Marilyn Manson: Court dismisses rape case by woman

Media News

A court in the US has quashed the lawsuit by a woman who accused musician Marilyn Manson of rape, citing expiry of the statute of limitations.

Manson still faces cases sexual abuse by three other women.

The woman, identified as ‘Jane Doe’ in the press, had stated in May that the rape happened after she and Marilyn Manson started dating in 2011. She claimed that repressed memories of the incident stopped her from reporting the incident at the time.

The court became sceptical of the claims and the presiding judge gave the woman 20 days to refile the complaint and address concerns over the repressed memories claim. 

Meanwhile, the rocker has also been sued by a former assistant/girlfriend, Game of Thrones actress Esme Bianco.
