entertainment industry including the music industry is a cult. Cult’s protect the rot at the top…

‘Theirs is a sickness that must be stopped. The industrial fame complex chooses who they protect & who they’ll let be their victims. For profit. I stand with Evan Rachel Wood and all of those who have or will come forward… 

‘And please don’t pull out the ‘why did they take so much time to come forward?’ question that shames victims/survivors, it’s what stops others from coming forward. And to all of those who have covered for monsters, shame on you. Rise and say no more.’

Rose ended their engagement in 2001, blaming ‘lifestyle differences.’  In a statement, the actress famously said: ‘There is great love, but our lifestyle difference is, unfortunately, even greater.’  She has not accused Manson of abuse. McGowan was famously among the first women to speak out against Harvey Weinstein.  

In 2018, Wood described being abused in front of a House Judiciary Committee as part of a campaign to pass a bill of rights protecting abuse victims.

She did not name her abuser at the time and said she had been told she could not take it to police because the statute of limitations had expired. 

‘My experience with domestic violence was this: Toxic mental, physical and sexual abuse which started slow but escalated over time, including threats against my life, severe gas-lighting and brainwashing, waking up to the man that claimed to love me raping what he believed to be my unconscious body,’ she said. 

She also said she had only agreed to come forward because she learned that the her abuser had hurt other women too.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that in May of 2018, a police report was filed against Manson citing unspecified sex crimes that allegedly took place in 2011.

But in August of 2018, the Los Angeles District’s Attorney office announced that it was declining to pursue that case because of a lack of corroborating evidence.

It is unclear who the victim in that case was. 

Manson’s attorney at the time, Howard E. King, told The Hollywood Reporter that the ‘allegations made to the police were and are categorically denied by Mr. Warner and are either completely delusional or part of a calculated attempt to generate publicity. 

‘Any claim of sexual impropriety or imprisonment at that, or any other, time is false.’ 

Before Wood, he was married to burlesque performer Dita Von Teese from 2005-2007 and they dated for six years prior. 

Von Teese has never alleged abuse by him. He claimed after they split that she couldn’t accept his rockstar lifestyle.  

‘But buyer beware. She said she had tolerated the lifestyle because she hoped I would change and threatened to leave if I didn’t. I was sleeping on the couch in my own home. I was no longer supposed to be a rockstar. I was someone who had to be apologized for. I wasn’t prepared to be alone. I came out of this naked, a featherless bird,’ he said. 

She told The Sunday Telegraph: ‘Everything went downhill after we got married. 

‘I started working a lot to escape my home life.’ 

California State Senator Susan Rubio has called for a police investigation, saying: ‘As a survivor myself, I was horrified to hear of these domestic violence allegations. We need to stand with the victims. We know they are almost always isolated from loved ones, making it that much more difficult to escape or seek justice. 

‘Victims are usually not believed or are threatened to keep quiet, so when they do come forward, we need to support them. 

‘These allegations of physical, emotional and financial abuse against Marilyn Manson, also known as Brian Hugh Warner, must be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated.

‘If law enforcement does not do that, we will not only fail these victims but future possible victims of the alleged perpetrator. We must not let that happen,’ she said.

Ex-porn star Jenna Jameson reveals Marilyn Manson ‘fantasized about burning her alive and liked to bite’ during sex when they dated – as five women accuse him of abuse

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, the adult movie actress divulged the disturbing details about her brief affair in 1997 with the self-styled ‘antichrist’ (pictured in 1997)

Former porn star Jenna Jameson claims Marilyn Manson fantasized about burning her alive and ‘liked to bite’ during sex.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, the adult movie actress divulged the disturbing details about her brief affair in 1997 with the self-styled ‘antichrist’.

Jameson, dubbed the ‘Queen of Porn’ in her heyday, gave the interview amid a slew of allegations by Manson’s ex-girlfriends who came forward on Monday accusing him of rape, sexual assault, violence and abuse.

The 46-year-old mother, who now uses her partner Leon Bitton’s last name, said that unlike some of Manson’s other exes’ alleged experiences, she left him before he could inflict too much damage.

But despite her wise decision Bitton said she was still left with some bad bruises. ‘Our relationship was odd. 

‘We didn’t go out long because I cut it off after he would nonchalantly say he fantasized about burning me alive.

‘Sexually he liked to bite, and it was disconcerting,’ she told DailyMail.com.

She added that although Manson didn’t do anything to her without her consent, she quickly cut him loose once he expressed his twisted desires.

‘Once he started speaking to me violently, I was like… goodbye Brian. Also the bruises from him biting me weren’t fun,’ she said.

She said Manson seemed unaffected by the split at the time.

‘He was fine. He moved right on. I’m sure he had a lot of choices at that time. It was during his prime.’

Bitton met the infamous rock star and alleged rapist at the premiere for the 1997 Howard Stern adult movie Private Parts, in which she had a minor role.

Bitton was unhappily married to porn actor and director Brad Armstrong ​at the time. But she and Manson began a steamy affair that night, which Bitton later revealed in graphic detail in her autobiography – though only after Manson kissed and told first.

In the book, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale, Bitton said Manson took a handful of ‘painkillers and muscle relaxants’ in a limo with her and had frequent bathroom breaks to snort cocaine throughout the night, before taking her back to his hotel room and bathing with her.

Bitton said Manson was ‘tall, girlish, childlike, massively endowed and covered in scars in various stages of healing.’

She wrote the rock star insisted on sucking on the underside of her arm as a ‘vampiric’ kink and asked her to cuddle after they finished – which she refused.

‘Since my marriage to [Armstrong] was loveless and sexless, I started seeing Manson on and off,’ she wrote.

‘But the more I got to know him, the weirder he became. He would talk about wanting to see girls f*** prosthetic limbs or sucking [Manson bandmate] Twiggy’s d***, (and I’d never be able to tell to what degree he was joking and to what degree he was serious).

‘And he wanted to f*** me in the a** a little too often for my comfort. Every time we were naked, he’d be going for my butt like a rat to cheese.’ Bitton, who retired from porn in 2008 and now lives in Hawaii, wrote she decided to spill about Manson after he bragged about their affair on Stern’s radio show. ‘Of course, I was very discreet about the fling,’ Bitton said.

‘However, as soon as the paparazzi photos of us hit the press, Howard Stern was on the phone asking about it. I denied the whole thing (on the air and told him we were just friends.)

‘But the next day Manson was on his show, blabbing about the entire thing. I never pegged him as the type to kiss and tell.’
