The 52-year-old singer (real name: Brian Warner) alleges in the new court docs obtained by ET that Bianco's allegations are "untrue, meritless, and a key component of a coordinated attack by multiple plaintiffs, who are cynically and dishonestly seeking to monetize and exploit the #MeToo movement." Manson's legal team also argues that the claims are past the statute of limitations and as a result, should be dismissed.
"As millions of survivors like myself are painfully aware, our legal system is far from perfect. This is why I co-created the Phoenix Act, a law which gives precious additional healing time to thousands of domestic violence survivors," Bianco said in a statement. "But while I fight for a more just legal system, I am also pursuing my right to demand my abuser be held to account, using every avenue available to me."
"For far too long my abuser has been left unchecked, enabled by money, fame and an industry that turned a blind eye," she continued. "Despite the numerous brave women who have spoken out against Marilyn Manson, countless survivors remain silenced, and some of their voices will never be heard. My hope is that by raising mine I will help to stop Brian Warner from shattering any more lives and empower other victims to seek their own small measure of justice."
