Bianco was interviewed by The Cut where she opened up about her experience with Manson whom she referred to as a “monster”.
According to her, she was a fan of the rock star since she was a teenager. She met him through his former wife Dita Von Teese in 2005. The couple divorced in 2007 while Manson and Bianco remained in touch though they had a platonic relationship,
In 2009, when Bianco was 26, she was contacted by the singer and cast her in the music video for “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies”. He told her that the topic of the video was on “kidnapping” and she has to pretend that she liked being manhandled by him.
However, the actress experienced physical and sexual violence on set and Manson himself was behaving erratically. She reminded herself it was for the sake of art. Besides, she still had feelings for him then.
Bianco was married during that time and claimed she was having a long-distance with the musician. She claimed that he would bite her when they had sex but it was with her consent. The bites left bruises all over her body.
The actress eventually left her husband and stated living with Manson in 2011. She claimed that he started controlling her life. She said, “I basically felt like a prisoner. I came and went at his pleasure. Who I spoke to was completely controlled by him. I called my family hiding in the closet.”
Bianco lived with him for two months. During that time she was dehumanized by him. There was a time when Manson cut her torso with her but she didn’t resist. She explained, “I just remember laying there, and I didn’t fight it. It was kind of this final-straw moment where I had lost all sense of hope and safety.”
She finally decided to leave him in May 2011 after he chased her with an axe around his apartment. But years after the incident, she experienced having panic attacks and more.
She said, “I couldn’t step up to meet that moment in my life because of what he’d done to me.” She added that Manson is a “monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women.”
As reported earlier, Loma Vista, Manson’s record label, dropped the artist and will no longer work with him on future projects.
